I have a 2008 Mac Pro 8-core with 10GB of ram. I'm building a new house and I'd like to be able to access this this computer from a different room. So my plan was to get a DVI-to-Cat5 converter device, run a cat5 cable between the rooms, and hook it all in the second monitor output on the Mac Pro tower, and voila, you have a monitor in the second room: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/dvi-to-cat5-converter.html For the 2nd monitor in a different room, I would have to get a monitor that had a built-in USB connection, and hook in the mouse/computer through that USB. This was the concept. But then I realized, the Mac Pro 2nd monitor feature is not designed to have the monitor in a different room, because all of the files and the toolbar are on the primary monitor, making a second monitor useless if it is in a different room. You wouldn't be able to access the toolbar and files from the 2nd monitor (right?). So this is the challenge: any creative ideas out there on how to make this work? Perhaps if there was some type of switch allowing you to manually switch between monitors. But if it all gets too expensive, then you just buy a secondary computer, and share files on the network. It would be cool to use the same computer in a different room, but maybe its just a dream of mine. Thanks!
