Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2005 7:16 PM (in response to laserplus)I know a couple of people that have used "Belkin" KVMs.
I've got an IOGear that for my MacMini and PC... Haven't got it out of the box yet, but it's got Mac Mini and PC right on the wrapper.
I've heard some people have problems with KVMs when they try to use wireless mouses/keyboards, stuff like.
What brand did you try?

Thanks for your reply. I bought a Belkin 2-Port KVM Switch. Someone else replied that they have the IOGear too. Maybe I'll check that out too.

I have a blue and white 17 inch monitor and cannot get either my b and W g3 or my mac mini to show up in the monitor with the Iogear,
dont know what i am doing wrong.

I realized I can just plug the keyboard, with the mouse attached to it, in and out of the mini USB port and the Apple 17" monitor built-in USB port. The only drawback is that the mini will wake up from sleep. The G4 doesn't even wake up, only upon hitting keys or clicking the mouse.
The only advantage of a switch would be if the mini doesn't wake up by switch operations...
