Hi All,

I am trying to pair my Wii remote to and an nvidia shield.  But I don't know the bluetooth pin.

After reading several articles online it says I need to calculate it based on the MAC address.


The PIN-Code is the binary bluetooth address of the wii remote backwards. Following a short piece of C code to calculate the PIN:

Lets assume the Wiimote has the bluetooth address "00:1E:35:3B:7E:6D". If you want the PIN for bluetooth pairing in a simple string, do the following:

char pin[6];
pin[0] = 0x6D;
pin[1] = 0x7E;
pin[2] = 0x3B;
pin[3] = 0x35;
pin[4] = 0x1E;
pin[5] = 0x00;

Now "pin" contains your bluetooth pin that should be used for pairing your devices.

Could someone help me work out what the pin should be?  I've tried several online calculator but suspect I'm doing it wrong.

The MAC addresses for my two Wii controllers are;

00:19:1D:C6:EE:61
00:19:1D:B5:57:89


Many thanks

I'm thinking of buying a used Playstation 4 off Craigslist for my son. I've asked what  “CUH” number it has, to find out how old the unit is. But is there really a difference in terms of the games you can play or the quality of play? (The model for sale is a 500GB unit.)

Thanks!

Controller disconnects from Xbox One randomly yet constantly.  On average it disconnects about once every 2-3 minutes making gameplay nearly impossible.  In other words every 2-3 minutes the controller starts “blinking” and whatever game I am playing pauses and the Xbox displays “controller disconnected.”  I then have to wait for the controller to stop blinking (reconnect) then try to continue play.  I stated on “average” every 2-3 minutes, but sometimes it is non-stop (disconnect, reconnect, immediately disconnect, repeat.

I had a friend bring over two of his controllers to test them to see if it is a problem with the controller you sent me or both the controller and the console.  While playing, the controller you sent me disconnected at least once every few minutes.  His controllers disconnected approximately 5 times in the course of a half hour of play.

I played the Jackbox Party Pack that connects to your smartphone via the Wi-Fi connection and had no issues over the course of at least an hour of play with a friend using only smartphones. Does that rule out the Wi-Fi Chip? Should it be the RF Module Board or both that are replaced?

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS ALREADY TAKEN:

- Plugged controller in via USB cable and “updated” to latest firmware.
- Hard wired the xbox one to the modem eliminating it needing to wirelessly connect.
- Moved the xbox one from the enclosed shelf to the top of the entertainment center so that is is not surrounded by any other materials; …

The hoverboard game is when you start out on earth and complete levels to go on to the next planet. You go from planet to planet and the last one is Pluto. You can also play with others all around the world, vs each other and seeing who can get the higher core. Is there a way to talk to others and interact within the game, if so how?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has successfully implemented multiple gaming console's on a network with NAT/PAT with full multiplayer gaming functionality? In particular using enterprise grade firewalls or routers.

I was thinking someone in the university education space may have done this (student dorm networks).

Thanks for the help!
