How do I or can I run 2 TVs via HDMI

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This question has most likely been asked before but here goes again.
How do I hook up two(2) Sony 1080p TVs using HDMI to my computer?? Or one(1) Sony 1080p and RCA 720p TVs.
The MBO is a Gigabyte 880GM-D2H, ATI Radeon HD 4250. Am using a 720p 32' RCA on HDMI, and a AOC 2217 on the VGA port. The text is not clear on the RCA.
I found the Galaxy 61TGF4AM5UNX Geforce GT610 w/cables but cannot tell if the ends are HDMI. Then the question is - is DVI the same as HDMI but different ends?
Let me know of some ideas. Thank you.

The Galaxy 61TGF4AM5UNX or MDT GT 610 uses a pair of Y adapters to go from a pair of DMS-59 ports to quad single link DVI-D. You should have no trouble connecting two TVs via HDMI using a pair of DVI to HDMI adapters or cables. When hooking it up, you'll want to connect one TV to each Y-adapter instead of putting them both on the same one. If you hook it up that way it'll work just like a standard GT 610 without needing the included MDT EZY software or any additional setup.

Thank you.
Now I am wondering if I will have to disable the ATI Radeon HD 4250 on the MOBO? Or will the Galaxy 61TGF4AM5UNX be the primary automatically?

I know hdmi can carry audio, dvi cannot. Other than that they are the same signal. I use a dvi -> hdmi cable to hook up from my computer to a 1080p tv as my main monitor, looks and works wonderfully. As for blurry text, 720p is likely the problem. It just isn't a high enough resolution at that size imo. I wouldn't even try to use it except maybe for watching movies or something. But small detailed stuff is gonna be rough on that resolution.
