How to Get Dual Monitor Display
- Each computer needs 2 video connections using the included cable A and B.
- IN A ports are for DPA Out display, IN B ports are for DP B Out display.
- Use reliable adapters for computers for Non-DP graphic outputs like HDMI, VGA, DVI, or USB C), simple conversion cable may not work. VGA adapter needs to be powered.
- Try not to use adapters on both computer and monitor for a same video chain. For instance, if you used an adapter for connecting IN B port, and another adapter on HDMI Out B, it may cause display issue.
How to Get Keyboard, Mouse and USB Peripherals Work
- Make sure USB+audio combo cables are correctly connected. The USB must be connected to a USB 2.0 port on each computer; the other end with only mini USB must be connected to correspondent mini USB port on the KVM switch
- Some keyboard and mouse with special feature may not work well on the 2 USB ports at back panel, if so, please turn off the hotkey then these 2 USB ports will change to standard USB 2.0 port like the front USB, and use the wired remoter to switch between computers.
