KVM issue with monitor

  1. Ever since I setup a KVM switch to have 2 computers sharing 1 monitor/keyboard/mouse, I have had monitor problems.

    There is a subtle but noticeable wobble/ wavey-ness thing happening across the screen when connected to one of my computers (my AMD).

    Also, my display (with AMD computer) has a stretched horizontally look. I have tried different screen resolutions but they all give this stretched look which I didn't have before.

    And my AMD used to give 1920 x 1080 as an option for max resolution, but this is now capped at 1600 x 1200.

    Please help as this is very annoying & looks awful. The specs of the KVM switch say "Max. Resolution: 1920 x 1440. Bandwidth: 200MHZ"



    My AMD computer:


    Windows 7 64 bit SP1.
    AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6GHz.
    4GB Ram.

    Philips 226V3L.

    Video card ATI Radeon HD 4350

    What is the make and model of the KVM switch you purchased? I have tried lower quality switches at my work and found similar results. Ended up having to get one of the more expensive / better brand ones that solved the issues.

    It has no brand, but the model is FJ-2UK. Very common on eBay.
