REQUIREMENTS

To use Pi-KVM v3, you will need the following things, which are NOT included in the kit:

KNOWN ISSUES & LIMITATIONS

  • The actual frame rate of the image received via HDMI will depend on the network bandwidth, resolution and the load on the Raspberry Pi. This is usually ~20-24 FPS for 1080p over LAN.
  • AIMOS switches are not fully compatible with the video capture device (as with regular HDMI CSI bridge).
  • There may be compatibility issues with some motherboards (such as HP or DELL) which are the same as those that exist with Pi-KVM v2. Not everything is perfect, but if you have already used Pi-KVM v2 – our new v3 will work perfectly and please you. If there is no image from the BIOS, you can fine-tune the HDMI settings, but it is possible that the USB keyboard or Mass Storage devices will not be available in the BIOS.
  • If you plan to use Pi-KVM v3 with an Apple Mac, then you should know that you won’t be able to get into UEFI or Recovery Mode. Inside macOS, the device will work fine. To use with Apple UEFI, you need to purchase AUM board (Advanced USB Module, a small optional device for Pi-KVM v3).

UPCOMING SOFTWARE FEATURES

  • The audio capture device via HDMI works, but is not currently supported by Pi-KVM software.
  • The fan controller operates at a constant speed, but will learn to adjust the speed smoothly in the future.
  • Currently, MJPEG is used for video transmission, but you will soon get H.264 support.
  • All of these features will be available in one of the future free updates of the operating system.
