    Hey everybody!

    I am really hoping someone here can help me. So, I have one of these for my 27 inch ACD to switch between Mac and Windows (I'm a game developer who specializes in Unreal.) http://www.atlona.com/Atlona-2x1-Mini-DisplayPort-KVM-Switch.html

    I've just bought a second one, but I've found out the KVM switch is discontinued! This is extremely frustrating. This means Windows has two monitors, but OSX does not.

    I basically need this second switch. I've looked, and crazily NO ONE else seems to sell these. There is a company that makes a $600 one for Displayport, but that's the closest I've found. Remember that ACD also needs to pass the USB signal, so the Atlona 4x1 model is out.

    So frustrating! Help me Mac Rumors, you're my only hope!

    Have you checked with eBay or if the Atlona may have any refurbs available?

    My brother-in-law swears by this instead of a physical kvm switch. He uses it at work.

    Oh, wait, wait wait. Is this not a physical KVM switch? One side of what I'm using is boot camp - so will this not work in Windows 7?
