Sharing Keyboard/Mouse with XIM4 & PC
« on: 12:35 AM - 09/06/14 »
Hi all! I know some others have asked how to share the keyboard and mouse with both XIM4 and a PC. I just wanted to get clarification on two things:

1. I haven't found a good solution on the forums yet. USB switch doesn't work (as identified here: http://xim4.com/community/index.php?topic=33302.0) and XIM Commander is just starting development now. Is there anything else I should look into?

2. The setup in the link above is slightly different than what I had in mind. Would something like this work?



In this configuration, the USB Switch shares the Keyboard/Mouse with the XIM4 and the PC, instead of the Console and the PC. In my example, the XIM4 uses the Mouse port to connect to the USB Switch (which it would perceive as a simple USB hub), but it could also connect to the Keyboard port.

Seem possible?
Setup: PS4 - XIM4 - SteelSeries Rival - Razer DeathStalker
Accessories: SteelSeries Siberia V2 - SteelSeries QCK+ - Asus VG248qe 144hz monitor

Does the hub have two USB ports for outgoing or one for each output. Two might work but I wouldn't think one that uses one USB out for each output wouldn't.

Thanks everyone! Based on the feedback here, I purchased this IOGear USB Switch (http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-Peripheral-Sharing-Switch-GUS402/dp/B00BD8I2OY) and it works PERFECTLY. I love it.

This allows me to share my keyboard and mouse with either my PS4 or PC - I simply hit the button on the switch and it'll toggle which device gets to use the keyboard and mouse.

Setup: PS4 - XIM4 - SteelSeries Rival - Razer DeathStalker
Accessories: SteelSeries Siberia V2 - SteelSeries QCK+ - Asus VG248qe 144hz monitor

That is definitely not the way to link. You need to upload the picture to a file sharing site and then link from that. I would edit out the file on your last message because I'm pretty sure you just told us all your real name.
