    Two Tvs, need assistance please

      I cannot figure out which card in the series I have. It has 1 HDMI 1 DVI and 1 DP,

       

      I have 2 tvs I would like to hook up to it, a 55ich for netflix and videos, and a 42 inch for internet. So i can watch netflix and surf the internet at the same time.

       

      I found this article, but not sure if it applys to me

      Driving Multiple Displays From a Single DisplayPort™ Output with AMD Radeon Graphics Products.

       

      Neither tv has a DVI or DP, so I would have to use an HDMI adapter which I can order off amazon, I just want to make sure my card supports this, as well as knowing which would be best to get. Audio is not relevant because I have my PC directly hooked to surround sound.

       

      Also, some software similar to whats in the link would be nice.

       

      Thanks for all your help.

          There may be others but Aida64 will tell which model of R9 200 you have.

          You can use a DVI - HDMI adapter or Display port to HDMI adapter.

          BUT.. if you ever want to use three screens and at least one doesn't have a display port then you'll need an ACTIVE display port to HDMI adapter.

          I've never  used an adapter for my three screens but I do like the StarTech cables. If you can, buy one locally so you have the option to return/exchange it. Sometimes these things can be flakey.
