SOURCE: I have a Viewsonic VS11531 27.5 inch monitor I use

In the link below, on page 9 of the PDF the maximum stated resolution of the KVM is Up to 1920x1440 @ 75Hz.

http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p75457_f1da116z_man.pdf

The monitor supports up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.

It sounds like there is an issue of synchronization between the monitor and KVM. This will force the monitor into a lower resolution to sync them. You may want to check with Belkin to see if there is a firmware update for the KVM. There may also be a driver issue with one(all) of the video cards on the system. I recommend updating the drivers on all affected machines with the monitor connected directly to the individual machines. Rather than using generic drivers, I would use the drivers downloaded from the manufacturer of video cards and from Viewsonic for the monitor.

Not running on startup


I occasionally have a similar problem with a couple of my KVM?s and I think it relates to the circuitry in the KVM that is supposed to fool the PC into thinking a mouse/keyboard is attached. Windows doesn?t see the mouse so it doesn?t load the drivers unless you force it. What works for me is to just start the PC and switch the KVM to that PCs port and leave it there till the computer finishes booting. Then its safe to switch to the other port, probably not the elegant solution you were looking for but it works every time.

KVM functionality


This happens on KVMs, some more than others. I have a couple of Avocents that work great with Dell and HP servers, a Belkin OmniView that works great with two Dells and OK with a home built. Bottom line is some switches work better than others just like some PCs seem to behave better than others. If you?re looking for suggestions I would stay away from the cheaper $50 and under switches unless you find a good, used, guaranteed one somewhere. I like the Belkin OmniView and Advocent (really expensive, meant for servers and other medium sized sites). I would stay away from LinkSys, they make good wireless equipment but haven?t heard much good about their KVM switches. The original post was a few months ago so this is really intended to help anyone in the future who is researching a similar problem and winds up here.

Problem with Belkin OmniView KVM F1DS102P


Is the LED for position 1 and 2 always on? If the switch doesn't detect power on the PS2 keyboard connector it won't let you switch to to that position. If you are using a USB mouse with an adaptor or a wireless mouse try a conventional PS2. I have a MS wireless mouse one of my switches does not like and have to resort to that sometimes. Another issue could be excessive cable length or PS2 extension cables. Let us know if you have any more questions on this topic and please don?t forget to rate the post.
