Is there such a thing as a PS/2 mouse/keyboard Y-splitter? After getting my Philips wireless keyboard combo (for my Pronto Mouse Mode), I'd like to continue to use my Airboard and remote. So that means I have to keep both receivers, unless there is a cheaper USB or serial method?

Anyone have multiple mice/keyboard set-ups?

Yes, the ps-2 splitter cables exist. I have several myself. However, it is hit and miss. I've found that some keyboards tolerate splitting more than others. From what I've seen, splitting a mouse cable works more often than keyboards.


The only sure-fire way to do it is to use a series of products called Y-Key, Y-Mouse, etc (I'm not exactly sure of the name, I can look it up when I get home). This product has built-in circuitry to electronically separate the signals and switch to the one that is being used. It works very well, but it is a bit expensive at about $45.
