Thanks in advance : I think it was about the timing. Happy to do this if it is the only method but I was wondering if anyone else has achieved it without all the faff? Won't turn on as long as it's connected. The polling rate of a controller is no where near as high as say a gaming mouse and the data transmitted is nowhere near the cap speed of modern bluetooth devices.

And if you wanna play a game that doesn't have controller support at all, big picture will allow you to emulate whatever config the game supports, just like it would with a Steam Controller.
I'd be happy to answer any other questions you might have. Remote Play works drastically better with a wired connection. Please put aside tribal hardwarfare instincts in discussions regarding controller differences. . I hit the Home + Share button and see the light start blinking but it almost never shows up in the list of Bluetooth devices.
Downside is that you'll get all the button prompts from xbox controller X, A, B etc. Simply flair your post after posting, or put one of the following tags between square brackets e. Thanks again matey, much appreciated! Let me know how it goes man : Originally posted by :its ok i worked it out. Technology choices are supposed to account for use case rather than speed alone. The slide thing would be perfect as a mouse like a laptop and if it could send a power off signal to the controller, I'd be in heaven. I use it on Ubuntu but it should work I'd imagine. I read an article that said once paired, press the ps button and the light will turn on.
This is a brand new controller. After a few seconds, the controller should start flashing three times rapidly until you hit home again. I just have to close Steam if I'm using it for non-Steam stuff as it and if I press the middle button it launches Big Picture Mode. When it's paired I'll try to hit connect. Everyone has a right to their opinion, and a right to disagree! The reason it wasn't connecting was because I was in big picture mode.
I'm on the Bluetooth settings page. There can be less latency than wired but that is virtually a non issue in games that you'll be using a controller for. I just can't figure it out. This is just sending out it's signal saying it is ready to be paired. I'm having this problem and can't figure it out. Had not even crossed my mind that that could be an option.
Share innovative configs and tricks, ask for tech support, and read news about everything controller and couch gaming in the Steam ecosystem. I am out at the moment so cannot look properly but when I get home I will have a detailed look and come back to you with any questions. Some useful pages: Come Chat! I held the PlayStation button and nothing. Does anyone have experience of doing this? Thought I would update the thread. So I used a wired controller to navigate through the steam link, I paired the ps4 controller and connected it but it still doesn't work even when it says connected? Something isn't literally better at a job just because because it's faster. Then you just go to your computer make sure bluetooth is on and pair them. Do not report it here, report it to Valve.
When I try just pressing the ps button to turn it on, the light just flashes. It tricks the game into thinking that you're using a xbox controller. I think they'd rather sell their Steam Controller to you. You're overusing the term literal. So I wont expect it if I were you. . .
