Hi-

I was just wondering if there is an option to turn off the main screen while using the "mirror" mode through the vga port.

Thanks

I'm not going to say that I'm 100% sure...but I don't think you can do that (at least via the OS software)...especially because of the eMac's "All-In-One" design.

I mean you could do it if you opened up the eMac case, and disconnected the power cable from the CRT display...but then the eMac would just be like a "normal" desktop computer.

I was just thinking of hooking it up to my tv for front row access, and don't want to waste usage of the CRT screen when I don't need it. Any thoughts apprectiated. Thanks
