Hi Guys

I gotta CDTV Mouse & Keyboard on its way, is it possible to connect these to the CD32. I got one of those Retrogate AUX adapters, would I still need to use that?

What connecter is on the mouse, is it the same as the Tank mouse and do I just plug it controller port 2?

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks
B

CDTVmouse connector is small mini din
the CD32 uses a standard Amigamouse
and to use pcKeyb in the CD32 you need Lyra 3 Keyboard Adapter Cable (A2000/A3000/A4000/CD32)

CDTVkeyb will not work, dident see you wanted to use cdtvkeyb in the cd32 at first

Don't think the k/board will not work with the lyra its only for PS/2 isn't it ? whereas the CDTV has one of the strange mini 5 pin din connections

I got a keyboard adapter that lets you connect a keyboard to the aux port

What if I do a bit of modding to the plugs haha

Hi, can you help me a little? I've bought a Lyra 3 adapter recently, but don't know how to use it. When I switch on my cd32, the three leds (capslock/numlock/scrollock) blink once, but after the keyboard doesn't work. I tried to enter configuration mode by pressing left Shift and Pause, but it does nothing. :(
