Use DDC to switch monitor inputs

3 posts in this topic

Display Data Channel ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_Data_Channel ) can be used to switch monitor inputs on most monitors.  Discussion on AutoHotKey for automating this: https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/96884-change-monitor-input-source/ .

Essentially, I want to be able to use Synergy as a true software KVM.

It appears that this was brought up before here: 

But lacked technical detail.

 

This problem could also be solved by a config option that runs a script on hotkey press.

I've been using Synergy 1 with AutoHotKey to get this working: https://moshen.net/posts/virtual_kvm/

This would be the bomb! Especially if it worked with a linux host...
