I'm actually curious to hear and answer to this too, but it would be baller to have it work for 3 computers and with a mouse...

also, is there a way to have one main pc and have a direct connection of remote access to other computers?

That would be nice because then I wouldn't need multiple screens hooked up to multiple computers just to check if its working with Vray Distributed rendering?

Nice question Strat, sorry I don't personally have an answer.. Just added to your question a little bit.

Here is a guy who used an apple keyboard on a pc. Have you tied to just plug your mac keyboard into your PC to see if it will even find it?

This reminds me of that video. Two girls, one keyboard, or something like that.

If you don't need to be working on one of the machines, like if it was for rendering, you could use a VNC but I assume it's not what you want stratocaster

I've used Trendnet KVM hubs for a decade now - and they're rock solid and reliable. Still running on VGA though, so I can't comment on the newer ones with digital output....

any kvm switch would do the trick, other then that it would be trivial to make a program that sends keyboard events over the network to another computer but i'm too lazy.
