2nd video adapter in cPCI system?

Are there any catches to adding a 2nd video adapter in
a cPCI system?
My understanding is that if they are both PCI devices,
then they should co-exist, and it should be possible
to run 2 dual display system.
Any bugs in this rosy picture :slight_smile:

Hi Alex

Please check out our knowledge base

and do a search for “Multiple” and “two video cards”.

(make sure the correct OS is also selected in the search)

Thanks

Erick.

Maybe that is the “official” response, but I know you can get two video
cards to work with the last two releases of RTP. Hey pete, are you gonna let
this one go by??? Where’s pete???

I’m right here.

There are a lot of things you can get RTP to do, but they aren’t all
supported yet.

Basically, if you can get multiple monitors to work at this point, that’s
great, but we can’t afford to spend a lot of time helping people try to
do it.

When it’s `officially’ working, we’ll provide docs on how to set it up,
and identify which drivers it will work with and which ones not to waste
your time on.

I understand completely! ‘Unofficially’ it works great…so I can’t wait to
see what you can do when it becomes supported!
