Xbox 360 trouble

Help. I just bought a Tk-205K KVM switch and am having some trouble. I am using it to connect my computer to port 1 and my XBox 360 to port 2 via VGA cables. I am able to use both computer and Xbox as long as the Xbox is on. If it's off I can not use either. I do not wish to leave my Xbox on all of the time. Is port two what powers the switch? Should it work even if nothing is plugged into port 2. Also when I did have the xbox on and was using the device, my monitor turned a green color. Everything was green. As soon as I unplugged the device it was fine so I know it was not the settings on the monitor. Has this happened before to anyone else?

My problem is fairly similar to the first. When both xbox and computer are turned on the KVM switch works fine, it lets me switch back and fourth between the x-box and computer with no problems at all. IF i turn off my computer, the xbox will continue to run through the KVM switch without need of the pc. BUT when i turn off the x-box with the pc on, the kvm switch will not display anything. at all.. in order to use my PC with my x-box turned off, I have to hook the monitor directly to the pc. If there's a solution to this nonsence I'd like to know it.

What is the best way to connect 2 computers to this monitor


If you have two separate computers for different purposes, such as personal and work use, you may find it convenient and necessary to connect both to a single monitor. Many monitors have dual inputs, making such a connection simple. However, you might need a keyboard, video and monitor switch to accomplish this task if the monitor lacks a second input. Dual Inputs
Step 1 Examine the back of your monitor for the presence of dual video inputs, such as a single VGA and DVI or HDMI output.
Step 2 Connect the VGA cable to one computer. Plug the other end of the cable to the matching input on the monitor. Rotate the retaining screws until tight at both ends of the cable.
Step 3 Plug the DVI or HDMI cable into the back of the second computer. Insert the other end into the monitor's digital video input. Screw down the retaining screws if you're using DVI.
Using a KVM Switch
Step 1 Ensure both computers are turned off. Place the KVM switch on your desk where it is within convenient reach.
Step 2 Locate the video output port on the back of the KVM switch. Plug a VGA cable into this port. Plug the other end of the VGA cable into the monitor.
Step 3 Plug the VGA monitor outputs from each computer into the inputs on the back of the KVM switch. Tighten the retaining screws down for each connected VGA cable on the computers and the KVM switch.
Step 4 Plug the keyboard and mouse cables into their respective outputs on the KVM switch. Plug each set of keyboard and mouse cables from their ports on each computer into the matching inputs on the KVM switch. Plug each cable in sequentially to avoid mixing them up between machines.
Step 5 Double-check that the mouse, keyboard and monitor cables leading from each computer all correspond to the right machine. Plug the KVM switch's power cord into a nearby AC outlet or power strip.
Step 6 Turn the computers and monitor on to verify the connections are correct.

Required Items

  • VGA cable
  • DVI or HDMI cable
  • KVM switch
  • Power strip (optional)

Hi, I want to connect a new xbox 360 to my Samsung T200 lcd monitor. there is a VGI socket and a DVI socket in the back of the monitor. The VGA socket is already connected to my PC and I would like to...


You can only use one device at a time with the monitor.
Also the monitor doesn't have speakers, so you will not get any sound.

There is another device which you can use to connect both your computer and your xbox to the same monitor. It is called a KVM switch. You can buy it from a local store or online.

I have a Trendnet TK-209 KVM switch. My keyboard and mouse (MS wireless) that worked well for a year stopped working through the switch. they work well if connected directly to each computer.


I can confirm the same problem happened with me just now. I have TrendNet USB/KVM TK-207 and was flawlessly working with Logitech K260 Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Combo, but today on both computers all I can see is the error:

.
USB Device not recognized - The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it.

I unplugged the usb wireless adapter and connected it directly to the PC - it worked like a charm again. I have tried to connect the wireless adapter to the mouse port hoping that the keyboard USB port is causing problems, but all I got was the same error. I have tried to conect a normal USB keyboard, but again the same error I get for both - the mouse and keyboard, so it is more than obvious now that the USB ports of my KVN Switch are malfunctioning. I will try to leave it for a while if it got hot somehow as it was connected for more than 6 months working perfectly fine, but if not, I am heading to the store for support/replacement.

Dual Screens with a VGA connection


The easiest way would be to purchase a video card that has 2 vga ports on it, allowing dual monitor support. Here is an example.

IOGear (GCS632U) 2-port KVM Switch problem. All functions well it seems after connecting for first time Mac Mini and XP Windows Dell PC except when switching to Mac I get a blank dark screen. Another side...


The IOGEAR GCS632U is designed to work with VGA computers and monitors. Using the Mini DVI to VGA adapter is not guaranteed to work with this KVM switch.

The Mini DVI to VGA adapter can only convert the port, but it does not have an ability to convert the signal from digital to analog when it's connected to the KVM switch.

What you need to have is a DVI to VGA SIGNAL converter. Unfortunately, I don't have a model number handy, so I would suggest to contact IOGEAR, because I'm sure that they already have a work around with this issue.

Thank you and good luck!

Good trouble shooting. So it most likely is the monitor. Can you talk to your vendor about a replacement? There could be a voltage problem feeding the monitor. Is it set for the correct voltage? Can you check the voltage feeding the monitor? Other than that, there is a circuit problem in the monitor.
