Hi all
I'm looking for a switch box but i cant find one. I have 2 PC's but just one monitor I want a box that would allow me to switch between both computers as and when I want while they are both running. I don't want to network the 2 PC's I want them to remain isolated from each other. Is there a box available for this and where can I get one from ?
Thanks

Its called a KVM (I think) - keyboard, video, mouse or some such combination. It allows you to use two (or more) PCs with one keyboard, video, mouse - hence the name! :-}

If I have the incorrect terminology, someone will correct me. flecc had a thread entitled "whose been keeping secrets" re. these boxes.
