So I connected the 32″ HDTV on the PC. Apparently the graphics card can only do two monitors at the time, even if there are 3 connectors on the card. So I have to choose profiles all the time between my two DVI monitors or the primary DVI and the HDTV. When the HDTV is on, the second monitor goes OFF.
I don’t know if this is a limitation of nVidia’s hardware or the OEM who designed the card went cheap on this and didn’t include the extra hardware required to have all 3 monitors work at the same time (JBQ thinks is the latter). I know that under some circumstances ATi can do 3 monitors at a time (two PC and one TV connections), but for nVidia the best option I have heard is to get a GeForce 6200 PCI card and use it as a second graphics card. Good and somewhat inexpensive work around, but I am out of any PCI and PCI-e slots (one goes to my USB card and one to my Audigy HD sound card).
Kinda sucks to be hitting limitations like this one. I mean, come on, that was a $200 graphics card.
