USB Keyboard not working in shell / setup pages

  • Hello all,

    Pi Model: 3
    RetroPie Version Used: 4.0
    Built From: Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website 3.8.1 and updated to 4.0
    USB Devices connected: 4 USB gamepads + 1 USB keyboard

    Suddenly my USB Keyboard stopped working in the command line / setup script options (IE trying to input the WIFI password), but it DOES work in the EmulationStation frontend.
    Bottom line, it gets recognized, it allows me to map the input, but it won't work in the command line or setup pages.
    Any ideas?
