Right now I'm ff-ed up and hate all the time and € I put into into this effort...it's prolly just the cheap ass made in china "active" DP adapter (with supposed chipset (prolly MacGyver style)) causing the problems not making a native connection but recognizing it as legacy (like with my passive DP-DVI cable before)...
Last attempt will be ordering a cheap ass DP-VGA adapter.

Your field of view will be whacked, but you can adjust that with GPL Shift. FOV adjustment in GEM is helpful, but doesn't do a whole lot. There is also a program called FovEd that adjusts the field of view. I think it offers more adjustment than GEM does - I havn't tested it tho.
What do you mean that "FOV adjustment in GEM is helpful, but doesn't do a whole lot." What is not happening? You should see a very different view if you select, say, a 10° FOV.
This is the way to change the FOV using GEM – and keeps the same FOV every time that you run GPL:
In your sierra\gpl folder, delete the EXE that is for the cars that you want to adjust. So for the 65 cars, you’d delete the gplc65.exe application, or for the 67 cars, the gplc67.exe.
Then open GEM and adjust the number where it says “Field of View”. When you either run the 65 mod or exit GEM, the gplc65.exe will be rebuilt with the new FOV. Repeat with trial and error to get the FOV that you want.
Remember that the above only adjusts the FOV for the selected cars and for others you need to delete the exe associated with that mod. You can have different FOVs for each mod. This doesn’t work for the 69Extra mod though, unfortunately.

Bought a secondhand Club3D active adapter, and this one works happily. Running in 4320x900, good enough

Does your view cut off most of the instrument panel of the car? Mine does. That's why I need to adjust the FOV.
Other issue is, driving with triple screens I noticed I was always a micro second late correcting slides. I think this is because the amount of interior you see in the triple screen view is less than in a single screen view. You are basically sitting further forward in the cockpit in the triple screen view and therefore you see less of the sides of the interior and the sides are critical. I reasoned this was because the sides of the car are generally parallel to the sides of the track. When you notice they are not parallel like they should be you sense a slide. So with the amount of interior in the triple screen view reduced, so is the sensation of starting to slide, so you react a micro second late.
I raced the last two races using only one screen and I had no issues correcting the car.

I guess it will be hotseating as I've got already someone occupying the seat

But No Letterbox is the way to go. Should have used it before even with the 24" monitor at 1920x1080 (16:9) for FOV as well. Looking forward to complete my new cockpit setup over the winter, including another 22" monitor and a better wheel possibly. Might also go racing upstairs in a free room.
Also found some form back at 120degree FOV, PR at Glen 3.77, making me just -70 Might try to lower FOV slightly, especially when I have another secondhand 22" monitor. Still hard to get used to the tires being on the other monitors, but the bezels of the 24" are quite thin happily....
PS: the new racing seat is being contended between both my cats 24/7

Yes, the NoLetterbox patch did the trick. Looks great! Just did 3 laps at VIR - what a great track, and even better with three screens and no Prib. The drivers in the 60's had no Prib, we shouldn't either
Thanks for all the help guys!

Arturo says that too, and although I would normally defer to anything he would suggest, I simply can't agree with that sentiment. As online participants we don't have the same awareness that those real drivers had. Our fields of vision are limited (even with three screens) and although the sounds are good, they're not what real ears would hear on a track. Maybe the higher up the tree you climb the necessity for aids such as Pribluda diminishes, but my experience has been that I need all the help I can get. And not just for me but for the guy whose chance to win the race depends upon his belief that I know where he is when closes in to lap me.

Have tuned my FOV to a lower setting, right now around 106 degrees, to have most of the wheels on the other monitors...with Brabham mirrors hardly are visible, even at 120 degrees...isn't there a tool to change the sit position height?
PS: found it, it's GPLSA to change the height of the sit position (and rest of driver view). Using GPLShift now for adjusting driving view for all mods when I can't see the mirrors for example.
This is the F312 at 102degrees FOV...
