Steam Link – Controller Guide

Controllers that currently work with the Steam Link..!

DualShock 3 [PlayStation 3 Controller]
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Only using a Bluetooth adapter and VirtualHere.
A video will be made on how to connect it via Bluetooth. If you’re in a rush though, reading this might guide your path.

DualShock 4 [PlayStation 4 Controller]
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
If you’re having difficulty connecting via Bluetooth, try resetting the controller; do this by inserting a pin in the back of the controller. Video?!

Wii U Pro Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
If you’re having issues connecting wirelessly, try updating your Steam Link and Steam software on the host computer.

Xbox 360 Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: Yes!
I only tested this using the official Microsoft Wireless Receiver; if anyone tested it with the others, I will update this accordingly.

Xbox One Controller
Wired: Yes! | Wireless: No. [But may work with VirtualHere!]
Currently the Xbox Wireless Adapter only works directly connected to Windows; however, VirtualHere might allow it to work. Testing needed!

DDR pad [Dance Dance Revolution Mat]
It works without any modification, as seen here playing Super Hexagon!

Fighterstick [Thrustmaster USB Joystick]
Yeah, this works – after a Steam Link update. 

Steering Wheel [Logitech Driving Force GT Racing Wheel]
This works with VirtualHere only. Follow this video on how to set it up correctly. Safe driving!

GameCube Adapter [Mayflash GameCube to Wii U / PC]
At the time of this video, VirtualHere did not exist – so my testing failed. It should now work with VirtualHere though!

Other controllers that work [Thanks to Haris Pantelis]
SPEEDLINK SL-4446-BK-01 XEOX Pro Analog Gamepad
Logitech Rumblepad 2
Speedlink Torid Wireless

Other Steam Link Videos:
Do your controllers rumble?
Diablo 3 and Steam Link
Can you stream movies? Run applications?
Does it disconnect when you close Big Picture Mode?

      1. ok that makes sense, i had read that there were 3 usb wired ports so i wasnt sure if it would be an issue if all 3 controllers xbone were wired, since that video shows 3 wireless. I wish i could just connect all to wirless damn microsoft

        1. You should be able to connect up to 4 controllers to the wireless dongle – that might be a cleaner way. =]

          1. Ah sorry, I was referring to the Xbox 360 adapter.

            You might be able to get the Xbox One dongle working using VirtualHere though – by trying the same method used to get the steering wheel to work.
