Hi all!!

I have 2 computers with USB keyboard inputs and one USB keyboard and one USB mouse. I want to use the keyboard and mouse for both computers. I know they sell what's called a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch the issue I have is I don't need the "V" or video switch because both computers are running their own display. Is there a "KM" switch out there or more generally is there a 1-input 2-output USB selector?

Thanks!
