So I got my OCN Ducky...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Amazing feel so far, but I have a few questions:

1- Anyone know of a decent gel wristrest that fits well? I'm not exactly a short guy and the angle my hands are sitting at is getting very annoyingly painful.
2- How do I get the media control things (Fn+F1, Fn+F2, etc.) to work? None of them have been working for me. The buttons at the top right haven't been working either.
3- Is it just me, or does the spacebar seem to use a different switch? I got Cherry Browns in mine, but I can't seem to take off the spacebar cap so I have no idea what's down there...

1. I use the Belkin one I got for $9 from Fry's. It extends about half an inch on either side of the board.
2. My media keys work fine. Are you using USB? If so, it should work. You might also want to enable the Global Media Keys option in Winamp if you're using that.
3. The spacebar is an MX Clear. It takes a while to get used to. I still am not sure I like mine but this board has gotten better (see: doesn't feel as cheap) since I threw the Razer Blackwidow keycaps on it.

I'm using USB, but it's not working... I tried it in both Winamp and WMP, but no go so far.

Have you restarted your computer yet? It might take a restart for it to take effect.

I already restarted twice since I plugged it in, but I'll try a few other things...

Ducky keyboard deserves a Ducky wristrest.

I second that.. I love mine



This is the short version but they have a longer one for 104 size keyboards.

It is a bit pricer than a normal wirst rest but for me it was worth it.

That seller (qtan) is also on Geekhack also and he sells it a little bit cheaper since he doesnt have to go thru eBay.

I bought my wrist rest from him, real good seller.

Sweet, thanks for the link. I'll probably look around a bit more first, but most likely I'll just pick that up. Still haven't solved the media button issue, but I can live without them for now. Really odd it wouldn't work, though...

Edit: Never mind, the "HID" service wasn't started for some reason. Turned it on, and now everything works. Now to just figure out how to remap the keys on the top-right...
