Good evening all,
Fist time post on AVS, pleased to meet you all.
I was wondering if someone could assist with a question I have.
I recently purchased an RX-A2060 for use in my dedicated theatre room, running an overhead projector @ 2.35:1.
What I would like to do is attach a 2nd monitor, the monitor is one of my spare PC monitors, a 24" 1920x1280.
The purpose of the monitor is so that if I wish to play music, whatever the source input, I can easily switch the monitor on and display settings, music info etc.
rather than warm up the projector and waste bulb life just to view some information.
I have already tried connecting the monitor via the HDMI 2 output, whereas the projector is on HDMI 1. The problem I had was there was quite a distinguishable picture quality loss from the projector output while both were connected, this I could confirm when disconnecting the HDMI 2 connection.
Would anyone know if what I am trying to do isn't possible or if it is, then what am I doing wrong? should I be connecting in some other manor?
P.S The PC monitor was connected via an HDMI-DVI cable.
