Not sure if this is going to help anyone, but using the dual sense with a PC was not working as well as I expected. The pc I am using only has USB 3.0, I remember someone mentioning XIM Apex sometimes doesn't behave well with 3.0.

So I plugged the XIM Hub (3 port hub included with XIM APEX) to my PC, then I plugged XIM Apex to port 1 ( I tried all, no difference really) then from the back of  the XIM Apex, I plugged another powered USB 3.0 USB I had around, then I plugged Dual sense, mouse and NAV to the 3.0 Hub. This worked all the time, I don't even have to plug the dual sense last. I just leave everything connected. Again just my persona results...but if you are having issues using the dual sense in your PC with the XIM Apex, you may want to use or get a 2.0 USB hub.

Hi, Willthetech

Is it what you means?



Ha! yeah...nice!!! man. Pictures are always so much better  ;D

Again my own personal experience. Also the only reason I used the XIM Apex hub as the bridge between my PC and  XIM apex is because I have no other 2.0 HUBs around. So in theory any 2.0 HUB should do the trick...but again there are so many variables with this remote play workaround, that anything could create issues.

I got this years ago...so not sure if you can find it anymore...

I'm having the same issue:

Xim Apex works fine on pc with Dualsense, but once I load Remote Play, it just locks the controller and I have to exit/unplug to work again.

It surely isnt a Xim issue, but ... that's odd. If anyone knows a workaround. I tried with a Mayflash PS4 gamepad adapter as well and the results were the same.

I'll try to find my Madcatz Alpha Arcade stick and see if it works... but that one doesn't have analog axis so probably not useful.

For that issue to go away you're gonna have to use a Sony DS4 V2 controller.

Dear XIM community, this is my first post in this forum, so please bear with me ;) I'm using the XIM Apex for about two years now and am very pleased with this excellent piece of hardware!

Maybe this idea I had isn't working at all, but someone who has the respective hardware lying around might give it a try anyways: As an alternative to the Remote Play solution via PC or the new Beloader, I was think of the FireTV stick from Amazon. As far as my reseach goes, the FireTV Stick (as it is an Android device) supports installing the mobile App of PS Remote Play. Also the PS4 dual shock controller is allegedly working by cable (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgoSfXLqgg0). So it might also work with the XIM. There is even an Ethernet adapter available for the FireTV Stick. So what I was thinking is: Fire TV stick -> appropriate USB adapter or cable (https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00D9SJF1U/) -> XIM. But for now I would only be interested in whether the solution FireTV stick + PS Remote Play + XIM with dual shock would actually work.

As the FireTV stick is currently offered for a reduced price on Amazon Germany, it would be only half the price than what is currently charged for the Beloader device.

I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions  :)

Wow that's a crazy alternative, never even thought about it nor if it would actually work.

Thank you for giving this a try, antithesis! :) Actually, I have ordered the Fire TV Stick 4K (https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08XW4FDJV/) and a compatible USB Hub with ethernet adapter (https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07NPGVRYV/ //edit: does not seem to work) to try this out myself as well :D If it doesn't work, I still have some pretty neat hardware 8)

I would suggest trying the official PS Remote Play App. Unfortunatley, it is not directly available via the Fire TV stick. There is only a third party software that costs 4,99 € (PSPlay: Unlimited PS Remote Play (PS5/ PS4)) but this is directly available through Fire TV`s app store.

I was thinking of sideloading the official APK like described in this video here: https://youtu.be/gIEMKOOCSd4?t=278

The official App should be this here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.playstation.remoteplay&hl

There are some APK downloader sites that allow you to download the latest version:
https://m.apkpure.com/de/ps-remote-play/com.playstation.remoteplay/download?from=details

I have also found these two here:
https://apkcombo.com/de/apk-downloader/?q=com.playstation.remoteplay
https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/?id=com.playstation.remoteplay

I downloaded the APK from apkpure (this should be the lastest version 4.6.0) and uploaded it to Mediafire, so it can be easily downloaded through the Fire TV sticks Downloader app (see above YouTube video: 5:20). Here it is: https://bit.ly/3nToNrQ Personally, I am always concerned about security. So you might want to do this step by yourself. //edit: Or use the short URL to apkpure: https://bit.ly/3cQISbS

I actually don't get my hopes up too high because I have read this here (esp. the last post):
https://www.android-hilfe.de/forum/amazon-fire-tv-stick.2146/fire-tv-stick-4k-bei-psn-anmelden-fuer-ps4-remote-play.931055.html#post-11961828 - In case you can't read German: https://www-android--hilfe-de.translate.goog/forum/amazon-fire-tv-stick.2146/fire-tv-stick-4k-bei-psn-anmelden-fuer-ps4-remote-play.931055.html?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=de&_x_tr_pto=nui#post-11961828

//edit2: Maybe something also worth testing
PSPad: Mobile PS5/ PS4 Gamepad
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pspad.grill.com&hl=en

Maybe Chromecast is also a viable option someone may want to test:

Is that 100% confirmed? a DS4 v2 in my country is selling higher than a Dualsense... I could try to get one tho, if that would confirmed solve the problem.

The weird part is that I managed to make it work once playing Returnal, but it just freezes after a couple of seconds.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time answering!

Of course anytime, I was having the same issue using dualsense. It worked and when it did it worked well. But it desynced to often and also starting it up in the beginning often took a ton of tries. Once I got my DS4 V2 (official Sony one not a knockoff) it works flawlessly every time I setup remote play.

Good luck!

Looking forward to your results! :)

Dont bother with PSPad, it runs on a forced deadzone value of 2 which results in poor micro movements. Also there is some really heavy sensitivity smoothing going on. Certainly a step down in terms of mouse movement quality, same goes for the version that costs 5Ä.

Od1n, did you speak with the PSPad dev regarding the deadzone and smoothing?

I wasnít aware the official PS Remote Play app wasnít directly supported on Fire TV, which could be problematic. Thanks for all of your info Howling Mad, thatíll save me some time :)

Still, itís worth testing. If it works as a proof of concept that could lead to something else.

At worst, I can use the 4K Max anyway, so it wonít be a loss if this Remote Play setup fails. Does Fire TV work as a Chromecast device?

The programmer of PSPad said he will put the deadzone to 0 with the next update. But no words on the sensitivity smoothing which is just as much of a problem as the micro movements are with PSPad. Which kind of sucks as otherwise PSPad would be a great option as it also ignores video/audio from the remote stream.

Sideloading Sony Remote Play onto the FireStick should be the ideal solution i think.
