Chinese Remote Controller
« on: October 28, 2011, 12:38:25 PM »
Ok, so I bought this remote contrller off of ebay ;D , I checked and saw that there had been good feedback left ;). It arrived today and looks really good for the price, but if the buttons don't do anything its of no use to me.
I plugged it in to a USB port and the power light comes on, but thats the end of the good news! I don't want to put it down because I am pretty sure that its me who does't know how to connect it up to Mach3.
I have done everything it says in the instructions, which is simply to plug it in and then re-config the hotkeys, but no joy. I would expect that it needs to be aligned with something in Mach3, but what?
Can anyone throw some happiness my way please, I would love this thing to work. ???

Looks like it must just be emulating a keyboard so all you should have to do is go to Config menu then System HotKeys and then press the X++ on that page and when the box pops up press the key on the pendant for X+ and then do the same for the others. For E-Stop  etc I presume the keys must correspond to the hotkey assignment in Mach so should work fne if you use a standard screenset.

Personally I would never rely on it as a sole E-Stop but may be ok if used as an additional one.

Thanks, it looks like the unit is faulty, because windows is supposed to detect it automatically, but I have tried it on 3 PC's and no luck. I will have to send it back and try again, it's just my luck because it seems no-one else has had this problem.
