it looks like you have an dvi with a vga adapter on it now. Then going up an HDMI then a display port. Not sure what kind of card is installed in you computer, when you find out you'll know what the ports are...I can't really tell for sure from the picture.
Blu ray encryption was cracked like two weeks after its announcement or something. I don't believe in laws that tell me what I can't do with my own hardware, or how I'm allowed to play a disc I've paid for.
Civil disobedience is the duty of every citizen when laws are used to oppress people in the name of corporate profits.
No, the laws exist to protect the interests of the few against the rights of many. Corporations that have become fat, lazy and complacent want to keep their ancient business model alive artificially, so they lobby for laws that oppress citizens to protect their own interests.
Sharing of information is a fundamental right. If "piracy" hurts your business, then you're doing business wrong. It has been proven many times that filesharing causes no measurable loss to rightsholders. But that's not the reason for the "anti-piracy laws", the real reason for them is that the traditional gatekeepers are afraid of the internet. They want to cripple the internet with horrible draconian censorship laws to protect their own interests, because they're scared of becoming irrelevant. They're scared that people and artists will notice how unnecessary they are, and that they will lose business.
See, they want to keep their middleman role where they make money from other people's efforts. They hate the idea that anyone can self-publish and crowdsource funds on the internet, without paying them, the middlemen. That's what the laws are really about, that's what the copyright mafia tries to accomplish. They want a crippled internet which they can control, they want back the power they had before the internet when they could control who got to publish music, movies or books. The whole "piracy hurts artists" thing is just an excuse.
okay, new question. The display port thing didn't work out in the short term-so I got a temp VGA splitter but it won't recognize the monitor as 2. It shows them both as 1 when I click detect. Any idea what to do? D:>
What model is the Cintiq? Get ready to go hunting for those cables … You should be able to just plug and go with a display port cable. And yes your card supports up to 2 displays driven at the same time.
Yes the top port is DP one, like what say the others you can buy an adapter. I just advice you, in more, to take care of normalization way. I mean it can be analog (VGA or DVI-A) or numeric (DVI-D or HDMI) Be sure of what you take ^^ With VGA converter, no problem possible, or direct HDMI if your tablet support it.
Wait, so this thing will connect to another VGA, right? D: I'm really terrible at this. I'm super confused too, because apparently past me was using two monitors with my laptop and then later with my PC and I had no trouble at all putting it together.
Actually after looking at the Cintiq 24HD stats ([link] ) it looks like you can connect directly to your display port with it... So you may just need a Display port Cord (which may have come with the Cintiq)
So yes you can use an HDMI or VGA with it, but you'll need an adapter. A lot of these style of graphic cards come with an adapter. However if you don't have one you can order one or pick one up for either a display port to VGA or HDMI...
Oh wait, I have another question; So I showed the picture to people at Best, buy, radio shack and walmart and all of them are dead certain its HDMI or they have no idea, or they don't carry it and were extremely unspecific about what I need to buy. The HDMI end isn't wide enough to fit the port even though it looks like an HDMI. Do you kno the exact thing I'd need to buy? JBF1 was talking about something "I mean it can be analog (VGA or DVI-A) or numeric (DVI-D or HDMI)" I don't know what that means D:
