Hotkey Not working?

Hi, I have a KVM/4PLUS, and I've read somewhere that it has a hotkey built into it so that you don't have to push the switches on the front to switch between PC's. Is this true? And if so, What are they???

Thanks! : )

Re: Hotkey Not working?

I've been scratching my head, trying to remember the sequence for the past couple of years. Today I finally worked it out:

1. Press and release Ctrl-Alt-Shift simultaneously.

2. Press and release the digit corresponding to the machine you want (1--4).

3. Press and release the Enter key.

My ECS17 KVM tray will not respond to hotkey commands.

The LCD is just that an LCD, you would need a Switch behind it in order to get into the Hotkeys.

Cannot invoke hotkey function to switch computers .Directions say use num loc key plus minus key and release num loc but this doesnt work.

Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, a much better hotkey for this switch is to tap scroll-lock twice. This automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

Make sure the keyboard/mouse receiver is connected to the keyboard port on the KVM -- there is an embossed icon near each port -- mouse and keyboard.
