Aaahh Please help! Dual Display AND TV out...
Hi all, I know some of you guys must be doing this so please spill the beans....
I run my main DAW dual screen on two 19\" screens. I want to output fullscreen video to a TV but I DONT want to sacrifice a monitor display in the process. What is the best way to do this?
I know all about the Matrox Parhelia giving you Dual Display plus TV out but at the price they are going for I could pretty much build a third DAW and dedicate that to video playback on its own. (In fact, is that a viable idea?? I dont have any expensive time clocks or anything I use midioverlan)
THe way I wanted to do it was to install a PCI capture card with TV out but I believe that once I am in my sequencer (Cubase SX) it will automatically output any video to one of the monitors. I cant actually specify where to send the video footage.
I thought I could direct the captured video stream out to the capture cards TV out but I am told that this will only happen whilst I am in the capturing environment.
I have already bought the TV but have held off on buying the capture card or any other video card until I cant sort this out.
Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW, I am running a PC not a Mac.
