    Would rather have it through usb like how remotejoy is for psp but that would work also.

    I use the latest build of the plugin, but every one before worked. If you have enso you need the latest build. I use an official ps3 controller but Idk how that would make a difference. Make sure you are syncing it correctly, double check your Mac address and then change the end of the address up one digit from what it reads. For example my Mac address is D4:XX:XX:XX:0A:02 so to use mp ps3 I sync the controller to D4:XX:XX:XX:0A:03

    @xerpi

    Question for you, thought maybe you might know this answer.

    Is it possible to write a plugin for 3rd party controllers for PS TV?

    For example, Gamesir G3s works via a usb receiver. Works fine on PS3, but not on PS TV.

    Just wondering if we could get alternative controllers working.

    This driver screws up your analog control. After installing this and using it a bit, if I went back to the vitas analog sticks (with bluetooth off), the left analog would glitch and auto scroll up even though I stopped touching it. It auto scrolled up until I moved the stick in a different direction. It was extremely annoying. To fix it you have to let the battery die completely or take the battery out. Then the left analog goes back to normal.

    Also this driver is kinda of useless unless its going to map the touchpad "buttons" to R2 L2 on the controller and front touch screen "buttons" to R3 and L3. Many games use the front and back screens as buttons.

    It would be an amazing tool if it fixed these issues.

    Would still love to have a plug in that makes the Playstation TV compatible with wired USB controllers! The lengths you've got to go through to get the system to recognize them is obscene.

    I've never run into those issues with the analog sticks, but there is a plugin that maps the sticks and triggers to the touchscreen and touch pad. I can't remember who made it but I'll upload a copy I have and post it here.

    I got this INPIN PS/PS2 to PS3 controller adapter, it outputs USB and it works just fine on my VitaTV. The VitaTV recognizes it as a DS3 controller connected via USB. In fact, VitaTV recognizes DS3 and DS4 USB controllers. But you are right I think it doesn't recognize any other USB controllers apart from DS3 or DS4.

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    Xbox 360 wired can also be used. But to use controllers on vita, pointless, screen too small.

    Thank you for this, followed the instructions and had it working in minutes, had to use ur0/tai

    Post above says screen is too small to use a controller, but using a "PS3 gameclip" from eBay or aliexpress it can make some games controls feel a lot better. Works perfect with adrenaline and is even better for original psp because there are no touch screen or rear touch controls.
