    Dual displays
    Hi there,

    I am using a 20" imac desktop and i am wondering wether it is at all possible for me to mirror my mac display on a 32 " lcd tv.
    my tv has a vga imput iand i have been able to sucsesfully mirror both displays on OSx but i was wondering if it was possible on xp.
    At the monment i am only able to extend my desktop on xp but i want it to mirror my mac display.

    Kind regards Ben

    So let me get this straight, your running Windows XP on your Macintosh computer, and you want to mirror what is on your computer, on the TV?

    If I got that right, first connect them together and change the input on your TV to VGA. Then, just right click on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Settings tab and the option should be in there. There is either a "Mirror my desktop" checkbox, or a checkbox saying something like "Extend my Windows desktop into this monitor".
