    Hi All,

    Im going to be running a VGA lead from the back of HTPC to my PJ.Thing is Pc' is also used for web,surfing,reading A/V forums etc.etc ;) So I dont really want to keep taking monitor lead out of back of my HTPC everytime I want to use the PJ! Is there some sort of "switch box" I can buy? If it helps? my projector has a VGA Input and VGA output My HTPC has VGA out and a DVI socket.

    Cheer's

    DINO.

    The switch you've linked to is pretty rudimentary and not ideal if running at a decent resolution - if you did need a box I'd have suggested the Kramer VP-200XL Distribution Amp.

    See http://www.kramerelectronics.com/indexes/desc.asp?p=VP-200xl

    The VP-200XL has 1 Input and 2 Outputs - and importantly Variable Line attenuation to drive the long cables that normally go to ceiling mounted projectors.

    Best regards

    Joe
