Extending multiple monitors off of one HDMI port?

Hi, I am trying to run 2 montors off of one HDMI display port. I have them both running using a MOVCLE Spliter but I didnt realize that would not be able to extend the displays. Would I be able to extend two displays at once using an HDMI Switcher? Or would I perhaps have to use a dual hdmi input to usb hub?

Like the Startech USB to Dual HDMI for example?


I am running an Ideapead 700-17ISK Laptop.

As far as I know that HDMI switchers only slip the same image on different monitors/TVs.


You need to get an extra video card or an USB video card like the he one you listed (Startech USB). Other alternatives are to get an Lenovo USB Dock that also have some USB video adapters, or some Lenovo USB video adapters.
