Smart KVM

  The BB 15:07 28 Aug 2009

Are there any cheap KVM's about that one of the PC's can drive?
Need VGA+PS/2+PS/2 and want to toggle manually via a button on a wire so my desktop is clear and one of the two PC's (an XP machine) to be able to also control the KVM so I can scan a barcode and it will grab the peripherals and when finished go back to my other PC.
Belkin have a VGA+PS/2+PS/2 with a remote button and toggle via [scroll lock][scroll lock] (I think) but want it done automatically.
Any products out there?
Any code whereby the XP machine can 'stuff' key codes down the wire to make it look like I'm pressing the [Scroll lock]?

Never heard of anything like it, but you could contact couple of the best KVM companies out there, i.e. Aten & Gefen, & enquire if they do such a device:
