How to connect smart dock to KVM switch

Jakes, B&H Photo
11 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I found the IOGEAR 4 port HDMI KVMP switch to be very useful and works great with my Samsung Smart Dock! I bought it about 6 months ago and I am very happy with it. The only issue is that because it works off the usb ports for switching between devices, depending on the device, there is an occasional lag. But it never lags when I switch from or to my Samsung smart dock that I connect my Note 3 to.

  • Excerpt: This was a great buy, has two extra USB 2.0 nodes with one on the front for use with thumb sticks or w/e other USB peripheral you use. The foot print of this KVM is half the size of my old VGA Belkin. I have no cons to report.

Nice KVM

  • Excerpt: Pros: USB control and Video can be switched separately.<br /><br />Cons: Having the USB and Video on different channels is a bit difficult. Only one button per channel which has to be pressed multiple times in some sequence in order to get desired effect. <br /><br />I have yet to fully test it because I need to connect the kvm to a VGA splitter box.

IOGear GCS 1794 KVM switches video well

Listener, B&H Photo
27 August 2009
  • Excerpt: I replaced a GCS 1764 with the 1794 because the 1764 had problems passing the video from more recent video chips, although it worked well with older chips. I presume that the 1794's ability to mimic the attached monitor accounts for the improved performance. I have not managed to test the ability to feed audio thru the HDMI connectors yet. My Panasonic receiver errors out when fed the HDMI video/audio. HDMI video feed direct to the monitor works fine.
  • Pros: Switches video well
  • Cons: Not sure about HDMI audio
