« on: January 17, 2009, 07:48:18 AM »
I want to have tournament director display the clock/seating chart/etc... on two tv's and the screen with the tabs on a computer. Is this possible? and if so does anyone have any reccomendations as to what type of video card i should buy?

yes it is possible... you will need a video card with s-video out and a s-video splitter such as this: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=493096&CatId=451

Any video cards that came out within the last few years should have s-video out... I think I bought a Nvidea card for around $50 just for the s-video out...

Well I'll need to use one with Composite outs but I'm wondering about the steps to put the clock screen on the TV's. Is that in the help section?

easy. you can buy an adapt-a-plug S video to composite. or out can get an RF converter and use coax. i had done it both ways. 

I have had a problem trying to get the tabs on one and clock on the other. so i just set up a clone of the monitor and put that on the TV
