I was able to get my Logitech F310 working in HD Station by downloading the file referenced in this other post:

Hi Philippe is totaly right,

I already built this kernel module but never tested it, because i have no Joystick here (but at least insmod is loading them)

file is available here : www.qoolbox.fr/xpad_driver.tgz

;)
I extracted the archive and put the xpad.ko file in the path /lib/modules/ on my QNAP.

See this post: viewtopic.php?p=721115#p721115

Hello Stephane, thanks a lot for your support regarding Retroarch! I have tried the "XBOXdrv" Application: Works perfectly on my TS-251 with XBOX 360 Wireless Controller. Also Retroarch detects the controller and I can use it for playing games.

But sadly Retroarch is not working well in general while playing SNES roms. It hungs a lot. I have checked CPU and RAM during playing with QNAP recource monitor in QTS but both were at max. at 35%. My guess is that Retroarch is not well optimized for HD station because it is not a common use case.

Can anybody run SNES roms in Retroarch with HD station on TS-251 or any other QNAP fluently?
Hi

I am desperate to know how you managed to get your wireless pads working. I have an xbox usb wireless network adapter in the box, the pads just flash not connecting (have installed the driver from stephane). Any help would be really really appreciated.

Thanks x

If anyone's reading this... Pleeeeeease throw me the last crumb i need...
So now retroarch is seeing and auto-config'ing the xbox360 wireless adapter (yip). However the pad itseld just wont pair. Have tried a couple of different pads and two different Microsoft made wireless adapters (n and g).
Driving me bonkers being so close to resolving it... If anyone has a clue please comment or pm

Thanks all

Hi,

it seems that the download link no longer work. I'd really like to install Retroarch on my TS251+. Can someone fix the broken link or send me the qpkg file?

Thank you,

I asked, no answer yet but for the meantime i was wondering if anyone could share it? i don't know how big of a file it is though..

I have another question while i'm at it. I have Xbox one wireless controllers and I also have the PC wired Xbox 360 controllers, but my TS251+ is in my basement and I plan on playing in the living room. I dont think that the wireless controllers would work, and i don't want to route two usb cables throughout the whole house to the TS251. I do have some cat5 plugs available behind the tv thought, does a usb-cat5 to cat5-usb converter exist? and would that work/be compatible ?

Thank you,

EDIT : Link works now. thank you,

I'm currently stuck, I installed retroarch and Xboxdrv, my xbox360 PC usb controller is connected (the dial has 1/4 circle green light showing meaning it should be working) but it doesn't work. Seems to me like the wired USB pc controller is not compatible with the driver?

When retroarch boots i see a message "100% Xbox wireless receiver (1118/1817) not configured"

Anyone has a clue why and what to do to get this working?

Thank you,

Hi,

version 1.8.4 updated with the assets and combined with XBOXDrv 8.8.2 works with my PC Xbox USB controller.

Only problem I have now is I don't have sound, but it worked fine in 1.7.5. any clue?
