I am trying to set up a home theatre pc . my knowledge is limited but here goes .
I have a system recently set up which includes :- intel q6600 quad cpu , 8600gt graphics card . I have purchased a Hauppage nova s plus tv card for freeview, yet to be installed .

I have a plasma tv and sony home theatre sound system running mysky(not HD) . Hopefully I will get these plugged into the system when I have done more research . I would like to output to the tv and computer lcd monitor separate signals ,eg:freeview to the tv and sky to the monitor , or vice verser . The video card has 2 DVI sockets + s-video out , the monitor has DVI in , and the tv HDMI among numerous other inputs .

I am having difficulty getting info on the display problem .If anybody can help directly , or point me in the direction of a fountain of knowledge it will be much appreciated . Thanks

I'm not sure if it is possible using a single graphics card. The only, truly independent way to use two monitor (etc.) is with dualview, but I've never understood how to use it properly.

I have twin monitors -one LCDTV & a projector- but I use them independently (single display) with the same desktop by using ctrl+D (setup hotkey with nView Desktop Manager enabled) to switch between them. Otherwise the projector (X1 4:3 SVGS model) doesn't have correct aspect ratio for media playback in clone mode.
