    The title I chose for the zip that I posted a couple of posts back is something of a misnomer with respect to the "Chatpad XP Driver". it is only a framework application that runs on XP which will attach to a wireless 360 controller through the wireless dongle.

    If someone has more knowledge about the USB byte array protocol, specifically that which the wireless 360 controller listens and responds to, then it may be possible for the controller to wake up the chatpad if the correct byte sequence(s) are supplied in one or more write statements to the controller's usb interface using the framework app.

    I'd be curious to know how XP would respond to a chatpad that was "awakened". For example, since it would communicate via USB, would XP simply assign an HID keyboard stack to it and make it usable without any extra drivers necessary (yeah, maybe not...)?

    After a quick 2-3 page Google on "chatpad driver" just now, it doesn't appear that much else in the way of an actual driver has surfaced yet.

    please, note that at the moment i'm not interested in carputers, and i'm not planning to write much here... but if openKeyboard project goes on, a ps2 interface could be studied

    I think somewhere in the post this is mentioned. It will work as soon as Microsoft releases the drivers for it. Yes the controller will work on the PC, but the PC still needs updating drivers to use the keyboard which attaches to the controller. Im sure that the chatpad worked the same way with the XBOX 360. It most likely works by the 360 updating itself to allow the keyboard to work. Hope someone can correct me if I am wrong.

    Yer that sounds about right, and i highly doubt that they will implement this, unless theres a high demand for it by the pc users

    im guessing their view is.... why would anyone with a full size keyboard (PC users), also need to use a smaller one.
