:::How to connect Companion 2 to a monitor:::

Hi,

I am using a cintiq companion 2 with the 2-1 cable and I am wondering if I can connect it to an external monitor.
It would be helpful if you let me know what I will need to do so and if this is possible, in general.

This way I could use the external monitor as a second or main monitor, while I am drawing.
Is this possible?

Thanks

The Cintiq Companion has a displayport connector for attaching a second monitor. The 2-in-1 cable is for using the Compainon as monitor/tablet with a desktop computer.

Just to follow up this question,
I have connected via mini-port to a hdmi port of a monitor and it works great!

I can either extend the cintiq screen, mirror or even disable cintiq screen and use monitor screen only.
Everything works fine :)
