Brightsign 600 USB keyboard question

posted this on April 10, 2009, 7:54 PM

I've sent two emails to the Roku support center, and after two weeks, haven't heard a response, so I'll try this here.

I'm trying to test a script I wrote on the Brightsign, but I can't get any peripherals to work (i.e. the USB keyboard or mouse). I've tried three different brands of keyboards/mice, updated the software, even wiped the card and downloaded the sample script to see if I could get it to work, but nothing. I know the USB devices are getting power - the light is on in the mouse, for example - but I can't get it to communicate with the Brightsign. Any suggestions? Is it the actual unit, or a software issue? Are there particular brands I should be avoiding? Thanks so much!

Can you send me the sample script you are trying to use? <!-- e --><a href=""></a><!-- e -->

I've tested several brands with the units. I originally came across some microsoft mice that wouldn't work consistently with early firmware versions, but no keyboards that wouldn't work.

I'm personally using logitech, and belkin mice with the units I use for testing. If it's a wireless mouse, you may need a powered USB hub with it.
