Dear god I think my brain is going to explode. Alright, I have an old school 360 (no HDMI out). I have an HPw2207h monitor, with my PC tower plugged into the VGA input at the base of my monitor. (Link to the monitor on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/HP-W2207-22-inch-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B000OK6T9W/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1305509836&sr=8-3 )
Due to spacing issues around my desk and where I do all my stuff, my TV sits somewhat far away, and thus when playing my Xbox, certain things are a bit hard to see. I read that's it's possible to plug your 360 into your monitor, and that's what started the headache. What I want to do, is have both my PC and my Xbox hooked up to my one monitor. I'll need to be able to switch back and forth, or have the 360 take priority when it's one .. either way. But due to my setup, unplugging the cables to my monitor every time is not an option.
I'd originally thought I'd just go HDMI to HDMI, but after taking a harder look at my 360, and finding it doesn't have one .. I really don't know what to do from here. I thought I'd look for some sort of a splitter with a switch, but everything I'm finding is just confusing me more.
I'm not 100% sure if I'm looking at needing a 2 to 1 male to female, or the other way around. I thought at first that I needed two females to 1 male .. but that's not a switch, that's just some cords and it's talking about running two monitors off one computer. So, it seems that since I'm doing the opposite, I need something that'll take two inputs, and give me one output I can switch back and forth between, like this:
