Hi!

I'm looking for a switch to use one keyboard, one mouse and one monitor on two computers. Easy to find. But I'm looking for a switch that is capable of switching the sound (Soundblaster) and a bidirectional printer (HP OfficeJet) too. I don't want to have two switches but only *one*. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

I don't believe such a thing exists.

The only solution is to do it by yourself. Perhaps a short-wave radio switch (with A LOT of connections) serve that purpose...

Thanks! Very good hint! They also have distributors here in Austria. But unfortunately the switchbox I wanted to have doesn't exist. But they've got one that is able to switch keyboard, mouse, video and sound.
