How long for these to get to USA? Do you have anyone shipping from USA?

Okay, I bought one of these and I can't get it to talk to Mach....it's powered up and the ready led is on steady so all is good there.  However, in the Mach pokeys config screen, I don't have the option to check the "use cnc keys with led's" box that the pokeys help me says is supposed to be there. What am I doing wrong?

You should use the PoKeys configuration software to enable mapping of kbd48CNC to matrix keyboard. Then, the settings in Mach would be the same as if there was a matrix keyboard connected to the PoKeys board.

That is the version of Mach that I am using...with the pokeys 10.6.4 plugin and still don't have this thing working.. I set up the Mach config screen for "use matrix keyboard" with 6 columns, 8 rows and assigned the proper pins etc.....did the same in the pokeys software but I am missing something somewhere. If I go to the pokeys diagnostic screen in Mach, I can see leds blinking like crazy as if I am pushing buttons but......By the way, I am using the keypad with a pokeys 56U if that matters

with the pokeys 10.6.4 plugin is only for the Old style original PK USB  (the 55T).

the CNC keyboard is on an I2C bus, and that can only be set on the New PKU or PKE, Brian is the one doing the new PK plugin, so you will need to download it
(it is in Beta by the way), and as far as I am currently aware is still being worked on due to some changes in the way the PK DLL worked. So, Brian is having to redo some stuff in it again.............

I recommend, you post on the Yahoo Group, and ask Brian there directly what the status of the new plugin is.
