how are KVM switches so expensive it's literally n ports with a switch, why do you need to have power to the thing. Make it a dumb hub.
@kai whyyyyyyy just cut the cable and only run it to the end if it's selected idk
@wxcafe Unless it's a physical switch with a bazillion poles you need to have transistors to switch the signals and those need to be powered
They're essentially acting as selectively-activated amplifiers.
@tindall yeah I mean why not have a physical switch with a bazillion poles
@wxcafe it would be hard to move, fail easily, and also probably cause pretty extreme signal degradation for VGA which is analog
@tindall ugh physics are a pain
