Question: We have purchased the iDVR-PRO8 and we have it plugged into a desk monitor. We would like a larger monitor as well, Is it possible to have 2 monitors working at the same time off this unit? One being connected via the HDMI and one connected to the VGA output? Will they work simultaneously?
Answer: Unfortunately you can not run both HDMI and VGA simultaneously.It is one or the other. However the iDVR-PRO8 does have two spot monitor outputs you can use. The iDVR-PRO16 has four spot monitor outputs.
NOTE 2: The spot monitor outputs only allow for a single camera on screen at a time scrolling one by one. The interval at which they scroll through is configurable. You can also configure which cameras you would like to appear on the spot monitor outputs.
