    yes the bottom is where the headset would plug in. So currently the keyboard isnt even detected by windows.. that means it will require a specialized driver and not just a standing HID driver. Microsoft will throw a driver out for it the question will remain "when".

    Looks like I you found me a new add-on to my carputer. Hopefully those drivers appear soon.

    BTW turbocad, your FX install looks awesome. I never even knew about plastic welding till I saw your thread.

    Anyways do you have any measurements for the keyboard? Thanks!

    The description for the product says

    "Chatting with friends and family on Xbox LIVEŽ and Windows-based PCs is easy using the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit. This device easily connects to any Xbox 360 controller and provides easy to use chat capabilities while maintaining gameplay functionality in one easy-to-hold device. The Messenger Kit includes a Chatpad and Xbox 360 Headset."

    i like where it says Windows based PC's, seems to me like they'd be working on it, no?

    haha, anyway, give it a couple weeks, someone is bound to make drivers for it

    oh, this thing is sweet. i can't believe it doesn't plug and play already.

    doesn't a lot of third party ps2 keyboard and controllers plug and play? you'd freaking think a microsoft made keyboard would.

    most ps2 controllers from what i've seen are straight USB, so of course it would work right away

    problem is, the chatpad isnt usb (apparently, at least not standard usb)

    hey, I brought home the tools to take it apart, but your link just saved me the trouble, Thanks

    man, it's just like I pictured, the whole keyboard is no more than 1/4" thick!!!

    this thing is built perfect for installing, it doesn't look to easy to hack though... may have to just wait for ms drivers, if there coming anyway it's probably not worth digging too deep into this, I mean the only thing I could do if I had to get this working all by myself, would be to try & pick up a lead off each key & then extend out to my own keyboard matrix controller board, def doable but a heck of a lot more hassle than I'd like to have to do, that's a last resort & it probably wouldn't be necissary after all

    I could see spending 10+ hours extending & rewiring, only to have a driver released the next day

    I'll wait & see... for now
