Xbox and PC connected to 1 monitor at the same time ?

Found 11th Jun 2009
I recently bought a VGA cable for my xbox so I can plug it into my PC screen. This was great, however in order to switch between the PC and xbox I need to swap the cables over to the monitor every time.

I have read somewhere about a switch of some sort, but they seem quite big and expensive to do a simple job. I have seen a VGA splitter but the reviews all say the picture quality is heavily reduced.

Does anybody use one that can recommend or know of a good one for a reasonable price ?

Thank You
Matt

Thanks for the quick response, this looks like just the thing I am looking for.

I have one which allows you to connect two VGA inputs to 1 monitor. It uses the keyboard to switch between them. I'll see if I can dig it out, if I find it you can have it for the cost o' the postage. M :-)
