I'm afraid so :oops: but if you take a screenie of the working advanced resolution settings in nv control panel, it'll come in handy to speed up the process next time...

I have been able to run at [email protected] at the first try thanks to the nvidia custom resolution values on the 1st post, even though I do not know what the pixel values mean.

Now I have been trying to get 5760x1080 since many posts I have read say it can be done but only if the monitors can run at a refresh rate of 50Hz.

I have been able to set a custom resolution of 1920x1080 with all monitors individually @ 50Hz connected to my GeForce 9800GX2 but when I connect all 3 screens to TH2GO and try to set the resolution at [email protected], all 3 screens display "Out Of Range".

Since I originally had the same message for the 5040x1050 res until I found this forum and then was able to get [email protected] with the values for the nvidia costum resolution shown in the 1st post on my first try, I was wondering if anyone would know what the same values would be for a [email protected] resolution, or how to calculate them other then spending a lot of time fooling around with the values to find one that works.

If this is not the proper tread to ask this, please let me know where I could ask.

Thanks

Look at post #5 in this thread;

http://widescreengamingforum.com/forum/14783/th2go-5760x1080-bezel-management-issue

I was never able to get through the nvidia test of 5760x1080 so I ended up resetting a custom res for 5040x1050 but when I went to the Powerdesk manager to set that res, 5760x1080 was an option and I selected it.

Hi all. Been a while since Ive been here.

I bought and installed my Matrox DTH2go digital a couple of years ago, and have been using the 8.17.11.9562 drivers ever since. I know, I know, get in the 21st century Tom. But its been working fine and if it isn't broke don't fix it they always tell me. I'm just curious at to what the latest driver is that will still allow me to run the DHT2go with my 3 monitors, or should I just bite the bullet and go with the newer display drivers, and shelve the Matrox hardware. Only sim I run is iRacing, and my framerates have always been good there. I'm hesitant to upgrade understandably, as I found it somewhat annoying to run through all the neccesary updating to the desktop software and such. I run the evga 295GTX with the two dvi, and one HDMI ports, but my 3 Dell 2209wa's do not have an HDMI in.

Hep me, Hep me.

Thank you

Hi mate,

I ran the latest Nvidia drivers on a pair of GTX560s in SLI with a Triplehead2Go which was using the latest drivers without any issue.

In fact, my testing showed that a Triplehead2Go performs better than Nvidia Surround when I tested it on the same video cards, Check out this page of my comparison article: Red vs Green vs Blue - Game Benchmarks.

Plus you will avoid the annoying single monitor fullscreen application performance drop that Nvidia Surround has that I talk about at the start of the page. Also, I am not sure that you can run 3 monitors off a single Nvidia card. I think you will find that if you used a HDMI output, it would disable a DVI output. You can get HDMI to DVI cables if you needed one.

I would think you could safely upgrade all your drivers and continue using what you have.

Thank you. I did read you other reply to my question the other day, but was just unsure on everything. I appreciate your effort to help me again. I'll give them a shot and see what happens. Thanks again.
