HI.  This may be a simple question for some, however I have never configured dual monitors off 2 separate cards.

I have 2-AMD 7970 GPU's in crossfire mode.
I run only one HDMI display, from the first GPU.

I want to run another separate HDMI Monitor, from the second GPU.

I would like to mirror both displays.

The reason for this is 2 - 60" Samsung LED monitors in each side of a large room conference room

Can anyone tell me how to configure the AMD Vision Engine and/or Catalyst to accomplish this task? 

I do not want to make a stupid mistake and destroy my current configuration.

Thanks in advance for any help provided.

All monitors in a Crossfire setup must be connected to the primary card.  Just plug them both into the main card, and you can opt to duplicate the display.

If you disable Crossfire, then you can plug one into each card.  But since one card can easily handle the two displays, why would you?
