I am wondering if there is a way to have the GRUB 2 menu display on all
connected monitors or chose a specific monitor to load on.

I have a setup with four monitors but they are in different rooms.  I want the
menu to display on the "Control Room" monitor but by default I can't get grub
2 menu to display on it.

I have tried many different approaches to resolve this but none of them
produced the results I am looking for so I am hoping the menu itself can be
1.) Contact motherboard manufacturer (no solution provided)
2.) Contact videocard manufacturer (no solution provided)
3.) Contact videocard chipset company (AMD) (no solution provided)
4.) Change which port each monitor is connected to:
E.g. Videocard has two DisplayPort ports, and two HDMI 2.1 ports.
5.) Purchase a separate video switcher
6.) Purchase a separate video splitter

I am hoping something can be done with the grub 2 menu itself.
E.g. press a hotkey to toggle which monitor it displays on.
E.g. force the menu to output to specific display
E.g. push the menu to all connected displays
