I've opened a trouble report with Logitech. This is my first use of a Logitech wireless keyboard. Maybe I'm asking too much of it. I have a wireless controller for my recording studio DAW but it is an older device (made for XP/Vista originally) and probably runs on a different frequency. This unit, a Frontier "Tranzport", has no problems.
EDIT/UPDATE: After working with the keyboard, I have found that it is a Bluetooth type connection and not just a straight RF connection. This may have something to do with the response problems. The Logitech support had me do a couple of troubleshooting steps, like "un-pairing" and "re-pairing", different batteries, etc.
Do you know fireberd I think they go out of their way to make things so incredibly convoluted - I mean what om earth is wrong with a straight 2.4Ghz RF connection.
I know this frequency is prone to interference from other sources so why not make it the 5.8Ghz to avoid that like they did with your average home cordless phones because of the RF interference the 2.4Ghz that was caused from microwave ovens for example.
Anyway rant over I am glad it's sorted for you
The wireless KB I used to like was the Microsoft 1000 and then the 3000 both media boards but probably not as many features as your Logitec but had really nice soft touch, quite and flat smooth edged keys - can't stand those pineapple chunk keys LOL!! The only thing I didn't find any good was the mouse they used to come with.
I have gone wired again and my Microsoft Sidewinder x6 is just the perfect board for all media, general use, gaming etc and is backlit so if you ever think of going back to wired try one of these but they are very
hard to come by. The x4 version is not as good as this KB and I keep it on my Sandy Bridge machine.
This is just a short review and as I said the only place you are likely to find an x6 is going to be Ebay. I had the chance of buying two of these at the time but foolishly didn't Microsoft SideWinder X6 Keyboard Review - Computer Accessories
I have noticed you often reply to audio stuff / posts and I am likewise interested in audio having spend many years when I was MUCH younger building mono and then stereo amps and tinkering with frequency control circuits and crossovers in speaker systems. Not that I am any great expert but it always fascinated me - electronics that is. Just as well cos coming on retirement and wrecking my shoulder gold prospecting has finished my bike riding and woodworking days
Anyway I have wasted enough of your time so good luck with the KB now
