Re: USB KVM Switch modify project - 2

Question for electricians here : If you power the lolin through the KVM, can you drive those lines to GND directly or it'll damage the Lolin ?

As for the remote, you need IR, can't use Wifi ?

Re: USB KVM Switch modify project - 2

Understood. My electricity knowledge is not that great but basically your KVM will provide +5V and little switches need to be grounded to operate. You do want to command them remotely with a remote (existing or that doesn't matter ?). The IR led is for what though ? You have to pilot something else ...
