You want this:

Along with a bunch of Cat 7 Cable.

They also make one for about half that price but no KVM.

Here’s one. Looks like the lowest price for 4k 60hz. I’d start here and work my way up if it doesn’t work or if quality isn’t up to your standard. Make sure you don’t buy anything that’s not returnable. YMMV.

1) You could get a kvm extender and run Cat5e/Cat6a but as you said you may deal with some latency and you will still need another set of peripheral devices. I thought about getting one for my VIVE.

2) It’s an apple tv for games. From what I’ve heard and experienced it works fine until you run something like Mortal Kombat X and have to basically be a Jedi and know what’s gonna happen before it happens. Lag sucks and it’s basically and underpowered PC but it can do Netflix in 4k.

3)This is what I went with, you can still stream games if you’re low on hard drive space, Netflix is finally bringing 4k to PC w/ Kaby lake and you can customize and configure your PC any way you want.

Here is an example: https://www.amazon.com/AV-Access-Extender-Independent-Management/dp/B01GYKVWC4

(I have not used that brand, just did a search for hdbaset with usb and audio)

Someone suggested this, which looks like the way to go. I just haven’t had a chance to buy it and try it out yet. Good luck! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GYKVWC4/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_VXBQ2N15Y1PGZ8NBVV5G?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

While a second computer is likely the least expensive option with the most flexibility, it will require some networking knowledge to integrate properly.
An alternate to a second computer could be a KVM extender like this one which has HDMI, USB for keyboard/mouse and USB web cam, and bi-directional audio, all over a CAT5e/CAT6 cable. If the bi-directional audio is not what you are looking for, there is a version without that is about $70 cheaper.

I have run MIDI cables 100-ft and longer with no issues, but it is all dependent on the quality of cable and the RF and power in the environment. If you’re worried about that, you can send MIDI data over CATX cable as well with the appropriate convertor. Alternately, depending on the use, it should be possible to connect a USB MIDI device on the KVM extender which would connect to the main computer.

Building a second desktop would probably be “easiest.” For your budget, the search term I would use in google would be a “kvm extender.” likely from no name brands. I’ll provide a few links for products that represent what I mean, but can in no way guarantee their functionality or applicability to your project, since I haven’t personally used any of them.

I’d probably try converting MIDI to USB and sending it over the same transmission. It MAY not work, but I’d say it’s worth a try. Your other option, based on some googling, looks to be “RTP MIDI” or “Network MIDI.” There are some products out there that will send MIDI over a network, but you’re looking at another $150 minimum, with this product landing around $250.

There are a number of “XLR A/B” switches out there. Again, here’s a random option, no idea how well it works.

Best of luck, and I’ll second the suggestion to check out some other subs, as they probably have some more specific knowledge related to your questions.

I do the same thing, this works great for me:

Although, turns out it doesn’t have enough bandwidth to run the vive’s HDMI connection and usb connection at the same time. You can probably go with a cheaper one that only has HDMI. This requires a direct point to point connection through an ethernet cable, this is not something that can go through your router or a switch.

For the USB connection I run this cable:

I don’t notice any additional latency at all, it has been working flawlessly.
