    not that i know of, it can handle up to 16 joysticks (would be good it you had to remap the inputs) here is the site, it works well for me, and the x-xbox drivers.

    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...
    isnt that what i'd said? +_+

    anyway, i'd checked, as i thought i'd try to help you out like you've helped gimme different idea's for when im ready to do my install, but yeah, people are working on drivers for it, but nothing yet

    from the XBOX forum

    "Chatting with friends and family on Xbox LIVEŽ and Windows-based PCs is easy using the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit."

    Sounds like they're marketing it to PC users to me.

    I do, however, remember reading a review somewhere where they stated that PC functionality wasn't finished yet. It's probably a driver thing."

    the keyboard does or the joystick does? if you installed the joystick then later plugged the keyboard into the joypad and two sets of drivers installed then the keypad would be usable. If no driver installs when u plug the keypad into the controller and the keyboard doesnt work in windows then its likely microsoft released the keypad too early and will later release a driver for it. They're notorious for behing behind on gettin xbox peripherals to work on a pc. The first set of wired controllers didnt work with windows at all.. second batch were detected in windows but microsoft took months to release the drivers to make them usable. I think its safe to say at some point the keypads will work in wondows just dont expect it to happen sooner rather than later.

    yeah, I know you said that, but I just had to see for myself too

    so I wonder how new this keyboard is, I mean if it just came out then maybe drivers are right around the corner, but if it's been out for a while now & still no drivers then it might take awhile....

    gonna poke around some more today to see what I can find & also open it up

    sonic, it installed one driver for the joypad, another when the keyboard plugged in, but what it installed when the keyboard plugged in was for the headset... I guess the keyboard also has a headset module as it's a pass thru for it?

    I just called microsoft... techs answer is keep checking, he thinks they'll have something within a few weeks, maybe I won't have to reinvent the wheel afterall they gotta get this for the pc eventually I guess, I'm starting to plan how I want this built into my console, motorized ejecting sounds about right maybe
