2 pcs 1 monitor
1 pc is hmdi - pc2 is vga
monitor is hdmi + vga socket
attached 2 cables to the monitor 1x vga 1 x hmdi
plugged them into both pcs but powered off.
which ever 1 i turn on - monitor sits in stand by.
if i just run 1 pc through the monitor say hmdi or vga works...
attached 2 pcs 1 vga pc with cord to monitor and 1 pc to monitor
on hdm i --- monitor just blinks and standby
bottom line i have 2 desk tops pcs - 1 hdm1 gpu socket
and 1 desktop gpu vga - some how or way im looking for
a way to run them both through this monitor which does have
a vga/hdmi port --- it just doesnt seem to like 2 pcs hooked to it
or im doing it wrong ?
well, even when a computer is "off" it will still send signals to the monitor(to tell it when to be on or off). the computer you're not using would have to be completely off(unplugged/psu switched off) for that to work. monitors are dumb, not "smart" like tvs that can deal with more than one input.
