    Unless it's a physical limitation, I wonder if it would be possible to execute code to use the switch in handheld mode and output to a 2nd display simultaneously like the WiiU did. That would allow for streaming in handheld mode (which means streaming a future Super Mario Maker game for switch in handheld/touch screen/design mode)

    Possible but won't happen
     
  3. Technically possible, but performance would take a big hit. Using a HDMI splitter in docked mode would work though

    This would be awesome for emulation like DS, to have something similar to the emulator we got on Wii U

    Agree
    Emulating DS on some device with just one screen is weird

    For emulating DS maybe they could make it happen, who knows... Now for Switch games which already have a kinda big cutdown on the games it self to be able to achieve 30, 60 or somewhere close, having both working would probably make it run like a crap...

    If its for streaming just do the best way possible just like jjbredesen said, use a hdmi splitter, they are cheap and you will be recording the highest quality available at docked clocks while being able to play freely on your TV\screen.

    Not much of a hassle because after he is done with recording he can just simply unplug the hdmi for the capture card though he still would need 3 hdmi cables, but he can buy 2 small ones for the Switch dock to HDMI splitter and from the hdmi splitter to the TV making it kinda act like if it was a single bigger hdmi cable with just a small splitter in the middle and then the other he can use whatever size to reach the capture device\card...
