would look cool but alx5692 is right, but you never know someone might want to do it,
is it possible to port scripts like this onto the xbox easily ? just wanted to know as your the expert!

it works, i'm using one.

really?! sorry, but just before i go out and buy a usb keyboard, are you saying they definitely work with xmbc?
(if you're wondering why, it's cos i realised you could write a python script that executed input (using the 'exec' command and local namespace) and - hey presto - you'd have a test python interpreter on xbmc to try out code! )

my usb-keyboard dont work in xbmc 16-05-2004 cvs, but works in avalaunch, evox and other prog. so its no support in the xbmc what i can see (maybee it will be in the future)
so "windragz" what cvs are you using if you can get it to work??
- windragz - 2004-05-17 05:05
it's a modified version of apr 28 cvs. there is an example in xdk how to add kb support to your code. i just followed that example. i just use that code (copy and paste).
the keyboard is supported by the xbox kernel as any other device, such gamepad or remote.

coo this does look interesting... not that i use msn, but it sounds useful and a definate boastworthy feature for xbmc.
if only we had a control for nokia style predictive text,typing a msg by remote would be as quick as a sms.
have you posted your patch to the devs forum? sounds like it would be easy to add. i'd buy a keyboard if xbmc supported it
