    I have a prompter system that I am trying to control both the primary and secondary MBP's with a single Contour Shuttle Pro. The key assignments amount to hitting a number key to start 4-7 and space bar to stop.
    I looked at KVM splitters but it seems like they switch signals between the two computers rather than run simultaneously.
    Someone mentioned that I could network them via Cat5 5 but I don't see how that would work.
    Any ideas??

    What are you trying to accomplish? There is likely a better way than attempting to duplicate input.

    USB split

    Thanks for replying. The best way to visualize
    Prompter A
    Prompter B
    A/B switch
    Single USB controller.

    I am trying to scroll both machines with single USB controller so if something happens to Prompter A I can switch to prompter B and it will be at (or close ) to the same spot.

    I use a contour shuttle, but the key assignment is just space bar for start/stop and numbers for speed.

    Hey Danno66,

    Did you ever figure this out? I'm trying to do the same thing! Thanks!
