Default I have a monitor that I use with TV Tuner and 360...Any way(adaptor/hub?)2 D-sub in 1

Hey guys.

I have an LCD monitor with one DVI-D and one 15pin mini D-sub connection.

My 360 uses the mini D-sub connection.

My TV tuner uses the mini D-sub connection.

Every time I want to do one or the other I have to switch the D-subs manually... and that is a pain.

Is there any (preferably cheap) method of having a hub or something so that I can leave 2 D-subs plugged in and the monitor just recognizes whichever one is on?

Thanks. Also is it available on the monoprice website?

My monitor:

Maybe I should focus on the DVI-D port? converter?

Would any of these work? (Scroll down all the way to the bottom)

For my TV Tuner male D-sub into the LCD monitor:

If I plug that into this Female/Female, and then get the DVI Analog/VGA(HD15) ... both linked below, do you think it'll work? I'm concerned about the monitor port being DVI-D (I don't know what that means. I also don't know what HD15 means.)

is this better than cables... and is this what i need?

Are there any other ones for a similar price that maybe are smaller or look a little better?
