I am expecting to see the colour of the key cluster backlight to change when I activate different layers. However, nothing happens. The key cluster just keeps lighting in the same colour all the time.

What am I doing wrong?

I also tried to configure per-key backlighting in Agent, and configure different backlight colours for the key cluster keys on each layer. However that also did not achieve anything.

I must be missing something essential.

RGB is not implemented on UHKv1.

Hm, this doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the docs.
Can’t even control the LEDs on the key cluster?

Not at the moment. .

Can I set constantRgb on the key cluster with UHKv1, or not control it at all? I mean it lights up, but how does it choose the colour and brightness?

I believe you can set brightness.

@maexxx Please open a firmware issue. The color of key cluster LEDs should be adjustable with the UHK 60 v1, too.
