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 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!

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
