Laptop to 2 external screens.
« on: April 13, 2018, 10:22:55 am »
Hi I've a old laptop . I  want to use it to run two screens from it .
A 22 lcd tv and   a  20 inch monitor .

 It only had one output port on laptop . So was thinking of a usb to dvi socket to use will.mala or equivalent

(don't know.what other free front ends can run the digital margue) 
So  a game on one  and a marquee  on the other.

If this can't be done I was thinking of taking the screen  out the laptop and try to find something to increase  the length  of  the  laptop cables that connect to the screen .

Anyone.tryed this . I was going to use a pi3 . But can't run dual monitors or something like.mame.hooked
