Please try without an extension cable at all. We need to reduce things down until we find the reason behind the problem.

Playing without the extension cord was fine at first. No issues. Then, when playing with friends via Xbox party chat, it crashed multiple times during BOCW.  Leaving the Xbox party and using in game party chat caused more crashes.

Based on the audio noise before it crashes, could it be the headset or party chat? I'm using the Xbox controller with the headset plugin adapter with a HyperX Cloud II headset.

Edit:. I switched to the Series X controller so I can eliminate the adapter. I'll let you know if it crashes again.

The Series X controller does the same thing. The Apex doesn't show a white solid light but it disconnects my controller, keyboard and mouse with the headset plugged into either the 3.5mm input or the headset adapter.

Should I try a new USB hub? A new headset?

I believe so. I don't recall any time the Apex has disconnected the controller except when I'm in a game and chatting with friends.

What update rate are you running at? Can you drop to 125Hz if you haven't already? Knowing how that affects things will help.

I've been at 1000 but I'll drop to 125 and update once I get back on.

You'll need a XIM Apex, You'll need to update it to the latest beta firmware & you will need a licensed 3rd Party PS4 controller like the Nacon Compact Controller.
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

There  is a list of tested controllers on the first page of this thread. I'm using a Hori mini gamepad which works fine if you don't mind having to connected after the XIM has initialized

Just updated from 2021215 to 20210129. Using Hori minigamepad on PS5 with a Logitech G700 and Redragon gaming keypad. Other than having to connect the Hori after the XIM has initialized, this version is working as well as the last one. Thanks for all your hard work.

Do these 3rd party controllers allow the xim to work with any ps5 title? Will it work with upcoming titles like God of War 2?
