Here is a few details on xLobby display 0, 1.

1. The ability to decide which xLobby media players will render on display 1, etc.

2. The new rendering system will allow you to playback content on display 1 while display 0 can navigate to any menu
and not interfere with content playback on display 1 unless the user wants to.

3. Reverse the rolls of display 0 and display 1.

4. The ability to run multiple instances of xLobby on a single machine with 3 displays and launch them independently to different displays, one xLobby on display 0 and the other xLobby on display 1.This type of setup allows xLobby to use a dual graphics card and the additional single VGA graphic card to display video as follows, ((Extended) setup the dual graphic card can output component video to a large plasma, lcd, projector, etc and the VGA output to drive a VGA touchscreen using Calrads S3 card each resolution can be resized pixel by pixel independently, so 720P on component and 1024 x 768 to the touchscreen. This allows xLobby 1.exe to provide movie playback on the component output and simultaneous menu control to VGA output for touchscreen 1. The single VGA graphic card will display xLobby 2.exe and this touchscreen can show and control xLobby 2.exe independently like its running on its on hardware.

The other possible setup is using xLobby 2.exe and the dual graphic card, (Mirrored) component and VGA outputs, with the single VGA graphic card output for control using xLobby2.exe as a fat client in mimic mode.

On xLobby V2 we sucessfully ran 5 xLobby.exes on a single machine with 5 VGA outputs to 5 touchscreens all in differnt menus controlling multiple audio zones, screens etc all on a single xLobby machine.

Exact features and details will be posted with the release.

Hey Wes.
currently i do this at the hardware level.
when i configure my xlobby multiple monitor support, does #2 still work in my case

2. The new rendering system will allow you to playback content on display 1 while display 0 can navigate to any menu
and not interfere with content playback on display 1 unless the user wants to.



currently, when i back out of media player, the video stops playing on the tv.
i am using the CCC in theater mode. (catylist control center)
so what you are saying is now if i back out of media player, the movie will still play on the tv while
i click thru menus inside XL, and the movie will only stop when i go back into media player and hit the 'stop' button.
is this correct?


thanks again

Playback will continue on the movie rendering screen so you can go to any xLobby menu you want. Options will include reversing the display 0 and display 1.

For example:

A. Display 0 = control and display 1 = movie

B. Display 0 = movie and display 1 = control

Again there will be some new options and features that we will continue to develope and add as we move forward.
