Right, so i have my PC and Monitor next to my TV. I some times switch to playing games from My PC onto the TV these tend to be games like Forza, Prey, Middleearth. You know games where you can kinda relax, shooters, racers and such while i play other games like FF14, Warhammer Total War and such on my PC. Now the background is done. The questions:
1) I currently have to manually unplug the HDMI and plug it into a HDMI splitter when i want to switch from Monitor to TV gaming and i was wondering - is there any other way this can be done? The way i have it at the moment. The HDMI from the PC goes into a splitter. That then goes into the PC Monitor, i take out the PC Monitor one and put in the TV HDMI cable, press the button on it twice so that the picture appears on the TV. Its a cheap, cheap solution and was wondering if theres a better more elegant solution that i could do?
2) I currently use a cheapo pair of speakers for my PC and when i change from Monitor to TV gaming, i again have to jump through a few too many hoops. Going into the settings once everything is changed over and changing from speaker audio to TV audio which again is really not elegant or fast or anything, what are so good but also reasonable price speaker sets that you guys could recomend for not surround sound but good sound, as the speakers would have to be able to fit on my deck. Which is a L shaped desk with the TV on the long part, the PC monitor in the middle and the PC on the small diagonal part.
