DVI Switch and lag


#1

Hi,

I asked a similar question in the Sub 1 frame Monitor thread but I think it might be better making a separate thread.

I’m interested in getting the Dell U2312HM monitor for PS3 gaming and computer use (CAD drawings, etc). Problem is, the Dell only has one DVI connector and no HDMI and I don’t want to get up and reach behind my computer each time I want to switch. If I used a DVI splitter, will it cause any additional lag for the PS3? What about a DVI switch like this one: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10110&cs_id=1011004&p_id=4069&seq=1&format=4#feedback

Thanks for any help on this.

you should not have any problems with lag.
try this http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-High-Performance-Switcher-Switch/dp/B0015YWKYY

you may need to buy a power supply but I think it can pull power from the PS3 if the PS3 is on.
you will need to two HDMI to DVI cables and one HDMI cable.
