Actually .. the software mentions that others offered should work too. ie. in windows you would bring up the display properties ... and there would be options to extend your desktop, enable this output device, etc..
often, you can have two *different* resolutions on the two video outputs, one is the native for your laptop display, one that will work better with a large screen. Suppose the vizio is 720p ... your screen rez then would be best somewhere in the 1024x768 or 1200x700 etc.. my laptop does its 16" display at 1366x768 but I can do the 2nd port at upto 1600x1200 ... but without some way to activate the two different modes, I would be stuck with just what ever my laptop normally puts out as the display for my el-cheapo 720p tv, which would mean it would adapt the 1366x768 rather than have a native resolution. (contrast is more visible when you have differences like your laptop does 1366x768 and your tv does 1920x1080 .. that case it would probably expand the smaller resolution and you'd end up with a pixelation blow-up where you'd see stair-step jaggies)
