Xbox 360 Wireless Controller

Connecting to a PS4

 
 
The PlayStation 4 requires full time security authentication from a native controller (In this case a DualShock 4).  This means if the PS4 does not receive a response to a controllers security challenges after approximately 10 minutes, it will cease communication with the connected controller.
 
If you wish to use any other controller other than the consoles native controller, this is known as "Crossover Support". To enable Crossover Support on the PlayStation 4 you have two options.
 
Full PS4 Crossover Support: This is the preferred and most popular method; the ability to connect both the Authentication controller and the gaming controller to your CronusMAX PLUS via a compatible USB Hub at the same time. The advantage is that you can play for as long as you wish without any security timeouts or disconnections between the console and the controller - the security challenge is permanently available to the console. The initial setup process when powering on the console is also much more automated. If you have a PS4 console we highly recommend this method.
 
Remember that even though you are using a USB Hub with multiple USB ports, you can only game with one controller at a time per CronusMAX PLUS. The Second controller connected is used for security authentication only, not for gaming.

Partial PS4 Crossover Support: If you do not have a compatible USB Hub, you can enable Partial PS4 Crossover Support. As the PS4 is unable to read the security challenge from the authentication controller, the console will disconnect after 8-10 minutes depending on which game is being played and you would normally have to unplug the CronusMAX PLUS and then reconnect / reauthorize. With the Partial PS4 Crossover option enabled, the CronusMAX PLUS will automatically disconnect from the Console and reconnect every 10 minutes, resetting the authorization timer. The downside is that you will have a 1 second pause in gameplay every 10 minutes. The major disadvantage of this is when playing with two players the game can reset back to the game menu or player profile causing major disruption, and some games such as Driveclub will stop the car all together while driving.
 
This is why OPTION 1 is strongly recommended, you will have none of these problems when using a USB Hub.
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Once a controller is being used for authentication, it cannot be used as a second controller as the console is not able to detect two controllers with the same security signature at the same time. It must remain connected at all times (if using a USB Hub), or if you are not using a USB Hub, it must remain unconnected to the console while the CronusMAX PLUS is in use, so that the console can recognize that a valid security signature is present. This also keeps the process completely stealth and legitimate on any Xbox Live or PSN service.
