I have a dual dvi video card that I'd like to hook up to 2 LCD monitors and a LCD tv. I'd like to have either 2x monitors or 1 monitor and the TV on at a time. Is there a way I can do this without having to keep unplugging and plugging stuff in while using just the dvi outputs on my video card?

Yeah, I would recommend just buying a DVI splitter...

The only thing is your TV may default to the DVI display when it receives a signal.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
