DesktopWeb FormText   waiting for PC (MCE) chat pad driversSun, 14 Oct 2007 02:02:28 GMT # 

the 360 chad pad works great for text input on the 360 ... and it would make a great text input device for media center, which sorely needs better text input (i.e. a fly out soft keyboard like the 360s would help). the problem is the PC driver does not support the chat pad, even after the update a couple weeks ago [didn't MS say that all 360 accessories would be supported on the PC?]. if the PC driver would pass the chat pad key presses through XInput, then we could write an MCE background add-in (e.g. /mceXInput) to use the chat pad with MCE. this would make the MCEBrowser plugin alot more interesting to me.
