    Triple HDMI TV Setup?


    Hello,

    Can this be done? A triple HDTV monitor setup? I have a 22" Polaroid, 24" Samsung, and a 24" Sanyo HDMI TV's. I tried it once before and made screens say "No Signal" Or "Mode Not Supported" I am using NVidia. 22" Pol and 24" San are HDMI and 24" Sam is using DVI-I to VGA adapter. If someone has done this before, or can give me some tips, anything will do!

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. I hope I am not posting this topic in the wrong section

    I would say it depends on the Video card. And how big the monitors are. I run triple monitors on my Nvidia GT640. All are DVI though. My Video card has HDMI, DVI, DVI. One monitor has a HDMI to DVI adapter. My monitors are on the small side though, 19", 22" and 19". And only the 22" is wide screen. You need to know what all the supported resolutions of the video card are.

    All of my resolutions are 1920x1080 on the 2 tv's that are HDMI and the one that has VGA. Nvidia says that my 750 Ti can do three monitors and it can, just not the surround

    That is what I forgot in my post, NVIDIA SURROUND won't work on my TV's. Sorry if this confusing people. My bad, all me

    Thanks!

    If I enable surround it will only enable on two of my monitors. They are identical I-INC 19 inch 1280 x 1024 LCD monitors. The 22 inch 1080p is left out, deselected. I think its based on the resolution, they all have to match?

    I have a 22" and two 24" and same res, but different outputs, maybe that is the cause? hmm

    I don't know any more about it than you do. I enabled it once, but turned it off again when my main screen was left out. My 22 inch is between my two 19 inch monitors. Having a big gap just didn't cut it for me and I like my monitor arrangement the way it is.

    Why DVI-D is fine and the same vidio levels and data as HDMI outside of HDCP 2.2 or DV you wont be using on a PC anyway and if you arent using HDMI ARC you can run a separate 5.1 audio path anyway .

    In the studio I use HDMI to the 40" 1080P Sony and DVI-D to the 24" Acer 1650X1050 and VGA to the ancient 19"View Sonic LCD at whatever resolution it supports .

    In here it's HDMI to the 55"4K HDR Sony and DVI-D to this 27" 2560p Acer

    FWIW outside of 720P aka 1366x768 ( everything is Too big on a TV ) a lot of times 1440P is decent on a 24" 720p TV or maybe 32"scaled right in any case or 1650x1050 on a smaller 24 ish 1080p or 720p but most TV's wont read that like a PC monitor but it's worth a shot anyway .

    DVI-D or even VGA can do 1080p or more ( VGA with some optical degradation ofc .) which is more than enough pixel density in a 24"but the VGA screen we use in there is only for simple GIU work anyway .

    You probably need a workstation GPU for triple HDMI or 2 HDMI and or DVI-D or an HDMI splitter showing same image on all the screens or maybe one of the new high end gaming d/GPU and mix and match HDMI & DVI-D or display port to HDMI with any of all that .

    I so agree on that.

    I get what your are saying about not knowing more than I do about this. Maybe it is because I have a TV and not an official Monitor. Who knows, I guess we will see if someone has done this before and have both of our questions solved

    The reason why I am not using DVI-D, is because I only have a DVI-I adapter and I can't find a DVI-D to VGA adapter, or maybe I am not looking right.

    With your third paragraph, I think I will just end up getting a bigger card anyway and see if it works.

    A DVI-D to VGA Adapter or cable is used to connect computer with DVI-D connectors to televisions and projectors which needed VGA ...

    DVI-D to VGA adapter (or cable ) will work fine if you don't mind (some) video degradation from the DA/AD conversions with VGA on an LCD it just wont use ~ 2 or more pins on the DVI-D side VGA doesn't use anyway

    Google or search this at Amazon or New-egg or Monoprice "DVI-D to VGA Adapter" (or cable ) those things are cheap

    OTOH if you are planning gaming 1-3 screens at 1080p ultra on the newer games at playable frame rates you will probably will need a new computer or at least main board & CPU for pre drawing and at least a 2-4 GB Vram on the d/GPU anyway to frame buffer all those pixels @1080p ultra . CPU wise an Intel i7 hyper threader ( Intel sandy bridge or newer ) wouldn't hurt for all that


    Third paragraph in last reply edit re: display port to HDMI :


    You probably need a workstation GPU for triple HDMI or 2 HDMI and or DVI-D or an HDMI splitter showing same image on all the screens or maybe one of the new mid-high end gaming d/GPU and mix and match HDMI & DVI-D or display port to HDMI with any of all that .
