I have two desktops one windows one linux. I used to use a KVM switch to share my one monitor between both machines. I just got a 42" TV that's hooked up to my linux machine.

I'd like to be able to extend my windows monitor onto it when needed. How can I set this up?

You'll need dual output on the Windows machine that's compatible with the monitor and TV.

And then use a dual-monitor capable KVM, specific to your video connection types.

Here's one from Startech for example.
