    We recently purchased two new monitors for our Leviton light board. We previously only had one attached. We also purchased a video card. According to the manual, we simply unscrew the back cover and put the video card in its place. There isn't, however, any kind of cable or wiring to patch the new card into the board.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    If memory serves me right, the option of adding a second video card is optional... so you may not be able to(tough luck, :() I'll double check my manual tonight at practice.

    Which light board model do you have? I spec'd out for a second video card to add to my Innovator and found out it was almost the price of just getting a whole new light board! Plus a bit disapointed to find out I just couldn't go to Best Buy and buy a cheap video card there, wouldn't that have been neat?

    I called Leviton to check and see if it is a specific card and they said, no just a regular card you buy from Best Buy or similar! We have an innovator series board.
    Thanks!

    I have bought 2nd video cards for an innovator and fitted them with no problem, I suggest that billesc will be able to help.
    I sometimes think that the Leviton people are employed by another company to be as unhelpful as possible.

    Absolutely incorrect. It's specific to the inovator consoles. Definately NOT just a "PCI" type plugin card. I don't know who you talked to at NSI, but they've obviously never seen the inside of an inovator console. Or the manual fr that matter. The add-on display card connects like a daughter board beneath the main CPU board. There's a white IDC connector it plugs into.
    Good luck.
