Toggle Keyboard between PC and PS3 possible?

Post by Ryuma » Tue May 15, 2012 9:38 am

Hey,

i'm searching for a way to easy switch or share my keyboard between PC and PS3
I don't need it for playing games, i just need it to write messages an fill out input fields and so.

Is that possible with the GIMX?

PS:

I got my PS3 connected to my PC with this little cutie http://www.avermedia.com/product/Produc ... spx?Id=499
so i can play PS3 in Fullscreen or just windowed on one of my PC TFT Screens and can switch comfortably between Applications Browser and PS3 Window.
Whats left to make me Happy is just using my keaboard for both, coolest would be by pushing a hotkey for switching ^^ but that
would just be anorther nice goody.

Thanks for reading

Can't be done using GIMX I'm afraid.
What you want is a 2-port switch box with USB ports like this
