I've stopped using that splitter now, I was playing a game last night and it started going really slow, ended up having to quit. Logitech keyboard and mouse keep disconnecting (can hear the noise win 7 makes) and then trying to reinstall the drivers
, other times they are intermittently unresponsive or I type in a key and it registers 20 times.
Had problems like this before with logitech keyboards, wireless ones, not sure what I did to fix it, but anyway I am using them both connected directly to the computer + the ext drive so going to see how it goes, will report back.
Don't understand why a passive device such as a splitter could have such intermittent issues, unless there is a dodgy connection inside it and it's cause problems with how the power is fed/split which is in turn causing further problems such as this game I was playing yesterday grinding to a halt and the screen going all wonky.
