Well, you can always use the slighty crude method and program:

<WIN>+<R>
D:\script.bat
<ENTER>

I bought this keyboard: Epson QX-10 keyboard.
I think it needs to be converted. (https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?t=21416)
Can I get any external converter for this?

I believe that the Epson's have their own protocol that isn't supported by Soarer's. Snacksthecat on deskthority figured out the epson protocol, but the board itself may only support 1KRO, which is pretty much unusable.


Best bet is probably to trace the matrix, wire the rows and columns to a teensy 2.0, and use QMK to make firmware for it. I have a QX503A and that's what I'm planning on doing with mine.

Hi, do you think I could use this microcontroller? I don't want to wait possibly months for shipping from China or pay $25+ to get it in a week or so.

I'm looking to convert a terminal Model M to USB. Thanks!
