I have read this entire page and spent 2 hrs trying to get it it working on ps5 with DUALSENSE controller. Someone mentioned with newest ps remote update on pc it locks out dualsense controller.. But then later posts showing it works still. I am missing something or do i need a ds4 v2 to make it work now? Thanks in advance.

I was stuborn reluctant to use this method, set it up in less than 2 minutes.

Thanks antithesis, totally workable, no need of the dongle thingy

Plus now I have Hi-Res audio feed from my PC.  ;D

The reason why I had such a poor experience previously was because I used WiFi connection, and my home network is a mess, now I'm on wired BIG difference.

Check that the controller settings on your PS5 are set to Use USB Cable.

DualSense hardly works on my PC (1~2 time success after plug/unpluging more than 10 times)
The powered USB hub makes no difference.

On the other hand, PS4 V2 Dualshock works everytime without powered hub.

The gaming experience is just like local control. Thanks!

Your guide was very useful, well explained and short. Thanks antithesis

- Yep I'm using DS4 V2, no issues at all.

For some reason the dual sense is not working using XIM apex, but it works directly to the PC. any suggestions?

So after a few beers, I got it to work. it seems to be a sync issue, at least for me. plugging in the xim first, mouse next wait a few seconds, then plug the controller seems to do the trick 90% of the time. Last I plug the Nav. I am shocked how good this plays, honestly I cant see any noticeable lag, although I am sure there is some.

Does not work for me...Xim does not accept the DualSense on PC...is there a hint how to get it work?

When I push the button on the Controller it kicks me out of the Remote Play App, saying "Connection to PS5 lost".

I used a hori cable controller to this point...it worked all the time...I never tried to use the Apex on the computer for Remote Play until today...

I don't like to recommend buying things to fix issues; in this case ... get a DS4 V2 used, you only need it as an entry pass.

Try connecting the DualSense last.

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.

Use a USB 2.0 port, if possible. The XIM USB hub is being used as a USB 3.0 > USB 2.0 workaround.
