Currently I have 2 external monitors connected to my MB1.
One I use for logger and other things Etc. I use the other monitor for the ESDR2 Program.
I keep seeing videos on Youtube where someone from Expert has 3 monitors active at the same time.
2 external and the internal MB1 monitor.
How does one do this?
I have wrote a message to them regarding this and have never received a response.
I currently have one monitor connected via the HDML Port. The second monitor is connected to the DPort.
Of course Windows 10 recognizes all 3 monitors. But I can't have 3 working at the same time. By that I mean I can't have 1 monitor for logging and other programs and the Internal MB1 and the second external monitor showing ESDR2.
Please let me know if there is a way of doing this.

I have explained this to you already. Do not use the Dport connector for the 2nd external monitor. Instead use a USB<>HDMI adapter. The MB1 internal panel display will then be active. The 3 screens can be set in extended desktop mode via Windows display settings.
"one of those USB>HDMI adapters" is vague and could lead to the wrong choice, as Manfred DK3UD highlights in a previous thread on this subject.
The answer to this question, together with an example of the correct adapter, has always been available in the UMA. See section 9, point 11.

I ordered one from Amazon the other day.
Should get it tomorrow weather permitting.
Will see if it works or not.
Right now, my MB1 screen is dark, which is no real big deal. I just look at the monitor screen with ESDR2 and rotate the tune dial.
Time will tell!
Hello Mark - thanks for the update. It will work. The MB1 panel, small though it is, can be useful especially for app GUIs that are natively small. I have DX Atlas and my SPE amp software (Term_1.3_USB) on mine. It saves overlaying these little things on the main screens. Plus I think the MB1 looks better with its screen in use.
OK, I finally have 3 monitors at my disposal.
I received my USB converter to HDML Interface yesterday.
I connected it to the MB1 and of course nothing happened.
Finally a box came up saying about the interface and did you want to look at the files.
These files are the software needed to have your computer recognize this device.
Once I did this the MB1 recognized the monitor and it came alive.
In fact all three came alive.
One thing you need to realize when you do this.
1. Identify which monitors are #1, #2 and #3.
2. Also which monitor is your main monitor.
3 In my case #2 is the main monitor, which is to the left of the MB1. #1 is the MB1 internal monitor, #3 is the monitor to the right of the MB1.
4. I had already set #2 to extended view so that was not a problem. When I activated ESDR2 it showed up on #1, which is the MB1. So I had to set that monitor to also display it's display on #3. Once I did that ESDR2 showed up on the larger monitor as well as the MB1 Monitor..
Good luck if you try this. It is well worth it, at least from my point of view.
