'Slave' hand on Infinity Ergodox not working
« on: Fri, 16 December 2016, 17:00:55 »
Hi all,

I posted this on Reddit, without any luck, so Iíll copy paste it here.

Iím having some issues with my newly built Ergodox infinity. At home, the keyboard works fine with a cable from the PC to one hand, then another cable from that hand to the other.

Bringing my board to work though, the keyboard only works when each half has a cable run from it to the PC. However, if I try to plug one hand into the other, whichever hand is not directly plugged into the PC will not work. Itíll power on and display the I:C logo on its display, but I canít switch layers or type anything.

Is it some sort of driver issue? Iíve tried switching which hand is plugged into the computer, but I get the same results, so I know each hand is individually working, so Iím a bit baffled. Any wisdom would be appreciated.

Are you using a USB port on the front of the case at work?  These are sometimes underpowered, the original ergodox was power hungry and adding screens for the infinity can't have helped.  If you haven't already try it in a USB2 port (not a blue USB3) on the back of the computer.
