    J5150P,

    You just answered my question a bit late, I ordered the ZOLTAC DP to 2X HDMI Dongle, did not realize it would make the two HDMI monitors connected to it not work correctly. I had my 55" TV on HDMI on one port, and the LCD HDMI monitor on the other port. So the TV took its realestate, and the smaller realestate, and made it one giant monitor. Albeit kind of dumb. If I had only one HDMI device connected it acted correctly.

    Each method has its purpose. Some people may prefer the single giant desktop vs 2 independent monitors. At least the adapter isn't too expensive and you now have it if you want it ;)

    Ok well trashed the dual for later use. Went and purchased a Startech USB2DVIE2 adaptor, downloaded the drivers and BANG 3 displays. The SP, Display port to HDMI, and the USB2DVI adaptor. So happy, now my work authorized a RT for end-user testing. I would rather have a SP at work, but so happy for the RT.
