"Picture by Picture (PBP)" for Ultrawide Monitor at 2560x1080?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi All!

After many a night researching the topic online, I can't seem to find anything that accomplishes the objective I stated in the title. I'd like to turn an LG 25UM58 into dual, 1280x1080 "monitor(s)", however this model of LG display doesn't seem to have a built-in PBP/PIP system. I do have a 1080p capable multiviewer with 4 inputs that can be configured as a side-by-side system using two of the inputs, but it doesn't support the "half-1440p" of the ultrawide monitor I have.

Has anyone had any experience with this type of problem or have any possible solutions? 

Cheers!

You might be SOL because of the resolution. If you're trying to operate two machines in this configuration, the OS has to be told that is a valid resolution from the EDID, and most of the time, you only get the option for 1080p or 1080p in vertical orientation. You might be able to have the EDID ignored and see if that works with the box, but that may simply not let the box work then.

 

My suggestion usually for dealing with something like this is to suggest planning ahead and buying hardware in configuration you need in advance. 

 

Alternative:

This would be easier to do if the monitor already has an INF file and then you can just modify it.

I run a 4K 27" next to a 1080p24", everything run just fine.

A small issue is if they run at a different refresh rate, then your GPU will stuck at a couple of 100's Mhz more
