Sync Monitor profiles on Multiple Computers

I have two computers simultaneously hooked up to 5 monitors. Each computer has a set of monitor profiles that all it to use between 0-5 of the monitors at any given time. When I'm using both computers, I have to switch the profiles on each computer to the matching profile on the other (i.e. if Computer 1 is using Monitor 1 and 2, then Computer 2 is using Monitors 3, 4 & 5). Does anyone know of a way to set a profile on one computer that automatically switches the profile on the other computer?

There isn't a way to do that right in DisplayFusion, but if you're tech savvy you could create a batch file that loads the local Monitor Profile via DisplayFusionCommand.exe and then calls psexec to load the Monitor Profile on the other machine via DisplayFusionCommand.exe as well.

It would look something like this:


Hope that helps point you in the right direction!

Ooh, great idea. I didn't realize you could load a profile from the exe. I'm not a fan of plain text passwords, so I'll have to see if I can make something in powershell. Do you have any documents on the available cmd or ps options available for the exe?

Also, is there a command to override the confirmation box on profile load? The input switch on my monitors sometimes takes a minute to catch up and I end up playing tag with the profile loads and monitors trying to catch the confirmation box.

We sure do!

You can disable the confirmation dialog as well in Settings > Advanced Settings, with the "Monitor Configuration: Don't Show Confirmation Prompt" option.

Hope that helps!
