Dell Ultrasharp 2312HM 23" IPS monitor with multiple inputs

Hello all,

I've recently purchased a Dell U2312HM monitor and when unboxing it noticed in the instructions a warmning that a DVI and VGA cable should not be connected at the same time. I'm looking to use my new monitor with a VGA KVM connected to my desktop and server, it's working fine in this configuration at the moment, but I'd also like to connect my XBOX using the DisplayPort input. It's doesn't mention not doing this; just to avoid connecting DVI and VGA at the same time.

I just wanted to check why this is before I go ahead and connect an additional input? Does anybody know the rationale behind this warning?

 

Regards

David

Davetvs1,

That is saying do not connect both of them to the same video card. It is fine using all of the monitor ports on different systems video cards.
