2 Displays through RPI?

Sat Dec 03, 2016 6:42 am

Is it possible to mirror 2 LCD displays connect to an RPI. So that both screens display the same image, if so what model is needed, and how would I go about connecting them.

Thanks for any help you can give-

You can connect two displays but the pi doesn't support putting different programs on separate displays. The displays will have the same thing on them.
edit: I forgot to add you need a hdmi splitter as well to get the dual monitor, but the displays will still show the same thing.
A computer is only as smart as its programmer. ;)

I own:
Pi B rev.2, Pi 2 B, Two Pi 3 B, Two Pi 3 b+, Pi 4 2Gb, Pi Zero 1.2, Pi Zero 1.3, Two Pi Zero Ws.

Just use two identical displays, and connect both.
If not enough power, one display may be darker than the other:
