I have two displays hooked to a single computer. Display one is a Samsung LCD that runs 1080p @ 60Hz. Display two is a Hitachi CRT that runs 1080i @ 29hz. The computer has a 9500GT video card and the displays are cloned in the nvidia control panel so that both TV's get the exact same desktop from the computer. It works pretty well but display two does this when there is a lot of motion:
Is it because of the different refresh rates or is it because of some things I've heard about how windows vista can only do vsync on the primary display?
Basically... I want to know if I get rid of the CRT and replace it with a LCD TV that takes a 60hz input if the tearing will go away or not.
I use DXVA in Media Player Classic for GPU acceleration and if I turn off Aero, it causes tearing on even the main TV.
Is there some program out there that can fake cloning? Like can I leave the monitors configured independently in the control panel yet still see the exact same desktop icons, taskbar and running programs on each display?
