    just as the title says, i want a VGA KVM switch that has audio and of course VGA!, here is what i want to be able to do by clicking a button:

    switch from:

    ibook hooked up to VGA LCD, that can play music/sound through my computer speakers

    then switch to:

    xbox 360 on the same 15" LCD (VGA) with audio through the same computer speakers...

    anyone have one of these for a decent price... I have seen VGA KVM switches for roughly 25US (remember not DVI kvm switch, they are much much much much more expensive, like 140US)

    thanks, please post offers,

    okay, this is really just a question for the general public of MR:

    will the switch in the ebay auction work with the mac, i can't see why because it doesn't need software to redirect the vga and audio does it? i have PS2-USB adapters if i ever need to plug a keyboard into it... so yea, i will buy it right away if it will work

    thanks

    well, i bought it, i can't see any reason as to why it wouldn't work, it is just splitting the VGA and the audio, like a hub and then adding the ability to switch with a button.. so lets hope it will work with my ibook/360.. if anyone is 100% sure it won't, then i will convince the guy to re-list it...

    thanks
