    Split a VGA In port into two ports

    Hello,

    Not sure how to do this.

    I want to split a VGA In port into two VGA In ports.

    The VGA In port is on a visualiser and I want to connect two devices to the visualiser and be able to switch between them without having to remove the cables each time.

    Thanks,

    techman.

    We have users that have a mac and a school computer, they flick a switch as to which computer they want displaying on the smartboard? Is this what you want to do?

    No, it's to switch between two input devices connected to a visualiser.

    I have ordered the Lindy switch recommended above.
