Keyboard/Mouse Controlling 4 DVRs from 60ft. away

    I have four DVRs which can be controlled using a USB mouse.
    Each DVR is connected to its own video screen.
    I'd like to connect all DVRs to a switch which will allow me to use only one mouse, switching control from one DVR to another. This single mouse should be located about 60 feet away from the DVRs.

    Can you offer a solution?

    This little US421A USB switching device will allow you to use one mouse to control your four DVRs.
    Since switching is accomplished by pressing on anyone of the four buttons on the switch, you will need this device to be located by the user, which means you will need to extend the USB connection 60 feet from each DVR to the switch. This extension can be facilitated by...
    1) USB extenders over CATx, such as UCE60, or
    2) USB booster cables

    Hope this helps!
