AIW8500 with VGA Monitor and Digital (M1DA) Projector using Y-Splitter

    Hi,

    I got a AIW8500 (no, not the DV, just the regular AIW8500) with a
    DVI-I connector. Lately I bought a DLP projector and now I want to use
    both the projector and the VGA monitor simultanously or at least don't
    want to crouch under the desk and unplug the monitor and plug in the
    projector each time I use it.
    Anyway, I've seen there are Y-splitter cables out there (i.e.
    http://www.pacificcable.com/Picture_Page.asp?DataName=DVIIY-1)... Do
    they work with a AIW8500? Any experiences?

    So far I only saw that it works with a AIW9700
    (http://www.3dgameman.com/reviews/aiw_dual_display/aiw_dual_display.html).

    yes it will work, i assume you got one of those dvi to vga adapters?

    note the analog and dig are separate in the spec
    simple matter to split them, as they are already split, dvi rocks :)
