So, I bought the Linxcel 4-Port SVGA VGA ELECTRONIC Monitor Switch from monoprice. It seems to work just fine with my Xbox but I'm having another issue with it. I actually needed it for a few things, one of which to plug in my Wii and or PS2. Before I decided to go with the VGA cableing for the Xbox360 I was feeding everthing into a reciever via componant and then out to my Optoma EP719 projector. Unfortunatly this projector does not have a componant port so I purchased a VGA to Component Adapter from Optoma and everything worked fine.
When the Wii is plugged in through the switcher (using the VGA to Component adapter) it does not seem to work right. I figured out last night that when a big portion of the screen is white, it goes all wiggy, the image shakes. When there is no white it seems to be fine. Why is this happening? I thought a $20 price tag on a switcher was to good to be true. Anyway what I want to now is if I were to purchase a higher end switcher would it solve this problem, or am I just out of luck using a VGA to component adapter with a switcher?
By the way the specs on the Linxcel switch are as follows.
# Switches one SVGA monitor between 4 computers.
# Saves desk space.
# Standard HD15 15-pin female connectors for VGA/SVGA video/monitor.
# Heavy duty Push-Button switch.
# Anti-skid rubber feet.
# Support Windows and MAC with Analog RGB output function and Multi-Scan dsiplay.
# Supports upto 2048 x 1536 / 72Hz
# Dimension: 120mm x 45mm x 70mm
