I have a PC monitor which has two ports, one for DVI and one for HDMI.
My PC is currently connected to the monitor through a DVI cable.
I have a Cable Tv Digibox which is also connected to the same monitor through an HDMI cable.
With both the PC and the Digibox turned on and connected to the monitor, I am only able to view the Cable Tv Digibox input on my monitor, if I remove the DVI cable connected to my PC. Or possibly, if my pc sleeps the monitor (not sure though).
Is there a way to control the monitor from my Windows 7 pc so that I can easily switch between the DVI input from my PC and the Cable Tv Digibox input from the HDMI?
It seems possible to connect the Digibox to my PC, instead of directly to the monitor, using the HDMI connector, since the PC also has an HDMI port.
The Sky Cable Digibox does not have a DVI port only HDMI.
- ACER P235H monitor (Two ports, DVI and HDMI)
- ACER Aspire AX5900 desktop pc (Two ports, DVI and HDMI)
- NVIDIA Geforce 210 graphic card
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- SKY Cable Tv Digbox (HDMI port only and VGA I think)
Notes: The PC is connected to the monitor using the DVI cable The Digibox is connected to the same monitor using the HDMI cable.
