KVM Switch


Recommended Posts

I am considering a KVM switch for use with 2 separate PC's

while using the same monitor, with wireless keyboard and

mouse. I tried this many years ago, but the wireless combo

presented a problem. It is a faithful logitech model with

PS2/USB port connections.

A quick search for DVI compatible KVM's found them to be very

expensive. Is there a reasonably priced KVM that will work with

my DVI monitor that also has audio sharing?

I could buy a new wireless keyboard/mouse if necessary?

Thanks for any suggestions.

So far the cheapest has been about $90 and that also

means a new keyboard and mouse. My current one is

over 10 years old, but it works great, but do what I

have to do. I really don't want a dual monitor setup.

Are both PC's running Windows? You could just run one of the PCs headless and use Remote Desktop to switch back and forth.

you can try synergy I've never used it but I've heard decent things about it.


nvrmd - just realized it still needs a monitor on each.

I use Avocent....not cheap but it does work and will allow you to run three monitors from two systems or the plain one to one setup. Currently using the 4 port model.

It will be one Mac Desktop and one multiboot Windows system.

Wow, it looks like it would be much cheaper to buy a second

monitor than one of those Avocent switches.
