Hello ,
I bought a vga splitter so that i could hook both my lcd monitor and my lcd tv up to it.That way i wouldnt havet to keep unplugging and pluggine cables back in. The problem i am having is after hooking up splitter to the pc. I can have the lcd monitor hooked up but when i go to pllug the lcd tv into the other vga spot what happens is that the lcd monitor wont show anythign but the lcd tv does. i would think that they both should be able to work.. If anyone has any help on this please let me know...thanks again

Do you have anymore information on this splitter? A website or something?
So when you connect your tv and monitor, you only see picture on your tv?

this cable is probably wired with both DB-15 females parallel to the DB-15 male.

Your graphics card presumably expects one monitor and only one monitor to be connected to each of it's outputs (which is why some graphics cards multiple outputs), wiring two monitors onto one output is probably beyond the scope of design of the RGB V+H sync signal. But, this might work with two old CRTs.
