Hello, I'm new just purchased the XIM APEX recently. This might be a dumb question but how do I switch between PC and Xbox screen if both cables are connected to one monitor? Plugging/removing that DVI cable is annoying. Thanks

Most monitors have dual source input, there's usually a button to cycle through the inputs. If your monitor only has one input you might want to look at a DVI switch (see your local Amazon website).

Although I have a 3 screen setup on my PC, my main monitor has my PC connected via the display port and my xbox via the HDMI port. I just cycle through the inputs when I've finished with gaming on xbox.

I saw something about it but wasn't sure if there was a definitive answer.  Is there anyway to get the xim link to work solely through PC.  I use the XIM Apex on PC and I know that not what its intended for but its great for now.  Macros would help a lot though just unclear if that is possible without an xbox or ps4.

Thanks for adding me. Looking to be the world's oldest gamer. 64 years old. Anybody going to beat me?

The xim community is in general much older than the average gaming community, youd be surprised how many similarly aged people are in this forum :).

Update and Troubleshooting  for Xim Link and Xim 4:

Sorry for my Englich :-).
I use the Belkin F5U258 and Windows 7.
You can buy it on ebay: https://www.ebay.de/itm/333601591615

You can use the last Firmware.

Tutorial:
You must know. Bluetooth and Data Cable dont work together.
Disable Bluetooth on your Mobil Phone.

If you use the Bluetooth config, you must disconnect the Data Cable from the PC the Xim 4 from PS4.

1. Installe the XIM4 Manager
1.1. For the first time connect the Data Cable and wait for Driver install
2. Connect the Xim 4 to PS4 and the Data Cable to the PC
3. Start Xim Link (if you have a crash on start look down in this Thread)
4. Press the Cross right of the XIM Apex
5. Add Device and choose Xim 4



If you have errrors
1. Make a Facktory reset with the Firmware Tool
2. Disconnect the Data Cable from the PC the Xim 4 from PS4
3. Connecht the Xim 4 to PS4 and the Data Cable to the PC
4. Crash on Start: go to %appdata% ---> XIM Link ----> delete OutputDeviceList.xml (optional all Config XML)

Quick question, is there a way to remap the Pause/Break button for link activation? I am too used to it for home button and so many times I press it and deactivate the link.

I know I can "add" other buttons for Activation & Deactivations but the issue is that the Pause button will still be active.

Thanks,

New to Xim Link, I'm trying to use the xim apex on my pc. I have the F4U060 Belkin Easy Transfer cable, I have the required NET framework and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017. My current xim manager and xim firmware are on 2021065. Then I run xim link as admin but I can't get the "Pause/Break" button to work? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Nevermind I didn't realize you had to bind the "Pass through state".

Not sure if the right place to ask, but can I use the link as a USB passthrough so I can keep everything plugged into my PC but just use the link as a passthrough to my ps5 for games that use native support for M&K
