- I'm looking for a KVM Switch that allows me to operate both my Macbook and my Desktop computer (Not Simultaneously) with the same peripherals and the same monitor.

- I intend to plug the monitor into the desktop directly using HDMI to DVI, and HDMI to HDMI into the KVM for the MacBook.

- The issue is that I need to plug in a USB Presonus Audio-box, a dual USB Keyboard, a mouse and a gamepad into the KVM.

- I can't seem to find one that supports that many USB Connections with only 2 computer ports.

- Any Help would be appreciated!

Plug all your peripherals into a powered USB hub and then a single USB connection to the KVM switch.
Thanks for the response!

The only thing I wonder about that is; will there be significant delay when using the mouse and keyboard?

I do use the desktop for gaming so significant delay there might impact the experience..

A KVM already has to have a USB hub if it has multiple USB ports for each switched port. No physical difference.
