Yes, it indeed looks a 3178 kb. But as you said that one had a 15 pin dsub.
This 25 dsub actually has the missing pins in the righty places compared to
the 3279 so I am leaning towards that it in fact is a 3279 compatible
keyboard. Will probably trace the lines and compare those with the 3279 KB
connector to see if at least ident pins and power pins is in the right
Then I will just go ahead and try to connect it to the 3279 and see what
happens when executing the keyboard test (test 2) of the 3279.
