Has anyone been able to add a second monitor for looking stats/attributes. I have tried with my HP Elitebook 8530p running Windows 7. It uses a ATI Radeon HD 3650 Graphics Card and 4Gb of RAM. I recently downloaded some views and filter packs from FMSCOUT which are great but when looking at say the squad screen the attributes don't fit on the screen. I've tried adding a second monitor, well, tv and tried to set it up using Control Panel - Display - Resolution but can only get a max resolution of 1024 x 768 and also can't get it set so that monitor 2 is an extension of monitor 1. I have connected the laptop to my tv by means of a VGA cable. It may be the fact that I'm using a tv rather than a monitor that's causing the problem but I don't know. I've searched the web but can find NO entries on the matter regarding FM 17 which may mean that it can't be done or FM 17 does not support such a function or more likely it's because I'm using a fairly basic flat screen tv. Anyway I do hope it can be done and would buy a proper monitor if someone could show me that it can be done. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Stevie
