Hi there, this is my first post and I stumbled upon this website in search for USB Keyboard over network solution. Apologize if this has been asked before and please direct me to forum where this was discussed as I couldn’t find it. Here is the scenario:
I have a media center computer running windows 10. I have it sitting in my basement and have it connected via HDBaseT device so I can view it from any TV in my house. I am looking for a solution to use wireless usb keyboard/mouse combo to connect to my computer while I am in front of my TV on 2nd floor. Remember, computer is in basement. There isn’t a single wireless USB keyboard/mouse combo I could find that can have that type of range for connectivity. To overcome this, I started thinking about having keyboard USB dongle connected to my computer over WIFI/Network.
Here is my thought process on how Virtualhere can help me: I install Virtualhere server on Rasberry Pi that would be in the same room as TV (second floor) and connect USB dongle to that device. I connect rasberry pi to same network as my PC and install Virtualhere client on PC. That way, i would be able to use USB wireless keyboard/mouse to interact with my PC.
Here are my concerns/questions:
1. Is there a lag in connectivity? Remember TV would be displaying near realtime stream of computer screen but mouse and keyboard are connected over network to that computer.
2. Can I have multiple Virtualhere server connected to same client (PC). That way, I can have 1 virtualhere server in each room with its own multimedia keyboard instead of carrying same keyboard/mouse to everyroom.
3. Likely most important question, is my understand of Virtualhere software correct and it can do solve for my scenario?
