So I’ve got this old Logitech V220 mouse that I got for $2.00 at the flea market and I’ve got this dongle for an HP mouse and keyboard that I already had. I am trying to see if I can make the HP Dongle pair with the Logitech mouse and everything I’ve read tells me that it’s just not possible. Is there a way that I could change the firmware or change the frequency of the hp dongle to pick up what the mouse is transmitting? Aren’t all these rf mice/keyboard/dongle combinations 2.4Ghz? Yes, I know that the time/effort isn’t worth it, but hey, I hate to throw away a perfectly good mouse away.
Update: Cracked open the receiver and the chipset says “NRF LV1PA 1836CP”.
I’ve done a little more research and it looks like the Logitech unified dongle has the same chip more or less, or at least the same manufacturer. What I think would be a good idea is to flash the unifying logitech receiver firmware to this dongle. Then, I could download the Logitech Unifier Software and let it pair this “Logitech Unifying Receiver” with the mouse. The problem is I wouldn’t know where to start on flashing this receiver’s firmware with the logitech unifying receiver.
There’s a lot of stuff on GitHub about this sort of thing, but I don’t know much about code. I know how to do some commands in Terminal on Mac and Command Prompt on PC, but maybe this is a start? Something called RogenDawes on Github seems to do this sort of thing.
