Switching Between X2vga, And Pc - What Do U Use?
Posted 07 March 2004 - 06:08 PM
do when you want to flip back and forth from your
XBox to your PC?
I manually unscrew the monitor cable and move it to the XBox
or PC every time.
I'm worried that If I use some kind of VGA switchbox, I'll loose
some quality to the monitor!!
What do you do?

It's designed to be used to swap mouse and keyboard as well (KVM) , but as long as you just plug one of the PS2 ports into the PC to get power, you can use it as an extremely high quality VGA switchbox, and its cheap! Only one downfall however, the PC must be on at the same time as the xbox since the switch draws power from a PC. This is no problem for me since my PC is on 24/7 but I'm sure not everyone does the same. You can by similar KVM switches which have external power, however i do recommend Belkin as like i said, the quality is great.

Cheap? $60+ I don't know about that,
I don't think I want to keep the PC on all the time, just to get the
video signal through... Sometimes yes, like when I am transferring files
to the Xbox, or doing online gaming... other than that I'll probably
have the PC off....
Any other ideas?

I looked around at a couple KVM switchboxes and found they are
The latest Tiger Direct magazine came in 2 days ago.
Guess what was on the back page?
A $29.99 KVM switch
I ordered it immediately and it works beautiful.
All I have to do is hit SCROLLLOCK, SCROLLOCK, UP ARROW
to switch between the PC and the XBOX and the best
part is that there is no resolution or clarity loss on the screen!!!!
This was an awesome find!!!
