    I have this keyboard: IOGEAR - GKM611B - Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad and it has the ability to switch between 6 Bluetooth devices. Pressing FN + 1-6 switches instantly to that device. FN + TAB cycles thru the paired devices.

    Hi there
    That looks good -- will investigate further -- I really want to shy away from the old mechanical KVM switch boxes where possible -- blue tooth is fine for keyboards -- not so impressive for high quality music transfer --but that's another issue.

    Will rep you if this works !!! (I'm MEAN on this !!).

    Thanks again

    Cheers
