[ANSWERED] One stage to two locations? Can that be done?

I have three shows. They are running on a beamer on a dedicated screen. (one stage) But now I want to double that stage to another beamer, that covers the whole cyclorama. Of cause I can add a stage and add projector for that stage to all scenes in the show. But is there a quicker way to get my second image? For instance at the spot where you assign your stages to virtual screens in the stage setup? Could save a lot of work (-:
It appears to be possible using the Stage Setup/ Blend Maker. Create a blend of two displays that overlap 100%, then assign individual video output displays to each part of the blend.
I made a screen capture here.
The only caveat is that the displays may need to be the same resolution to get both outputs to conform. I tried a few variations with displays of different resolutions but could not get any continuity with them.

Another fast approach would be to split the cable.
HDMI splitter perhaps. This won't take any additional system resources (bonus)
split the cable
This was one of my first thoughts too. Wouldn't it be great if beamers started to incorporate hdmi/digital output/throughput, they still appear to implement VGA outs for some reason. It can be a great way to extend multiple projectors for projects that have matched left and right symmetry mapping and where you can use the projector internal options to reverse the image.
I've done this before with identical displays and it works fabulously.
