Hey everyone,

This is my first post in a while, and I have researched all over the site and others, but to no avail.

I am trying to set up my hackintosh in one room, but have it connected to monitors in two different rooms. Both monitors (one is a TV) support D-Sub (or VGA??), but my video card (GeForce 7300 GT 256 MB) only has one D-Sub/VGA output, and one DVI output.

I do not want to have both monitors operational at the same time, just to be able to switch between rooms and still be able to use a single computer. Now, how can I do this? Can I split the D-Sub between the two? Or could I just get a DVI to D-Sub/VGA adapter and have two separate cables running?

Thanks!

P.S. I have 3Ghz single core and 2 GB RAM if that helps...

just guessing:

1. configure the monitors in same room, use 'mirror' in display settings IF BOTH MONITORS WORK by default

2. you may need to buy a device to strengthen the video signal depending on distance to 2nd room

3. you may need to buy a box to strengthen the USB signal depending on the distance between rooms (for usb keyboard and mouse)

4. I do not know if you can have multiple keyboards and mice plugged into OSX without a switching device

Good luck, post your results :)
