KVM suggestion please

  Diodorus Siculus 19:24 29 Nov 2005

I need a new KVM switch - one that will cope with an LG Flatron 1915s on an nvidia pci-express graphics card and an nvidia FX5200.

The motherboards are made by foxconn and gigabyte.

The reason I specify the above is that Belkin say that the reason it wouldn't work for me was that the monitor frequency was too high.

Any suggestions welcome, Dio.

The one you had problems with (the Belkin F1DK102P) click here) supports only upto 65Hz.

This one, the
Belkin F1DB102P, supports upto 85Hz click here (I think you'll need to buy the cables separately though).

So, in theory, you should be OK if you go for one that supports the frequency at which you run your monitor.

If you require one for speakers too, you'll need one with audio support. G

Crossbow7 - thanks for that; I'll take a look at that and see what google says about it.

When I get this sorted out, I will let you know the outcome.

Broadbandbuyer.co.uk | Belkin F1DB102P OmniView E Series 2 Port KVM Switch PS/2 Platform Specification
"Monitor Supported:VGA and SVGA MultiSync®, LCD (with use of adapter cable)"

What is the adapter cable required?

Good question. I wonder if that means a DVI to VGA adapter/adapter cable?

The same model at the Belkin site click here, & the page that mentions "(with use of adapter cable)" click here, but no other explanation.

I found one on eBay click here. Perhaps you can email the seller to enquire.

The broadbandbuyer one requires separate cables (available lower down, in two lengths), though the one at eBuyer has them included click here & scroll down to read the reviewers comments. This page also confirms they're included click here, under 'Miscellaneous'. G

Thanks again, Crossbow7.

I'll give Belkin a call and see what they say - the only problem is that it is a long wait for a response from them.

"Belkin say that the reason it wouldn't work for me was that the monitor frequency was too high."

That cannot mean the refresh rate, as the refresh rate of LCD monitors should be set to 60Hz.

If you are running our monitor at more than 65Hz refresh rate, I suggest you turn it down to 60Hz - which is all it requires - and you might even find the original unit works for you.

I don't think it was the refresh rate that was being referred to - that is set at 60hz and had been all along.

The original switch is back at PCW now.

Still on the look out; had a busy weekend so didn't get to visit anywhere. Maybe during the week.

Try Komplett- I got my one from there earlier this year - no probs at all and I have allsorts plugged in the other end as 'patients'
PS2 version though. Although I cant see that USB would make a difference but you can never tell- specs seem to be changed weekly

A ggod range here. Several of them specify they will support resolutions up to 1920x1440
