Wondering if anyone has tried this yet.. Tried to take two computers into a single USB-P DI box?

I have several and they work great...but I have no idea what you mean about trying to use two computers into a single USB-P DI box.  The USB-P provides a balanced line level stereo out from a single computer - it appears to the computer as an audio interface.  There's no way to use it with two computers.

Exactly how do you think you could do this?

2 computer audio sources on 1 stereo input, I guess.
Not a bad question.

Like 2 amplifier outputs on one speaker? Not sure what Al's got in mind here...

Oh Schnikees!    :-[  It is a bad question.

You are right, Dave ...I'm going back down the rabbit hole, now.

You're onto something (maybe).  Set both computers to output in mono, then pick one channel  (tip or sleeve) off each PC to a TS->XLRF cable (1 for each PC) into the two inputs on the USB-P. 

Set the USB-P output switch to mono... Voila! (-excuse my French)  ;D

-Dennis

TS->XLRF example:  Hosa PXF110 - 10'

????

The XLR's are outputs.

The USB is the input.

I recently was doing RF for a corporate event. They had several apple laptops as playback. Each laptop had a backup, where both were going into a USB hub. They had a special cable adapter to take into the USB DI. This way, the backup goes through the same lines.
