I have a 4 port KVM switch. For the way I work, it's wonderful.
2 go to machines I use often. The 3rd goes to someplace that was interesting
a while ago, and the 4th floats for something like bringing up a new system
or debugging why something doesn't come up after a power glitch.
90+% of the time I'm switched to my main machine and ssh-ing to the others.
I don't remember any troubles with any of the display parameters.
The KVM box is VGA and PS2. I have a VGA to HDMI adapter and a PS2 to USB
It may take a not too old monitor to provide the parameters. Or maybe my
monitor is just good at adapting to what gets sent to it. For the
debug/rescue modes, I'm not using fancy graphics so I might not notice if the
display was doing some fancy pixel mapping, but I tend to notice that stuff.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
