Need Help with Cloning Three Monitors

I have a setup with a PC that has a monitor that is broadcasting to two additional monitors in other locations. The 2 additional monitors need to be cloned to the first. In Windows, I have monitor 1 and 2 duplicated, with 3 extended. (apparently, Windows only allows you to duplicated 2 monitors) In displayfusion 9.4.3 free version, the configuration is as follows: Monitors 1 and 2 are enabled and cloned, and 3 is enabled. Monitors 2 and 3 are connected via usb to VGA adapters. I need to be able to clone all three monitors. I was able to use this setup on a different PC with displayfusion.

For reference, the PC I’m using is running Windows 10. I’ve included some screenshots of the configuration. "displayfusion 1 and 2" are screens of the setup I'm trying to make work. "station 4 dsp" is a screen of the setup I'm trying to duplicate.

Thanks.

I was trying to respond to your emails as well, but I'm guessing they didn't make it through to your inbox? The show up as sent over here, so not sure what's going ont here :(

At any rate, here was my reply :)

Windows will allow you to clone more than 2 monitors, but they all need to be connected to the same physical video card. DisplayFusion has the same limitation because it uses the Windows API in the backend to set the monitor configuration.

How is monitor 3 connected? I noticed that 1 and 2 show as being connected to an Intel Graphics 4600, but monitor 3 shows as being connected to an Unknown card.

Not sure if you received my email, but monitor one is connected to the PC by VGA in to the graphics card. The other two monitors are connected by USB to VGA adapters.

I did, yep! Unfortunately there isn't really anything we can do here. I'm not sure exactly how Windows decides which USB adapters you're allowed to clone to, but it's not something that we are able to override :(

Sorry!
