switch between DVI and VGA on monitor
 
My computer is running mythbuntu 9.10 on a 24" LCD monitor using VGA. The monitor also has a DVI input where I run my Roku movie box with a HDMI to DVI cable. Is there software that I can run on my mythbuntu pc that will allow the user to pick which output would be active on the monitor? I can disconnect the Roku power to get back to my pc but I need the pc to switch over the monitor to the Roku.

There really isn't a button on the monitor to switch between inputs? That is pretty hard to believe. Have you checked the monitor's manual?

I didn't see a button. It's an Acer P244W.

actually, there was a "button"...it the menu of the monitor you can switch DVI to VGA. More complicated then what I was expecting.
