  1. There’s no fixing them, they’re just fucking broken. Lots of people have the same problem. Playstation controllers work fine over bluetooth.

      Nah, the dongles are pretty foolproof, people have problems on them with win7 which theyre not supported under

      xbox controllers work about the same over bluetooth as playstation do. its not a great technology and gets interference and line of sight issues

        Retarded shill, this is on Windows 10. It’s no secret, you’ll find reviews on every store complaining about the frequent disconnects on bluetooth, and every video covering the controller on bluetooth has a lot of people talking about the problem. It’s nothing to do with the firmware, it’s nothing to do with powersaving, dualshock controllers work perfectly on the same setup that xbox controllers flake out on. Microsoft just made yet another dud wireless controller, like their 360 wireless controller where the F1 fuse burns out because they couldn’t figure out how electronics work.

      I seriously doubt that it should be agnostic to that.

      • Oh there’s a fix for it, but yes it involves lying to the controller about what your pc is. Bluetooth does feed device information between devices, usually it doesn’t matter, and I’m aware people have made drivers for it.
        I just think they’re shitty for making it not work on purpose when even nintendo doesn’t do that with their new controller.

          nah, just simply doesn’t work this way

          I looked it up and you are wrong, and confused about what you’re talking about. The controller is agnostic to things like this, and microsoft hasn’t done anything to make it not work in linux. the controllers work readily over bluetooth in linux.

    • I think this is a problem with the first Xbox series controllers. I have been using them since 360 and mine is doing it also

      I wonder if they’ve already fixed it, they don’t like to sit on issues like this

      • Other bluetooth devices don’t have problems so it’s nothing to do with the adapter or its configuration, but there’s a few seconds several times an hour on average where the controller starts blinking and reconnects. It also spuriously warns the controller has 0% power sometimes when it does it.

    • I use some $3 dongle I picked up on the way home from the post office with my xbox one controller and the only issue I had was after a while if I had the dongle plugged into one of the back IO ports it’d drop and hang inputs but works fine if it’s plugged into the front.

      • bluetooth limitation especially with really cheap adapters. it doesn’t like to be around signal/em noise at all.

        for a technology that was really strongly heralded when it came out, bluetooth sucks dick as far as i can tell

  4. I have one but it’s easier to just bind it with the Bluetooth adapter since I don’t have to open my PC case to do it (I have the dongles inside on an internal USB hub).
