    1 keyboard 2 computers


    Usage: Dual pc stream, so I have obs running on my stream pc and I need my stream pc to capture my keypresses, via Nohboard and display it on obs, is there any way to get my keypressess from my gaming pc to my stream pc

    Edit: Wired USB Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard, also Ive done tons of searching but all I can find are switches that only allow you to use it on 1 pc at a time

    I think an electronic A-B switch is what you're looking for, if you buy the "mechanical" A-B switch, don't hurriedly pop back and forth, it eventually spreads the soldier connections. Wait, is your keyboard wireless? Then, ignore my post. :)

    Probably not, I think I miss-read the thread :)

    I am using a KVM/Keyboard Video Mouse switch with 1 Monitor 1 Mouse and 1 Keyboard with 4 computers connected, each with different Operating Systems. All I have to do is press a button to change to a different computer, led lights indicate which is active. I got Win10 Home on a new one 4 years ago. The really nice part is 3 of the computers cost me nothing but my time, rehabbed instead of going to the landfill and got the free Win10 Pro on 1, free IP on 1 and free Linux Mint on the 4th. The switch is available for USB mouse, keyboard and VGA video, haven't looked for one that accommodates DVI.

    Oh nice, but I need my keyboard input to be delivered to both pcs simultaneously, since I need to capture my key strokes on both computers, the gaming pc will be playing the game with the keyboard and the streaming pc will capture my key strokes and display a keyboard overlay that shows what keys I press at that time, so it needs to be continuos I cant just keep switching back and forth

    I saw an advertisement for a USB device for 2 computers to 1 thing or 2 things to 1 computer but there was a switch on it for making a selection, closest I've seen but the switch removes it as a possibility.

    You may have to visit in person, or, go online to, a serious business-oriented computer place and tell them exactly what you want to do, let them offer a solution if there is one.
