2 Pc to one Display KVM suggestion?
« on: January 11, 2017, 07:28:19 am »
I have a powerful desktop which I use for image editing and another mini pc for my office work. I want to use the same display with both computers but I never need to use both computer at the same time. My problem is simple I just want to avoid changing cable every time.

My current setup
My monitor has DVI and VGA ports only
Mini PC has only HDMI

When using my desktop
Just using DVI cable

When using mini PC
I use HDMI cable with HDMI to DVI adaptor plugged in to my monitor. Before I used HDMI to VGA converter cable that was giving lot of trouble. This DVI to HDMI adaptor is working fine as it suppose to be.

As I mentioned above all I need is: I don't want to switch cables.

So which KVM do you recommend me? I have no intention to use both PC at the same time. I may buy a cable but then I have to switch keyboards too..
