Is there any way to set up a mirrored monitor setup with monitors of differing resolutions, but simultaneously maintain the native resolution on both monitors?
I have an onboard G31 video on my system. This particular motherboard has both a DVI and VGA output. I have DVI connected to an LCD (1980 x 1020) and VGA connected to a plasma 720p TV. When I mirror the monitors, the monitor and TV both display 1368 x 720.
I know that I could "extend" instead of "mirror," and thus fix the problem. But because this computer is ultimately for my grandmother's setup, using "extend" will not be an option, as it will greatly confuse her and make matter exponentially worse.
Is it possible to mirror and maintain native resolutions with some sort of software? Could I achieve this by purchasing two separate graphics cards?
Thanks in advance.
*edit* - I should note that I researched the issue and, for the most part, believe that it is impossible to achieve what I need. But I thought I'd ask the collective knowledge here first before giving up on it.
