We are trying to use openlp with our new projection system.
We want to use the computer monitor to control openlp, and display the lyrics on both the singers' monitor and the main
data projector. I guess that a lot of people must already do this?
We have a Vista computer with dual SLI NVidia GEForce 8600 graphics cards (these have two DVI outputs each), with the following displays connected (all connected via DVI/HDMI links -- with the help of some HDMI-over-ethernet extenders because the projector and singers' monitor are 35m away!):
Display 1: The main Dell Monitor 1440x900.
Display 2: The data projector, 1024x768
Display 3: The singers' monitor, 1366x768 (this will accept 1024x768 too, so that it is the same resolution as the projector).
We have used the NVidia control panel to'clone' (mirror) the data projector and the singers' monitor. When we run Powerpoint 2007, it works fine, with the control view displayed on the computer monitor and the current slide displayed on the mirrored displays (data projector and singers' monitor).
However, openlp does not do this. It seems to override the NVidia clone setup and displays the lyrics on either the data projector, or the singers' monitor, but never both.
Any hints about how to get a singers' monitor working with openlp?
