Please HELP setting up HDTV as second display.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a monitor 1152p and an hdtv 1080p, the hdtv is located in the other room.

I have sucessfully gotten sound and video to work no problem.

I have an issue however. I want to duplicate the displays in the way where I can just keep both the displays native resolution not 1080p/1080p, I want 1152p/1080p.

Also is there a way I can get sound to play on my PC speakers and the HDTV at the same time or do I have to keep switching between the audio?

I dont think Extending the display will work to fix my resolution problem because the HDTV is another room ill have trouble blindly trying to set up the videos/images/web on screen properly because I am in the other room on the pc.

Thanks

I don't think its possible to mirror the displays while keeping different res, that takes away the meaning of mirroring. As for your audio problem, I'm not sure of a way, although if you have a splitter, you can route one to tv other to your speakers.

I found a program called Ultramon it actually lets me set separate resolutions but it takes to much cpu resources and videos lag... strangely.


I just dont understand why is it not possible, doesnt make sense, in a another scenario lets say have a 720p monitor i should be able to duplicate it to a 1080p display, the 1080p display should be upscaled or just take up 1280x720 pixels on screen.

is there really no way?

Wait... I'm not understanding your question. In your first post, you say you want to mirror your 1152p display onto your 1080p while keeping both at their respective resolutions... while in this post you give the example of a 1080p monitor upscaling a 720p signal... Well the 1080p isn't really running at 1080p... I mean it depends on what your monitor does with the signal that it gets, some add bars, some actually take that 720p signal and extrapolate what colors the extra pixels should be (pardon the terminology). Are you saying that your 1152p panel is adding black bars to the image?

Im sorry for the confusion.

What I mean is I dont mind if the second display is a perfect fit. like the second display is running a 1:1 ratio on the pixels in my case i dont mind if the tv only shows 1920x1080 out of the 2048 x1152 pixels on my monitor. i hope that makes sense? if i cant get a perfect fit i will be okay with at least a 1:1 ratio running.
