Hi guys, has anyone run 4x displays from a PC using HDMI runing extended desktop. The idea is to get a one picture over 4tvs to make one big tv, do you get what I mean? What sort of graphic card configuration would you use? How would I get 4 HDMI outputs?
Needs to be HDMI/DVI.

It seems that it is hard to run 4 displays off one card, most run dual head cards with two displays each using this

Quite easy. Put Multiple Dual DVI cards in a machine. We have 4*Dual Cards in 1 machine running 8 42' LCD's here at work which works well. Use DVI ->HDMI cables.

Thanks
