I'm looking for some kind of extension for VGA but I don't know what to search for.
Heres the scenario, on my desk I have a MBP and an Xbox 360 hooked up to a 17" LCD monitor (I plan to purchase a decent sized one once I actually have some money). What I would like to do is have a splitter plugged into the monitor, so that I can plug in both the Xbox and the Mac and toggle between them. It should be possible because I have a similar setup on my TV downstairs, just with SCART cables instead, I have 5 going into one socket. So if anyone knows of something I could use (which is relatively inexpensive, or I might as well wait until I get a new TV) it would make my life that much easier lol.
Thanks in advance
