View Full Version : [ubuntu] Remote Logon + S-Video out as seperate screens

April 16th, 2009, 09:39 PM

I have a server configured as a PVR (with a s-video connection to a tv) and also as a work server (using remote logon from vista (unfortunately)).

When I log on I get to control the same..session (prob not the right word) as what is shown on the tv.

What I would like to do is be able to have one consistent output to the tv with my mythtv frontend and at the same time be able to log in and check my email etc without affecting it.

My gut tells me this should be possible because you can log on without there being a monitor attached however I dont know anything about dual-screening in Ubuntu or advanced remote logon settings.

Can anyone offer a solution?

thanks in advance
