    dual monitor switching
    ok ill explain what i have going on right now so you can understand the question very well.

    heres what i have:
    -I have a mac book pro with a docking station
    -a pc tower
    -2 matching monitors that i have been using for dual monitors for the mac

    I want to make it so i can use the monitors in 3 different ways
    -dual monitors(mac)
    -dual monitors(pc)
    -(here comes the tricky part) 1 monitor MAC 1 monitor PC


    so the first 2 can be accomplished with a Belkin switch. If you don't know what it is please Google it. (actually a nifty little piece of hardware)

    now in order to get the 3rd way I think i might have a solution. but i am afraid to try it because it might just mirror the monitors when in dual monitor mode. (should work fine for just making 1 monitor for each machine)

    I came up with a quick image to represent what i want to try:


    So If you think this will work or dont think it will. let me know if you have any ideas of how to do this easier.

    Id rather no software though. because i do NOT trust mac/pc compatability!

    If this works ill be sooo happy

    thanks for the help!
