Looking for monitor for two computers: overclocked DisplayPort for one, HDMI for another.
Does anyone know if the LG 34GK950G-B will support switching between two computers: a DisplayPort set with overclocking to 120hz for a PC, while a Mac is connected via HDMI, without the screen turning black overnight for the PC as recently happened with the AW3418DW that I had to return? If the 34GK950G-B will not do this, is there another Ultra Wide that will?
Our default setup is to have our Alienware Aurora R5 hooked up to our monitor via DisplayPort and Mac Laptop hooked up to the same monitor via HDMI. This worked perfectly with our previous low-end Dell monitor though we'd never adjusted settings for that one. We were so excited to get the AW3418DW G-Synch monitor since we could then take advantage of the 120hz overclocking. This, however, was not to be. We were able to switch back and forth between HDMI and DisplayPort just fine, but, two nights in a row, whenever we left the computer alone overnight, HDMI from the Mac laptop continued to work while DisplayPort from the Aurora R5 would not and would display only a black screen until we reset the monitor back to factory settings and then overclocked to 120hz all over again. Dell engineering department told the tech support rep that the AW3418DW was not designed to switch between computers while overclocking is enabled for the PC connected via DisplayPort and they have no intention of updating firmware. I'm hoping against hope that the LG 34GK950G-B might be able to work where the AW3418DW failed.
