Can two of these displays be run at the same time on a Raspberry Pi 4
I don\'t think so because it has to sit on top of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. It plugs onto the GPIO pins of the Pi for the touch capability and connects to the HDMI port for video. Maybe if you wire the GPIO pins to 2 displays through a breadboard and get an HDMI splitter like this https://tinkersphere.com/cables-wires/1358-hdmi-splitter.html you can have them both display the same thing at the same time.
