Now harm no foul, after flashing the device (thank god it's USB connected) we got signal over DVI on the two 24" monitors. That 3rd, de spite the updated flash, 30" Dell TFT Monitor 3007FPW did not kick in. Again we contacted Matrox and they stated that such a high-end monitor is not supported (?)

Now, I understand that the device is not intended to run with such a monitor, yet the bloody thing can do 1280x1024 perfectly fine, and for a 329 USD signal splitter ... I really do expect support for it. None the less, we had to forfeit on the 30" screen. We swapped it out for a small old LCD screen, which is going to affect the overall experience for sure.

Three screens now fully activated, and yes the small one to the left was a bit of a last resort kind of thing.

In order to drive a massive resolution like 3840x1024, youre going to need a pretty high-end PC. We put together a system with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 4GB of RAM and a single GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB in it and installed a selection of some of todays most popular games.
