Multiple HAT switches problem

Recommended Posts



I have a Hagstrom KE-USB108 usb keyboard encoder and only the first HAT switch is usable.  It allows a total of 4 and all of the hats/buttons show up in LINDA, but I can only use HAT 1.   HAT's 2, 3 and 4 do not work.  Any ideas?


Thank you.

Hi FS4


Thank you for your question. I am sorry but I don't know the answer. LINDA uses a third party library that is several years old and I have found has several short comings. This is especially the case with many of the newer Human Interface Devices (HID) such as yours. I have a CH Eclipse Yoke which has 2 physical HATS but only one is detected by LINDA. The other is displayed as 4 separate buttons. I have also found that for my 2 CH joystick devices, the software only recognises 7 of the 8 HAT positions.
