    Okay, here's the setup I would like to attempt:

    -Streaming ISO from computer through irShell
    -Outputting video through PSP official component cable
    -Playing PSP with a PS3 Dualshock3 controller (which I would assume would be plugged into the PC)

    Is this setup possible? If so, how would I set that up and what homebrew/plugins would I need beyond irShell? I already have driver software for the PS3 Controller on my PC, all I would need, I guess, is a way to allow the Dualhock3 to controller the PC, without outputting video to the PC. (I know RemoteJoyLite does this, but I want to use the PSP Component Cable.)

    ... so you want to use it like a console?

    Essentially, yes. This would make it much easier to play on my TV, for when I have the chance to sit down in my room and relax, instead of playing on the PSP screen when my kids are awake. (Can't hide in my room when they're awake. 1 and 4 y/o, so I gotta keep an eye on them.)

    You know if you hold the screen button for a few seconds it cuts the screen totally off. Then you can use the PSP as a controller without it making a bright light... if that was the concern...

    What you want doesn't make sense though. Why not just hook the PSP right into the TV and play on it?

    You're not understanding me. I do have my PSP hooked up to the TV, using the official Component cables. I'm using irShell to stream the games from my computer. My main question is if there is a way/driver/plugin to allow a PS3 controller plugged into my computer to control my PSP. I know that RemoteJoyLite allows this, but I want the normal video output to be done by the Component cable.

    Damn. irShell streams games from the PC? I never knew that. Kool.

    Ohh, I didn't know you didn't want to be within range of the PSP.

    Yeah, and from everything I've noticed it runs faster than reading them from the memory stick. (Doesn't make any sense, but I guess USB 2.0 has a better transfer rate than the internal card reader.)

    OKay, so now that what I'm looking for is established, is there a way to use a PS3 controller on the PSP without using RemoteJoyLite for the video output?

    That only works with controlling the PS3, using the PSP as a screen. I want to control the PSP itself. If you use RemoteJoyLite to the fullest, just think of it as taking out the video aspect of it. Remote Play doesn't help me.

    AFAIK there's no way to control the PSP from the PC. The other way around yes, but not PC to PSP.

    This might not work at all (I was just thinking it in my head)

    If irShell is using PSP Type B, you could use RemoteJoyLite for the PS3 controller support then use the component cables to hook up to your TV.

    I'll try it out. (No time to do it right now.) I'll let you know the results.

    It baffles me to think that nobody thought about this before. You think that since it can be implemented into RemoteJoyLite that somebody would have made a standalone control plugin. >.

    UPDATE: Tried it. Didn't work. I need to figure out how to get the games to show up on the PSP using irShell's USB Redirect function. I think that would work, but I'm not sure how to do it.

    I am certain that it is possible, I remember my brother using some plugin (may well have been RemoteJoyLite) to display PSP game on his laptop, and use my USB game controller to control the game.

    My question is: Will RemoteJoyLite not still work, even if you're outputting over component cable?

    Tested it. RemoteJoyLite does NOT work when an ISO is already being streamed from irShell. It just sits on the Waiting... black screen. And unless it gets a signal, it won't allow for external control. >.<

    Well, shoot.
