Is there a product you know about that allows Bluetooth keyboards and mice to KVM with wired keyboards and mice. I have someone whose looking for a KVM but has both wired and wireless input devices and would like to put it all on a single KVM.

How about Belkin

I'll get one some time its on the list of things to get when I have the money, a few of the belkins support USB take a look.

EDIT
The fact that the K&M a wireless should not affect anything if they are USB then you should be fine with one of the USB KVM’s listed.

That's not what I heard. Supposedly each time a Bluetooth device switches systems it has to be authenticated again.

His setup is x# computers, then ----> KVM ----> bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

What you're asking for would require the keyboard and mouse to be paired with the KVM, and the KVM connected to the PCs via either PS/2 or USB. I don't know of any KVMs which have inbuilt bluetooth, so you're probably out of luck.

Ok thanks. Would a RF mouse and keyboard work?

computers --> KVM --> RF mouse and keyboard like a mx1000

I don't see why not, since an RF transmitter is just like a USB mouse. Just get a KVM with USB ports.
