    Has anyone heard of one, I know that you can get RF connectors to allow your printer to be in a different room to the PC, what I'd like is the PC to be in a different room to the monitor, keyboard and mouse - does anyone know of anything that can sort this?

    Some kind of video sender for the monitor signal, probably would have audio, but I suspect they're normally for TV connections, so you'd need a transducer, too.. Try Keene's at http://www.keene.co.uk

    An RF K/B and mouse for remote PC control, eg Gyration Ultra Suite, or you could use an RF remote, eg X10 mouse remote.

    What you want is a wireless KVM switch. I know a bit about KVM systems but have never seen a wireless one. These days most use UTP network type cable as the transimssion medium..
    Companies like Avocent have thsi as their main business -
    www.avocent.com
    These are mainly professional suystems used in dealing room, call centres etc. so I would expect the cost to be prohibitive.

    You may want to iuse Google with KVM and wireless as search terms.

    The snag with that is a KVM switch is likely to degrade the video signal to an unacceptable degree. I have a Belkin x8 port KVM, which works very nicely, but it does affect the picture quality a fair bit. It's not a problem for w/s and server use, because it's hardly noticeable in general use, but I wouldn't want to use it for HCPC.

    Conceivably the more up market equipment might maintain signal integrity better than my Belkin but, as you say, it's likely to be expensive.
