    Hi, right now I have a two computer setup with a kvm switch. One computer is my xp PC, and the other is my mbp 15". My external mouse is working fine through the KVM switch hooked up to my MBP, my external keyboard is not being detected. A window will pop up saying I need to setup the new keyboard, I do that and get to a screen that says "press key right of left shift key" and I do that but nothing happens, ive waited 10 minutes. I tried directly connecting the external keyboard to the MBP and the wizard runs just fine. The keyboard is a microsoft digital media pro with a bunch of extra buttons I dont really use. Has anyone else had this kind of setup with problems like mine?


    Other info: I run a (USB to PS/2 splitter) from the MBP to the kvm Switch for the mouse and keyboard. both my mouse and keyboard are USB so I have to put a (USB to ps/2 adapter) on them too. The mouse works just fine, I dont see why the keyboard wouldnt
