Put the hooks through the holes and push the base toward the front of the housing to lock the base into place. Please refer to diagram for assistance. 9 STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE Installing the HID USB Driver Note: On some computers, you must enable USB support on your system BIOS. Please reference your computer manufacturer’s manual or motherboard manual to verify that USB support is enabled. 1. Connect the 9V, 1A power adapter to the KVM Switch. 2. Boot up the computer you wish to connect via USB as you would normally with the USB keyboard, monitor, and USB mouse connected directly to the computer. 3. After the operating system finishes loading, using a standard USB A-to-B cable, insert the end with the B-type connector to any KVM Switch CPU port. Insert the other end of the cable with the Atype connector to an available port on your USB computer. Your computer should recognize your KVM Switch and automatically install the HID USB driver. Once the driver is installed, you can power down your computer. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each additional USB computer you wish to connect to the KVM Switch. 10 STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE Connecting the Console 1. Power down your computers. 2. Remove the rear panel of the KVM Switch to expose the ports. 3. Connect the USB keyboard to the designated USB port with the keyboard symbol on the KVM Switch. Note: You must connect the USB keyboard to the designated USB connector to have keyboard hot key switching functions. For more information on keyboard hot keys, see page 14. 4. Connect the USB mouse to the designated USB port with the mouse symbol on the KVM Switch. 5. Connect any USB devices you wish to share to the USB hub labeled “Device 1, Device 2” on the KVM Switch. Note: When sharing USB storage devices, CD-RWs, or hard drives, do not switch while operating. 6. Connect the monitor cable to the designated “Console DVI” port on the KVM Switch. 11 STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE 7. Using the audio cable attached to your speakers, connect the male 3.5mm plug to “audio” on the Console of your KVM Switch. (This step is not required to use the KVM Switch.) 8. Using the mic cable attached to your microphone, connect the male 3.5mm plug to “mic” on the Console of your KVM Switch. (This step is not required to use the KVM Switch.) 12 STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE Connecting the PCs 1. Using your Belkin KVM Cables for SOHO Series with Audio (Belkin part number F1D9201-XX), connect the USB cable from your computer’s USB port to the USB port on the KVM Switch. 2. Take the DVI cable and connect the male end of the cable to the DVI port on the back of the computer. Connect the other male end of the DVI cable to the back of the KVM Switch for CPU1. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for all computers. 13 STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION GUIDE 3. Using the audio cable, connect one end of the male 3.5mm plug to the “Speaker Out” jack of your sound card or computer, and connect the other end of the “audio” jack to your KVM Switch. 4. Using a second audio cable, connect one end of the male 3.5mm plug to the “Mic Out” jack of your sound card or computer, and connect the other end of the “mic” jack to your KVM Switch. Powering Up the Systems Once all cables have been connected, turn on all CPUs that are attached to the KVM Switch. All computers can be powered on simultaneously. Your KVM Switch should be ready for use. 14 USING YOUR KVM SWITCH You can select which computer to operate by either the direct-access port selector located on the front panel of the KVM Switch or through keyboard hot key commands. Note that it will take 1–2 seconds for the video to display after switching. This is due to the refresh rate of the video signal. There is also re-synchronization of the mouse and keyboard signal that takes place. This is normal operation and ensures that proper synchronization is established. Selecting a Computer Using Direct-Access Port Selectors You can directly select which computer you wish to control by pressing the corresponding direct-access port selector next to the appropriate port. The LED will be lit to indicate that the port is currently selected. Selecting a Computer Using Keyboard Hot Key Commands Note: You must connect the USB keyboard to the designated USB connector to have keyboard hot key switching function on the keyboard. You can command the KVM Switch to switch ports with a simple keyboard command sequence by using the [SCROLL LOCK] key and [UP], [DOWN] arrow keys. To send commands to the KVM Switch, the [SCROLL LOCK] key must be pressed twice within two seconds. You will hear a beep for confirmation. Then you can press the [UP], [DOWN] arrow keys to switch between ports. Switch to next active port, [UP] arrow Switch to previous active port, [DOWN] arrow You can switch directly to any port by entering the port number of the port you wish to use. For example, if you press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK], , the computer on port 2 will be selected. Switch to port 2—#2 key Switch to port 4—#4 key 15 USING YOUR KVM SWITCH AutoScan Mode In AutoScan mode the KVM Switch remains on one port for 10 seconds before switching to the next. This time interval cannot be changed. To enable AutoScan mode press [SCROLL LOCK], [SCROLL LOCK], ,  Note: There is no mouse or keyboard control in this mode. This is necessary to prevent errors. Otherwise, if the user is moving the mouse or using the keyboard when the KVM switches to the next port, communication between the computer and KVM Switch could be interrupted and cause erratic mouse movement, or wrong characters to display when using the keyboard. To disable AutoScan mode, press the space bar. Enable AutoScan mode—#0 key Connecting USB Devices to the Built-In 2-Port Hub The KVM Switch includes a built-in 2-port USB v1.1 device hub that allows you to connect two additional shared peripherals. When you connect any USB device to the KVM Switch, that device can be accessed through whichever computer you are currently using. Note: This is not suitable for storage devices such as LS-120 drives and Zip® drives because you cannot dynamically switch ports and disconnect a mounted storage device when it is in use by the operating system. For example, you are working on computer 1 with a file open that is stored on a Zip drive connected to the KVM Switch. If you switch to computer 2 while the file is still open, you will get a “file lost or corrupted” error message on computer 1. The same will occur when you are using a streaming device such as the Belkin VideoBus USB video capture device. You can switch from one computer safely to the next, only if the VideoBus is no longer in use by the first computer. You will notice that after the USB KVM switches to another computer, the mouse remains inoperative for one or two seconds. This is normal, and ensures that proper USB synchronization is established. 16 BELKIN KVM SWITCHES AND ACCESSORIES OmniView KVM Switches OmniView E Series These KVM devices allow you to control two or four computers from one console and make switching between computers more convenient.
