azrael Posted July 26, 2011 Author Share Posted July 26, 2011 I assume you mean with wired USB, since the KVM I have is a USB model. The manual says that it works with Macs, and if I plug it into just the Mac, the Mac is picking up the signal. The problem might be, as you suggest, that the KVM isn't getting along with the wireless nature of my keyboard and mouse, specifically the keyboard. It's probably the wireless input devices. The KVM I have is an IOGear that's supposed to switch by either double tapping Scroll Lock or double tapping Ctrl. I'd be open to trying a Belkin; we used to use a Belkin one at work with a wired button remote that toggled between the computers. That one was for PS/2 mice and keyboards, but if they have a USB equivalent, and if I knew for certain it'd work without being connected to any monitors or any display outputs from either computer, that'd work better than using separate mice and keyboards and would be less hassle than manually disconnecting and reconnecting the receiver. I know Belkin makes KVMs with USB, but whether they support wireless devices is something I'm not sure of. I do know that they will work with/without video input from the KVM. But my experience is with the server-rack models, not the consumer/home models. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
