Ok, So I have given up on getting my HP 34C Single monitor working. The graphics display nicely but I cannot figure out the font issue. Maybe as I gain more experience with Morph, I can.
I posted a question in the font thread, would be nice to hear if font format affects...Quote:
In the meantime, is it possible to use the two DVI Outputs on my X800XT to support dual monitors?
When I boot into OS X, Dual monitors work fine, when I boot into MorphOS, it just displays the same output on both monitors.
Is there some setting I am missing somewhere? From what I am reading, it seems people are adding a 2nd video card to do this, which, well, seems kind of backwards...
Anyhow, what am I missing to make it display on dual monitors?
There isn't support for two different outputs from a single gfx card, and that's why people are using two separate cards to achieve dual (or multiple) monitor setups, but even then the desktop isn't stretched to both, you just have to use separate screens to get separate images (Ambient on other, some other program(s) on other etc).
MorphOS itself doesn't have any particular support for it, but luckily the old Amiga standards let you do the multiple monitors with multiple cards :) And luckily the dual output from a single card at least mirrors the image, it can be useful if you have other output on a video projector, but you'll still get other output for a monitor etc :)
