Dual displays for DV

Hello there,
I know Apple has said that the iMac DV series (despite having a VGA out) can only display a mirrored image on an external monitor, but has anyone found a way to make this not so? I assume it's a firmware issue and there probably isn't any way around it, but all the same I thought I'd ask.

Not a Firmware issue AFAIK...

... but rather a hardware issue. The video card/circuitry on those models does not allow for dual monitors, except for mirroring.

If it were a firmware issue -- as is the case with some iBooks and G4 iMacs -- you could get around it.
