No communication with keyboard
I'm using an Xbox One-S. The charging/sync cable I'm using is the one provided by Iogear with the package. It works fine as the controller works with or without the batteries. I have no external hardware connected to my console. Something to mention...it's a minor but telltale sign: when I have the keyboard plugged into the Keymander, the LED button that toggles the backlight colors is inoperative. Also the key lock indicators (num lock/caps lock....) do not illuminate. When I have it plugged directly to my laptop, they work. Power issue, perhaps...?
That said, when I have the Keymander connected to both my laptop and my console, it works... only
if I'm also running the Keymander software on my laptop with the "Game Mode" tab engaged.
I do want to try an additional power source. Would connecting a USB between the Keymanders power port and the wall charger I use for my tablet suffice? The last thing I want to do is use an improper power source and fry my emulator lol
lastly, the controller is a Microsoft Xbox controller, not an off-brand.
