need help with adapter

Post by teh_pwnerer » Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:48 am

hi im having problems getting my adapter working, heres some info and pics..

windows 32bit

arduino uno R1 as USB to serial adapter
teensy 2.0 as AVR USB board

ps3 slim
dell stock keyboard
razer deathadder v2 mouse

config - http://pastebin.com/YuyQ2S8f



with the rx and tx pins revered (as mentioned in the tutorial) nothing at all responds on the ps3 with either the keyboard or mouse. however the ps3 does recognize the adapter to be a controller.
if i switch the rx and tx pins around (rx->rx and tx->tx) then when i move and mouse around i can navigate through the ps3 menu very randomly. also random keys also appear to move around the ps3 menu, but not those that i have specified.

another note, i read somewhere on the forum the teensy has to be recognized as a joystick, how do you check this? is it in the device manager?

any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Are you passing trough a USB hub ?
Unplug the Teensy from the PS3 and plug it back in.
You should plug the Teensy after the PS3 in turn ON.

D2 -> Rx
D3 -> Tx

1/ Unplug everything
2/ Plug the serial adapter
3/ Plug the teensy
4/ Start gimx-serial
5/ Start emuclient

I had this random navigation issue when I was playing on PS3 whenI keep everything plugged in for a long time.
(the issue came faster if there is was USB hub betwen Teensy and PS3)
- Unplug Teensy from PS3
- Plug back Teensy on PS3
- Restart gimx / emuclient

It's not a good idea to unplug/replug the teensy without stopping GIMX.
This kind of thing is not supported. It generally results in a broken controller state.

Yes, GIMX was stop before unpluging the Teensy.
It wasn't necessary to unplug the USBtoUART CP2102.
