    I am getting my Aquos GA4 tomorrow, and I am excited with the possibilities. I was wondering if you could give me some ideas on how to connect my PC to the TV.

    Right now, I have a PC in the living room with two monitors (DVI and DSUB), where I do most of my work. Now, I want to connect the new LCD TV to my PC using the already used DVI port. How can I share this port? I really don't need both devices working at the same time.

    1) Get a second PCI DVI Card. This would allow a second DVI port, but I hear that AGP and PCI graphic cards do not go well together.
    2) Get a DVI splitter cable. Difficult to find... and I am afraid that it might damage the screen if I switch on both the TV and the monitor accidentally, and there is some resolution that one of these devices cannot handle.
    3) Get a DVI switch. Even more difficult to find in the UK. Most solutions are KVM - one monitor/mouse/keyboard controlling two or more PCs. I want the inverse.

    Is there another solution to this?
