[RESOLVED] Xim4 PS4: Keyboard will not work
« on: 04:57 AM - 12/05/16 »
Hi, just received my XIM4, i followed all the manual steps and connected everything together even the manager. Thereafter i plugged the XIM4 into my ps4 and opened up the manager to adjust my key bindings. In the manager all devices are shown, the mouse works perfectly but the keyboard keys dont work at all, in the manager i see no input, and when its listening for a new key nothing is read because the keyboard keys arnt working at all. The light on the keyboard is on and it can also be seen in the manager but no keys work. Please help me soon, so far this product isnt working too well.
Thanks.

Welcome to the community. Which keyboard are you using? I recommend updating to the latest beta firmware which has improved hardware support.

You can find the latest beta build by visiting the Release Candidates section of the forum linked below. Please read the installation instructions included in the download threads.

Hey there, thanks for the reply and I'm using the corsair K30 which is supposed to be compatible :). Also, I'll try the beta drivers anyway and let you know how it goes.

Great news beta drivers worked, one more thing, anyway to make it so the headset connected to the controller still works?

Great, I'm glad its working now. The DS4 controller doesn't use the cable for chat data, it uses bluetooth so our chat passthrough is ignored by the PS4. But you still have options!

You can use a USB headset, a stereo headset + a Y cable connected to a USB sound card, or a bluetooth adapter that will allow you to pair with a bluetooth headset.
