This past weekend I had to shutdown all the blades and power cycle the
chassis to un-stick the KVM in our 1955 Chassis. 

How did you get the Digital connection to work?  When I tried connecting
the digital port to a Dell 2161DS KVM over IP Switch it did not do
anything.  The only way I could get access was to use the Analog
converter cable that comes with the chassis and connect it to one of the
SIP modules.
