    this is what im talking about

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x...er/default.htm

    again i have one, it works really well, once installed you can use a few different programs to key button presses to whatever you want, or use windows joystick config, whatever you want

    again i dont know if the keyboard would work with it, but im pretty sure someone will make a driver for it sooner or later

    a key factor in determining the usability of this unit is to see how windows recognises it when the 360 wireless controller is plugged into a computer... if it shows as an HID device it means it would be easy to hack the mini plug off and put a usb interface in its place.

    somehow I think there may be a better shot with a direct wired usb controller over wireless, I'm not concerned about it being wireless at all, for a permanent install wired is better than wireless in some ways....

    I'll try to get one today maybe..., & yeah, it's sexy, there has to be a way to use this...

    there will be, people just havent found how to use it yet, the drivers microsoft offers dont work with the chatpad, the microphone works right away, but the chatpad isnt recognized by windows at all

    but yeah, from what i read the chatpad doesnt work with either the wired or wireless yet

    but now that you mention it, wired would probably be less annoying as you dont have to charge it..

    ok, I bought a wired controller (usb), plugged it in, hardware wizard connected to microsofts website, downloaded a dll, boom, controller installed, no problem, no response from the keyboard. doesn't even light up(the controller didn't either, till driver installed)

    unplug the keyboard from controller & replug, it then sees an audio interface (headset?) & installs a driver for that, installed & ready to use, no problem, but... the keyboard is still nothing...

    it doesn't see the keyboard seperatley at all, not as an unknown device or anything... sooo, now what? I don't know much about what it would take to do something with this, I'm more hardware modder than software, I'll take this apart tommorow & see what it looks like naked... I want to use this thing bad enough that I would even consider having to map the keys thru software if I could figure out a way to interface, maybe it can be directly connected to a keyboard module, maybe there are varing resistances with button presses.... maybe I could hack something,

    I want to use this keyboard bad enough that I would even consider rebuilding the guts, using the existing microswitches or even replacing with my own individual microswitches for each key, & running them to a keyboard controller, but that would be a totally different direction than just a software interface, which I have no idea how to aproach.

    sooo, anyone have any ideas?

    it does show as a hid, but then installs joypad software for the controller, nothing else shows up at all...
