Does any of the knowledgeable people here know what system/make the keyboard shown here http://www.geocities.com/thestarcopssite/Web/Others/Images/EarthlyLinks.jpg
came from or is it a kludge adapted for use on TV?:confused: I've looked on this site and ebay and not seen anything like it.

Many Thanks
Steve

It looks like it is loosely based around the IBM PC 83-key keyboard. There where many clones of this...

The "2 rows of F keys" is a dead giveaway. Clone keyboard for sure.

Thanks for the help so far, I just have to figure out which clone! The two rows of function seem a bit like the northgate OmniKey keyboard but with the IBM style keys. From the age of the series it must have been prior to 1987 if that helps?

i'm almost 100% positive that the one in that picture was made by Leading Edge.
