Question about HP Lp2465 24 in. Television
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?
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.
