I don't know. A keyboard like the PSR-S970 uses a built-in computer as its brains, and a computer peripheral needs some sort of driver to manage the data that's passing between the peripheral and the computer. I'm not sure if the PSR-S970's operating system uses a driver that specifically handles only Yamaha's Wi-Fi adapter, or a generic one that can handle any class-compliant Wi-Fi adapter. I suspect the former is true, but if someone with a PSR-S970 or similar model happens to have a USB WI-Fi adapter handy, it would be great if they could try it and post the results.

Here's a thread that says "no, you're locked into Yamaha products forever..."

https://www.psrtutorial.com/forum/index.php?topic=31520.0

I've been thinking about buying this Yamaha UD-WL01 wifi dongle, About £55 in UK, as I quite like the idea of using my iPad and having the auto page turn option when reading the dots, I thought it may make life a little easier, and of course I can store my whole collection on my 128gb pad so no messing about with sheets.

Having tried a few alternative wifi dongles on my s970, it's obvious that Yamaha only intend their own branded dongles to work such as
the UD-WL01. So although it's listed as an official accessory for the 970/770 models etc. before I order one, can anyone confirm that the UD-WL01 does indeed work okay on the 970/770 ? as I assume it should do.

Secondly, for those that do use their iPad/tablet in this way, what's your favourite app, for displaying the score, and for auto page turning. ? Assuming I have choices of apps of course.
