I'm not sure where to post this, but I need to know if Orbiter can support multiple monitor systems.

I'm in the process of building this:
The three screens are 50" TVs driven by an RX2070S card using Surround (and can run at 3840x720 or up to 5760x1080), and the cockpit has two more (24" & 21") HD touch screens (that can show the same contents if needed or be driven separately).

I'm primarily building this for X-Plane, but a simulator like Orbiter would be GREAT on this setup - if (big IF) - I can utilize both the virtual triple-monitor with only outside views, and put the MFDs on the other monitor(s) inside the cockpit.

Can Orbiter, or any of its add-ons, make it possible to do something like this?

If not (yet), is it possible? What would be involved? I can make aircraft for X-Plane (at least I could 10 years ago - haven't done this for a while), and I can program in Python and was a professional developer for about 25 years (with Delphi), but I suspect extending this is C++ code and I'm not capable of that.

Anyone have any ideas?
