    I've noticed that I can't play normally in another room as it was before 3.0 update. It's only one wall between gamepad and console. Before I was playing ok. Now nothing changed but pad is saying that I have to check connection.

    Have anyone noticed this?

    Try resyncing the controller.
    There might be some kind of interference going on aswell, turn off all electronics nearby and try again..

    Was there something changed in the set up of your rooms since the firmware update? Like a piece of furniture moved or something that could be interfering with your signal?

    Nope!
    Console gamepad even start freezing when connection are bad, before it wasn't so. I'm pretty sure that range was reduced. It's really stupid cos it's only one wall between. :-(

    It's impossible to re-sync Game Pad. System says that this pad is already synced.
