Kvm switch won't stay on second computer, switches back
Hello. I have had this KVM switch working for a few years now, although I did have some issues like what I'm going to describe at one point and they seemed to resolve themselves.
I just got a new pc computer and got everything set up again. When I click the kvm to go to my mac, it switches over and I can see the mac desktop. However, it only stays for about 3 seconds and then switches back again.
Also, I am randomly hearing the sound that I hear when I do switch over -- when I have not hit the kvm switch.

Try swapping the KVM cables from the 2008 computer into the Vista computer and see if the problem follows the 2008 computer. This KVM gets the drivers it needs from the OS and the IOGear web site does not show any support for 2008.
The switches are used when cascading more than a single BYTELAN KVM. It specifies the scan rate, and which KVM unit the keyboard and mouse are connected to. For a single KVM, use the default settings.
SW1 SW2 Scan Rate
ON ON 2 seconds
OFF ON 10 seconds
ON OFF 20 seconds
OFF OFF 40 seconds
SW3 NOT USED
SW4 ON For KVM unit with KB/mouse
OFF For other KVM units w/o KB/mouse,
If your power supply isn't adequate, it may cause your KB/mouse problem. It should be 9VDC with at least 500ma.
Hope this helps.
