Troubleshooting / FAQ 
"My hotkey commands don't work or stopped working
● Make sure the keyboard is plugged into dedicated mouse/keyboard ports
● Try using Scroll Lock as a hotkey trigger, if not, then Right-Ctrl."

"My keyboard does not have a Scroll Lock button
● Use Right-Ctrl, Right-Ctrl, 1, or 2 to confirm the trigger isn't already set to Scroll Lock.
● Press and hold the yellow switch button for 15 seconds. If KVM beeps, turn it off and back on. The hotkey trigger will now be set to Right-Ctrl."

"I accidentally turned Passthrough Mode off and the keyboard no longer functions
● Use a basic 104-key keyboard to turn Passthrough Mode back on.
● We recommend keeping Passthrough Mode on at all times unless using Linux."
