Hello, I have been looking for a solution for a while now. I have two laptop computers with hdmi's going into one monitor. I am looking to use the same "Wireless" Keyboard & Mouse for both computers and the single monitor. I am having trouble finding two Hdmi in and one hdmi out that allows the use of a Bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse. Please help me find the product or an alternative solution. I have search the web intensely and so far no luck.

All help would be greatly appreciated.

Best solution

Your Bluetooth keyboard / mouse is already paired to either laptop. It cannot be paired to both of them, and for sure you won't find KVM switch which supports BT keyboard IN, USB keyboards out.

Alternative solution: Non-BT Wireless (keyboard with a dongle) keyboard/mouse, with KVM switch HDMI+USB. First hit on Amazon for the switch: http://www.amazon.com/Syba-2-Port-Compact-Switch-SY-KVM...

Wonderful! ok so I am a bit of a newb to this world. What are the use cable outs for and what are the usb inputs for on the link you sent. Also just to make sure im fully understanding, you are stating that I can plug in a usb Bt dongle into the KVM switch and use the 1 set mouse & Keyboard for both computers?

Reading from the description: Cables going out are for the two computers (one for HDMI video, another one for keyboard and mouse). Connectors are for HDMI out to monitor, and USB keybpard / mouse.

Read reviews carefully - I have seen several people mentioning that this model does not work for them.
