Keyboard Note Input to Sibelius

Does anyone on ChoralNet have and know the ins and outs of Sibelius the desktop music publishing software program? I'm having trouble connecting my keyboard to the computer. I think it's a MIDI routing problem but am not making any progress having the keyboard talk to the computer. Help please?

There are probably lots of people on this list with varying degrees of experience with Sibelius (me included), but you'll need to give specific information about your equipment and exactly what you've tried, and what the result is.
When I bought a new MIDI interface, at first I reversed the "in" and "out" connections.  When I bought my new computer, I found that one of the USB ports didn't like my MIDI interface and the others did.  So the problem can be many things.
There are also Sibelius-specific chat boards that you might want to investigate.
Good luck;  I know this is a frustrating issue.

Best wishes,

Thank you for your quick response. My son found, what he thinks may have been the problem. Instructions gathered online said, "Midi In to Midi Out and Midi Out to Midi In". That didn't work so he went Midi In to Midi In and Out to Out. He then used a different USB port on my computer and also re-installed the drivers. That seemed to solve the problem. I've putzed with it a bit earlier this evening and Sebelius is recording what I've played on the keyboard. 
Thanks again,
