    Hey guys,

    First all, sorry if this is in the wrong section. My topic is.. kind of a hybrid of a bunch.

    I currently have a dual monitor setup for my computer, but one of them is dying out.

    I'm going to be getting a Wii, so I'm also planning on getting a composite / component compatible monitor.

    Here's my planning:

    And here's the rear of the P2370HD:

    Hoping for the P2370HD to be an extension to my desktop when the source is set to PC, and to display the Wii when it's set to the Wii (RCA).

    Now for my question(s):
    1- If I'm running full computer (desktop on primary and extended onto secondary), and I switch the secondary to run the Wii, will the desktop still function on the primary?

    If so, will the sound output whatever's on the desktop monitor AND the Wii monitor?
    If not, then why not?

    Please note that the desktop's sound is outputted to the second monitor which is outputted to the speakers. Thus my assumption that the speakers would indeed output sound from both as both signals are coming from the second monitor in the end.

    I'll add some more questions if I come up with any.

    Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance!
