Installation
This product is composed of two different units: the Host Unit and
the Remote Unit. The Host Unit takes input controls from a computer
(using a PS/2 or USB integrated KVM cable) and allows access to
them via the Remote Unit over Category 5 UTP cable. The remote
computer also connects to the Remote Unit using an integrated KVM
cable (again, either PS/2 or USB) and allows the user at the remote
site to control that computer or the host computer using keyboard
hotkey commands.
A PS/2 mouse and keyboard and a VGA monitor are connected to the
Remote Unit (the console). You can also connect console peripherals
to the Host Unit if you need direct as well as remote access to that
computer.
Preparing Your Site
Before you can install the the product, you need to prepare your site.
1. Determine where the host computer will be located and set up the computer.
2. Determine where the console devices (mouse, keyboard, monitor) will be located
and place them appropriately
3. If you are using surface cabling, ensure you have enough Category 5 unshielded
twisted pair (UTP) network cabling to connect the Host Unit to the Remote Unit’s
location, and that each end is terminated with RJ-45 connector.
OR
4. If you are using premisses cabling, ensure that the category 5 unshielded twisted
pair (UTP) network cabling between the Host Unit and the Remote Unit has been
properly terminated in a wall outlet in each location and there is a patch cable long
enough to connect the Remote Unit and the Host Unit to their respective outlets

1. Place the Host Unit near the computer.
2. Switch off the computer and disconnect any existing VGA and input connections.
3. Using a StarTech.com integrated KVM cable (see page 8 for part numbers), connect
the end of the cable that has two (USB) or three (PS/2) connectors to the VGA Out
connector and the USB or mouse and keyboard PS/2 connectors on the computer
as appropriate (The PS/2 version of the cable is color coded.) Connect the opposite
end of the cable with a single connector to the gray coded connector marked
COMPUTER on the Host Unit of the KVM extender.
4. If you wish to have console access to the host computer, connect a PS/2 mouse,
keyboard and VGA monitor indicators marked as CONSOLE on the Host Unit.
5. Connect the UTP cable connection for the Remote Unit to the NETWORK RJ-45
connector on the Host Unit. Connect the opposite end to a terminated wall outlet (if
you are using premises cabling).

5. Connect the UTP cable connection for Remote Unit to the NETWORK RJ-45
connector on the Remote Unit. Connect the opposite end to a terminated wall
outlet (if using premises cabling).
CAUTION: The UTP network cables that connect the Host and Remote Units carry
electrical current and should not be plugged in to other devices, as they may cause
damage. We strongly recommend marking the cables the cables you are using with
this product at both locations for easy identification.

Driver Installation
No driver installation is required as the SV565UTP uses standard keyboard/mouse
drivers.
Video Compensation
Video Compensation allows the user to adjust the equalization on the Remote Unit to
optimize video performance based on the length of cable being used, as well as other
factors that may affect . There are five segments of various lengths of CAT 5 cables from
which to chose; to achieve the best visibility, please refer to the section titled Keyboard
Shortcut Command Sequences, to adjust the video compensation.
First, note the length of CAT 5 cable you used. Then, use the hotkeys to adjust the video
compensation accordingly. You can use the hotkey sequence as outlined in the section
titled Keyboard Shortcut Command Sequences.

Using the SV565UTP KVM Extender
This section details how to use your KVM extender at both the host and remote
locations.
Using the Host Unit
The Host Unit performs two functions: it allows a user at the Remote Unit to assume
control of the computer on the Host Unit (Computer A), and it also permits the user
at the Host Unit to use Computer A. It has three modes that control which user may
access the system at a given time: Auto (the KVM extender looks for keyboard or
mouse activity from both Host and Remote and automatically accepts input from the
active console), Local (only the user seated at the Host Unit can access the system), and
Remote (only the user at the Remote Unit can access Computer A).
You can use either keyboard shortcuts (if there is a keyboard and mouse attached)
or the mode switch on the top of the Host Unit to control which user has access to
Computer A. By default, the Host Unit operates in Auto mode, and switches to the next
mode in the sequence each time the switch is pressed as follows:
Auto
Local
Remote
Having a keyboard and mouse attached to the console ports on the Host Unit is
recommended since it offers access to a number of extended features.

Using Remote Unit
Like the Host Unit, the Remote Unit performs two functions: it allows a user at the
Remote Unit to assume control of Computer A if the Host Unit is set to Auto or Remote
mode, and it also permits the user seated at the Remote Unit to use a locally connected
computer (Computer B) as though the SV565UTP KVM extender was transparent.
You can use either keyboard shortcuts or the mode switch on the top of the Remote
Unit to alternate control between A and B. Unlike the Host Unit, however, the switch on
top of the Remote unit only offers two selectable modes:
