OK Here is my situation (excuse me if a little long winded)
At my fire department I initiated the use of a web page based availability system...basically a single web page showing info on each station in the department via a database
I want to have the page viewable at all times in the hallway of my fire station so my plan was to get a spare computer place it in a closet and runt he video cable through the wall where the monitor will be mounted so everyone can see the info as they walk by.
My chief would rather not utilize a computer just for that (even though it is old and sitting in the closet collecting dust)
He states he would rather tie the monito into a currrent computer (so basically split the video signal) and have the computer mounted on the wall in that room.
I told him I was not sure fi that could be done.
So here are my questions....
Can it be done in a way that the computer splitting the audio signal could still be used and continuously show the web page on the added monitor?
If it can be done, what would I need to accomplish it (other than the extra monitor)
Regardless if it can be done or not, what is the longest distance a monitor can be away from the PC? I wasnt sure if the signal broke down or not with a long video cable and I wasnt even actually sure how long of a cable I could get or if connectors are acceptible.
Thanks IN advance
