Hi all,
Here goes with my first post.

I do alot of conference work using Macromedia Director, and my Quadro NVS card, on my work Desktop PC.

Everything works a treat, the trouble is, it takes alot of work carrying the desktop, and the monitors with me on site.

A great solution for smaller shows would be to use my Sony Vaio Laptop.

I've tried hooking it up to a second monitor, and all works well, part from the fact that all applications see the two monitors as separate, and not one super wide-screen desktop (which the desktop Quadro card does). I need it to see it as one desktop, so when I maximise Macromedia Director, it fills both monitors, and I can move the show stage to the second screen, (the screen all the audience will see), and all the working panels I can hide on my 1st monitor...

Cloning is no good, as I can't see my working panels.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
DC

Have you gone into the windows display properties area? You should see two monitors located in there. Click on monitor #2, and you should have available a check box that says EXTEND MY WINDOWS DESKTOP ONTO THIS MONITOR.

That should be what you're looking for.

...yeah, switching the second monitor/projector isn't a problme, it's just getting the card to see both monitors aas one desktop.

ie. on my desktop machine, the screen settings are 3840 by 1014 (three 1280x1024 monitors side by side).
