Leopard & Dualhead2go

Greetings,

Has anyone had any success using the Matrox Dualhead2go Analog with a Macbook Pro OSX 10.5.2?

So far I can only get the two outputs to show two identical screens rather than a combined large screen.

Many thanks

Greg

OK. I got it to work with 2 monitors. But when I try with a projector (monitor + projector) the projector gives me the “Not Supported” warning. I’m not surprised, it’s an old model.

My question is will most newer projector models work?

strange
the projector doesn’t know that you’re using a dh2g

maybe change the refresh rate to a lower rate.
what projector are u using?

I’m using an EPSON Powerlite 5550C (it dates back to 1999 at least).

Make sure your monitor resolution is within the limits of your projector. I vaguely remember having this problem before…

your epson is an xga beamer
=1024 768 maximum

so put your screenres to 2048×768
