USB-VGA at your link costs $30. Add a bit more and buy x86 with two onboard video outputs. Onboard video at x86 will be many times faster than USB video at raspberry.

Hi multi monitor support would be really nice
maybe you can integrate this usb vga adapter into your software:

as it's described here:

So no support for dual monitor in the near future I understand ?

Much more expensive then two RPis with two power and two cases?

Because it is expensive... :cry:

Why do not buy x86 hardware for dual monitor configurations?

Hi guys,

ok if a driver is a problem for VGA Shield, can you try to include synergy code in your wtware img -> https://github.com/symless/synergy/ for sharing mouse and keyboard.
So we should use 2 separate RPi connected on HDMI monitors and share keyboard and mouse.

I think this should be awesome!! :D

Thank you so much.

Perhaps we might think again about the idea of using slave RPi instead :)

There is no Linux kernel support for VGA Shield. We should write our own driver to draw. And it's old analog VGA with 18-bit (6 bit for channel) color... I dislike it.

I like this one more because it is located on top of the HDMI port.
So, is it supported?


arapozo, where are you located & did you order this board ?
I'm in the EU, any experience with delivery time of it ?

Yes.

x86 hardware runs well with two digital monitors. Not Pi.

If you are going to install vtware on those notebooks then it might probably be working already if the video drivers specified in the configuration include the drivers the notebooks have.

You can check it here:

https://wtware.com/docs5/twomonitors.html

If you are going to use RPi to replace them, then you are one the same boat as me, just waiting for the driver to be available so I can add my VGA RPi Hat and use my second screen.

If you check, most monitors already come with HDMI, DVI and VGA connections, so using one HDMI and one VGA shouldn't be a problem. VGA might be old but monitor manufacturers still use those connectors and I am glad because I will be able to use the RPi with one of those connectors when the driver is ready.
