Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 keyboard not recognized

Post by pholly » Tue Mar 07, 2017 11:09 am

My Yamaha Arius digital piano works fine with the desktop app.
I bought a usb -> micro usb converted and used it with my Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and it was not recognized.
Any way to troubleshoot?
My tablet is running android 6

Hi Pholly,

I'm guessing it's not a class compliant keyboard, which is the only devices that are supported by the official Android SDK. We are going to be adding in support for none class compliant keyboards soon though. So stay tuned, we will post the update details here on the forum when we are ready.

Couple of things to check:
* Did you buy a USB OTG cable / dongle? A straight through USB A - micro USB converter would not work I think. Even then, support beyond things like Flash drives can be dodgy depending on your device and Android version.
* On many phones you can enable USB debugging to get connection messages in the notification area. Does your phone report anything there?

Good luck!

Thanks. I will try a different adapter that specifically says "OTG" (https://www.amazon.com/Micro-USB-OTG-Ad ... B00D8YZ2SA) and see if it works.
