Video Switching

Some advice if you can help guys.
have been running 2 computers onto one keyboard/mouse/monitor via a KVM switch unit without any problems.
One of my computers has died & I have a replacement. The only problem being it is infrared keyboard & mouse only & is without PS2 ports for keyboard/mouse.
I can live with that by stashing the wireless mouse/keyboard out of the road & pulling them out when required BUT, I cannot get the video output to switch via the KVM switch. Without the keyboard/mouse connected to the KVM switch it won't recognise the unit. I am back to removing the lead from the monitor between computers.
Does anyone know a work round to this problem or of a switching unit that will switch only two vido inputs into one?

Thanks
