Dual screen
« on: November 11, 2018, 06:57:29 PM »
Good evening everyone. My problem is that I can not switch to dual screen with Pub jukebox in the menu engineer "video options" remains grayed out. Yet windows recognize them and even my Psrockola jukebox software. I tried to reverse the connections but that does not change anything. do you have an idea. I thought about uninstalling Pub Jukebox and reinstalling it. What do you think ?

Hi raydanbox

Check in your windows display properties that your 2nd monitor shows there, and that your desktop is 'extended' onto your second screen.

my 2 screens appear in the windows settings and are in extended desktop. I also tried to reverse the connections but that does not solve problem. I have a hdmi connection and a display port connection.

Hi Steve
Now I have videos on the second screen. In fact I forgot to switch in the admin menu. But now In my Pub jukebox files, i have only mpeg4 videos. When I choose a track, the music start but the video on the second screen start with a delay between 5 or 10 seconds. Could you tell me if you have an idea why this delay.
Many thanks Raydanbox

Hi Steve,

if the hard drive with your music on it is not in your computer (like external or nas drive) then that could be the problem, failing that i can only think it would be the hdmi, im more inclined to think it might be the drive though.

I have 2 differents disks but connected on the same motherboard by sata port. So I’ll try to put music and programms on the same hard disk drive and I report to You. Many thanks for your prompt answer. Daniel Raydanbox.

Hmm, if both drives are connected directly to the same mobo then it might not be that, hard to say without seeing the problem, you could just try it without the hdmi
