INSTALLATION
Pre-Configuration
Where to Place the KVM Switch:
The compact size of the OmniView SOHO Series KVM Switch makes
it perfect for desktop placement. Consider the following when
deciding where to place the KVM Switch: whether or not you intend
to use the manual push buttons for selecting ports; the length of the
cables attached to your keyboard, mouse, and monitor; the location
of your CPUs from your console; and the length of the cables you use
to connect your computers to the KVM.
Cable Distance Requirements:For PS/2 computers: VGA signals are
best retained when transmitted up to 25 feet (7.5m). Beyond 25 feet
(7.5m), probability of video degradation increases with an increase in
distance. For this reason, your PS/2 computer should be placed within
25 feet (7.5m) of the KVM Switch.
Note: If your computer needs to be more than 25 feet (7.5m) from
the KVM Switch, you can use the Belkin CAT5 Extender to
extend your PS/2 keyboard, PS/2 mouse, and monitor up to
500 feet (152.4m) away using standard CAT5 UTP cable.
For USB computers: USB signals are the strongest when transmitted
up to 15 feet (4.5m) between the KVM and the CPU. Beyond 15 feet
(4.5m), probability of signal degradation, which can cause the device
to fail, is likely.
Cautions and Warnings:
Avoid having cables near fluorescent lights, air conditioning
equipment, or machines that create electrical noise
(e.g., vacuum cleaners).

USING YOUR SOHO SERIES KVM SWITCH
Powering up the Systems
Once all cables have been connected, power up the CPUs that are
attached to the SOHO Series KVM Switch. All computers can be
powered on simultaneously. The SOHO Series KVM Switch emulates
a mouse and keyboard on each port and allows your computer to
boot normally.
Your Belkin SOHO Series KVM Switch should now be ready for use.
You can select which computer to operate by either the push-button
Selector Button located on the front panel of the SOHO Series 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 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 Front-Panel Selector Buttons
You can directly select which computer you wish to control by
pressing the corresponding push button 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
You can command the SOHO Series 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 SOHO
Series 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.

In AutoScan mode the SOHO Series 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 ],
[0], [0]
Enable AutoScan mode—#0 key
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 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.
