Does TinyPilot support dual or multi-monitor setups?
I often have to work on machines remotely that have dual or multiple monitors.
Does TinyPilot support this function?

Unfortunately, TinyPilot only captures video from a single video output.
It would still capture video from a system that's using multi-monitor, but you'd have to change the display configuration from "Extend" to "Mirror" when you connect the TinyPilot.
So if I have 2 monitors setup on "Extend", TinyPilot would be able to see both of those screens?

To the target computer, TinyPilot appears as a single monitor. If the target computer is set up for "extend," TinyPilot would only see the output for a single monitor.
To get dual display, would I need an additional tiny pilot? Or is there any work around?

You could theoretically do dual display on two TinyPilots, but it would be a fairly poor experience. The two "monitors" would be in separate browser tabs. The mouse wouldn't work properly because it assumes the in-browser screen represents the whole desktop, so it wouldn't place the cursor correctly on the remote machine.
