Feeding Field Monitor & Confidence Monitor?

Is it possible to for the A1 to simultaneously drive both a field monitor and a monitor for the talent?

I'm probably going to get a sub $300 720p monitor for field use now (using component), then upgrade later to an Ikan V8000 (via BNC) or the equivilent. Rather than have the entry level TV collect dust, I'd still like for it to serve some function.

Thanks.

If the first monitor has a loop out - yes - then just string them along...

I don't own an XHA1, but that's how I'd do it.

or get a small inexpensive DA and run the camera to that with feeds out to the 2 monitors

I got 1 from Radio Shack about 5 or 6 years ago for about $40 that feeds S or component in and out-works great.

I've got a cheap switcher floating around, that I'd all but forgotten about.

Thanks!
