Question about Trendware TK-207K 2-port USB KVM Switch

1 Answer

Switching Between Vista PC and Ubuntu PC

Scrllock-scrllock works from Vista PC (Dell XPS) to Ubuntu (home-assembled) PC but not the other way around.

The Ubuntu dual-boots XP and when I boot to XP, everything works, that is, Vista-PC-to-XP-PC and XP-PC-to-Vista-PC work.

Is there a way to make scrllock-scrllock work from Ubuntu? Currently, I have to press the buttons on the TK-207K when switching from Ubuntu to Vista.

Thanks!

    I have exactly the same problem (including the vista-xp switching working correctly.) I'm using the Trendnet 209k. The laptop I'm running Ubuntu and XP on does not have a scroll lock or a num lock key on it (if that is important).

the problem is that most Wireless Keyboard and Mice combos use Composite USB, the KVM however is expecting one signal on each entry port (one for mouse, and one for Keyboard).

replace yoru wireless Combo for a standard Keyboard and Mouse to make this work.

A work around would be using a MS Wireless Mouse and a different brand of Wireless Keyboard using both Wireless receivers and plug them into different ports on the KVM

IOGear (GCS632U) 2-port KVM Switch problem. All functions well it seems after connecting for first time Mac Mini and XP Windows Dell PC except when switching to Mac I get a blank dark screen. Another side...


The IOGEAR GCS632U is designed to work with VGA computers and monitors. Using the Mini DVI to VGA adapter is not guaranteed to work with this KVM switch.

The Mini DVI to VGA adapter can only convert the port, but it does not have an ability to convert the signal from digital to analog when it's connected to the KVM switch.

What you need to have is a DVI to VGA SIGNAL converter. Unfortunately, I don't have a model number handy, so I would suggest to contact IOGEAR, because I'm sure that they already have a work around with this issue.

Thank you and good luck!

Im assuming its a new machine and when you first booted Vista failed. When you boot up, press the F10 key. This will take you to a menu to start your Acer machine from the begining. It takes a while for the first complete boot. I hope this answers your question. If not, post back and we'll diagnose your problem again. Best of luck!

I have a kvm switch vista lap and xp desktop stopped working


I've gone through alot of KVM switches. Something in the electronics just gives up. If your keyboard and mouse are the pci type (round connector) then don't switch their locations while the computers are on. Windows won't see the change and you may damage the system. If thy're USB type then switching is OK.

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

Hotkey mode


This just worked for me. Using your PC keyboard, boot up to the PC first and then power up your mac. Hit the scroll lock twice and IMMEDIATELY hit enter. You have to go fast- click-click-click with no hesitation and it works great. I still can't toggle the hot keys to set up my mac keyboard, which I prefer using, but I'm assuming it takes the "right" timing on the keys. I'll keep trying.

Good luck!

Belkin KVM 2 port switch


Sounds like its not detecting video on the 2nd port. Have you tried switching the computer on port 1 to 2 yet? If the problem moves then I would suspect that computers video card or the cable that connects it to the KVM. Let us know what happens or if you need more assistance.
