Hello guys!

Have played Modern Warfare since release now with PC and my friends on Xbox, crossplay works great and XIM feels like native mouse, superb.

But recently whem im connecting XIM to PC it wont reconnize Xbox One X controller, have to plug it in / out several times.
Without XIM it looks like no problem. Also now cant use Sony NAV as wireless after it battery gone empty, charged but not connected to XIM wireles.

I have flashed firmware. And charged controller too with USB charger, also NAV.

Is something changed in Windows 10 or XIM, why so difficult now?

Everything works still but harder to get them going.

Just bought charger what should be ok for powering up XIMs USB hub if these issues have anything to do with power lost.

Lets see when this arrives;

Removing the controller battery and using the nav in wireless mode can prevent stability issues. Replacing the cable with other data cables may help too.

How is everything working on a supported platform like Xbox?

Nav wont connect wireless now, but works as wired.

Yep, better to renew cables as well. Newer know if there is broken ones.

Havent touched to Xbox since i found out that XIM Apex works perfectly with PC. If you have possibility, maybe more focus for PC support would be realistic if PC and next gen Xbox will be closer to each other and crossplay goes almost standart.

Have to try on Xbox too. This might be Windows problem.

...if you’re planning release new XIM model after next gen consoles please take my money asap  ;D

Was the nav recently charged without XIM or hub connected? If not give this a shot. If it has a full charge this is a sign that the battery is starting to fail. This will cause instability in wired mode as well.
