One Media Player, Two screens

We have two Chromeboxes in our Middle school. Last year, we used them to run two separate sets of content (one for students, one for parents) to diferent monitors in the lobby. This year, we purchased an additional monitor for the office itself. We would like to have the parent presentation that runs in the lobby ALSO run on the display in the office.

We purchased an HDMI hardward splitter, and I get the same picture on both the lobby and office monitors, but the presentation doesn't "play." I just get the first Presentation in the schedule, and it sits static. How can I get the presentation to "play" on both displays without adding an additional Chromebox?

Jeffrey,

You're entering uncharted territory for us. We haven't tested and don't currently support this type of hardware configuration.

I would think that your presentation would play, but you may need to research with Google how hdmi splitting works on Chrome OS, I have no experience in that regard.
