ANOTHER way to 'mirror' DVI displays on a Mac mini
Authored by: vonkas on Jun 17, '07 04:23:23PM

Mac mini Intel video circuitry is capable of dual monitor support. You can see this when run under Windows XP/Vista (bootcamp only). It shows the second monitor in the control panel.
It might be worthwhile constructing a split cable where you separate the VGA signal lines from the DVI ones - I wonder if the Mac then thinks or could be coerced to think that it has 2 independent connectors..?

I tried this.
It doesn't work.
As soon as you plug a DVI monitor in, the VGA output stops. This is probably a software issue, but I don't know what to hack to get it to work.

I've tried this too with the same effect, but I think the half-solution that switches between two monitors is sufficient, atleast for me.
I keep trying.
