USB switch
« on: 11:02 AM - 09/19/21 »

I have a question because I use the same keyboard and mouse for my computer as for XIM, if I bought a USB switch

will I be able to switch it without any problem ?
(frequent switching cabel may damage my xim, I'd rather avoid that :)

I use that exact switcher, I also have 5V power to it using the micro USB port.

It works fine, there is a but...

If you have a wired mouse ( I have a wired G502 for native M/KB ) which doesn't always go into Onboard mode when I switch from PC to XBox Native so need to unplug the mouse form the switch and plug it back in.
