Now you can switch easily and reliably between any combination of two DVI and USB 2.0 equipped computers (PC or Mac) - using only one keyboard, monitor and mouse. The 2x1 DVI KVM Switcher saves space - there's no need to work on a desk crowded with double monitors, keyboards and mouse devices. It saves time - there's no need to move from one monitor to another to access different computers. And, it saves money - there's no need to purchase additional monitors, mouse devices, keyboards etc. The Switcher allows you to choose between a Macintosh or PC keyboard/video/mouse combination.

Apple's ADC flat panel displays can be connected when used with the DVI to ADC Conversion Box.

The 2x1 DVI KVM Switcher is HDCP Pass-Through.

How it works:
The 2x1 DVI KVM Switcher switches DVI, USB 2.0 and audio between two computers located near each other. Simply plug your display and peripherals directly into the back of the Switcher. Connect the cables to the computers you want to control. Finally, push the select button in the front panel to switch to the computer you want to control.

Question: can you use a wireless mouse with G5 and a G3 usb mouse with same key board
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 KVM's 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:, 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.
