Any advice on hooking up a projector and a monitor to cause the least amount of issues with WMC? My coworker's build has a 4th gen i5 iGPU with HDMI connected directly to the AVR HDMI input 1, which is connected to the projector with the AVR's HDMI output. He has an old LCD monitor in the equipment closet which is VGA and DVI. I want to avoid handshaking issues with the HDMI and think maybe just hooking up the VGA to the monitor. Anyone running both? Does he simply need to use WinKey+P and toggle back and forth? I'm trying to avoid a mid-week support trip and explain to him exactly what to do.

That's what I have, VGA connection to a Samsung monitor and the HDMI connection to my Sony projector. Usually run with desktop extended to the projector and 7MC running on the secondary display. If you need MC to show on the monitor, you can move it manually or toggle using Windows Key + P.
