I have the exact same problem. I can however get the keyboard to be
recognized if I do 2 things:
1) Make sure your hitting keys when the SRM starts to load the ARC.
Thats where its doing the keyboard detection.
2) Unplug the mouse.

Im pretty sure its a hardware problem, something is screwy in the
Mouse/Keyboard ports on the box.
