vga

Postby zangeena on Wed Oct 07, 2009 5:25 am

What would I need to hook up 2 VGA cables to one monitor? I recently bought the VGA cable for the Xbox 360. The problem is that my computer is already hooked up with a VGA cable, and my VGA to DVI adapter doesnt fit into the monitor. Is there any way to get a VGA splitter and switch between the two? If so, how would I choose which signal my monitor is to receive?

you need some sort of KVM that you primarily use for the monitor.
I use a 2 way linksys one that has integrated cables.
like this but with USB and sound. http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/products/KVM2KIT
or more like this: http://www.pcpartscollection.com/usbdupomikvm.html
otherwise you can get a kvm box with or without cables and just use the ones you want.

so you connect one half of the kvm to you computer and just the vga to the xbox (as long as it has a normal vga port).
you change inputs by double pressing the scroll lock key.
