AMD A8-3850 with ASUS F1A75-V PRO FM1 AMD A75

Hello. I have the above listed equipt. in a system I built, using windows 7. My intent, was and still is, is to have to seperate capable video systems available from my one pc and a little confused at what is going on, or what I am doing wrong. I most likely do not have the correct hardware.
What I want is to be able to run movies to my t.v, with a vga hook up as well as running another t.v. remotely, with say hdmi. My intent is to have the a8-3850 for one video source, and also a newly installed GeForce GT 520 for my other video source. I want this set up to be independent from each other, as if though it were to sepate pc's. Windows is currently recognizing the geforce vid card, as this is what is driving my flat monitor. When i go to install the catalyst ati for the a8-3850 onboard graphics, it apparently is not allowed.
Could somebody please explain to me, what I need to do, to make this work?
It was mentioned by a tech at AMD today, that I should have gotten the same type of chipset of video card, that matched the amd/asus stuff, and not have bought the geforce.
I thought I did my research prior to...but apparently I did not.
Thank you for any direction...DM

I think I know what your trying to get at, but I don't know if you can do both at the same time. Meaning that I'm not sure if both the on die GPU and a discrete card will be recognized at the same time, its either one or the other. But I'm not quite sure how these new "APU's" handle that.

I've found out, that I should have gotten a Amd/Ati 6000 series card, then there wouldn't be a conflict. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do what I want, though, either.
It'd be sorta like a dual tuner on a satellite receiver, only this'd be a dual video processor. Unsure why this wouldn't be available. I mean this is not necessary, but it will happen, that my kids will want to be watching a movie from the PC (avi type) and I'll be in the budwa, wanting to watch a different movie (avi). I must be going about this either the wrong way, or maybe not explaining myself properly.

All things considering you shouldn't even need a second video card for what you want to do. That motherboard has 4 video connections on it (VGA, DVI, HDMI and displayport) and you can use any two at the same time, only limited by what it shows in this chart from the manual,

Just a matter of connecting both TV's/displays appropriately, and then opening (or moving) the program for the kids movie to the correct display and run yours on the primary.

That would work but it would be more like a rig, the question of running two movies using two different GPU's at the same time from the same PC is still unresolved. But I think I'm in the same boat as stormy13 simply because I don't think what your asking is possible. The only catch with stormy13's suggestion is that running two vids concurrently might not work... work well at least, especially HD formats like Blu-ray, etc.

audio

I'm pulling the geforce and just using the onboard. No way to do this, as the audio would not work. Only one source of output. Onward march! Good thought, though I guess. Take care

Ways around that too. If it works the easiest would be,

1. Use the HDMI connection to the TV in the other room

2. Use any of the others for the display/TV where the computer is

3. Set the HDMI audio as the default playback device in the Windows audio properties, and use the program of choice for movie watching.

4. Use a program other than WMP on the main display that has the option in it to use something other than the default playback audio device (Winamp for example), and set it to use the onboard audio or sound card.

That should get you different audio and video playback to both displays.

Usure how one set of audio outs, is to decypher the output, while there are 2 different simultaneous feeds going. You'd need seperate, independent channels. (like a dual tuner sat. reciever) This has had to been hashed over some time or another?

You're forgetting one thing (or don't know about it), the HDMI audio is part of the AMD graphics and works independently of any other audio device. The graphic here should help explain it,

AMD A8-3850 APU review

The HDMI audio is part and controlled by the APU, where the onboard audio is totally separate and controlled by the chipset. In essence you have two totally separate sound cards in the computer, and when configured properly can both be used at the same time.

Well damn, thank you for pointing this out. Didn't have a clue. I should be set up then. I'll have a look and try to post back when I get this thing finally set up. It will be awhile, as this is a for-fun project. Got 3 wooded acres to maintain....
