Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
DisplayPort is a data cable instead of a video cable like DVI or HDMI - DisplayPort KVM Switches (including the CS1942 and CS782DP) do not include video EDID emulation (or for Aten: "Video DataSync"). It is typical to notice a slight delay in switching a DisplayPort based KVM.
If you are looking for a KVM with EDID emulation, I would recommend going with a HDMI based KVM (i.e. Aten CS1792 ) or a DVI based KVM (i.e. Aten CS1762A).
If you would like a recommendation based on your application, please feel free to contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative directly.
Question: How do you switch between the PCs. I'm looking for a solution where I can at minimum use the Scroll Lock key on my keyboard to switch, since that button is very rarely used
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
the Aten CS782DP provides three convenient switching methods Ð hotkey switching (this is the method with Scroll Lock + key combinations), mouse via an On-Screen-Display menu, or by using a remote port selector (remote).
