I really like the new diNovo Media Desktop by Logitech, but I already have a better mouse than the one included with the set. Since it is bluetooth, could I use any standard bluetooth dongle with this and give/sell the mouse and charger to a friend, or would I be stuck with two bases/recharging units on my desk, and an extra mouse I have no use for?

Searching for more information led to this page. Matrix of Compatibilities, Channels, and Frequencies for All Logitech Cordless Devices.

It uses a "2.4 GHz Bluetooth Enabled Hub". Your existing hub must be compatible. I think it should work, the only way to know for sure is to try. The only reason it wouldn't work, is if the drivers/Logitech App, have to communicate with a Bluetooth hub, with Logitech on it.

For the charger, I couldn't find out what kind of charger it uses, so likely you'll need it.

The charger is built into the hub they provide, but I don't want/need the charger, because I already own an MX1000 (which is not bluetooth compatable, nor would I want to use it with bluetooth). I really just want the keyboard set, but unfortunately they don't sell it without the included mouse, and the version they sell with the cheaper mouse does not have the features I am looking for. My other worry is that I may not be able to boot without anything plugged into the ps/2 port, would I need to get a small cheap keyboard to plug in there and just hide it somewhere so my computer can boot and so I can work with the bios? I see the hub they provided has two plugs on it, one for USB and one for ps/2, and the instructions for the set say to plug in both.

?? I don't know why you should have to plug both in?

If your board is new enough to detect a USB keyboard, and or Mouse, then it should be fine. I've used a USB keyboard to change BIOS settings, on a Pentium III.

Unless you have to install the drivers, yourself. Then it would be a good idea to have a PS/2 keyboard, but it doesn't have to be plugged up untill you need it.

The BIOS may detect it as a Bluetooth device, but not as a bluetooth keyboard...

Ok, thanks for the help. I will definately be trying this out now. I have absolutly no experience with bluetooth, so I was just worried that my computer might not recognize the keyboard before windows boots and loads the bluetooth drivers.
