    Have purchased an LG 34UM94-P monitor that supports "Picture by Picture" input from multiple sources. Also have the LG "dual controller" software installed on two machines, one being an SP4 in the old SP3 port replicator. Running an MS bluetooth keyboard and Arc BT mouse to the SP4. Now I want to hook up a client's ThinkPad L440 using the monitor's PBP functionality and the dual controller software.

    Anybody else doing this? If so, what mechanics, hardware, software?

    Cheers, NATG

    Picture-by-Picture on the other hand is fugazzi. Unless running the full 3440x1440 in half the screen real estate there's either a) huge horizontal or vertical skewing based upon resolution shown and/or, b) vertical or horizontal letterboxing.

    Anybody out there doing PBP on a 21:9 ultrawide with no skewing or letterboxing? If so, which monitor, what resolution?
