KBD/Mouse/Mon Switchbox

Post by Geof Abruz » Wed, 26 May 1999 04:00:00



I'd like to consolidate the IO on my 2 A4000's and my A3000T into a single
switchbox.  These items are pretty commonly abailable for PC's can I use a
PC one for my Amigas?  Can anyone reccommend a specific brand/model that
has worked for them?

thanks,

Geof

Well, the purely mechanical types should be OK. But beware: I have
apretty * experience with one of those. I blew up a PC mainboard
keyboard port. I am looking into designing a fully electronic one now
myself, although I plan that one to be for PC-type peripherals (which
shouldn't be too much of a problem, although I want to allow the switch
to be made using a key-combination on the KBD. The connection to the
Amiga is planned to be made using some extra adapters.

Cheers,

Eelke

1. Swap: A2000-kbd for PC-kbd converter

I am after a PC keyboard converter for my A2500.  I know that three
different models exist:

          KB-10
          SwitchHitter
          Insert104

I want to swap an A2000 keyboard for any of these devices.

I would prefer to deal with someone in Australia, otherwise postage will
become a problem, but I am prepared to buy one outright from anywhere on
the planet if the price is acceptible.

Thanks,
Phil.
