HDMI KVM Switch Compact 42340

Just bought a LINDY HDMI Switch, but it was not working. Well, the seller send me another one, as we thought there was a problem with the switch.
The second one is also not working! Switching the mouse and keyboard is ok, but there is nothing getting to the screen from any of the PC.
As soon as I connect the screen direct from PC, no problem.
I`m running windows 10 one PC1, and windows 8 on PC2.
Please help!

regards pollemil

Hi, Could you tell me what resolutions you are using and what length of cable you are using on the output of the KVM. Was the problem with the original KVM the same.

Would it be possible to try a different Monitor?

Are you using any kind of adapters or converters? It is strange that 2 behaved in the same way

I think that's the best solution. Perhaps he can try the units on some other machines
