Multi-Display Setup Issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

There is probably an easy fix for this but I haven't been able to find anything. I have two HD6950's in crossfire and I'm trying to hook up both my monitor (1920X1200) and my HDTV (1920X1080). I have the monitor hooked via DVI and the HDTV via HDMI. Both connections are on the same video card (top one). The issue is that I can't seem to display on both screens at the same time. Is this a limitation with the Video card? I want to output sound so I'm using HDMI with the HDTV. How can I configure it to use both?

Thanks

Try changing from one DVI port to the other. The HDMI is linked to the DVI port. I believe they run off the same Clock generator.

And since the card is limited to 2 clock generators eather both DVI-D ports or one HDMI and DVI-D. i am guessing the clock generator does not switch ports.
