request: add support for Trackballs that work in XBMC4BOX
« on: October 09, 2011, 04:19:50 PM »
Hello-

I have been desperately trying to find a functional trackball for my cabinet but am running into issues.  I have two different trackballs working perfectly fine in XBMC4XBOX but neither work in FB.  I'm including the USB info with hopes support can be added.
This first one is a pretty nice solution for around $20 for the trackball + PS2-> USB adaptor

PS2toUSB Adapter:
  Product ID:   0x0020
  Vendor ID:   0x0e8f
  Version:    2.80
  Speed:   Up to 1.5 Mb/sec
  Manufacturer:   Green Asia Corp
  Location ID:   0xfa140000
  Current Available (mA):   500
  Current Required (mA):   500

This second one is a trackball i've had in a cabinet since I had a Motorola StarMax 3000 Mac clone powering it (looong time ago).  I don't many other folks will use this kind of setup but I'd love to not have to tear my CP apart to us FB on xBox1.

iMate, USB To ADB Adaptor:

  Location ID:   0xfa140000

Please let me know if I can provide any additional info or if there is anything else I can do to help.

Thanks in advance
