Hey gang

I want to know how I can run both my XBOX 360 and my PC through my Dell monitor without having to constantly swap the cables over.

Is there a double VGA cable that I can plug into my monitor and then plug my 360 and my PC into???

Cheers!

Theres no reason why you shouldnt be able to use a standard KVM switch, you can pick a pretty basic one up for quite cheap.

Sorry to barge in on your old topic but I have a similar problem.

is there such a thing as a VGA Y-connector? (Two inputs to one out) I know it could get messy with the two devices running at once but what if one was off?
