    Asides for using VGA (via a displayport to VGA adapter), I don't see how you can achieve what you want.

    VGA - no way :)

    Isn't there a switcher or other device that can handle two DVI connectors?

    Maybe one of those HDMI switchers in conjunction with an HDMI-DVI cable.

    Not sure if you'll run into issues w/ HDCP and whatnot though

    I think that a DVI switcher would be the best option but these aren't that cheap.

    There are some nice software solutions for dual monitors. Screen Recycler might actually work for this - where you use the PC as a secondary Mac monitor - done over the network I think. No physical switching needed.

    Air Display is a great app but I think it's more for iOS devices to Macs
