  1. Just to check, you plugged that sabrent hub into the monitor, but where did you plug the monitor downstream usb into?
  2. you said that the usb ports on the kvm do not work, correct?
  3. It looks like that sabrent hub has power switches for each port, have you verified that they’re on?
  4. Can you describe what you have plugged into where? Based on your other comment about this working with an older monitor (which shouldn’t affect the kvm’s usb ports) it sounds like your configuration might be the issue.

not sure if this is the exact one but I have something similar to this. I paid ~~12 bucks for it, this is probably more expensive now because it’s older/out of stock. I would recommend just looking for something similar rather than buying the exact same one at this price. I got it because it was cheap at the time, there’s nothing special about it.

Okay, well it seems you answered your own question. This is exactly what I have. It’s nice because button isn’t on top of the switch so I can mount it under the desk but still easily reach the switch.

I use this and it is great. https://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-Peripheral-Computers-Controller-Included/dp/B07FR4CKBM think that’s more than I paid though. Also modded it to have a wireless button.

I have one of these and it works great. Charging is not super fast though.

For sure, its this one:

That hooks up to one of these on the MBP side:

There are other options with HDMI switching that would allow you to do it all in one click, but that HDMI won’t support more than 60FPS which isn’t good enough on the PC side for gaming.

Rather than the first switch I linked I might actually try to get something like this, which has a remote switch, because I would like to mount the switch under my desk:
