Belkin Media Pilot Keyboard and Mouse


I recommend that the keyboard base is a complete stable surface, otherwise you may have a hard time charging the removable keyboard.

Hardware

Hardware ID: USB\VID_050D&PID_0834

Belkin MediaPilot Keyboard - Model: F8E838-KBD
Belkin MediaPilot Keyboard (Base) - Model F8E838-REX

Drivers:


Windows 8 - 64 Bits

When you plug it on Win8-64bits it gets recognized as the standard keyboard and mouse.


 The MediaPilot Control Center "AV Programmer" seems to work. The MediaPilot Control Center "AV Programmer" works to program the remote (infrared) functions of the device, so you can control the TV, DVD, CD, VCR, etc.

 The MediaPilot Control Center "PC Programmer",to configure a different behavior on the buttons for Windows ,  does not work.

Windows 7 - 64 Bits

Working Driver: Generic MS Driver on Windows and Belkin Media Pilot Driver.

On Windows 7 - 64 bits the keyboard get recognized with the generic Windows Drivers. It works ok. Some buttons like "Search", "Desktop", "Print", "My Music" do not work. The other (My PC, Volume, Mute...) works.
 The MediaPilot Control Center "AV Programmer" works to program the remote (infrared) functions of the device, so you can control the TV, DVD, CD, VCR, etc. On Windows 7 seems to be running fine.

 The MediaPilot Control Center "PC Progammer" to configure a different behavior on the buttons for Windows ...uhm... is not working.
