    Hello All,

    I was wondering if one of you has the answer this.....

    For work I am now working remotely from home. I have a ThinkPad W520 with Dock and two 19" ViewSonic monitors both with DVI cables. Since space in my place is an issue, I want to share my sons desk wich has a Mac Mini with an HDMI to DVI cable to a 19" Monitor.

    My question is......is there a KVM switch out there that will allow for my setup plus keyboard and mouse to be used with the Mini? Then he can run dual screens on the Mini when I am not working.

    Thanks for the help with this one!

    Alex

    It is not a hardware KVM

    I don't know if this is the kind of fix you are looking for, but have you tried:

    It is really pretty easy to setup. I have it here at the house with my linux box as the server and my mini as the client. Works really well for the most part.

    Hope this helps

    That is not what he is asking for.
