    I was thinking about using two LCDs of different sizes with my Mac Mini (mirrored, of course), would something like this work:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...f=pd_bbs_1/102-7168466-1502515?_encoding=UTF8

    Is there a product that's like a KVM switch for my situation?

    One of my displays has a DVI in, is there a splitter/switch that could utilize this?

    Is there a better way to go about this than the way I'm thinking of?

    Thanks,

    A fair question.

    The "main" display is a 26" Dell LCD TV. After I switched out my PB G4 12" Rev. A with my Intel Mac Mini Solo, I found that I missed having a screen to check fantasy sports, surf the web, etc...

    Might this work with the DVI-VGA adapter that the mini came with?

    And to answer your question that adaptor will do you no good at all. It's for special Matrox based graphics cards with double density DVI connectors allowing dual-display off a single high density port for half height cards.
