That is a potential cause too, from my experience the model o draws quite a lot of electricity though. Even with my non-blacklight keyboard i have to turn off the LEDs to prevent a powerdraw problem. Sometimes it works with LEDs but it seems to be on the edge of a powerdraw problem.
With a powered hub its not a problem though (im running XIM Link aka my computer as the powered hub lol)

My KB is a qpad mk90 wich is backlit but i always turn it off via hotkeys on the kb. I will try to hook up the kb to my PC and see if I can disable all leds via software.
I'm planning to wipe the dust off my gaming rig and add a second monitor for my computer so I can use Xim link. Do you reccomend any cable? As I've read on the forum earlier I need a special cable?

Yes the best one you can get is the belkin easy transfer cable and you can only buy it from ebay since its out of production for a long while now. The windows 8.1 and lower versions of the cable also work with windows 10, just get the best offer from ebay and it should work :).

Is that cable the only working option? The lowest priced cable I find on eBay is about 200NOK/20

It works the best, there are also other working cables but their prices are usually slightly higher. 15-20 is a good price on ebay.

Because this beta has been "promoted" to the new official xim firmware, so this beta topic is theoretically no longer needed :).

How do I get reports from xim apex ?? With the titan two ? Mad over at titan two  said it was the xim apex  problem. So I was wondering if it could be  fixed. What happens is my xim stops responding  after  so long when  shooting  my keyboard stops working and my mouse  and then in game it says aimed down  and keeps firing the gun

When disconnects like this happen, it's usually one of two things -

1. A faulty or low quality USB cable from the controller to XIM APEX.
2. Insufficient power from the console to supply a Titan Two, XIM APEX, mouse, keyboard and controller.

The solution is to use high-quality USB cables (e.g. Titan Connection Kit) and add a power adapter to either the Titan Two (preferable) or XIM APEX USB hub.

Another couple of things to check are that you have Communication Method > Use USB cable enabled on PS4 (refer to https://xim.tech/start/), and that your controller is fully charged before connecting to XIM APEX.

Remove the battery from the XB1 controller, it's not needed and can help with load.

Make sure you're using the latest XIM APEX firmware if you've updated the XB1 controller FW of late.

Regardless, it still sounds like power or USB to me. Test another controller and USB port on the console while you're at it as it's possible either of those ports could be damaged.

It's a no go on the batteries  and the cords look fine to me  I wonder if it's the xim hub ?  Bc the cords do set in there pretty freely  I can move them back and forth ?? Idk man

Rather than continuing to post in this thread (this FW is obsolete and the thread is dead), I recommend posting a new thread in the Support forum. That way it'll get the attention of XIM support staff and they'll help you troubleshoot the problem.
