For another option, IOGEAR states the http://www.kvm-switches-online.com/gcs632u.html
provides the EDID support needed for Windows 7 to function properly.
Question: Is there any warranty?
Answer: This Belkin Flip USB with Audio KVM Switch comes with a Belkin 3-Year Warranty.
Question: can I use a wireless keyboard with this switch, if not which switch do I need?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.
Using wireless keyboards and mice is very hit or miss when it comes to KVMs. This is related to the very different way in which wireless peripherals communicate and a KVMís internal mouse/keyboard emulation. We cannot guarantee a particular wireless setup will work with a particular KVM.
That being said, customers who attempt to use wireless keyboards and mice find Avocent switches, like this model: http://www.kvm-switches-online.com/4sv120bnd1.html
, to work best. Alternatively, we have heard of some success when using a KVM equipped with a USB hub in addition to the USB console connectors. However, this typically results in some loss of functionality in regards to hotkey switching and other keyboard supported functions.
Again, it is a hit or miss proposition and we cannot guarantee any switch will work. For best performance and compatibility, we always suggest wired keyboards and mice.
Question: Will this switch work with XP and Win 7?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, while this Flip KVM works with Windows XP, it does not fully support Windows 7.
Question: what cable do i require for a macbook?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This Simple 2-port flip KVM comes with all the required cables. As long as your MacBook has VGA and USB connections it should work as is.
Question: will there ever be win 7 support
Answer: This KVM is not OS dependent, so Windows 7 should be supported
Question: can belkin flip be usaed with windows 8.1
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Depending on the particular setup, it may work with Windows 8.1. However, Windows 7 and 8 are not listed as supported operating systems, and due to the new ways in which Windows 7 and 8.1 use EDID (Extended display identification data) and peripheral emulation, we would hesitate to recommend this KVM for those operating systems and could not guarantee compatibility.
