HDMI freeview + PC DVI on a 16:9 Monitor

Hello AV peeps! :thumbsup:

I've been planning a new monitor/freeview system for computer use and freeview. Basically i'm selling of my Acer 22 for either an 16:9 monitor with HDMI+DVI and Audio out. I have Audioengine A2's for speakers which will share both the computer and freeview audio.


Here is the Idea:

Computer - > DVI -> Monitor
Computer Sound Card -> Stereo Input B-> Speakers

Freeview -> HDMI - > Monitor
Monitor Audio out -> Stereo to X2 RCA Input A -> Speakers

I have tested the speakers to see if they'll react badly to 2 inputs by sending my IPOD through the input A while my pc speakers play something through input b, no problem!

Will this work? Is there still a risk of the Audio going to sleep issue with dell monitors in this setup? I'm sure the freeview can be interchanged for a PS3 or XBOX 360 in the future?
