Need a specific KVM Switch

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need a KVM switch to switch HDMI / USB / Audio(2x 3.5mm jacks).

I haven't been able to find anything like that.

I could make due with one that just switches the USB and Dual Audio jacks as I do have a regular HDMI switch. I guess I could deal with having to use two switches.

This will be just to switch between two different PC's.

Thanks!

Living in the UK I only really know of Newegg so sorry if you don't shop there... but I'm sure you can find this at other retailers smile.gif

P.S. there was also this cool looking KVM but for 4 computers, and with a hefty price tag!

That might work if I could use the mic(pink) connector as my rear audio. I have a 4.1 speaker system and both PC's are hooked up to it via 2x 3.5mm audio jacks. On the motherboard's rear I/O panel I use the green for front and the black for rear.

I guess I don't see a reason why the mic jack on that switch can't be used for audio output instead. If it can't, please let me know.

Thanks!

Ohhh by x2 3.5mm jacks I thought you meant both a Line out and microphone. TBH I doubt there are any KVM's which have two line out or green ports but I could be wrong.

Now that I think about it, you should definitely be able to use the mic jack for your rear audio channels. The jack is wired the same way and has the same type of plug as the line out jack (TRS: Tip, ring, sleeve). If you think about it, it's only really serving as an extension lead/splitter.

I can't think of a reason it wouldn't work... I say go for it thumb.gif

Thanks a lot for the link. I looked but I really didn't find anything myself. Then again, I wasn't looking in that price range. I need one badly though so I think I will shell out the $95.

No problem smile.gif

Yeah, when I was initially looking for a KVM I was shocked at how high the prices are and so I tried my luck with a £30 Belkin one: The USB hub on it worked fine but the VGA sharing didn't work at all. Once you switch the kvm to the other computer the screen is no longer recognised on either computer until after a reboot. No amount of troubleshooting fixed it and I ended up buying a more expensive one that works perfectly.
