    how do i wire up Grahill 60A encoder

    Just got the Grahill 60a,

    It has a flying tail with 8 wires one of them black.
    anyone know how i can wire this up?

    i have a minikey usb and an optical mouse with 6 buttons i can butcher

    Does it simply switch or supply a variation of resitances?

    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks

    It's not that easy. Here's the datasheet of it. I doubt you'll find any keyboard / mouse that'll be able to handle its signals.

    But if you're looking for something that's ready to go, have a peek at the ccStick iD, which is built upon the 60A:

    Well, there's not much going on in the thread because it's just hardware. You plug it in and it works. There's another thread about the software (MWI).

    You can order the PCB only if you like. The package / pricelist is yet another thread in the forum.

    Glad to hear.
    The kit comes with the PCB included but I guess you'd like a MWI Gold license as well (since the ccStick isn't supported in the free version).

    To order, please send a mail to: order at ccStick dot com

    Nice new ccStick site Zorro! I'm just about ready to buy one and start playing with it but I'm not exactly sure how the software is working. I watched the demos on your site and it looks like when you turn the knob it pops up the menu and then you have to scroll through things. Is there any way to have the center click be mode (like most car stereos now) where it cycles through menu options. Then have the directional joystick assigned to other things. As you click the mode button (it could be a separate button) it would cycle through control options.

    Ex.
    Mode 1 - Audio Playback
    Turn knob left/rt - volume down/up
    joystick up - play/pause
    joy down - stop
    joy left - previous
    joy right - next

    Mode 2 - Navigation
    knob left/rt - navigation zoom out/in
    joy up, down, left, right - up, down, left and right on map

    Mode 3 - Menu Navigation
    knob left/rt - previous/next item in menu
    joy left/rt - previous/next page in menu
    joy up/down - setting on/off

    This way, depending on whatever mode you were in I wouldn't have to look at the screen to see what was going on? I'd like to be able to hit left and right to change songs and then turn the knob for volume. Does the software do this and am just missing it because I don't have it to play around with?

    Thanks

    You can download the standard version (MWIPro) and try it out with the mouse wheel or PowerMate.

    As for the modes: There's one default mode (this is when the MWI software is idle) where you can do the menu with the wheel.
    With the ccStick you can assign mode keys for alternate wheel control, volume, mouse mode, text input.
    The joystick has no modes but it turned out if you do this config:
    joy left/right - cursor left / right
    joy up/down - tab/backtab
    You can control almost everything.

    I'd suggest you play around a bit with a wheel mouse then you easily can imagine what it's like to use it with a ccStick.
