    I have a Power Mac G5 with ATI Radeon X850 XT dual head video card. This video card is driving my 23' Studio Display, and the other cable is running to my HDMI Switch Box. (monprice, 5x1 auto switch) Since this is an auto sensing switch, I am having a hard time getting it set up with this video card. I choose to Detect Displays on the G5, but it doesnt see the switch.

    I have tried this with a regual 2x1 manual hdmi switch, and this works fine.

    Is there a way to send a constant signal out of the 2nd DVI port, so my 5x1 switch will recognize it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciative.
    Thanks Again guys

    Can you "extend desktop" the second DVI? Should be in the monitor control panel.

    I have tried extending and mirroring, but still nothing?

    any other ideas?
