Question: can you switch between computers using the keyboard vice the buttons the KVM?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This Belkin OmniView Secure 2-Port KVM Switch only supports one method of port selection. The user can only access the desired computer by pushing the port selectors on the KVM itself.

Question: How long is the warranty on this product? Is it repairable
Answer: This OmniView Secure KVM Switch comes with the Belkin International, Inc., Limited 3-Year Product Warranty. Belkin does service these switches. Whether it is cost-effective to do so, however, is another matter.

Question: If there is a dedicated processor per port, why does it take so long for the Keyboard and Mouse to become responsive when switching between ports?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The dedicated processor is strictly for security purposes. There are multiple processors to keep each target computer isolated from the others. This is one of the features to help prevent information from being passed between secure and non-secure target computers. In fact, this added security feature, along with others, may be adding to any latency.

Also, We noticed this from the manual:
It takes approximately 1-2 seconds for the video signal to refresh after switching computers. Re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard signals also occurs. This is normal operation and ensures that proper synchronization is established between the console and the connected computers. Note: It may take longer for your mouse and keyboard to re-synchronize when the computer is recovering (or initializing) from Standby, Hibernate, or Sleep modes.

Question: how many cables required per switch
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This particular unit is a 2-port KVM that would require 2 ea. all-in-one KVM cables.

6-foot : F3X1962b06
15-foot: F3X1962b15

It appears the diagram for this switch is mislabeled, as it shows the 4-port version and not the 2-port. We will update the diagram for better clarity.

Question: Have the F1DN102U been tested on WIN 8 OS? Is there any issues with the WIN 8 OS?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We have not tested this unit with Windows 8 and Belkin has not provided any Windows 8 compatibility information. In general, it appears that Windows 8 may suffer from some of the same KVM compatibility issues that Windows 7 does. Mainly issues arise with how those newer operating systems poll for monitor EDID information and USB peripherals, and is dependent on particular user environments.

As this units specs do not explicitly mention Windows 7 or Windows 8 compatibility, we would be hesitant to say whether is would be compatible, especially considering the variability of particular user environments.

Question: What would I need to be able to utilize this product on a windows 7
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We just spoke with Belkin technical support and they stated this device should work with Windows 7. Since there is no software required to operate, this device should plug and play.

However, please note, depending on if any emulation is present, it may only function with basic, wired keyboards and mice. There may also be environmental specific factors that impact compatibility.
