Using a 2nd monitor

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I've just bought a small 17 inch montor to use alongside my main 40 inch.  Dipping in and out of the main flightsim screen is always a pain so decided to get a small monitor for EFB, moving maps and Vpilot applications.  I intend running it off the same graphics card as my 40 inch monitor.  

 

Are there any anomalies assosicated with running a second monitor using p3dv2.4? I seem to recall when I tried a second monitor  with fsx some two years ago, I had a visual artifact appear in my vc which i couldnt get rid of.  When i dumped the 2nd monitor it disappeared.  I hope this does not happen in this instance

 

Who else is running a 2nd monitor off the same video card for utility type applications?
