Wireless Shanwan ps3 controller issue
#1
Hi,

I'm using a Orange pi lite. Retrorangepi 4.0.1.

The Shanwan Wireless ps3 controller works fine with my blue Bluetooth dongle after i installed driver as single remote. However when i connect the second controller it connects as controller 2 and works for about 3 seconds then both controllers stop working.

I have attached log of me connecting connecting two controllers and then both disconnecting.

Anyone know a fix for this?

Thanks.

I can confirm that 2 Shanwan PS3 controllers work on ROPI 4.1 (OPI+2E) with no issues.
But the thing was to find the proper BT-dongle, for me only the third one worked, so probably it's a good idea to try another BT.

Here you are (I cut slinding plastic cover to avoid any occasional pulling thing out USB).

I couldn't find any trace of this dongle on the net, it was local Russian brand, but it seems that those guys don't sell it anymore(
It was in my old crap box, so I even have no idea where and when I've got it from...

It's a problem - as I'm going to set up another one ROPI set, so I'll need another PS3 working BT as well, so we both are on the same side. Let's share our findings here?

The most interesting link I googled yet - there are some proven names:

Great!
So it was BT-dongle right choice issue, finally.
Good to know for others interested in.

For those who are experimenting with finding proper PS3-compatible BT-dongle - important thing:

after you plug in new BT-dongle you have to re-pair your PS3 controller by just connecting it to ROPI via usb cable (for couple of seconds, it's enough). After disconnection standard BT-pairing will start (with papidly blinking LEDs) and hopefully succeed.

Missing this wired re-pairing stage lead me to erroneously consider that 4 my BT-dongles aren't compatible, when 3 of them surely  are. Undecided
Dont repeat my mistakes.
