- Two inputs into 1 monitor - is it possible?

Does anyone know how to safely run the output from 2 PCs (or games console)
into one TFT monitor.
I have one with VGA and DVI inputs. I realise you can unplug one cable or
make sure one PC is off but what would happen if both PCs were feeding into
I can find plenty of splitters to feed one output to multiple monitors but
not the reverse. I guess what I want is just a simple failsafe
manual/auto switching arrangement.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Sure. When the computer (assuming you are only using one at a time) that is
turned on, you will see that specific data. IE. the one with the VGA output
will show when it is on and vice-versa. Some monitors require you to switch
from VGA to DVI and some do it automatically. I have a Hitachi and it will
just automatically switch from one to the other.
