Problem with hookk up of desk top computer monitor with Infocus projector
Posted on 2006-10-21
At work I have a desktop computer hooked up to the network. I also have an infocus projector that I would like to use. The problem is that if I hook it up correctly it works fine and I can use the desk top monitor as well. But when I turn off the projector ( when not in use) it also disconnects the monitor. It seems that the projector plug in that allows the monitor to be used disconnects when the power is off and this is not what I need.
I connected an averkey and it does the job, but the picture quality of the projected image is terrible and this isn't going to work out. Is there something else out there that I can use. Some where I read about a vga distribution amplifier, but what it looks like is the averkey and I have been down that route.
Do I want to buy a KVM and use that or do I buy one of those rotary switches and select the ports to use or do I plug and unplug cables as I go?
