Not sure whether I should try any Magic commands (they don't seem to work, as the COMMAND_ENABLED is commented out in the Makefile).

// plugging the Planck EZ
usb_state: 20
usb_state: 40
usb_state: 50
usb_state: 51
host.Task: 7159
usb_state: 90
speed: full
// pressing the keys do not result in any output

// unplugging
usb_state: 12

// plugging the Kinesis Advantage2
usb_state: 20
usb_state: 40
usb_state: 50
usb_state: 51
host.Task: 3583
usb_state: 90
speed: full
input 1: 00 00 1D 00 00 00 00 00

Thanks for testing.

hmm, the converter seems to initialize and recogize the keyboard properly,  I can't see why it doesn't register any key unfortunately :(

Did you try the latest firmware on the converter yet? You can get it from Keyboard Editor.
http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?usb_usb

With the latest firmware console shows version string like below when it starts up.

Code: [Select]
TMK:8449ad38/LUFA


Planck EZ uses STM32F3 mcu and QMK/Chibios firmware and I don't own and haven't tried any similar keyboard like that so far. I'm missing something imporant to be supported in the converter firmware, perhaps.
Then, I'll have to find keyboard with similar mcu and test QMK/Chibios on it with the converter when I get time.

I thought that I built the last version from source, but it was a couple of weeks out of date. Here's the output:

Code: [Select]
TMK:8449ad38/LUFA

usb_state: 12
usb_state: 20
usb_state: 40
usb_state: 50
usb_state: 51
host.Task: 7163
usb_state: 90
speed: full

USB configured.

Keyboard start.

Still doesn't work though. Will try to help if there's anything else I could do.

Hi hasu, I'm trying out a new keyboard (Asus Strix Tactic Pro) that has macro buttons that are configurable via the software. The keyboard report for all of the macro keys as default are:

input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

but if I bind them to a bind-able key it will report that keycode correctly.

Can I set these blank keys to something else? I'm not sure how I would set it up via keymap_common.h. Could I make them F13-24 or something? The keyboard software won't let me bind them to F13-24

The converter can handle key if you see vlaue other than '00' in 'input 1' line when it is depressed.
The value is exact HID usage and corespond to index of array in keymap_common.h. You can change KEYMAP_ALL() macro as you want to use it in keymap.c

Good to know. Just a few moments ago I figured out how to trick the software to accepting all the keycodes  :p

I set KC_HENK (89) on my JIS layout keyboard as Space (2C) and I noticed I've been missing spaces, but I don't know if its from the keyboard or the converter

Code: [Select]
input 1:  00 00 17 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 17 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 00 00 17 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 0C 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 0C 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 0C 00 00 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

I had hid_listen up while I was typing and this was supposed to be t(space)i but my KC_HENK (89) Space key just showed up as 00

What is your "JIS layout keyboard" exactly? manufacturer, model name  and pic of the key would be kind of useful.
And your keymap would be uselful to debug. Share your keymap editor URL or keymap source.


Can you get space correctly on computer when the key is pressed solely?
And the missing space happens only when the key is typed with other keys like 't(space)i'?

Can you get space correctly on computer when the key is pressed solely?
And the missing space happens only when the key is typed with other keys like 't(space)i'?

Code: [Select]
input 1:  00 00 8A 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 8A 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 2C 00 00 00 00 00
input 1:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
state:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
keyboard_report: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

This is what it normally looks like
Missing space does happen when typed with other keys. I can be typing normally and the space just doesn't come out, even though I'm 100% positive I pressed it
Space as Space works fine through the converter
Update: I remapped HENK to LCTRL, typed "a," held the new CTRL and pressed "a" twice. The result was: Select all, typed "a." LCTRL was released even though I was holding it. Same thing happened when remapping MHEN to LCTRL. It did not happen when I binded Space to LCTRL. Hmm.
Update 2: I've now tried it with the bottom row set as LCTRL. Only MHEN, HENK, and KANA result in: Select all, type "a".

Re: USB to USB keyboard converter

Thanks for the pic, debug log and descriptors.

Hmm, it sounds to me like keyboard firmware bug or intentional design at this point.
Your keymap code looks good but I didn't compile it to test.

Download firmware from link below and try it. You will get 'b' when the Henkan(変換) key is depressed.
Let me know whether you miss 'b' during typing.

I tested this firmware with HHKB pro JP which is my only JIS keyboard in hand, and I got 'tbi' every time when I type t, Henkan and i keys. Converter firmware seems to work for Henkan key correctly.

Manufacturer of the keyboard may have new keyboard firmware to fix bugs, check their support web pages.

Thanks, I'll try it out. Check out my edit to the post above

Update: It happens with your firmware as well. At first, I was just doing B(Henkan), Space and it seems normal. But as soon as I started typing the string "asdfb" in succession, b failed and I made sure that each press was depressed all the way. It also appeared again on the hid_listen. It might be a keyboard firmware bug

Update 2: I can confirm that it is the keyboard's firmware. I connected it without the converter and tried to record macros on my Logitech mouse's software and confirmed that Muhenkan, Henkan, and Katakana/Hiragana keys when held release after pressing any other key. I will try to contact the manufacturer. Thanks

Hi, I just got my USB to USB converter and I can't seem to talk to it. Here's what happens when I run dfu-programmer in debug mode. This is on my Lenovo 430s running Fedora 28 Linux. I notice that dfu-programmer hasthe proper chip_id and vendor_id. What can I do next? Thanks.

as first post says, you can use commands like below to program converter.

Code: [Select]
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 erase --force
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 flash <your_firmware.hex>
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 reset

Also refer to this wiki entry.
https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard/wiki#flash-firmware


With the command  'dfu-programmer atmega32u4 read --debug 9' I also get same error message. I think ATmega32u4 bootloader doesn't support the 'read' command probably, and I don't use the command. Note that you don't need the command to program the converter. You can get more detailed info with '--debug 999', though.

A keyboard that I previously thought didn't work with the converter actually works. But only when it's connected to a hub, but not when connected directly for some reason. DSI Left Handed Keyboard

« Reply #514 on: Fri, 16 August 2019, 17:24:21 »
as first post says, you can use commands like below to program converter.

Code: [Select]
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 erase --force
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 flash <your_firmware.hex>
$ dfu-programmer atmega32u4 reset

OK, it looks like "sudo" was the key. As root, I'm able to do it. Thanks!

Now I have two questions:
  • The keyboard editor at http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?usb_usb can only perform conversions, correct? It's not capable of macro programming, right?
  • What do I do if I want to remap keys that are not shown on the editor page? For example, I have a keyboard with a "Back" and "Fwd" and other keys on the left, and I don't know what keycodes they're sending, but I'd like to map them to something useful. Is that possible?


Thanks!

My Koolertron/Smartyao SMKD72 keyboard/numpad (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B076LYKPX4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) isn't working with the converter, but it works without the converter on a PS4 where it only accepts 6KRO.

Thanks for reporting.
According to its descriptor it looks normal keyboard(6KRO) and the converter should support it.
There may be a glitch somewehre in current converter firmware.

Aren't there something interesting in hid_listen log when connecting it with or without hub ?
How did you connect the hub, between converter and keyboard or between computer and covnerter?


A keyboard that I previously thought didn't work with the converter actually works. But only when it's connected to a hub, but not when connected directly for some reason. DSI Left Handed Keyboard

Turns out my copy of the repository is outdated, it works connected straight to the converter with the latest firmware.
But I was able to make it even work on my older firmware by disconnecting and reconnecting the DSI keyboard to the converter after it was connected. Sorry about that! Updating now

Any clues to why my Koolertron isn't working?

Great.
I changed source code repo drastically a few months ago, espeically for USB_Host_Shield_2.0 submodule. You may have to remove the submodule and reinit carefully by hand to update it, or just clone repo from scratch and init the submodule. Sorry for incovenience.

You can get firmware built from the semi-latest source with fixes from Keymap Editor. Try it first when you are in trouble with the converter.

If you didn't try firmware download from Keymap Editor yet, test it with the Koolertron.

Hmm, that log looks to me normal for converter startup.

I think it is still worth trying firmware downloaded from Keyboard Editor.

I get the exact same hid_listen from Keymap Editor. I have to press a key really fast to get a response from hid_listen and it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
input 1: 00 00 62 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 12 00

Probably not useful, but this is hid_listen when connected to soarer's converter
Code: [Select]

The converter seems to fail to request the keyboard to use 6KRO instead of 16KRO as your this previous post.
But I can't find any concrete clue on this at the moment.

Re: USB to USB keyboard converter
« Reply #524 on: Fri, 06 September 2019, 01:09:19 »
Forgive me if this has been covered, I can't find any solutions elsewhere.

I bought one of these https://amzn.to/2zSpdF5 and a HASU USB > USB Converter, and have been learning basic re-mapping via the TMK Keymap Editor GUI, loading the hex file with FLIP - loving it!

BUT notice the 4x silver buttons to the left of that keyboard?  The bottom two send "b" and "m" which are easily re-mapped using the editor, but the top two are "programmable" keys.  The keyboard doesn't require any software for this macro function - the M1 key for example can be programmed by pressing Fn + M1 to start recording, then a key (or combination), then Fn + M1 to stop recording.

That functionality works with the keyboard plugged directly into PC, but as soon as I put the HASU in between, those keys are completely dead.  I've tried re-recording the macro with simple ASCII keys.

I confirmed that the keyboard doesn't lose the macro when unplugged (to put the HASU in) by leaving it unplugged for over an hour, once plugged back into the PC it remembers what key was recorded.

I tried using the The HID Listen Program debug console (with the keyboard plugged into the HASU) to see what HASU is receiving when I press the M1 key - nothing at all for the M1 key in the log, all others work.

I found some comments about EXTRAKEY_ENABLE in other forums - not sure if that's related, and I'm also not compiling my own so that's a big leap away from where I'm at.

Any clues?

Hi,
First, I believe EXTRAKEY_ENABLE is not related.
If you don't see anything on hid_listen when pressing M1, the keyboard may use its own unusual method for the key.

Can you sheare USB descriptors of the keyboard?

Re: USB to USB keyboard converter
« Reply #526 on: Fri, 13 September 2019, 10:36:38 »
Hello.

 I am working on an exhibit that needs to have a wireless keyboard for users/an employee to enter names/scores, as well as another keyboard for maintenance/troubleshooting. The user keyboard needs to only have the letter/number keys and backspace/space/enter enabled, and other keys like the windows key/ctrl/alt/media keys/etc... and key combinations disabled.

 The wireless keyboard that is currently picked is https://www.amazon.ca/IOGEAR-GKB635W-Wireless-Smart-Keyboard/dp/B07934KKTS . It also has trackball/scroll wheel built in, but disabling that isn't as important.

 Would the USB to USB converter plugged into the Keyboard dongle be expected to work in this case?

 Thank you.

Re: USB to USB keyboard converter
« Reply #527 on: Fri, 13 September 2019, 19:11:00 »
I think keyboard part works with the converter and you can disable the keys in keymap.

Hello.

 I am working on an exhibit that needs to have a wireless keyboard for users/an employee to enter names/scores, as well as another keyboard for maintenance/troubleshooting. The user keyboard needs to only have the letter/number keys and backspace/space/enter enabled, and other keys like the windows key/ctrl/alt/media keys/etc... and key combinations disabled.

 The wireless keyboard that is currently picked is https://www.amazon.ca/IOGEAR-GKB635W-Wireless-Smart-Keyboard/dp/B07934KKTS . It also has trackball/scroll wheel built in, but disabling that isn't as important.

 Would the USB to USB converter plugged into the Keyboard dongle be expected to work in this case?

 Thank you.

 Thanks for the reply. The keyboard shows up as both a keyboard and a mouse in the device manager, if it is plugged in through the USB-USB Converter, will it still show up like that? Or will the trackball not work?

question/issue issue im hoping someone can help me with. and i apologize beforehand, as im sure this has been asked/answered, but after 2 days of searching i gave up and decided to ask.

i have a windows workstation with an ikbc mf108 (108key ansi) and picked up one of your usb to usb convertors (didnt want to try dealing with making my own). what is the proper way to deal with the 4 media keys above numpad? should i include them in a keymap? ignore them and just use the standard ansi layout? i understand that i will most likely not be able to have the converter see them as per your first post, but im not getting any keypress passed through to the system when using it no matter what keymap i use. (all work fine when not using the adaptor though). they are sending in volume_up, volume_down, etc which should pass through the adaptor, but isnt.

if someone can point me in the right direction to figure this out, i would be extremely grateful!

tried both of these so far (everything else works exactly as inteded with the exception of those 4 keys):
const uint16_t PROGMEM keymaps[][MATRIX_ROWS][MATRIX_COLS] = {

Default frmware doesn't recognize any media key and doesn't pass through any key which not recognized.
Media keys usually are sent out of different endpoint from one for normal keys. You have to define custom parser code to interpret intput from the media key endpoint. The code is specific to the keyboard and you can know how the media key should be interpreted by reading USB HID report descriptor of it.

See this for how to get descriptor and search on the net.

I've tried using this keyboard  https://www.amazon.ca/IOGEAR-GKB635W-Wireless-Smart-Keyboard/dp/B07934KKTS with the USB converter, however it doesn't seem to work.

I updated the firmware from http://www.tmk-kbd.com/tmk_keyboard/editor/unimap/?usb_usb with Flip, and the converter itself shows up in the device manager. But no key strokes on the keyboard go through to the pc. It does work with other wired USB Keyboards we have.

JohnRMA, Thanks for the descriptor. I'll update the first post.

The keyboard seems to support only NKRO mode without boot mode(6KRO), it will always send keys in NKRO report that the converter can't recognize. This is the first time I have ever seen keyboard like that iirc.
I think it has problem with some of legacy BIOS and UEFI or it may use some unclear trick for those purpose.

Could you check whether it can work with UEFI/BIOS?

Thanks for the response. The keyboard works on the UEFI of my PC, but as you expected, it does not work in the BIOS of another, older PC. 
 I will look into getting a different keyboard. In your experience, most wireless keyboards do work?

Thanks for testing.
I'm surprised by the fact that there is keyboard that doesn't support boot mode in the market and the manufacturer decided on dropping backward compatibility for legacy systems. And modern UEFI supports NKRO keyboard natively. Really good to know.

I don't have any experience with wireless keyboards but user reported Logitech Unifying keyboard worked with the coverter once.

 Ok, we tested it with a Logitech K330 and K360 (both with unifying receiver) and they both worked fine. So we'll use one of them. Thanks for all your help.

Hasu, what do you use for the plastic casing around the converter? I'm interested in doing the same thing to a teensy.

I'm not sure about what you are asking but guessing you are talking about CAD software?
As first post says, the case was designed by Gouty not me, I didn't try it yet and know little. He used Autodesk Fusion 360 according to README. https://github.com/tmk/USB2USB_Converter/tree/master/3D%20Printed%20Case

I didn't try any plastic casing for the covnerter yet, except for heat shrink wrap.


.... Ah, wait ... You are referring the heat-shrink tube perhaps? If so I use transparent Sumitube A20C for this.
