Hello,

Thanks for posting.

The USB connection basically treats this unit like a keyboard.  connect the usb, and windows should recognise this as a keyboard.

for the zeibo, you likely will have to click on the fmc with your mouse in the aircraft to be able to start typing on the fmc keyboard.

Next to the yellow power adapter wich will likely by a 5V power supply input you will need to conect you will see that red RCA connector, this is what I was talking to you about last night on stream, you will need a composite ouptut device from your computer.  some thing like this.

this converts HDMI to composite output (the yellow cable)

Before you spend money though connect a 5 volts + tip power adapter to the input and ensure the LCD backlights light up. These are old Sony PSOne Screens.  So get a psone power adapter like this.

Looks like someone had Buggered the monitor wiring see posts like this, to fix the wiring.
