    There's no reason why I can't have two monitors receiving the same signal from the same transmitter, is there? Based on my limited knowledge, there won't be any interference because the receivers are just...receiving.

    Just wondering b/c my girlfriend wants to be able to see what I'm seeing, but it's annoying having her look over my shoulder. :lol:

    There's no reason why it shouldn't work.

    you are absolutely correct. you're broadcasting an open signal that anybody tuned into the proper frequency can receive and watch.

    So you can either get a 2nd receiver and just tune it into the proper frequency, or if you primary display has a "video out" you could theoretically just get a cable and use the video out to the video-in on another display

    but from a technical standpoint, you could have 2, 20, or 2000 people all viewing that transmission... anybody in range with a compatible receiver.

    I use the RX in my fatshark googles but sometimes bring a tripod with a 7" monitor with a RX for friends to watch. Works great
