S-Video vs. ADB switch
I'm thinking about getting an S-Video switch like this to use as an ADB switch (swapping keyboard and mouse between two computers).
Anybody ever try this? I've hot-swapped plenty of keyboards by hand without having any trouble. I'm mostly wondering what really goes on inside one of these boxes. Is it a clean completely-disconnect-from-the-first then connect to the second?
Even if they're both connected momentarily - I'll have both the systems plugged into the same power strip, so they'll have the same ground. Is there any potential harm here?
