Title: PS Remote controller (Universal PS5 and PS4 remote solution)
Post by: apex_vip on 12:43 PM - 11/22/21
Hi all,
I have been working on a software solution to be able to use XIM on ps5 and i can say now it's pretty stable, performant with no latency, no bug known.

The opposite of beloader, communication are in an ethernet connection :)



This software can run an all platform but i'm focus for the moment on pi2,pi3,pi4.
I'll search some tester on this platforms.

It require:

 - a ps5
- a raspberry pi (pi2,pi3,pi4)
- a xim apex
- controller ( ps4 or ps5 )

I'll send you all process by PM.

In return you must give me return bug and feedback and information about your setup.
The number of tester is limited , send me PM with your motivation :p

Thanks all for your interested. I have receive your messages.
I will reply all with the process. It seem i'm not in the same UTC like you. I'm on UTC+1 so it's possible that when you send me a message, i'm sleeping or at work . Don't worry if I don't answer right away.

Interested.

Got an RPi 4 Model B+ 8Gb. Not very Linux-competent but managed to build/install Chiaki.

Looking to have a headless Remote Play solution using the RPi, maybe something your solution can provide?

Exactly but large improve it ;). We can't say its chiaki , it's psremotecontroller. . He use the well written libchiaki but not sure to keep in future.

hello, so how do you do it you will have to buy something extra? I don't know anything  about pi  , so I honestly don't know what's going on, I mean whether you will have to buy ,,pi"

Post by: Squirelly666 on 04:48 AM - 11/24/21
Been testing this for a few days now, on a variety of stuff, inc. Apex Legends, COD:WZ, BF2042 & Borderlands 3, and it works great. Running on a headless pi, and just hook it up, ssh in to run the program, and I'm away.

No perceptible lag, better connection stability than the official Sony app has in my experience. A couple of extras need adding (touchpad support, run as a service being the main ones) and this would be perfect.

This is definitely the solution for the PS5/DualSense issue, as far as I'm concerned.

Great work from apex_vip so far

Is it possible to use in an Android system TV box with USB port?

For what remote play?

I believe there's a Sony remote play app for Android devices (I have one on my cell phone) but I don't think anyone's used RP via Android device. It needs to be pc or PS4 or Mac.

Technically it could work on a rooted box but it's not my priority.

I'll begin to rewrite my own controller driver (based on github.com/gvalkov/golang-evdev ) (on remove the sdl dependencies,sdl is very good only when you have a screen )
This will allow me to manage the controllers pad (the only inconvenience reported by the testers)

What usual controller do you use?
Dual sense? The DS4?
Building my own lib is going to take some couple of days (or weeks ) while so I will focus on the most used controllers

I mean players who do not have PI, but want to be able to use it through an Android box,
because the box has wifi function and usb plugged into xim apex

I use my android phone + USB-C Hub (Ethernet, USB-A port & Charge port) to use my XIM Apex on PS5 with a 3rd party remote play app.

Then you're the exception not the rule.

I like the idea but you have the know how & the savvy to do it. I do not.

I remember way back in the day before they cracked DS4 I bought a custom made contraption that connected to my xim, it was a modded DS4 with the guts ripped out and a USB port installed in the right trigger area.

Wonder if that thing still works.

Some news .
I'm currently rewrite my own controller driver for multiple reason.
I'm at 80/85 % of write and i can say it's work very well.
But on thing the beloader can't be:
It will be possible to plug a XIM and another controler on a second USB.
The 2 controllers will be see as the same:
The Goal : Play with keyboard and use a joystick to play helicopter for example!!!

Yea I honestly don't remember it was a long ways back. But I still have it in a box along with all the former iterations of xim.

Version 0.2.0 out:
I completely remove the SDL framework and use my own driver input (directly from kernel). The result is impressive.
No latency , no missing keys, Touchpad support and multicontroller support (you can use several controller see as a unique controller: very usefull for play keyboard and quickly use a joystick to play helico ;) )

Available for tester !

Require a pi3 minimum.
You can mix a bluetooth controller and XIM and play with the controller of you choice without disconnect anything.

Peripherals are connected to XIM4 (G502, Nav and DS4).
XIM4 connected to RPi 4B+ which in turn connected to LAN.
RPi 4B+ runs the software apex_vip coded.
PS5 uses remote play, connected to the same LAN.
Playing on the PS5 connected screen.

I want something perfect.
We are currently run we a custom OS with kernel low latency.
We can play with no latency with xim @500hz without purple flash with lot's a cool feature ;)

Does your soft can be run as a background service (without graphical interface) ?
I have already a raspberry running on my network in charge of many job, i wanna add this one !

Of course and provide a web ui interface etc...
But it's a custom os + software because the kernel is optimised for latency, and other things and if you start the software on a standard distribution , he will work but at 125hz etc...

It works well , but i donít want to release something not finished and have lots of complaint.
The beta have been close sorry. Beta tester is really a need , but too many beta tester is also complicated to manage a take time that is not dedicated to the productÖ
I hope to release the product soon. Itís something different than beloader with more functionality.
The performance is like a direct link ps5 @ 1000hz (you can ask the beta tester , the creator of a device will already ask their product is the best )
Pi3 /pi4 and maybe pi2 ( we havenít test @1000hz yet)

I have planned to ported it on a pi zero w  ( but wifi connection ) and may be pi 1 I want to recycle all device than people have :p

Noted with thanks dear apex_vip. Your solution sounds great. And there is already very positive progress being highlighted on this thread. I am sure that this has made many PS5 users excited, including me! I have used standard remote play but your RPi solution, to me, is already several steps ahead. Personally, I wont consider the Beloader at this stage. The challenges being noted with that solution indicate more time is required for it to be stable and consistently useable. The further challenge is that the architecture is not fully wired and will hence limit the solution capability in future.

I except that these approaches are not entirely plug-and-play and may require some technical savvy to setup and troubleshoot but that is where we are all right now. Your solution is a bright light in this dark space. Not that your solution is unstable, but I would rather troubleshoot my way through a Linux software based solution like yours, than a closed loop device like Beloader that we have no inner view of. Its also great that you are part of this Xim community.

Apologies for the overzealous approach in requests to you. Thank you for your efforts and I look forward to your first release

N.B : I will be sending you a DM in a short while. Please review this. No urgency

At the current stad of beta testing ,i have create my own os + custom firmware.

The install is now: flash, register plug and play :)
It you known how to flash a memory card with balena etcher you can install it. No linux skill required;
It's easy like an openelec.... this is why i ask to wait a little :)

I agree with this sentiment. As is stands the Beloader is the only other plug-and-play option with chiaki as an open source diy. Neither of those are appealing in comparison to what apex_vip is developing. So personally, I would support ps remote controller software either through a donation or a paid license. This view is not meant to force the developer to release the software early. Just expressing my view that this effort is very significant for the XIM PS5 community : Even if the dualsense challenge is resolved and a direct solution becomes available, this software should be supported and maintained as a backup or alternate option. So I would happily pay for that.

I have been expecting your software to appear as soon as possible. At present, the beloader performs very well. It can use 1000hz (DS4 V2) (202112201513) without flashing purple light. I have used the connection status for more than 100 hours and I have never disconnected ( I think wifi6 has compatibility issues, which causes disconnection). I currently have raspberry pi 4 and 3, and hope that the wired connection can be better.

Thanks for your support. I'm try make as speed as possible.
I'm buliding something different .My goal is not just allow you to play with xim. I want to allow people to play controller of their choice.
I take a lot of time, because I had not originally planned to make a custom firmware, but we can say that it is the best thing to do for the product.
It is also the Christmas holidays ... I do not yet have a precise date to announce to you, but I will not ask you to wait 6 months. The product is functional for testers.
A friend's advice, Start looking around you for raspberry pi2 / p3 / p4. There is a global disruption that is pushing up the prices and it is quite difficult to find at the moment. Everybody know someone with a raspberry in a drawer. It's time to explore :)

I am also pretty excited about this new Software and the functionalities added (Webinterface, use of a 2nd Controller on the same input for controlling vehicles etc.) and whether it will work on legacy devices like the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B (with 512 MB). Btw, I just got mine for about 10 Ä on eBay :-)
Currently, I'm testing the "Chiaki for the Raspberry Pi" fork from Fredrum on it. What interests me the most is how you got rid of the annoying "purple flicker" problem. I did a little bit of research and found that the Linux usbhid driver can be manually configured to define the polling interval (for mice (usbhid.mousepoll), joysticks (usbhid.jspoll), and keyboards (usbhid.kbpoll)).

Unfortunately, appending either of these settings to /boot/cmdline.txt didn't do the trick for me...
usbhid.jspoll=0 (auto detect polling rate of the Joystick/Gampad)
usbhid.jspoll=1 (setting 1000 Hz forced polling rate)

Chiaki compiled fine and somehow runs on my Raspberry Pi 1, but I still haven't got it running anywhere near perfect. Although I disabled the decoder in Chiaki's settings, it still causes a high CPU load. The controls via XIM Apex run, but after a while the connection is lost (missing heartbeat).

Hello, for me, the classical remote play via a laptop is the best. I always stream games so all the time I have a laptop beside me. So why bother to install a rasberry if I use all the time a laptop? I'm confident that in the near future it will be an update available for xim as soon as the third party controllers are released. Even regular updates as the ps5 firmware is updated. :D
Best regards and a happy new year!

Exact. Pi1 run at 1000hz and it work but it slow (not enough powerfull , there are too many crypto) i will work on later ( may be the GPU can do some work)

pi400 will be of course supported when i receive one.

May be it use lan connection, for the moment i see only 250hz support and no DS5 support.
Indeed i think they will support it in future. I'm not racing.

ow the quistion was more you use the beloader with the duel sence of the ds4 v2 controller. because some people say ds4 v2 controller is more stable. but if you use the duel sence then that is bether if you have no disconnects :)

Possibly a placeholder for something new, maybe their second-generation beloader? Somehow I think it's funny that they sold 20k of that already.

Or you can also conclude other things :) It's pretty easy to change this value in database.
Above all, ask yourself the question of "why" and for what purpose.
No need to explain you will find it all alone

Back with some good news. I have sucessfull optimized some parts with low level language and gain lots of performance.
So we can run now on pi1 :)

Awesome!! :) I cant wait to try it out... Personally, I played around with some different setups for my Pi 1 Model B: With Bullseye I got it working pretty decently (but only in 125 Hz mode) - despite the high CPU load caused by the video/audio processing. Unfortunately, you cannot disable the video/audio processing in the Chiaki fork from Fredrum without losing the gamepad functionality.

And for Buster (Legacy) I compiled a custom kernel (4.19.71-rt24+ RT PREEMPT) to gain 1000 Hz. With the EVHZ (https://git.sr.ht/~iank/evhz) tool I finally measured values close to 1000 Hz. Indeed, no purple flashing or flickering while my XIM Apex + DS4 controller was attached. :P But unfortunately, Chiaki crashed after a few minutes.  >:(

For some reason I didn't get the 1000 Hz to work with Bullseye on a patched 5.16 RT kernel. I am really curious how you accomplished that.

Good to know that I can stop fiddling around now ;)

By the way: I found it pretty convenient to use iSH Shell (https://apps.apple.com/app/ish-shell/id1436902243) to shutdown (sudo shutdown now) my Pi remotely with my iPhone when running in "headless" mode...

I was just wondering if there were any updates on this project?
So I will give a testers perspective on this software. I had the opportunity to test the last few versions. The latest version I tested using Xim Apex @ 1000Hz, Pi3, Logitech 502 Wireless, Corsair K63 Wireless and PS5. The Pi3 and PS5 are connected via LAN on the same gigabit switch.

The improvement from the last version to the current is exceptional. To me there is no discernible difference between Xim direct connection to PS5 versus remote play via psremotecontroller. Yes it is that fast. I have played several PvP games with no loss in performance (average 1.93K/D over 10 games which is about my best even with direct connection). Most of my gaming sessions were +/-5 hours at a time and I had no disconnections. The standard remote play functionality of the solution has been extremely stable.

The developer is working towards a perfect solution and will not launch until he is happy that no serious bugs exist. He is also working on more features but I will not spill the beans on that! As a tester I have not found any bugs that have prevented me from enjoying my PS5, and the current remote play features more than meet my requirements. But I respect the professional approach from the developer and I am certain many future users will appreciate the good work being done.

My advice to everyone interested in this software : A big challenge will be buying a Raspberry Pi. If you check online, you will notice stock is limited, so you may want to consider getting one before stocks run out.  My personal preference is the Pi 3B+ model. It works well at 1000Hz and you should be able to pick one up for a better price. Other Pi models also work but I have tested the Pi3 more extensively.

Hope this feedback is useful as an update.

Is it possible to use in an Android system TV box with USB port?

For what remote play?

I believe there's a Sony remote play app for Android devices (I have one on my cell phone) but I don't think anyone's used RP via Android device. It needs to be pc or PS4 or Mac.

Technically it could work on a rooted box but it's not my priority.

I use my android phone + USB-C Hub (Ethernet, USB-A port & Charge port) to use my XIM Apex on PS5 with a 3rd party remote play app.

Could you please tell us more about how you do?

Although it has indeed become pretty quiet in this thread, I can tell you that apex_vip is very actively developing PSRC. Beta testers are currently testing V0.7.2. I can also confirm what adhpl9 wrote a few posts above: PSRC is working pretty much flawlessly. I have tested PSRC extensively with 1000 Hz on a Pi3 Model B+. But there is more to it than that because apex_vip is working on even more functionalities for PSRC. Of course, I have to leave it to him to announce these features publicly. And since he is pretty much a perfectionist, he only wants to release his software once it has the core features he wants and it is bugfree (I know: game developers and the gaming industry usually do it the other way around ;-). My advice if you are thinking about spending your money on a different "solution" (you know what I mean): Wait! - He already announced that it won't take that much longer anymore.

In case not everyone realises what this is: it's not just a solution to allow you to use the xim with ps5 (that's how it started). Now, you don't even need the xim anymore. I depluged my xim and all controllers, so i have just my pi3, my mouse and my keyboard. And it feels amazing fast and so pc-like. It's so much fun to play.
Oh, and just as an extra, i can soon play every game with my Thrustmaster t150 steering wheel, even if it's not supported. I can even play warzone with mouse and keyboard an as soon as i enter a car, drive with the steering wheel, multicontroller support baby!
So even if you don't have a xim, ask for beta-access. The developer will be happy having mor feedback for the nativ support, while the xim support is bretty good tested already.

Hi all,
I have been working on a software solution to be able to use XIM on ps5 and i can say now it's pretty stable, performant with no latency, no bug known.

The opposite of beloader, communication are in an ethernet connection :)


This software can run an all platform but i'm focus for the moment on pi2,pi3,pi4.
I'll search some tester on this platforms.

It require:

 - a ps5
- a raspberry pi
- Some knownledge to install a package and start a command (i'll send a documention )
- a xim apex
- controller ( ps4 or ps5 )

I'll send you all process by PM.

In return you must give me return bug and feedback and information about your setup.
The number of tester is limited , send me PM with your motivation :p

i'm interested in your work, but for now i wonna give a try Beloader company. If it will fail i'll go with PI3/4 and wont to try your work. Because it seems your a great developer ;)
No problem, I'm pretty sure to offer more that beloader. So stay tune ;)

Would you be able to give me a hand when my pi3 comes in? I would totally love to try your method! I have done remote play and beloader wired and wireless. Best ive found for me was beloader on my mobile data but it is just not feesable for me todo this I lose so much data doing it. Pre ordered my hori OCTA already :D in the mean time would really love to try a new more reliable method that you have created!

apex_vip has let me try his PSRC software and I can say with confidence that it is definitely the ultimate solution to play our PS5 games with our Xims. PSRC has no delays or input lags compare that to Ps5's Remote Play which has a considerable amount of input lag delays, and PSRC has no missing buttons! Compare to Beloader which doesn't even recognize touchpads, I know this because I have tried it and its really a useless product and a waste of money. PSRC is truly the ultimate solution to make our Xim's work with any PS5 games perfectly!

If you're still looking for testers, I can do it on VirtualBox and report any bugs.

Hey, maybe possible run PSRC on virtualbox?
Raspberry pi very difficult to get. Now using Beloader without touching pad...
Virtualbox version of PSRC got released last week

Are you using a ps4 controller with Beloader? Make sure its a v2 controller or else touchpad will not work

Dual shock 4 v2 controller.
Try this, first disconnect your keyboard on your Xim hub, power up your ps5 and wait till you see the prompt saying that remote play has been connected w/ Beloader, now connect your keyboard back to your Xim hub.

I have to do this all the time to make my touchpad work with my controller, and if i dont do it this way, my touchpads won't work properly.

At the moment no because all the released 3rd party controllers only work on specific genre of games (such as fighting/racing)

No dude. Softwares like PSRC are your best bet. I wouldnít be married to, or remain hopeful about the idea of native XIM translation any time soon. Neither the XIM nor Titan team can magically overcome the hardware/firmware limitations Sony has put in place without extensive R&D on the programming front. PSRC is much better than beloader and remote play imo. There is also a method now to use PSRC with a virtual machine on your windows computer. In other words, Iíd ďget with the programď in a literal sense because it feels as good as or if not better than native. And you can use any polling rate you want (just as good as native in that aspect). Message vip and see if heíll invite you to the discord and give it a try for yourself

That's pretty interesting!.

I wonder which Rasberry Pi version is using, because on RBP 3 or below, Ethernet is lower bandwidth and shared it bus with USB, that does hinder performance.

Raspbery Pi 4, has independent bus for USB and Ethernet and uncapped bandwidth besides of its faster CPU.

I use Pi's (as many other audio enthusiast) mainly for Hi-Fi audio gear as a transport/streamer; audio network/transport is very performance lag sensitive and we are aware of this quirk.

OK finally have a spare time to dig on this solution.

Previous experience:
4 months using official Playstation remote play app over ethernet.
2 months trying beloader over wifi, didn't try ethernet hub trick.

Trying PSRC with a Raspberry Pi 4B - 2GB version over ethernet.

Findings:
Remarkable more responsive than official playstation remote play app. Night and day.

Compare with Beloader, PSRC is still more reactive, difference is not as contrasting as official RP app yet, noticiable maybe measurable with the right instruments. What I loved it is how stable and reliable it is, I inject some local network traffic bubbles and it keep going, is indistinguishable from a native support (XIM connected directly to PS) once again maybe measuring we will have a better a idea.

In short, best way to enjoy your PS5 titles with XIM, PERIOD.

Works flawlessly with Titan Two, which needs to be set to Playstation 4 Playstation 5 protocol and DS4 version 2 on XIM Hub.

Also:
As preston47s let us know you can use a Virtual Machine to run PSRC on it, giving you which might be the lowest input lag performance. I'm looking to try with Mac OS.

And another option is to get a Orange-Pi, which is a Raspberry Pi alternative more available and cheaper ($35 usd) on aliexpress.

I have a gut feeling that pi 4 has the same performance as the Virtualbox version, the reason is that the Virtualbox version has purple lights on 1000hz and pi 4 is the same, but 500hz doesn't desync. So there's some similarities, but we need to test it to be certain. Maybe someone will do a test with it cuz if not maybe I will once pi 4 costs gets back to normal retail price

Correction:

When using Titan Two, you have to set PS5 Protocol on T2 and Protocol polling rate to default. DS4 Controller on XIM Hub.

I can give it a shoot, but I don't have a speed camera o something like that to do the test.

I could run VirtualBox on my 15 years old intel laptop, because my m1 mac needs rosetta and it wont be a proper representation (not a popular setup)

I think your theory might be correct about the input lag and it has probably got to do with the ethernet specs/speeds like you mentioned. My pi 3 is a model b and not even a b+, its limited to 10/100 mbps and that's super low speeds these days...But there is a possibility that it could also be related to the power of the CPU...

PSRC uses remote play, but you use the TV hooked up to the PS5, not the remote play video stream. PSRC doesn't transmit any video or audio over remote play. Only controller inputs are transmitted.

I didn't go to all the technical details about it but that's pretty obvious. I'm just letting him know that it works since he was claiming that it doesn't work with remote play

Honestly working in IT you quickly learn nothing computer related it obvious to most people.
However, it sounds like he was actually using remote play itself to play. Not like as a middle man, he was doing everything from the system he was remote playing from which was the PC in another room from the PS5.

He said quote "I would love to get 4k, but that's not in the cards for all the remote play like setups." so if he meant just remote play itself then he shouldn't have said all remote play setups right? Beloader and PSRC are clearly remote play setups, and if he didn't meant to include that's his fault for not choosing words carefully

Just to clarify yes I was using the "remote play" part of the Repl4y software because either 1) I'm at work and my PS5 is at home, or 2) My PS5 is too far from my KBM.  My initial question (sorry for the poor wording) was my misunderstanding that the PS5 could actually be viewed when also using remote play, I kind of just assumed the PS5 turned off its output.  My solution has been using the Repl4y software, which uses no hardware at all, well other than needing a PC to run the software.

But with that said, I was inspired to play around with my Repl4y setup.  I moved my PS5 into my PC room, and hooked it up to the same monitor/TV.  Fired up Repl4y, let it grab my mouse/keyboard, and then switched the monitor back to the PS5 and it worked beautifully, of course with full 4k, HDR, etc natively out of the PS5.  I was surprised that there was no lag whatsoever.  It made me question why I even bothered to purchase a XIM Apex in the first place. 

I don't mean to disparage this project at all, but I kind of answered my own question.  I'll still be curious on future developments and what pluses (if any) this setup brings versus something like Repl4y, which also brings the benefit of being able to be used remotely.

I am almost certain that this Repl4y method will have the same or much worse input lag as the PS Remote Play (stand-alone). They're approach is for you to actually play it on your PC or mobile device remotely not the other way around to what you are trying to do. This is pretty much identical to PS Remote Play by itself where you pretty much see a duplicate screen on your PC straight from your PS5 console, except they have added 3rd party controller mapping support and perhaps reduced the high significant amount of input lag(on your PC screen) that was present in PS Remote play. Using a duplicated screen approach increases network bandwidth which will also increase input lag.

With what you are doing, you don't really need to pay $20 for Repl4y honestly, PS Remote Play stand-alone LAN method is guaranteed to have similar results with what you are doing. Antithesis wrote a great tutorial and you should give it a go https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=95975.0

Thanks, that's good info.  Just for the record, using Repl4y results in zero lag, at least any perceptible lag as the only way I have to measure it is seat of the pants.  I've been playing Horizon FW the past few hours and for me it plays exactly like it would if I wasn't inputting commands into remote play, and that game has a need for low input as you are aiming a bow most of the time. It feels just like playing a FPS PC game natively.

I would put the time into getting the XIM to work over remote play, but honestly I'm not really feeling it's worth the trouble. That's really where my question on this pi setup was going.

I tried this weekend PSRC on VirtualBox on a Gaming PC and Mac Mini M1, vs Raspberry Pi4 2GB.

Test game: Battlefront 2 which I know pretty well (I been playing for 5 years, on diferent platforms) and I can tell, without of doubt, Raspberry Pi 4 is the closest you can get to native.

I tried on two PS5 side to side one with native DS4 XIM an another with PSRC on VirtualBox and then Raspberry Pi. Titan Two as pretty helpful too because I run some very tight timing macros(rapidfire) and on PSRC on RBP wireless or Official Remote Play rapid fire got jammed and glitch, VirtualBox PSRC is pretty close to native, and RBP 4 PSRC was the best.

if I buy a pie, do I get instructions from you how to run this?

I am not familiar with a Raspberry Pie and would need help then setting it up. Is there this help from you (a tutorial) or do I have to acquire initial knowledge with the Pie myself?

I would like to test it.

They have a version of this that runs in VirtualBox on PC. That's the simplest solution given the difficulty buying a Pi.

Oh nice, that would be a solution for me, PC and PS5 are at the same desk. Maybe I can try this. I wrote you a PM @apex_vip

I really want to test PSRC myself but can't get an invitation. I wrote to the author of the utility here in the forum but no reply. Is there another way to achieve scoring an invitation?

I assume the testing group is saturated and no more testers are invited (for now).
You will probably have to wait for the creator to post a statement on how the future roadmap will look like.
I was very busy and in travel :), invitation will be send

No problem man! When you get a moment send that invite and I'll join discord! Thanks

UPDATE.

I have almost a month using PSCR, and guys I was wrong...

I had an unusual/complex setup on my gaming station, where XIM is connected to Titan Two and there goes to 3 devices PC, XBox Series X, PS5 via USB switch.

I though I needed to connect Titan/XIM directly to PSRC module (Raspberry Pi 4 with PSRC OS) everytime I wanted to play on PS5 to avoid issues with my USB Switch+Hubs mess...

Nope, at all!  is so transparent and seamless I just plug the USB input for PS5 to the PSRC module and forget it.... literately, to the point that I moved from home took all my gear with me and forgot the PSRC module XD that tells you how well and zero issues works, fortuntely I build another one and I'm back to business.

Thanks apex_vip for bring us this solution.

Raspberrys are hard to get on US, I think... but you can get Orange Pi's which are the same thing just chinese clones, those things are around $30 usd. is so easy to build your PSRC if you guys are interested I can do a video tutorial.

The PSRC module is size of a cigarretts box, and uses a very low power AC adapter, way more convieneant than using a PC or an old laptop.

To everyone that wants to test PSRC,

Testing has been temporarily put into halt by the creator. He wants new testers to test out the new version of PSRC and not the current one. Bad news is that new testers will have to wait for the new version to come out, the good news is that it seems like it isn't going to take very long now, though things could change of course.

Sorry if it's a dumb questiont, but can psrc also work on Linux with virtual machine?
Yes. The psrc VM will work wherever VirtualBox will work. So running on Linux is no problem.
Also their is a psrc deb file which installs directly on Ubuntu Linux 22.04. This does not need a VM and will run directly from your hardware. For me this has been the best version of psrc. If you are running Ubuntu Linux 22.04 (or any variant thereoff) on your pc/laptop then this is an excellent option to try first

Does anyone know if this solution will allow me to connect a Switch Pro Controller to the Raspberry Pi through Bluetooth and play PS5 games with it, or do i still need to connect an external device like XIM / Titan-Two ?

I know this is based on Chiaki and by default Chiaki only has mapping for keyboard besides the DS4 controller. Just curious if this will be the same.

Wrong itís not based on chiaki.
All is written from scratch. Thatís why the performance is high over

The stream protocol has been rewrite from scratch with high optimization.
The result is amazing trust me ;) and much more than that was published before

The new version of PSRC for Pi just recently got released and I can confirm that it no longer has any extra input lag, pretty much the same input lag as a direct usb connection with our Xims. I can now highly recommend the Pi version for online competitive games. I will be updating my Pros and Cons with the Pi version soon as well as upload a video with an input lag test.

I will begin to send new invite this week. Like Prestonís announce , I have successful reduce the input lag near zero to all platform. We are currently benchmark but I have seen huge difference between other solution .

There are no magic , other solution is based on the same base coded write to play on a remote device with video. I have rewrite all with another point of view.

Hey apex_vip, this sounds like a great alternative to the rather lacklustre Remote Play I've been using, so any improvements to that would be most appreciated without shelling out for new hardware. Could I also request a link to the PSRC via virtualbox variant?

I've tested with chiaki prior to this with its own share of problems. The desktop running this will be hooked up to the same switch as the PS5 so I'm hoping for some decent latency, PS RP has been inconsistent at times.

Psrc is high over other solutions. Several people here can confirm include od1n. You find the latest benchmark by Preston on YouTube.b
Personally I earn nothing ( same people can be confirm) , Iíll do it for me and my community/team.

Psrc is also free on a closed community and on invite only for the moment.

My 1 cents explain why closed community:
1) First electronic hardware is difficult to find because Covid. I canít work an hardware solution for now.
2) i have successful demonstrate that psrc can have less latency that usb direct hardware . So psrc is a long life product now ( and want to keep it as long is possible). Except if Sony detect something. ( this is my next point)
3) Chialki and other solution have big public fingerprint. Psrc has less , but  can have it too. With a closed community I reduce the exposition of my community.

Chiaki will be no where near close to PSRC's performance. Chiaki was developed to play your ps4 or ps5 games in your computer's operating system and not the other way around, this will use a lot of video bandwidth and will increase input lag. PSRC's video bandwidth was reduced to a bare minimum and this is why PSRC even beats out usb direct connections from Xim.

Post by: gravkaw on 11:07 PM - 07/24/22
Chiaki on my RPi4 ran with a noticeable delay but it's been great with Windows 10.

In any case, I'd rather test this out for myself than to take someone else's word for it.

After some troubleshooting and testing with Virtual Box, I can definitely tell that PSRC has lower latency than Chiaki (tested with Xim Nexus Gyro aiming in DS4 output mode). If you're considering a Beloader product and have a setup ready for LAN connections, do yourself a favor and buy a Raspberry Pi instead and install PSRC if you care about latency.

Send like all demand pi4 :)
For Virtualbox demand, we are working on a better documentation (it's a little bit too much difficult for certains users).

We have succesfull support the  x96 mini (1go ram and 2go ram) So you can easily find one for a cheap price (15 $ to 25$) .
In power point of view we are between pi3 and pi4 and USB support xim at 1000hz!

If you have one, you can off course ask invit :)

I think the virtual.box documentation is actually quite comprehensive, only a few more troubleshooting steps could be added (such as the usb filter and un/replug procedure)

Can only recommend the virtual box solution, so much better than any other PS5 solution out there! :)

I started by running psrc in a virtualbox on a 2017 27" iMac running macOS Monterey. It performed well but I did have problems with USB sync (purple flashing). I switched to using a Linux install on a 2011 iMac. Despite the fact that the older iMac is a much slower computer, psrc runs much better since it has direct access to the hardware. It's a big improvement over my Beloader and runs at 1000Hz with no issues (personally I prefer 250Hz with no smoothing but that's another story). If you don't have access to a Raspberry Pi, apex_vip is currently testing psrc running on an X96 Android tv box running armbian Linux and so far everything looks pretty good.

Iíd love to help test if you are still sending out invites. I have a spare Pi4 sitting around and I can also help test virtualbox if needed.
Send like all demand pi4 :)
For Virtualbox demand, we are working on a better documentation (it's a little bit too much difficult for certains users).

We have succesfull support the  x96 mini (1go ram and 2go ram) So you can easily find one for a cheap price (15 $ to 25$) .
In power point of view we are between pi3 and pi4 and USB support xim at 1000hz!

If you have one, you can off course ask invit :)

I have an x96 arriving this wednesday. any chance I can help you test?

Of course !. You just need a micro sd card , flash the card and the os boot on it. We dont touch the firmware stock :)!

Invited!
X96 max + is also confirmed to work. More powerfull than pi4 and we donít touch the firmware stock :)

I have read lots of false information about psrc.
Psrc is not exclusive to XIM . Iím a Xim user and I give possibility to XIM users to play with it. But other devices is also supported. People that have no current controller is also accepted ( but XIM is offer more control )


To install , NO itís not a hard task.
For x96 series and pi you flash a sd card , you boot on it you registerÖ
For virtual box : yes itís more complicated and it was a solution we have found before find new cheap devices :)
We still continue to support virtual box of course and bare metal PC/Mac,  but itís for intermediate psrc users :)

Hey apex_vip, i'm interested in testing also if there are any spots available. I'm going to buy x96max + and tested with PSRC.

Hey apex_vip,

I'd love to help test out PSRC if you're still sending out more invitations!

Ive currently got a Raspberry Pi 4 at home I can use, I am also down to help out testing for the virtual box software if any more help is needed.

Would love to test this out, got back into gaming after a while. Got an X96 mini laying around that I can use. Would be cool to get invited, thanks!

Orange Pi also works with PSRC, is about $40 USD and available.

So I have absolutely no experience with raspberry pi/x96/Orange pi. Which one of these three+the exact model should I get?

So I have absolutely no experience with raspberry pi/Orange pi. Which one of these three+the exact model should I get?

On Rasberry Pi/ Orange Pi: it is quite simple, easy to setup and a very convenient alternative; x96 is overdoing it IMO.

Orange Pi is a chinese clone of Raspberry Pi.

Recommended versions:
Raspberry Pi 4B. you can find it with 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB options. 1GB is enough to run PSRC OS.
Even though PSRC OS supports earlier raspberry models, 4B has a more powerful CPU and a dedicated Ethernet bus to delivering less input lag than any earlier models.

Orange Pi: Orange Pi 4 LTS, works with PSRC OS for Raspberry Pi 3, which is a hardware equivalent.

About Raspberry Pi.
It is a mini computer the size of a box of cigarettes. It has a CPU, RAM, USB ports, Ethernet port, Bluetooth, Wifi, sound-card, Display ports and a card reader which works like a hard disk drive.

Hardware wise its processing power it is similar to a basic smartphone, where its biggest feature is: multipurpose, meaning what ever OS you put on the MicroSD card will change its entire functionality.

There are many OS for raspberry pi, each specifically written to do one of these task:
+ a dedicated MAME, SNES, NES, Genesis Emulator.
+ Desktop Computer
+ Network-Attached Store
+ Hi-Fi Audio Streamer
+ DNLA Multimedia Server
--- and much more.

And our case of use and thanks to apex_vip who develop PSRC, a Playstation Remote Play mini computer, that only consumes about 3W, and a very small footprint.

Once you setup PSRC on the microSD, ethernet cable on the Rasbperry Pi, connect your XIM Apex to a USB port on the Rasbperry Pi, and that's it you have remote play and XIM Apex running on PS5 games, without any noticeable input lag and rock solid performance, WAY better than Beloader stuff.

How to built a Rasbperry PI with PSRC.
Skill level: none.
Need a PC or Mac.
You need access (invitation) to get the PSRC OS.
Using a computer...
Download the img file for your Raspberry version.
Use a program that will install the img file to the microSD card, like Balena Etcher, Raspberry Imager, Rufus (PC) program will turn your MicroSD card into on a PSRC system drive.
Put it on Rasberry pi, card reader and you have a independent mini computer with Remote play functionality.
