How many monitors can I connect to the DVI port on the UD-160-a? The video on your site shows the ability to add 2 external and use extend mode, which is what I want. I have two identical Dell monitors each with DVI and VGA connectors, that I use a DVI y-cable to attach them to a Dell docking station’s DVI port and Dell laptop. One monitor is then analog, the other digital - extend mode works great with XP. The y-cable is DVI that y’s into one DVI and one VGA. I am replacing the Dell laptop for my daughter (thus will be no longer be able to use the Dell Dock). I would like her to be able to continue to use the dual-monitor configuration, however, with her new Acer AS5740-5780 Win7 Prem laptop.
With the new laptop connected to the UD-160-a, will I be able to use my DVI y-cable connected to the UD-160-a’s DVI port…then attach the two monitors as before and will “extend” mode work (when docked, she will not use the laptop monitor and would just close the lid) as she does when docked to the Dell dock). This will be our first Win7 computer, so not as familiar with the display properties, but mostly wondering if the y-cable will work or if there are other parts needed to get both external monitors working as “extend” mode, not mirror.
