    Apple LED Cinema Display to DVI switch box, is it possible? I have other computers on my desk and want to try and combine them into one switch box. But the other computer are DVI. Is there a switch box that will accept the mac mini plug and then switch convert to DVI?

    Or a way to do it?

    If you are talking about the currently available 27" non-thunderbolt display, then it should be possible, but probably not cheap. You will need a switch box that supports dual DVI connection, as well as all of the necessary converters. Single DVI might work, but I don't think you will get the full resolution.

    I'm using a Kanex MiniDisplayPort switching box, which works perfectly with the 27" LED display. Then all you'd need is a DVI to DisplayPort adapter on the PC end, or a GPU with DisplayPort (most modern ones have it).
