KVM Issue
« on: 07:55 AM - 10/24/12 »
Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I am using the IOGear HD KVM with audio (link here) to switch my G500 and QuickFire Pro between my PC and Xbox + Xim3. It will work fine for a couple switches but always produces a green question mark icon on the Xim3 after the first couple.

I've tried using different keyboards, and switching the USB inputs to different slots on the Xim3. I'm 99% sure that mouse and keyboard emulation are disabled, but I've not been able to figure out how to determine if it is for sure. Using the hotkey mode Ctrl-Ctrl, F4+Enter doesn't seem to work for me.

If anyone has any experience with this KVM and Xim3, I'd love to hear some possible solutions to my issue. Thanks in advance.

I had this problem a longtime ago, but unfortunately I can't really tell you what fixed it. Shortly after it started happening I quit using the XIM for several months. I hooked it back up recently for Halo 4 and it hasn't happened again. If I had to guess, I'd say either a firmware issue (update?), or a mouse config issue (make sure no keyboard buttons are bound to buttons on the mouse). I'm using an IO Gear VGA KVM.

On a side note, how is the HDMI KVM when it works? I know emulation introduces input lag. Does disabling it remove the lag?

Yes quite a few reporting issues with IOGEAR KVMs now. Somebody will probably be along shortly to dispute this and tell you it 100% works and recommend it ;D
