Answer: This DSAVIQ dongle is the replacement for the DSRIQ-PS2, DSRIQ-PS2L, AVRIQ-PS2 and AVRIQ-PS2L dongles. Unfortunately you will need to go with the new version of the dongle for correct functionality.

Question: can this dongle be used to support dual screen display on a PC?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no. This proprietary dongle is used to connect a VGA/USB enabled server/PC to an Avocent KVM switch.

If you would like to have the same display on both screens, a VGA splitter may work. See: Please note however, this is very different than a typical dual monitor setup.
