I currently am using a monitor and a projector with my HTPC but never at the same time. I mostly use my monitor for maintenance purposes. I do not have a switcher nor could I afford a quality one. Right now I just simply swap the connection in the back of the pc. I'm afraid of wear & tear, plus it's a pain.


If I use a splitter cable, will there be any degradation of the PQ even if I only have one on at a time?


Thanks,

Neuner

Yes there will be a signal degradation unless you go with a very expensive switchbox. I tried it with various boxes and there was no solution that gave me the same quality signal as the cable direct to my setup.


I have a pc driving a projector. I could not tell as easily though when I had my RPTV connected because it was a smaller picture.

I know what you mean about the cost but you can find some really good deals out there. Check ebay for an Extron VGA distribution amp. 1 in 2 out is all you need and I have seen them go as cheap as $45. I have had one for a while now and I don't know what I would do without it.


Good luck!
