muti monitor setup
Posted on 2012-03-22
The setup includes two video cards, with two video port outputs on each. The monitors include two LCDS and one 1080p TV. I have an LCD per video card to divide the power evenly. The video port goes out to a DVI-D adapter, which connects to an DVI-D extension, which connects to the root DVI-D cable, that goes into each LCD (Both LCD 1,2 ). The 1080p TV is output through VGA, then adapted into video port. One video card has two video ports occupied, with an SVGA adapter and a DVI-D adpater. The other card just has the video port output to DVI-D adapter.
The configuration is setup in a linear order. Once the mouse leaves the right side of the middle screen (2) in the configuration, it appears on the left side of the third screen (3). This is what it should do to my knowledge. However, when the TV is turned off I am still able to move windows into its location, even though the TV is off.
My question is:
Is it possible to dynamically take the TV in and out of the configuration so that if a window is moved into the TV's location (3), Windows won't let the window off the second LCD into the third TV?
The person who is using it doesn't like it when windows or files that they open appear at the screen that isn't turned on.
I dunno what to do.
Can this be done by script? Maybe script a monitor detection for when the TV is turned off so Windows can do a quick reconfiguration?
