Will there be an option to update the app on Qnap HDStation or will we need to remove and re-add the app?

It didn't show an update option so I removed and then downloaded and installed the latest one.

I'm not sure I saw that anything was different. The controller support still doesnt work but I believe that is HDStation no recognising it - As soon as I plug in the controller the center button flashes meaning it is not detected. The top left section of the centre light should stay lit up to indicate player 1 status.

I believe the fix for this is to install drivers/libraries within HD station so that the connected controller is recognised.

Would you be able to look into that?

Thanks,

Any more news on this or has anyone else here tried it with any success?

This is so close to a complete project and a great selling point for the Qnap.

Sorry not yet had time to investigate on how to add remote controler or joystick support to hd station ... but you can open ticket to add this as feature request... more there is ticket more it can make noise to PM ears

Honestly i rather set it all up using linux station, but my bluetooth dongle isn't working for me (asus bt400)... It shows up in linux station via "sudo lsusb | grep -i Bluetooth" however not controllable via linux station so I can't pair PS4 controller to it. Seems bluetooth kernal is lacking in Linux station. I could try doing all this with HD station, but joystick is crucial and your xbox driver doesn't seem to support bluetooth :(. I can't play these games without a joystick (especially if i wanna emulate dolphin, pcsx2, emulationstation, etc) and bluetooth is crucial. Also instead of the xbox driver (which lacks ds4 and xbox one support), do this one as well: https://github.com/chrippa/ds4drv

P.S Get someone to fix wireless/bluetooth controller support for linux station! :)

Just a thought about drivers for controllers - you could look into the drivers used on Retropie (common on Raspberry Pi) as it has bluetooth and controller (look on right side about 1/4 way down for list of controllers) support for a wide range of them through various drivers. There are a couple depending on what controller your trying to use including Xbox 360, X1, PS3 & PS4 and so on. Retropie is Raspbian\Debian Jessie at its core(built on), uses retroarch for most of its emulation and emulation station as a front end.

Also, you can install retroarch in Linux Station. Steam too. I have them both installed currently on Ubuntu 16.04 in Linux Station for no other reason really than like to fiddle and see what can do.

I do see your trying to use xboxdrv but if I remember right there is a 2nd one you can use for xbox controllers as well and a generic driver. Hope was able to help :)
