    If I buy a Belkin flip kvm swtich, that has the two vga connectors on it and I use a VGA to DVI adapter on one of them ( because my MBP is DVI) will I being loosing any quality to my current set up? Which is a MBP to a 22inch Dell widescreen. ( the other end is going to a PC desktop, so it only has VGA)

    Basically, will the DVI adapter keep the same quality as if it was just a plain DVI connection. Or by using a adapter is it using VGA quality?

    By using a DVI to VGA adapter you will be using an analog signal and will be loosing quality.

    It is VGA to DVI. Not DVI to VGA.

    If your statement is true, I will not be loosing quality then..
