xbox and pc connection with xim3
« on: 08:17 AM - 04/07/15 »
I would like to connect the Xim3 to both 'Xbox One' and 'PC' without having to switch cables... Can someone explain what hardware/setup I need to accomplish this? Thank you kindly.

Xim3 is not compatible with the xbox one, do you mean xim4? or do you mean xbox 360?  Besides that, you might want to look into a USB switch.

Similar to this: USB switch Link

(not necessarily this exact one, but do some research)  i don't use one myself

CronusMAX allows XIM3 to work on xbox one  :)

Thanks for the link! though if a KVM works, I'd get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817399032&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-KVM+Switches-_-N82E16817399032&gclid=CO6a3rGs5MQCFQmTaQodRkoAcQ&gclsrc=aw.ds as it's cheaper!!!

I wasn't sure if the xim3 could connect to the PC and xbox without additional hardware. I also wasn't sure if something like a KVM will work with the XIM3.... Can someone confirm if it does?

i've heard a few others on the forums using KVM's - so i'm positive it works.  bleh xim3 and cronusMax - too much work

Yeah, cronus max is kind of a PITA, but, I got that and the xim3 from my dad for $60... so.. I'm fine with it I guess.

Thanks so much for the information!!! I found a thread where members discussed different KVM etc etc!
I will be getting this:
