    KVM switch for XP machine & Windows 7 video workstation?

    Peru Bob Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      I am currently running Premiere Pro CS4 on an underpowered XP MCE SP3 duo core machine  (3 disk setup) and am considering purchasing a Windows 7 workstation (i7, 3 disk setup).


      I would like to use the W7 machine for video editing only and use the XP machine for all else.


      1) Will a KVM switch for the monitor, keyboard (wireless), and mouse (wireless) work for this setup?


      2) I read that some KVM switches won't support "hot buttons" on a keyboard. Is that correct?


      3) What KVM switch would you recommend, if it would be OK to use one?
