2 desktops, 1 speaker Tags: Speakers Desktops Monitors Components Last response: May 22, 2012 10:49 PM in Components Share fatbat May 22, 2012 12:31:01 AM I have 2 machines (Win 7, Win XP) but only 1 set of speakers and monitor. For the monitor I have it hooked up via both DVI and VGA (though the VGA is stuck on really low res ) So the question is, how do I hook up my speakers so I can toggle sound between the desktops? I only need sound from one machine at a time. One is for gaming and the other for vid+music+other. Trying to see if there are other options than DVI KVM w/ audio. Thanks in advance!

Anyway searching RadioShack for an audio switch did not come up with much. Most did not support the 3.5mm head. Also alot of the suggestions were KVMs. I did find this though, http://electronicsusa.com/mk7.html and for the DIYers, http://www.****/id/How-to-Construct-a-35mm-Switch-diy/ (edit: linking to instructables is not allowed?) Still not sure which one I should use. Couple of other things I read. Works? - Using a Y adapter cable. - comp A (out) --> (in) comp B (out) --> speakers. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer fatbat May 22, 2012 10:49:55 PM Anyone know if using something like this would work? http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&... For a little over $1 too! Hope it does.
