Hey guys, I've not seen this in a search.
I'm wondering, my PC has a VGA socket on it, but I understand that the VGA is output only.. but my card has a VGA socket (for which my graphics card powers my monitor) and also has a DVI socket.. I have an adapter that came with the card, is it possible I can get my xbox 360 (I have a cable that has a xbox-VGA adapter on it) to be powered through my PC.. so the cable that gives the 360's video a VGA, and then the adapter I have that turns the VGA to DVI..
is this possible? like through switching between display modes.. I plugged it in my PC and it gave the noise that detects its found hardware, but when I activate display no. 2 nothing happens, except my desktop extends which I cant get to, and I cant switch displays, so..
any help would be nice, as I would like to have both running, and be able to alt-tab, for example, between the two.
Xbox > PC/GPU(DVI) > Monitor
alongside my PC, which is,
GPU(VGA) > Monitor
my gcard has a VGA port, which is what my monitor uses so I can see what I am typing now, my desktop so to say.
but I want my 360 to run through the DVI port of the gcard, not as a gcard itself, just to display the 360 so i can switch between display modes.. if that makes sence..
so I can sort of alt-tab between my PC screen and the xbox screen. altho it wont be as simple as alt tab but thats just an example.
