    Hey guys,
    (I hope I'm posting in the correct forum)

    I need a moderately inexpensive computer set-up that is capable of simultaneously outputting 2 separate videos in 1080p on 2 separate large T.V.'s. (Video x on T.V. 1 and video y on T.V. 2). I'm open to either a mac based or windows based system.

    What type of hardware would suffice?
    What type of cable/connectors would be ideal?
    What software would allow a single computer to manage this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you can do it quite cheaply. I would use Linux as it's Very efficient at video playback. A dual HDMI output card is probably the only specific hardware you will need, most run-of-the-mill machines will provide the rest. Set up an extended desktop, drag the two instances of video player to their respective desktops and voilĂ . Not sure how the sound will work though.
