Splitter 2 PCs; 4 monitors

    I have two PCS (with DVI video) which I'm looking to control via a KVM switch (1x keyboard; 1x mouse).

    I'd like to setup 4 screens (HDMI), so that whenever I switch to a PC, its video is being displayed (in duplication) on the four (4) displays.

    Can you please recommend a solution?

    Sorry for the delay in this response.

    You will need to setup a combination of a 2-port KVM switch and a 4-port video splitter. For a robust system you may want to stay away from Cable KVM switches.

    The two computers will get connected to the KVM switch.

    To the console ports of the KVM switch you will connect one keyboard/mouse, and - instead of one monitor - the 4-port video splitter, which will take the video coming from the selected PC and display it (in duplication) on the for monitors connected to it. Make sure the video splitter comes with a cable. If it doesn't - make sure to get one to make the connection.

    Hope this helps!
