Is this possible?

I am wondering if there is a way to connect a computer monitor, keyboard, and possibly a mouse to my touch pro and view the display from the touch pro on the computer monitor. I know there are external keyboards for ppcs but I want to use the ones I already have. Is this possible?

Re: Is this possible?

there was a device driver that supposedly you could install on your PPC to enable a bluetooth mouse to be used. Bluetooth keyboards are theoretically capable of being connected to the PPC, but i'm not sure if that requires extra drivers or not. As for the display, the TP is already capable of outputting in a composite format that TVs and some fancier monitors can support.

If your keyboard is USB then it's doubtful that you can connect it to the TP, the USB in the TP does not support host functions to my knowledge, so it's incapable of having devices connected to it and be able to communicate with it, except for a PC.

Re: Is this possible?

I've not tried to hook up a monitor, keyboard, and mouse directly to the TP. I'm not sure how that would work.

As an alternative, have you tried My Mobiler? It connects (via USB ActiveSync) to your computer and allows you to see the phone screen on your monitor, and to use your keyboard, mouse, etc.

Go to:
http://www.mymobiler.com/release.aspx
for details, including FAQ and manuals. It's a free program, and I use it often to deal with things on my phone while I'm sitting at my desk.

Good luck!

Re: Is this possible?

Thanks for the info, I might try that. The reason I am wanting to use the original mouse/keyboard/ and monitor is so I can use it at work and not look like I am using my ppc, but I do not want to hook it up to the computer. I was going to use one of those switches ypu can hook up 2 pcs to one kboard, mouse, and monitor. Anyone know of some way to do that?

Unless I misread I think mymobler requires your ppc to be connected to a pc. I want to be able to connect to the keyboard, mouse, and monitor without a pc.

I don't think what you want has actually been done before. You will probably spend less buying a Redfly, or a netbook than trying to make this work.
