Question

PC stick

Is it possible to connect a PC stick to 2 tv's and have it set up as dual monitors? Or jump a HDMI from one tv to the next ? Anyone have any good ideas or information on how to set up and part that I might need to get 2 tv's working with 1 Stick?

Is there a pc stick that can support 2 monitors? Or a adapter the can turn the signel screen into a dual display that can connect to the PC stick? If you plug your laptop into a tv with a HDMI and use it as a larger screen but with a PC stick .

To me this needs clarifying.

I offered how to drive two or more displays when they are the same content.

Now you write something about a laptop but are still not clear about if this is just same screen on more displays or something else.

Ok PC stick only, is there anything out there that I can buy to use to have multiple screens? I plug the pc stick into tv and use it as a computer, now can I connect another tv ? A total of 2 tv's and 1 pc stick. If I had a computer tower I would be able to have 2 displays, screen 1 and screen 2, left and right. Computers come with a graphic card installed and your able to add multiple displays with 2 separate displays. Now with a pc stick is there something that I can do, buy, use, make up to have 2 tv's as displays? I hope I made is easier to understand? Thanks.

That clears it up.

A PC Stick is very limited for dual and more displays without help. That is, you have to research if the TV has some casting capability like MiraCast or other. This gets complicated in setup so I will not detail it out for you.

So no, you can't do this as you would with a classic video card. You have to explore casting such as what the TV has (it's over WiFi).

-> That all said, I am working on an info wall system using Raspberry Pi's. We will use one Pi per TV.
