Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For some time now, I've been using a TV as a second monitor. It's doubling as my console screen, however, which raises a couple of questions regarding convenience.
Right now, I have the TV and the monitor on my desk; my consoles on a book-shelf to my right. I can easily reach over and toggle them on or off, but actually displaying them raises some dummy-level questions:
1) Can a signal be sent from the computer to toggle the input selection of the tv?
As of right now, it's not exactly hard to switch inputs: reach to my right, hit 'input', 'down' 3 times, 'ok' and I'm done. Under 10 seconds, if I'm moving slowly; and everything is in the proper place.
I'd like to know if changing the inputs from the computer is practically impossible. I assume it to be.
2) Is there a program that will switch between dual and single monitor modes?
This sort of stems from the first - while the tv is in use for console gaming, it isn't displaying my computer screen. I am wondering if there's a tool that will quickly disable the second monitor, causing everything to condense back to the primary.
