    Dear all,

    Recently SONY released a wireless USB receiver for the PS4 dual shock controller:
    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explore/accessories/dualshock-4-usb-wireless-adaptor/

    It's supposed to work with Windows & Mac but we have already tested it on U1 and it's working.

    We tested on FW010.

    So please go get one if you want to use this controller on your U1, the official dongle is now there.

    Please kindly note.

    Regards,
    Team MINIX.

    I would say it's a question you have to ask SONY.
    If the USB-Receiver doesn't work with the PS3 controller http://www.minixforum.com/threads/ps3-controller.10066/

    Hi guys

    Seems the official wireless Sony adapter does not work with U1 and latest version of firmware ( constantly waiting in pair mode ). Ive confirmed the adapter works with my Windows 10 laptop. Im going to revert back to version 10 as confirmed as working above. Completely new to this but will reverting to a previous firmware version like this cause any harm to my box?

    Any advice appreciated as always.
    cheers

    Hi

    Thanks for your response

    I am using U1 FW11 20161201 firmware. Are you using the Sony USB wireless receiver or going wired into your Minix?

    I can't get either working, if I plug an old Buffalo SNES controller in and calibrate with Retrox it works fine although introduces annoying lagg,

    What exact steps are you taking? Maybe I'm Missing something.

    I insert the adaptor which goes a slow blinking blue, turn on BLueTooth and then put the DS4 into pairing mode ( flashing white quickly ) but it just sits in an attempted searching pairing state.

    Just like MINI ken mentioned. This is working

    I am using it wireless. Turn off your Minix bluetooth off. Insert the usb. Push the usb with little force into the usb port until the blue light start flashing faster. I didn't knew this at first and couldn't alsof pair.
    Then at your dualshock press the home + Share button until the dualshock light starts flashing faster. They will auto connect.
    I'm also using fw 11.

    Remember when you insert the usb, press it a bit hard. This is a function in the usb wireless adaptor to start pairing.

    Perfect! But, can you connect 2 joysticks with one usb receiver? Did you try that?

    Thanks in advance !

    You can connect DS4 in bluetooth mode to any Android device:
