In display settings, you should also be able to drag the monitor icons around to arrange them in the order you want.

Curiouser and curiouser. Ran the new Contents with dualie support and did all the post permission settings and rem of kext.cache, etc., and now the other LCD panel is the active desktop and the panel that was the desktop is blank showing an orange lamp with no video signal BUT I think it IS part of an extended desktop because when I move the cursor to the edge of the displayed desktop it looks like it is disappearing as if it is jumping across to the next screen. So the displayed desktop seems to be behaving as half of an extended desktop although the other half has no signal.
And the Graphics Display preferences (enclosed) are now showing two L1950T panels connected to the 7300GT whereas with the old Natit.kext only one LCD panel was shown as connected.

EDIT;

It is also possible to open Displays Preferences (which now shows two screens) and move the active screen top toolbar to the blank screen (no video signal), proving that the blank screen is part of an active desktop despite not having a signal.

EDIT2;
HOWEVER WHEN I connect the currently blank screen that seems to be the missing half of an extended desktop using a DVI to VGA adapter, the screen becomes active with a full extended desktop across both screens.

Obviously, you have solved it for your current DVI-VGA adapter plus pure DVI setup so you are very close, Bofors. There must be one setting missing that will activate both DVI outs somehow.
Hope your dual-head DVI card arrives tomorrow and you can reproduce the above.

Many thank for your hard work on this and to omni for the first step.

I'm sorta confused on the process to do this. Can someone post clear instructions for doing this to my Titan driver. Thanks.

Ok, this is interesting. I guess we need a version with the NVMT key set.

I am continuing to assume that EDID's are not absolutely necessary and of course I can not provide them because each monitor has a different EDID value.

My dual DVI XFX 7600GS has yet to show up, but I am expecting it within the next four hours or so. But I am going to post a new version of Natit with the NVMT key set as well which might solve the problem people with dual DVI cards are experiencing.

EDIT: I have post the 0.02 version of Natit dual now, I hoping it will solve the dual DVI card problem but still waiting for mine to arrive so I can test it: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=32536

Remove your Titan driver and install the version of Natit that I posted here: http://forum.insanel...showtopic=32536

There's some properties and values named "edid-override" (I think this is the property name), "override-no-edid", "override-has-edid" & "override-has-edid-digital". I haven't tested these yet, but I guess they should be set for each display.

I'll do some more testing later, I added NVMT and the EDID's at the same time so it's possible that the EDID's had nothing to do with it.

I'd just like to report that the EDID's are NOT required on my setup. Just NVMT and NVCAP do the job!
