Belkin blows, I have had many a problems with them it's almost not worth it. Almost, I say that because without Belkin, what else is there for me to complain about.

jorge

Maybe there is a work around solution. Maybe you should try the open source KM synergy. You could just hook up your favorite keyboard and mouse and just scroll off screen and switch just the display. (You can lock the mouse on one screen with the Scroll lock Key) I personally would get your money back on that KVM and get TWO Samsung SyncMaster 213t and use synergy between them. I unfornately have to use my two CRT's but my wireless mouse and keyboard for both of my Imac (client) and PC (server).

Congrads your mom sounds cool. Nice that she tried to say the correct thang but said KVM thingie. A+ for effort since my grandmother would try to sound like she new but really didnt on stuff I would talk about but nice they try.

Awwww, that sucks man. I would email belkin about that. I dont get keyboards with hubs in them though, so i would be fine...if i had a huge screen, money, and more than one computer, haha.

Nathan

Someone pleas!!!

Alex .. I have learned more from this one post than the past few weeks of the "new" TSS.. (ack ack ack)

You should join forces with Dan Huard.. not like you guys need to be introduced or anything .. lol..

Matt C

You could tell Kevin to dog it on-air, but looking at the latest Neilsen ratings, no one would hear what he had to say anyhow. Maybe g4 owns Belkin now too? That'd explain the suck...

Thwarten

Alex, man, how much money did you spend? Also I think you and Dan would make a great team! Go Alex!

Adam

I very much agree, Alex and Dan would be a show I would watch... even if it was show about shoes or something... it would be hilarious!

well it seems that i might know what the deal is with your USB DVI KVM. I bought the same one you did but without DVI and 4 ports instead of 2, i have a microsoft internet keyboard pro with 2 usb ports in the back, well when i plug it into the usb "keyboard" place it works (including keyboard hotswitching) but the usb hub doesnt and i wanted my usb hub to work because i plug my mouse and joystick into it, so i plug my keyboard into the otherdevice usb ports and everything worked except the hotkey switching, but i would rather have the usb than the hotkey (its close anyways i switch with my foot). I switch between my G5, Windows XP and SuSe 9 linux computers. Yes when i did plug my keyboard into the other device usb port it did beep, so i read about it and searched it and found out that you need to upgrade your firmware of your KVM switch, you need the no keyboard firmware upgrade

This firmware release disables the keyboard port when no media is detected. If the keyboard is connected to the switch the port will remain active and functional. This release has proven useful in circumstances when connecting a keyboard to the device port, or using the switch as a video switch.

That will stop the beeping because it thinks you have no keyboard attached and it thinks that because your keyboard is in the "other" port and not "keyboard" port and you put it in "other" to get your usb hub in your keyboard to work. This has worked for me and the beeping has stopped so now i can switch between my G5, PC and Linux with no problems (except no hotkey switching but oh well)


oh btw what kind of BS tech support was that, they should have told you about the firmware upgrade, sounds to me like you got someone who didnt know crap.

Hope this helps.

for firmware upgrade.

imagine that, someone in tech support who is useless. Alex probably got the free tech support guy, to get actual useful info likely requires a credit-card and $2 per minute charge (and a working knowledge of the Indian language.)

U r a loser. I put a link on my blog so my 3 friends can go and see how gay this site is. I have one word for u. SPAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

I hope Alex will read my post, I was going to email him to notify of a fix but i dont know his email and there isnt a link anywhere on the website.


(my name under my post which links to my webserver needs to be edited)(should be www.mitchr.2ya.com, not www.mitchr.gotdns.com, 2ya redirects to gotdns and gotdns cant have www. before it)
oh well my homepage is underconstruction anyways, the only page i have completed right now because of time is my PC mod page, http://mitchr.gotdns.com/projectqb.htm

two words... electric tape

I have USB/VGA Belkin. I use a Mac keyboard in the 'other' USB port and it works great. To stop the beeping, try plugging in a spare USB mouse. Actually, I have one of those Nostromo controllers (by Belkin apparently) plugged in there.. I guess that looks like a keyboard; I mean it has keys....

Henry

"Boo Belkin!" is right, stay away from them.
btw Mitch R, this is Alex's email: alexalbrecht@gmail.com
oh and Alex, I really hope you used this coupon code "12345" half off on everything :D
