HDMI <-> DVI switch

Greetings
I have a computer connected to my monitor with a DVI cable and my PS3 with a HDMI cable to my monitor. I was wondering if someone could make a batch file to change that in one click ty.

the input switching of monitors is not controlled by windows. also if it were to work you couldn't switch back via the ps3.

your computer doesnt see the other ports on the monitor nor does it see a ps3 connected.
clicking the source button isnt that hard is it!?!?

I know it isn't that hard but I have a Razer Mouse with keybinds so I'm pretty sure I would be able to switch easily even when I'm looking at my PS3
I was just wondering if it was possible.

the input switch isnt controlled by your computer so it would be impossible to create such a program. the only signal windows sends to your screen is the display signal. everything else is governed by your monitors own software.
