    Hola

    Here's what I want to do. I want to be playing a game on a computer & monitor and have it show what i'm doing on a tv at the same time. What's the easyest way to go about doing such a thing? I'de imagine it can't be to terribly difficult.


    i have a ati 9600 pro vid card

    show what you're doing as in just splitting the signal so somebody is seeing the same thing as you?

    Not familiar with the ATI's but I know the software program ultramon lets you mirror displays.

    Ya it's right in the display properties of the card - just go thru it and you'll find it. I think by default it will mirror anyway as soon as you plug two devices into the back of the card

    DVI=Digital Video Interface
    LCD and Plasma TVs often have this type of interface. better than 15 pin analog cable.
    Most TVs would be through the S-video.

    hmm well the tv is on it's way (55" HDTV) but my friend didn't list all the specs so I guess I'll see if it has that type of interface besides S-video
