    I am trying to find the correct splitter or switch to allow two computers to be connected to the same projector, so I can easily switch from one to the other without unplugging the cables.

    Hello Gary! Welcome to TSG!!

    Sounds like you could use a KVM, but only using the video connection. I'm not sure what type of connection you are employing, VGA/DVI/HDMI, etc. Search on your favorite electronics site for KVM and the video type you need. A two port KVM will work fine.

    Not sure that is the same as a monitor.

    The subject says monitor but the post says projector. Which is it?
