Eos Configuration of External Monitors Before v.1.9.5

Filed under: , [Edit Tags]

To configure external monitors on an Eos console running a version before v1.9.5:

  • The configuration of the external monitors is done in the EOS Configuration Utility (the ECU, otherwise known as the Shell)
    • To access the shell, press the Displays key, and select {Exit Eos} from the menu
    • Press {Ok}
    • After a few seconds, the {Settings} button will light up in yellow. Click on it, and go to the General tab
    • Select {External Monitor Arrangement}
  • In the ECU it is possible to configure the logical monitor placement to match the physical monitors


We have not had any issues with our monitor configurations in the testing that we've done in-house.  Our (Test's) preferred method of connecting / disconnecting monitors is:

                Power down Eos

                Disconnect / reconnect monitors

                Power up Eos

                Arrange monitors via ECU


If you do experience difficulty in arranging monitors, consider upgrading the console's software if possible.  The external monitor arrangement tool changed in version 1.9.5 and higher, and this may resolve the configuration issues.  Please see this wiki article for more information on updating software: KnowledgeBase: Updating Eos / Ion / Element Software
