I have a new pc that only has DVI outs on the video card. I use a Belkin KVM and my old PC, a laptop, has VGA out and my monitor has a VGA in. Using the DVI to VGA adapter that came with my Geforce GTS250 video card, I get no video through the KVM from my new PC, but when I hook it up directly to the monitor(bypass the switch), it works. I'm assuming I need a new KVM? Not sure which one though as I need to connect it to a monitor with a VGA input, a PC with VGA out, and a PC with DVI out.
Thinking of no other solution, here's what I've come up with:
Hey bmanfeeb, how old is your KVM? Your right to assume that your switch is not processing the signal from your desktop properly, and you may need a newer model that properly interprets converted signals from a DVI port.
