Delay in USB Controller being recognised after launching a game.
Hi, I've been experiencing a strange problem, in that sometimes when I start up retrorangepi 4.1 on my orangepi pc plus.

Upon launching a game for any system, there is sometimes a delay of up to a couple of minutes before the message comes up, stating it's found the controller. Before this is displayed I have no control over the game, even though the title screen may have loaded a minute or more before the controller is enabled. Once the controller is picked up, I can play any of the games just fine.

But the strange thing is, sometimes after booting up the pi, this problem doesn't occur at all, and the controller is recognised in the relevant emulator immediately. I've tried disabling wifi, but this had no effect. Can anyone suggest anything I can do next? I have the exact same setup on a regular opi pc (not plus), and experience no problems like this, even though I'm using the same pad on that system. Which leads me to believe it's an EMMC problem? In that on the standard pi pc I'm running retrorangepi off SD card, whereas on the pc plus it's installed in EMMC?

BTW the game controller I'm using is a generic USB type, shaped like an xbox pad, never had any problems with it before.

Thanks in advance. Smile
it seems to be power related issues, but we need more investigation, still cant find a pattern.

Didn't think of that tbh, I'm powering the pi off the USB port of the TV I have it connected to. I have a 2 amp USB adaptor which I've used on other pi models before, I'll give that a go and report back. Thank you. Smile
official specs say you're not even supposed to use USB for powering. Be glad that it hasnt fried.

*1. Number will change at any time, affected by the offline stores and local procurement
*2.It is best to buy a good quality DC 5V3A charger . Because Orange Pi don't support Micro USB Power supply.
*3.Pls consider the shipping date before placing the order. Custom clear may influence the shipping days.
*4.OPI PC Plus is power through the DCIN.
