    i have a question - i need to be able to plug up to 4 pcs (via a vga connection) to a projector. i am thinking along the lines of a kvm switch of some kind and am wondering if this will do what i need it to. does this make sense or is it late and my brain has stopped working? (some people may argue that my brain has ever worked!!!)
    to summarise: i need a box that will allow 3/4 inputs and will output to a single source (the projector). all the kvm switches i have foudn do the exact opposite, or can they be reversed somehow?
    cheer all:smashin:

    Maplin do some simple 2-into-1 switches, can't provide a link 'cos they use frames :mad:, search for the product code VC46A. I've not myself seen any more than 2-to-1 switching in the direction you need, certainly the KVMs I've used weren't reversible.

    Such switching does exist, Inmac sell a range called "Classview" but it's hundreds of pounds because it's a specialised product, and if Inmac don't list anything else then there's a good chance it doesn't exist.

    Try looking at Search on Inmac's site for "monitor switch", you'll see them listed on the first page some way down but you won't want them at THAT price. ;)
