    3 monitors possible?

    ok i just bought a 42 inch plasma [hdmi]to hookup to my computer as a 3rd monitor and watch movies.
    i already have a 23 acer [vga]and 24 dell [dvi]hooked up for computing

    the problem is amd vision engine control center only gives me the option to hook up two at a time.
    i thought i saw an option for a 3rd if i went to extended displays and deleted or added one or something but i m lost in amds menu i think

    anyone know if its possible to hookup this RADEON HD 5570 / Dell 24" & Acer 23" monitors and a 42 plasma?

    ideally all three would be seperate monitors and show different thing but i dont care if the dell 24 and 42 plasma show the same thing and the 23 shows different stuff or vice versa.

    right now the 23 acer is black and the other two are showing the same thing

    Re: 3 monitors possible?

    another problem has emerged, with the 42 plasma hooked up to hdmi, it somehow hijacks the sound, so if i am just surfing only the tv will play the sound.
    is it alright to unhook hdmi cables that r hooked up to pcs while they r on or shud one power down?

    Sure, it's ok to disconnect the HDMI cable with everything running.

    Re: 3 monitors possible?

    by reverting back to my main display as dell 24 and 23 as extended display , sound is back under computer control.

    still unsure whether my 5770 video card and amd vision control center will support the use of 2 monitors on the dvi and vga output and tv display at the same time on the hdmi.

    am i the only one doing this?
