Use monitor and TV at the same time?

  1. Is it possible to use your monitor to play a game and at the same time use the output on your video card to play the game on a TV? I can do one or the other but have not figured out how to do both at the same time. I thought that I read that you could use Nvidia's NVIEW program to do it but can't figure it out...

    I dunno about nvidia, but it sure is easy with ATI...

    Yes, Nvidia can do it. How would they compete with ATI if they didn't?

    I'm not saying nvidia can't, I'm just saying it's so easy with ATI even an ***** can figure it out.

    Well my ATI has the yellow video plug for the TV, not S-Video :eek:

    it seems to be able to handle the LCD, a CRT, and the TV all at the same time:D

    its a laptop

    Great quote palmboy.

    Merlin, I used to have a GF 4 Ti 4600 and I had no problem at all watching games on the TV and my PC monitor at the same time. If you can't you must have something in the nView menu set wrong. If I remember right, all you have to do is have "clone" checked and it should work.
