So I have this USB Footswitch, called “FS1-P” made from finest Chinesium. It's mechanically sturdy, and the switch is clicky.
HID is recognised as:
Product ID: 0x2019
Vendor ID: 0x5131
Serial Number: SW
Looks like many others, but seems to use a different chip: CHG551
The configuration software is Windows only, and more importantly: Chinese only, which my computer cannot even display. It's needed to configure the switch.
Any hints how to configure this?
@kr4dio That‘s the part where the different chip comes in. They look identical, but they are electrically completely different.
I tried the PCSensor software which comes in english and it doesn‘t recognize my switch though I know the USB device is recognized and even sends the factory configured key. (Enter)
I‘m not familiar with windows. (Built my first (non-server) PC literally a few days ago. :-)
Do you have a recommendation where to obtain the chinese fonts? Could I extract them from a
@MacLemon Ah, I see. I’ve used pcsensor products before, so I assumed your switch was the same. I guess that’s why you explicitly said it’s *not the same* in your original toot ;)
I’m not familiar enough with Windows to point you in the right direction. Maybe look for something about East Asian language support in the control panel.
