    Attention: When initialization and auto calibration is in progress never touch the wheel in order to avoid injuries or incorrect calibration.

    Note: With the CronusMAX you will be able to navigate XMB and game menus using your Fanatec Wheel (which you could not do with some games before). The PS4 Home Button is L3 + R3. The PS4 Share Button is the bottom left Black Button on your Rim.

    Re: Getting your Fanatec Wheel into PS3 Mode

    For my GT2 wheel, my typical sequence for doing this is:

    1. Turn the wheel on and plug it into the USB port on my PS4 (yes it works even here) when my PS4 is off. It just appears to need a powered port and that one is powered when off.
    2. Put the wheel in PS3 mode (back button for about 2 secs, LCD goes blank, and then back + the button to the left of the LCD until PS buttons show up on wheel)
    3. leave the wheel on, unplug it and plug it into the USB hub. My spare DS4 spends it's life plugged into the hub.
    4. Connect the hub to the CM+ and plug this into the PS4

    CSW V2 with BMW rim.

    1. Hook everything up like in manual but leave everything unpowered.
    2. Turn on the CSW V2, red light will burn after calibrating in order to tell it's in PC mode.
    3. Press power button on PS4.
    4. Now when the PS4 is booting up, start pressing the yellow and lower LEFT black button simultaneously after about 10-15 sec of booting PS4. White light will burn to tell it's in PS3 mode.
    5. When PS4 shows the home screen, press DS4 PS button. You'll see message 'controller disconnected' and you're good to go.

    This goes from latest driver and up (beta drivers)

    @Kain_NL are you sure Red led is PC and White led is PS3? the CSW manual says the opposite

    Oops, I'll notify my direct contact at Fanatec to let them know. Cause I'm 1000% sure that on CSW V2: XB1 mode is green light, PC AND PS4 mode is red and PS3 mode is white.

    Sorry, that might indeed be confusing. But I meant the led ring around the power button of the CSW V2 base.

    The little led display also shows the PS3 mode with red dot, but primary is the light shown in picture.

    Re: Getting your Fanatec Wheel into PS3 Mode

    I am still using CSW v2 fw 142. This is the procedure I’ve been using since the beginning :

    1. Start PS3, connect USB from CSW V2 to it, Start CSW V2, Use select and O to get in PS3 mode. ( I know it can be done another way but I find this the quickest and more efficient for me, never failed. )
    2. Start PS4 with on/off button in front
    3. Connect the Cronusmax and wait for the repetitive A U
    4. Connect the DS4 (WHICH IS UNLIT) to the port #4 of the hub
    5. Connect the CSWV2 already in PS3 mode to the port #1 of the hub
    6. Connect the hub to the Cronusmax and wait for the 0
    7. Press X on the Fanatec wheel when prompted who is using the PS4

    And Voila, never had an issue this way!
