    Hi Jef, sorry you're running into these issues.

    Can you try removing the AIMOS KVM from your setup and seeing if it works when you connect TinyPilot directly to one of your NVR systems?

      hi michael,

      first thanks for your reply , i bought all the tested components to avoid compatibility issue .

      in your advise , u need me to connect tinypilot directly to nvr without event the hdmi repeater ? i will do that tomorrow and update you.

      mean while the issue is the setup cannot translate mouse movement to nvr, keyboard is ok. will keep you posted tomorrow.

        The AIMOS KVM works, but it's not an officially supported component. If we're trying to track down why the mouse isn't passing through, it'll be easier if we cut out the third-party components to see if it's an AIMOS problem or a TinyPilot problem.

          hi michael

          its not translating mouse movement, although mouse right click , scroll is taken on the old mouse location in the nvr. so i think their is a bug moving or translating the mouse movement from web interface to nvr side .

          note that nvr i use is dahua and mouse translation is important to operate nvr small screen that represent camera channel.

          appreciate your support

            Hi Jef, sorry to hear you're still seeing issues. Can you share your logs from System > Logs in the web dashboard?

                Unfortunately, there isn't anything helpful in the logs. The logs show no mouse errors, so the TinyPilot device thinks that it's sending mouse movement successfully.

                Sadly, there's nothing else I can think of to diagnose this issue.

                If this prevents you from using TinyPilot for your environment, I can take a return for a full refund if you send an email to
