    What exactly isn't working?

    Is it not typing any letters if you hit "SET"?

    Is it not running the appropriate command (x for thru, etc)?

    Is it not doing anything? Does it work on the computer itself?

    Hi,

    the keyboard works. I can type on it. Just none of the commands that are typed on the keys are working.

    Thanks

    On the bottom right of the screen near the encoder area, it should say either "ABC" or "MAP."

    If it says "ABC," it is just typing letters. You want it to say "MAP" by pressing the "Pause/Break" key on the keyboard. This toggles back and forth between ABC and MAP.

    Page 385 of the current manual (can be accessed in Hog3PC by pressing the HELP button on the top right screen)

    You can use an external keyboard to operate many of the Wholehog OS's functions. This is especially useful if you are using the Hog 3PC or Rack Mount Unit versions of the console.

    You can toggle keyboard shortcuts on and off using the Pause or Break key on the computer keyboard. When shortcuts are enabled (known as map mode), the computer keyboard is mapped to the shortcuts; when disabled, text entry via the computer keyboard is possible. The current status is shown in the Command Line Toolbar; see Figure*35.1, “Keyboard Status in the Command Line Toolbar”. Whenever possible, Wholehog OS intelligently disables the keyboard shortcuts when text entry is expected (after
    pressing Setor double clicking in a cell). When the text entry session is completed, the shortcuts are automatically re-enabled.

    By default, shortcuts are disabled when you start a show. When shortcuts are disabled, only the shortcut mapped to the Set key remains functional to allow quick labeling from the external keyboard.

    No worries...that's why we're all here. We've been in the same situation.
