I have one wireless keyboard and I would like to use it with my 360, PS3, and Wii but I don't want to have to get up off the couch to do it. I have searched google to no avail. Some guy in another thread mentioned Gefen but I couldn't seem to find anything on their site that was USB-only that is reasonably priced...

Does anyone know if a USB switch with at least 3 ports and a remote control exists?

Thanks

I finally found one with remote control but it is discontinued and the cheapest price I could find for a used one is $350 which is outrageous. It's made for DVI switching but it does USB too.

Gefen model EXT-DVIKVM-441DL

I guess I will have to stick with a manual switch $20 one.

I ended up commissioning someone to mod a USB switch to add an IR sensor and I am glad I did! He did an awesome job (still in progress), check it out here:

I'll make a video of my own once I receive it.
