What Would You Recommend for a "Switch" between 2 HDMI Monitors?
Posted on 2011-03-17
My PC is an HP e9150t quad core desktop using an Intel i7 CPU (firstname.lastname@example.org GHz). I have 8 GB of RAM and am running Windows 7 Home Premium-64-Bit. It has 2 video cards; the ATI 4550 and 4650.
Each video card has 2 ports, for a total of 4 monitor ports for my computer. I'm currently using 3 regular monitors and one HDTV (in another room) as the 4th "monitor."
The HDTV is NEVER being used simultaneously with the other 3 traditional computer monitors, since those monitors are only used when working on my computer.
I want to add a 4th "computer" monitor, and am wondering if there is some kind of "switch" which will allow me to use one HDMI port on one of my graphics/video cards with EITHER my HDTV, OR my 4th computer monitor.
The only alternative would be to physically switch cables each time I want to use one or the other. Do you know if such a device exists, and if so-suggestions of what I could use/where to find it?
Thank you very much for your help.
