KVM Switch IOGEAR GCS22U not flawless for me
« on: 11:36 AM - 10/16/14 »
Based on readings here i purchased the IOGEAR GCS22U for my XIM4.  IT works but there are some strange things.
  • I have to click the KVM to the XIM4 side BEFORE starting up PS4 or the devices do not get recognized
  • Switching back to PC ALWAYS works but then back to XIM4 does not always work and I get a blue light on XIM4 and have to reconnect or restart the PS4

Anyone know what I may be doing wrong or had same experience?

Might be ps4 related. I have that switch and it works flawless on the 360.

Im using this for the XB1 and it works. There's some issues sometimes that it doesnt get recognize, so all i do is switch it back to pc and then switch it back again to xb1. Been using this for a few years with the 360 and now on the XB1

you re the first in month to come up with that, people with similar issues all could be tracked down to faulty KVM units
if you can return it for a new one, it should work then :)

Did replacing the KVM fix this problem mate?
