Graphire tablet: will it work on a KVM switch?

Postby slackergirl » Wed Jun 04, 2008 9:02 pm

The subject says it all. Am building a new computer, but still plan on using my old comp for stuff. Have a WACOM graphire4 (which I LOVE!) and want to use it on both. Plus, don't have room for 2 mices. Will a standard USB KVM switch retain full functionality?
I'm gonna try it in any case, but wondering if anyone else has.

Just so y'all's know, it seems to work fine (so far).

interesting, which kvm switch did you get?
also does the kvm switch have a limit to output resolution?

It's a Tripp-Lite 2-port compact USB Switch with Audio. No resolution limits listed in the manual, and I've not noticed any issues on either comp. I have the screen resolutions set to 1280x960 pixels, and quite honestly don't work with anything that would require super high resolution, so I might not ever find out! Photoshop seems to be working swell too. Pretty happy with the switch overall.

OH WOW THIS IS A NICE KVM SWITCH

This KVM switch uses DVI technology for digital video signal transmission to reduce undesirable distortion from conventional analog/digital conversion. Both DVI digital video ( up to 1920x1200 ) and DVI analog video ( up to 2048x1536 ) are supported.

I am gna get one now ><

You know more about my switch than I do! I didn't realize it was so special. Hope you enjoy yours!
