Deattach separate X server from keyboard and mouse

Hi All,

I have openSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 installed. I use configuration with one primary monitor and secondary connected via HDMI as separate X server. Is it possible to deattach the second one from keyboard and mouse inputs?

The reason for that strange request is that my TV set, that I use for the second screen, is in 10 meters far from me and I can't see what's going on there. My idea is configure xVNC server for the second screen and connect to it from the primary one. But the problem is that mouse and keyboard are the same for both X servers and when I'm trying to do something from VNC client I always get some unpleasant troubles.

Thx you in advance.


kde, vnc, x11
