If it has both video ports, there's probably a way to switch between sources. Is there a button anywhere that looks like it does that?
Hi Crisis Causer...
Yes, it let's me select the input, analog or digital.
If I press it it waits for an analog signal (it's connected to dvi now), until I press it again and goes back to digtal.
Since I don't have the 2nd system yet, I can't try this out, but do you know if I can switch between systems on the fly? I mean, with both systems running at the same time.
I read over at the dell forums that the monitor will "lock" itself into the mode of the system it booted with, saying soimething like if you connect with dvi, but switch to vga, the pixel clock will be off, giving weird images. They said that dvi will be fine because it is digital..
anyways.. I just wanted to know if it could handle 2 systems at the same time and not fry on me...
i had a friend who had a dell tv that he would use picture in picture to use two computers or watch tv on one side
i am thinking of doing the same thing . Plz keep this post updated.
If the guys over at the dell forums are saying it will lock up, then it's best to follow their advice considering they have the monitor and have tested it. But give it a shot, it won't necessarily hurt your monitor, and you'll be able to find out for sure ^_^.
