Video Input Selection Problem

I have two separate macs hooked up to this monitor.  But I can't select between viewing the two desktops unless one is put to sleep.
Am I missing something?
TIA,  Joel

That is due to the fact that you can only connect 1 desktop to the HP LP2465 as most monitors.

For one the LP2465 does not have the picture in picture technology and for another the two ports you are connecting your Macs into are DVI (Digital Video Interface) connections. One is the Single DVI and the other is a Dual DVI.

It does not mean you can connect two Mac computers to the same display and both work. That is not practical because there is only one video input interaction possible with a computer and a monitor.

The DVI connections are determined by their ability to use either Analog and Digital signal transmissions through one connector.

So in order to effectively use your HP LP2465, you can only use 1 computer with the monitor because it is not designed to work with two computer graphics cards at once. Most LCDs have only one DVI or VGA connector to connect to a computer- your just happens to host two types of DVI connections is all..

That is the reason one computer is on with your display and the other is not displaying any video.

Take a look at this great explanation of the differences between Single DVI and Dual DVI connectors via this link:

Can i use a rosewill lcd monitor as a tv


That depends upon what you are using with it. Monitors do not have integrated tuners and thus cannot select channels. However, most cable providers use set-top boxes that perform the channel selection function for you. Many of these boxes have HDMI outputs that can be used with monitors that have these input capabilities. Otherwise, you need separate audio and video connectivity from the cable box to the set, either in the form of composite video plus audio cables, or a DVI cable with audio cables. Again, this is dependent upon what the cable box and monitor support.

Dell 2407 Can't get rid of "No S-video input signal" message on screen. How do I get rid of this?


Your S-Video connection is referring to a round plug for a TV input signal. Most computers will not have this connection unless you have a TV based video card. If your using a TV 'monitor' as your computer's video device, their will either be a button on the monitor or your remote to allow you to choose the input signal. If you are using a VGA or HDMI or DVI cable as the connector between the two devices, most likely, the light is referring to one of these, as its video source. You will need to match the cable & monitor source detected to get a usable picture output.

Good luck.

No signal when i used vga monitor connector to pc, no problem in dvi


Michael,
I have both ASUS and LG monitors with multiple input choices. On both, when the monitor is turned on, it remembers the last input source. Both monitors (and presumably yours, as well) have an INPUT selection in their SETUP MENU.
So, I'm suggesting you search your monitor for an INPUT selection option, then choose "VGA" rather than DVI / HDMI / AV / COMPONENT / CABLE / ANTENNA, etc.
Hope this helps.

When tryong to install monitor the computer starts but the monitor only show fujitsu siemens logo and before I can see anything else it states no signal going to sleep. Have downloaded updated driver for...


Does the monitor have two inputs? (Digital - DVI, and Analog - VGA)
If it does, check on your monitor whether the right input is selected; there can be a separate button for input selection, or the selection can be made from the monotor's On Screen Menu.

Trying to hookup old dvd/vcr to new flat screen. have cable box hooked up nad working. dvd/vcr no hdmi connections. what cable hookup do I use


You need to use composite inputs. They have three connections, yellow for video, white for left audio and red for right audio. It does not matter which input you go into. I would imagine there are about 7 separate inputs like the ones I described, just remember which one you use because you will have to set the input to that number to see the VCR/DVD later. Get a phono or RCA patch cable and connect the same colors from out on the vcr/dvd box to in on the tv. Turn everything on, set the tv to the proper input using the menu or input selection and you should be able to view video tapes or dvds. Let me know if you need more help.

Can not get bluray to get signal to TV, have it all hooked up w/ HDMI cables-worked on old bluray, new one is Panasonic.


you can but not direct, your tv must have scart in or svhs input, or a hdmi input (on component video out), or you can test with cd\dvd out section.

Note is 3 ways to send to tv. (component video),Monitor, or CD\DVD

The component video is controled by receiver selection menu (as normal output), the monitor is sample from 2nd level menu (as receiver next step) and CD|dvd is what is bypass from CD\DVD INput)

What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +


Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.

Bought Samsung 2233BW Monitor, hooked the two plugs, power and DV1 cord started computer and switched on monitor, NOTHING HAPPENED. Silly thing just unhooked Samsung and hooked back up the AOC monitor no...


You might need to go into the monitor's setup menu and select the digital input. (That's DVI, by the way, for Digital Video Input, and not DV1.) Some monitors automatically detect the input but not all of them. Obviously, this doesn't apply if the Samsung has only a DVI input. It might also be necessary to tell the video card to turn on the DVI output. You can do this with your old AOC connected and use the video setting utility supplied with the video card.

Problem with Digital Input


Hi,

You may need to switch monitor selection in your Display Properties. You need to activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your secondary (analog/digital). Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

There is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you have other concerns.

Good luck and kind regards.

Trouble getting a picture with a source selector


The input on your television monitor must be set to view the composite with the S video cable. You will not be able to view the component video unless you also have component video outputs going from the input selector to the television. After you have done that, you will also have to change your television input from "video 2" to whatever input you used for the component video hookup.
