I have two computers (one mac mini and one macbook pro) that I am trying to have share one 24in Cinema display. I have a Monoprice dvi switcher that I am attempting to use to be able to switch between the two computers to display on the one monitor. The macbook pro runs dvi right to the switcher, the mini runs a mini-displayport to dvi to the switcher, and the output to the display is a dvi to mini-displayport cord. I have not had success with output from either of the computers to the screen and know it is not the switcher since I have already received and tried a replacement. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
