    Which KVM switch

    I'm looking to connect my PC and 360 to an LCD TV via VGA and was wondering if there are any particular VGA switched/KVM devices you guys recommend?

    Thanks

    Kreeeee needs a KVM with two inputs and one output.

    I just explained to him on MSN that I don't think you can use KVM VGA outputs as inputs (e.g. reverse the direction of the KVM), but somebody correct me if I'm wrong, please!

    There must be some form of VGA "switch" where you can alternate between 2 inputs to 1 output rather than messing around with cables.

    And I just realised I'm being special. That Misco one will work.
