USB keyboard, Num Lock issue

USB keyboard, Num Lock issue
I´ve purchased a USB keyboard to my HDX-1000. I bought a mini-keyboard, a keyboard without the seperate num pad. But the num pad is built into the main section of the keyboard, like on most laptop-keyboards. When I plug it in num lock automatically is set to on-state, this causes the intergrated numpad to be active. How do I turn numlock off, because it can´t be turned off by the button on the keyboard? Its a real issue because when num lock is active i can´t use nearly the entire right half of the keyboard. Please help.

PS I don´t know if this is the right place for this thread, but I didn´t find a better place for it.

RE: USB keyboard, Num Lock issue
Sorry, I can only offer poor theories.

If you have a normal USB keyabord you could try capture what keycode is pressed for Numlock on that one? But perhaps it's not even mapped?
Although there is a CAPS/NUM key on the remote control I doubt it's the same as on the USB keyboard.

Is it possible to attach this mini-keyboard to a normal PC and try to re-program it from there somehow?

Have you tried contacting the keyboard manufacturer for advice?

RE: USB keyboard, Num Lock issue
I think, but am not 100% sure, but i think this could be an issue of compatability with your keyboard and the NMT.

I have just tried 3 different USB keyboards in my HDX-900, and all operate default with NUM LOCK off (and the NUM LOCK key does NOT respond to presses)

I would ask if you would try another USB keyboard and see if the behaviour of that keyboard is the same (ie, NUM LOCK defaults to ON) if they do not, i would think that it was simply an issue with compatability between that keyboard and your NMT unit.

Sorry i couldnt give more positive help.

RE: USB keyboard, Num Lock issue
I say it's the keyboard, not the NMT

There must be a num lock button. Look for it, probably an Fn key. If you find it, press Fn and that button and it should work

hope that helps Smile

RE: USB keyboard, Num Lock issue
Ok, thas guys for the response. I tried with the minikeyboard and my keyboard to my computer, just to see if it is incompability issues. Same problem. But I found out that the minikeyboard remembers the num lock state even when disconnected. So what I did to solve this was to connect the minikb to my computer, set num lock to off, and then connect it back to the HDX. Now it works! Smile

Thanks everyone!
