So I recently brought my xbox up to my desk where my PC is so I can plug my Xbox into the router with an Ethernet cord rather than trying to run online with WiFi. However, my monitor only has one HDMI, and one VGA port. I got tired of swapping the HDMI cord back and forth every time I wanted to play one after the other, so I got this
Plugged everything in, Xbox worked great, PC showed no signal. Thought that was odd so I swapped the ports in which the cables are input to see if one of those was bad. Same thing happened, Xbox worked fine, PC no signal.
I then checked to see if the cable was bad, so I swapped each cable connecting to the other and again only the Xbox worked. Regardless of which port or which cable I used to the PC, it will not show on screen while going through the switch.
If I run either cable from the PC into my monitor it works perfectly fine. I even tried just plugging the PC into the switch to make sure it wasn't the Xbox throwing something off also being plugged in. Same results. I know the problem is not mechanical at least, it must be something with the PC and the signal once it reaches the switch.
Is there any setting I need to have changed in my display in order to make this work properly? Thanks for any help
