PS3 DUALSHOCK3 with ASUS BT400 not working

  • Hi.

    New setup - RPI3, BT400 & dualshock3. All brand new off amazon - the controller is labelled sony. However the box doesnt recognize the controller. When connecting via USB, the controller blinks, after that it doesnt seem to connect via BT. Any Idea?

    Recalbox is 4.0-beta5

  • Yeah, check dmesg and make sure that the manufacturer of your device is sony, not gasia or shanwan
