PREFERRED USB PORTS: If your mouse or keyboard isn’t being identified correctly, it may be because your device is describing itself to your XIM APEX in a way it doesn’t understand. In this case, try plugging your device into its “preferred port” on your XIM HUB:

Port #1: Mouse
Port #2: Keyboard/Joystick
Port #3: Controller

RECHARGABLE DEVICES: Some devices can be run in either wired or wireless mode. When in wired mode, the device also recharges. Please be aware that your XIM APEX may not be able to source the power required to charge these devices. When plugged in, they may be non-functional or the XIM APEX may be shut down.
