This LEGEND DVI Switch Box is a Bi-Directional Switch Box.  In effect it has two modes of operation. It allows you either:

  • to switch between two inputs to one output, for example switching between the output from two PCs going to one monitor or
  • to switch one input between two outputs, for example one PC or Video Box going to two different monitors.

DVI Offers significant advantages over analogue A/V connections. DVI connections include the ability to transmit compressed digital video and audio content. The DVI Switch Box enables you to link two different digital sources to your TV.  With the DVI Switch box, you can connect your input sources such as a DVD player, set top box, satellite etc. to your TV. You can select your input source by pushing a button.

Don't put up with continual swapping of cables or be put off from full HD Video because of cable swapping. Use a DVI Switch Box to swap between sources.

How to Use

This switch box is Bi-Directional.  The direction of switching depends on which way around you connect it.

If you connect the inputs of two monitors to Input 1 and Input 2 and the output from a single video source to Output, you can switch the video source between monitors.

If you connect the outputs from two video sources to Input 1 and Input 2 and the Output to to a single video monitor  you can switch between the two video sources and a single monitor.

Effectively there are two modes:

Mode 1

  • Plug Second PC into port marked Input 2 (from PC 2)
  • Plug 1 x Monitor into port marked Output (to Monitor)

A. No, the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box is a manual DVI switch box with 2 buttons for switching between sources or outputs.

Q. I need to connect my new Notebook and a PC to an single display and be able to change between them easily?
A. Yes, the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box is designed specifically for switching between two different DVI devices.

Q. I have an Apple computer system with a Mini-DVI plug can I use it with this DVI switcher?
A. Yes but you will require a Mini-DVI to DVI adaptor to connect to enable connection most standard DVI enabled products.

Q. I would like to connect 2 computers one with 1920 x 1200 resolution and the other with 2560 x 1600 resolution. Can the Legend SBSVI2P 2-Port DVI Switch Box  2-Port DVI Switch Box switch 2560 x 1600 pixels?
A. Maybe, maybe not, the Legend SBSVI2P 2-Port DVI Switch Box is specified to handle 1080p - which is 1920 x 1080 with maximum frame rate of 60Hz. 

Doing the sums for 1920x1080 gives the bandwidth requirements.
(1920+280) * (1080+45) * 60 * 10 * 3 = 4.455 Gb/sec

Doing the sums for 1920x1200 gives the bandwidth requirements.
(1920+280) * (1200+45) * 60 * 10 * 3 = 4.93 Gb/sec
It's not much over and will probably handle that.

Resolution of 2560x1600 works out to be 8.41Gb/sec at 60 Hz
(2560+280) * (1600+45) * 60 * 10 * 3 = 8.41 Gb/sec

This is substantially over what is specified. It might work depending on the device driving the video, but it might not. Better quality cables might fix it, but basically 1080i / 1080p is a bandwidth constraint, so the box may be attenuating signals or cause bits to run into each at the higher rate. So you might not see a picture or get pixilation, or blotches.

Q. Does the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box handle HDCP?
A. Yes, the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box is fully compliant with HDCP.

Q. Can I use the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box to switch a ACER monitor and a HD Plasma TV?
A. Yes, the Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box will switch the video between the two devices, but you require a HDMI to DVI adapter for the TV and you need to remember that DVI does not include audio. 

Q. Is this High Definition TV capable? or is it just SD TV?
A. Yes this box supports full 1080p HD resolution.

Q. I need to connect 2 computers to a monitor.  Can I use this Legend switch box?
A. The Legend SBSVI2P DVI Switch Box has two female DVI connectors fro connection to the two computers and one female DVI connector for connection to the monitor. If you require Male DVI use a DVI Male to Female adapter.
