Video noise with KVM

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have this setup:

Apple 30" Cinema display
ATEN 1644 4-port KVM
2008 era Mac Pro, ATI 5870 video card, dual boot windows/mac osX

I get a lot of video noise when I run things through the KVM, but the noise has different qualities on the Windows and the Mac side. Removing the KVM and the noise goes away - when booted into the mac I get a burst of green static lines that move down the screen, when booted into Windows I get flickering white line segments (1-2 mm long) all over the black areas of the screen.

Any ideas? Is it just a bad kvm?

Yeah, it sounds like a sync issue, which would involve attenuation in the KVM. You might try cleaning contacts, but other than that... try getting a new one with a return window.
