4-Port USB 3.0 4K DisplayPort + HDMI MST KVMP Switch w/ RS232 (Cables included)
Incorporating the latest Multi-Stream Transport (MST) technology, Aten CS1924M 4-Port USB 3.0 4K DisplayPort MST KVMP Switch is the world's first DisplayPort KVM switch with a built-in MST hub. The CS1924M enables users to adopt two console displays from a single DisplayPort 1.2 video source, providing an extended desktop mode and splitter mode at resolutions up to 4K for multitasking across two displays while reducing bulky cable connections.
To meet the ever-increasing demand for high-speed peripheral data transmissions, the CS1924M integrates a USB 3.1 Gen 1 hub to deliver unprecedented data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps - allowing you to maximize multitasking operations.
The unique independent switching feature allows the KVM switch's focus to be on one computer while its USB peripheral focus is on another computer. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate USB hub or stand-alone peripheral sharer - such as a print server or splitter. Additionally, the switch allows you to share the audio from each of the connected computers and even allows HD audio transmitted through a DisplayPort source.
With a rich feature set, the CS1924M is designed to exceed the requirements such as excellent video quality and ultra-fast data transmission speed for gaming, graphic design, animation, and video-editing applications.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
Yes, MST chaining would allow you connect up to 5 displays to the CS1924M KVM switch.
See below for optimal resolution for multiple MST monitors:
|Display Resolution with Standard 60 Frames per Second Refresh Rate||Maximum Number of Monitors Based on DisplayPort 1.2 Bandwidth|
|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA)||5|
|1920 x 1080 (1080p), or 1920 x 1200||4|
|2560 x 1600 (WQXGA)||2|
|3840 x 2160 (4K UHD), or 4096 x 2160 (4K DCI)||1|
Please note, MST requires monitors capable of DisplayPort 1.2 daisychaining, or use of a DisplayPort MST Hub. The PC source must be DisplayPort 1.2 compliant. A DisplayPort v1.1a display can be the last display in a DisplayPort v1.2 chain.
Question: My question is, could I setup a macro on say a mouse button or a gamepad button for the default hotkey command? I went over the manual and saw that the default hotkey for switching between ports is Scroll lock twice, followed by the port number and Enter key.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
We confirmed with ATEN Tech Support that It would not possible to do that. If using 'Scroll Lock' key conflicts with other programs running on the computer, the 'Ctrl' key can be used instead.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
