SmartAVI has changed the part number from DVNET-8P to DVN-8PS.

This unit is a 8X1 DVI-D, USB2.0, Audio switch Includes: [DVN-8P and (PS5VD3A)]. The DVN-8PS will allow one to view up to 8 individual computers equipped with DVI-D on a single screen. With the DVN-8PS cross-platform switch, you can easily share DVI-D Monitor, Stereo Audio, USB 2.0 Devices and any USB Keyboard and Mouse Seamlessly Between 8 Macs or PCs.

SmartAVI's DVI Switch Series is the perfect solution, allowing for either PC or Mac signals to be extended from computer to monitor (20 feet from computer to DVI Switch, and then 20 feet from DVI Switch to remote monitor/display point).

Another practical use for one of our DVI Switch would be for media recording studios, where soundproofing and space issues come into play. Using a DVI Switch eliminates the inherent 'hum' of a powered CPU and gives you the freedom of using your keyboard, mouse and monitor without having to find room for the computer itself in the same workspace.

Question: The specs mention an IR remote. Do you have this available, and if so, how much is it?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. A remote sensor is available, but there is some discrepancy as to which one is correct. We will need to confirm the part number for pricing.

Question: The specs mention controlling the unit using the RS-232 port via software. Do you have this software available, and if so, how much is it? If you don't have the software, do you have the specs for what commands are expected on this port?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. RS-232 control can be accomplished via HyperTerminal, so no additional software is required. From the manual:

Use Hyperterminal to connect to the DVN-8P, making sure to use the standard communication mode of 9600bps, 8, N, 1. To switch ports, use the standard "//M" command prompt. To select the "IN 1" port, send "//M01 [ENTER]". To select the "IN 2" port, send "//M02 [ENTER]" etc.
