You can also use the mini display port to DVI adapter if you prefer to use DVI or HDMI video feeds, however the cabling for that is much more expensive.
I have been using VDJ for about 2 years in live club environments running video out to the house projectors or flat screens as needed. I found you can use a very inexpensive VGA splitter cable to go to 2 external sources using long VGA cables.
A more advanced solution, which sets up quickly is based on CAT5 cables (lightweight and easy to hang from ceilings). Black box offers a converter box that can take the VGA output and run it over CAT5 cable. There are different models of the transmitter box that can send to a single receiver or up to 4 receivers. Each receiver has 2 VGA outputs that connect to the device. The 4 port transmitter is $159.95 US and each receiver is $89.95. I've been using this solution for about a year and it works great! Video adds a difference to my show and the club owners have been very positive in response.

i FINALLY got it to work, the problem i had ultimately was just a bad DVI connector, I went to FRY's got a new DVI to VGA converter ($19.00) and i was ready to go...
actually did my first video mix at the spin lounge in uptown whittier, ca - i was great, had 3 huge plasmas rocking, i just went thru their s-video connection using this:
PC to Video EZ (www.grandtec.com)
everything looked great.

At the worst, you'll need to drag the video window over to the "second" monitor and double-click to make it full screen.
