This one looks very nice! Good choice, hope it works with the SX-1.
I'm more lucky with older USB keyboards. They need to talk the PS/2 protocol or you need to buy a (expensive) active USB to PS/2 converter. But, you have to test it. None of my modern USB keyboards work with the Zemmix Neo or the SX-1. Even some older PS/2 keyboards (those that need to much ampere) work proper. For example a Model M from 1991 does not work, but a Cherry USB from 2001 do. No need for that cheap USB-PS/2 converter, they are useless. You will need a active one. I bought this model, which made me happy.

Bumping on the subject, I'm currently looking for a wireless keyboard that I could connect to my Zemmix Neo.

Has any of you guys managed to do this ? If yes, how did you do that (USB or PS2 keyboard, adpater... ?).

I've ordered a Logitech wireless PS2 keyboard, not sure yet if that will work. I also looked for Startech PS22USB adapters mentionned by Grauw in his first post, but they seem totally unavailable today.

I do not care too much about key ghosting or latency (I'm using joysticks for games), but that's a keyboard I'd like to use in my living room from the sofa (2 meters away from the OCM), and cables have a hard time with my dogs running in the way and getting their legs into it Smile
