DualShock 4 Wireless Controller - Connecting to an Xbox 360

Using a USB Hub

 
Using a USB Hub
 
1
Set Output Protocol
 
 
Follow the instructions here to correctly connect your CronusMAX PLUS to a PC via the PC PROG port using the supplied Mini-USB Cable.
 
Load Cronus PRO and go to Tools > Options > Device
 
 
Set the Output Protocol to AUTOMATIC. (IMPORTANT - If not set to AUTOMATIC then the USB Hub will not work correctly).
 
These are also the recommended default Speed Up Settings for DualShock 4 Wireless Controllers.
 
2
Enable DualShock 4 Bluetooth Searching
 
Check the box to the Left of 'Enable DualShock 4/Wiimote Bluetooth searching'.
 
 
The recommended Speed Up Settings when using a DualShock 4 Controller with a Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter are as above - you can choose to tweak with them if you have any issues. If you have a slower Bluetooth adapter or experience any issues with rumble then you should try different 'Rumble Over Bluetooth' speed settings. You have the alternative options of Flow Control+, Flow Control and Disabled.
 
You can now close the Options window and disconnect your CronusMAX PLUS from your PC.
 
3
Prepare the USB HUB
 
Using a Compatible USB Hub (USB 2.0 or lower is recommended) connect the controllers as follows:
 
  •  Connect your Wired Xbox 360 Controller to PORT 1 on the USB Hub.
  •  Connect your Bluetooth USB Adapter into PORT 4 on the USB Hub. If it's an Xbox One Controller use a full data Micro-USB Cable.

TIP
Some USB Hubs prefer the Cross Over controller to be on Port 3, just make sure that when you power cycle the console that the CronusMAX PLUS completely shuts down (No LED) and doesn't sit in standby mode (Spinning Animation LED), otherwise on reboot the authorization won't work correctly. Note: To correctly shut down the console, usb hub and CronusMAX PLUS, power cycles must be done from the console, not the controller.

 
4
Connect the USB HUB to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
Now that your controllers are connected to the appropriate ports on the USB Hub, plug your USB Hub into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
5
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox 360
 
 
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS into one of your Xbox One USB ports via it's Output Port.
 
 
  
The CronusMAX PLUS LED Display will now show the Authentication 'AU' Animation.
 
  
If you get this error code you have not updated to the latest firmware (at least v1.21). You must do that before you proceed.

Hold down the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4
 
  Press and hold the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4 until the light bar starts to flash white.  Once it starts flashing white, the controller is searching and connecting to the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
 
  After a few seconds, the light bar should change to a solid color (usually blue if Player 1) and is now paired with the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
7
Ready To Use
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the Authentication 'AU' Animation to 0 (or a number if slot recall is enabled and a script was previously loaded) - indicating that the controllers are authorized and you're ready to play. At this point you can use your controller through the CronusMAX PLUS and also load any scripts or GamePacks. It's that simple!
 
NOTE
The Authentication controller will be disabled. It will not vibrate and none of it's controls will interefere with your Crossover experience. It can safely be left sitting idle on a surface as if it was turned off.

WARNING
If the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS does not change from AU to a number then the authorization controller is not authenticating. 99% of the time we find that this means the Micro-USB cable to the controller is faulty or not full data or simply not compatible, you should try another one. Another issue that sometimes comes up is that the controller USB port has a loose data pin. It will charge fine, but won't transmit data.

Also make sure the controller is powered on of course - that's a rookie mistake, but be careful not to turn the console power on with the controller, as it will not authorize through the CronusMAX correctly causing the controller to disconnect after a few minutes.

OPTIONAL: Disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching
 
If you do not intend to use your DualShock 4 controller without the CronusMAX PLUS in the future, you can now disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching to speed up subsequent DualShock 4 wireless syncing.
 
This would also mean that next time, you can skip steps 1 and 2 and instead of holding the SHARE and PS buttons in step 6, you would simply press the PS button
