Sorry I don't have the time to do the research on this one, but I'm working with a rental Ion this week. The rental house says the console only has one monitor. Period.
The desk has a VGA port and a Dual DVI port.
There should be no reason why I can't configure a second monitor once I track down a Dual DVI adaptor cable, right?
Do they both need to be via the Dual DVI port or can I keep the one in the VGA port?
In the shell, I tried to configure Monitor B without it existing, but it was reverted back to disabled. That's normal, right?
there should be a DVI Y-cable with the console that splits the dual DVI into two single DVIs. plus the VGA you get 3 ports. out of those three physical ports you can use two
That was my expectation, but the shop couldn't get the second monitor to work, so they didn't send it. I don't think they tried enabling the monitor in the shell.
Here's hoping they deliver in the morning & it all works out.
i think there was talk that not all dual dvi y-cables would work. but of course if they had the right one but didn't enable it would also explain it
