2 PC’s into 1 Monitor

Hey everyone! I’ve been lurking here for years & love the site & now I have a question. I have a Samsung 204T which I love & am wondering if you can have 2 PC’s connected to it at the same time – one through the digital & the other through the analog input. Then switch between them with the source select either with the OSM or the physical button.

Samsung’s website is sorely lacking & the manual is also…

I want to try to avoid buying another monitor & understand that the KVM switches out there don’t get along with wireless desktops plus my main PC is digital so if I went the KVM way, the switch would cost as much as a smaller monitor.

Thanks,
Shemp

Why not try it and see what happens? IMO logically it should work.

The neat thing about KVM switches IMO is that you can hide the computers in a wardrobe or something. But yeah, you are probably right - they can be quite costly.

Not sure if it is as simple with Samsung but most NEC LCD's haev a select button on the bottom front bezel adn you just hit this to toggle between computers.
