A4000 - PS/2 Keyboard interface
 
Ok, anyone know how to attach a PS/2 keyboard to an A4000? I know the pins match, but does it work proper like??? Thinking about what the Amiga keys would match to...

Any wiring diags or interfaces in existence?

It won't work without an adapter. There are plans on eBay to create one, or you can buy one from any Amiga online store. Amiga keys are mapped to Windows keys.

I dont have a problem buying one, but I find it odd that the descriptions for keyboard adaptors are suspiciously light on detail, and do not state whether a) they work on A4000 b)map keys. Amigakit has two, for example, with descriptions that are suspiciously light on details.

Will pm and see what says.

None of the keyboard adapters I saw on Amigakit will work with the A4000.

These will work:

Will an external Lyra interface work on a CD32? Can anyone confirm this? I just won an auction for a used CD32 and I would really like to use a PS2 keyboard with it :)

It will work with the CD32 too.

better find a real A4000 keyboard... have tried in the past on my A1200T to use pc keyboards, they worked fine through adaptors, but the feeling is lame...
