Do you choose "Startup IRK On"?

I think my problem isn't about the keyboard, because I don't connect SL-6000L to the keyboard or even extend/open that keyboard.

I only install the driver, set it to SL5600/SLC7xx, and click "On" (not Startup IRK ON), then I get the error message "Couldn't open IrDA serial Port. Either something else is using the...."

The only way to make the driver work is "Startup IRK On" and reboot. Is this the correct way I should do?

My settings are Start IRK Off.

However, I remind having this message once, but I don't think I did anything except switching to IRK Off. Since then, I have no problem. I haven't seen again this message.

I guess I find the answer?
    My previous procedure:
  1. Turn off beam receive (ie. set to manual).
  2. Select IRK as the input method
  3. Configure IRK via it's settings panel
  4. Turn on IRK from it's control panel
And I get "Couldn't open IrDA serial Port. Either something else is using the...."
    My current procedure:
  1. Turn off beam receive (ie. set to manual).
  2. Select IRK as the input method
  3. Configure IRK via it's settings panel
  4. Turn off IRK from it's control panel
  5. Turn on IRK from it's control panel
Once I turn it off at first, then everything goes fine. laugh.gif

Has anyone tried out the Thinkoutside IR keyboard with the Zaurus SL 6000? I always thought Thinkoutside made the Stowaway that Targus marketed. But on the Thinkoutside website, the Zaurus isn't listed as a device supported. Is there a driver that might work with the Thinkoutside keyboard?

Also, would an IR keyboard drain a lot of battery from the Zaurus?

Thanks in advance.

With the iRiver USB Cable, I was able to get my zippy mini-usb keyboard (EL-610) working with my SL-6000l. Just plugged it in and it worked. The backlight on the keyboard even worked (though I turned it off to save battery on the Z).

A bit large for a portable solution but cheap enough to stash one at work and another at home.

On this subject...

I have the iRiver connector and a USB keyboard hooked up, and I am among the legion of folks who can't get the keymap right. Since the USB hosting is one of the big draws for this thing, remapping the keys is becoming Very Important. Any ideas you may have would be appreciated! Is load/show/dumpkeys the "approved solution"?

I have tried this:

GrandTec Virtually Indestructable Keyboard (VIK)

It seemed perfect, but the keys require very accurate precision--hitting 1/2 off or on the corner won't cut it. With practice, I'm down to 2-3 errors per sentence...but it is still too much of a hassle.

Bob: I like your option, but I'm looking for something smaller, maybe I'll have to settle. It would fit in my bookbag, anyway. What are the overall dimensions and what is the action like, a laptop keyboard?

I was having the teouble with the keymaps until I flashed my SL-6000L with the 1.12 ROM from Sharp. Now I'm able to use any USB keyboard without any trouble. The only issue I have now is that the ESC key doesn't seem to work in console.

Here is a nice keyboard that I purchased off of Ebay for just under $27 w/shipping:

PSK-3100U

It's about 8 3/4" x 4 1/8" and about 1/2 " at its thickest. My 6000 recognized it instantly when I plugged it into the usb port. Interestingly enough, QT has already mapped some of the function keys to various actions (various PIMs, rotation, start voice recording, etc).

I think Think Outside Stowaway Wireless IR Keyboard is same product as PalmOne's Palm Wireless Keyboard.
You can download the driver from Craig's web site:
http://angela1.data-uncertain.co.uk/~zauru...ex.php#CONTENTS
I tried to add support for that keyboard to Craig's IRK 0.11:

(Remove "bin" extention before installation.)

With USB keyboards like the zippy and the psk, how would you set this system up? Do you prop the Z with something behind it? Would you be able to use it on your lap? What are the logistics of having two separate items as opposed to the IR keyboards that attach to the Z (or vice versa)?

I set my Z on the side behind the keyboard on a table and type like that. Would be a bit nicer to have it at a slight angle for easier viewing.

I am at work now but the zippy measurements should be on the NewEgg product info page. It is a small keyboard but works well. I find that I have to adjust myself to it but I use it about half the time for my desktop (I pull the USB when I take it on the road.)

Again not the most compact solution but i had it already and it works well.
