How do HDMI 1 to 2 splitters work and will it work in this situation?
I have a new HP Envy 700-210 DT desktop with a Nvidia (OEM) GEForce GT640 graphics card. The on line sales rep said this card with the base 300watt power sulpply could run 4 monitors. The card has 1 each DVI, HDMI and Display ports I am trying to display 4 different programs on 4 different monitors. An HP service rep is telling me I can do this by using a HDMI 1 to 2 splitter in the HDMI port. (I'm thinking the splitter will just display the same thing on both monitors) I am skeptical.
Alternatively HP offers a Nvidia (OEM) GEForce GTX 645. The specs on line at Nvidia say it will support 4 monitors but that is ot confirmed in anything I see in the HP specs. Does anyone have experience with using splitters, these cards or running 4 monitors with their HP desktop??
