I have a customer who purchased 3 no name XP box DVRs. He has been paying my be the hour to get everything working, so I don't mind too much. Anyway, I still have one problem with them I can't seem to find a work around for.
He has one monitor, keyboard, and mouse going through a switch box for all three units. The two that are just sitting there humming away while you are viewing the third will eventually lose communications with the mouse. When you switch back to those units the keyboard and monitor work fine, but the mouse just sits there.
Is there a way to tell Windows to continue to look for signals from the mouse ad infinitum? (PS2 Mouse) I know, I know... the easy solution is to install three mice, but he doesn't want that. Actually he will be viewing these units remotely more often than locally, but I would like to try and have a solution for the problem when it arises, or better yet before it arises.
