@J2Kbr

Maybe this could help investigations, maybe not.

I decided to move all my PS4 Pro and stuff onto my PC desk in another room in the house so I could play wired to the Titan Two.

After the move, I have Astro A50 headset plugged into 1x Front USB, and 1x External HDD into the other front USB. And this time, I put the Titan Two on the rear USB port of the PS4 Pro. NO DISCONNECTS.

Over the last 3 nights, I've played wireless with the old adapter, Xbox One Elite controller and fresh batteries and no issues??

Have no idea why this may have helped.

Could it be that the front ports on all PS4 model utilise a "Hub Style", and the rear port on the PS4 Pro is direct to the motherboard using a separate USB Host Controller maybe?

Well scrap that last post from me, I got another disconnect last night.

I've played no problems at all for the last 4 nights or so. Then last night a put the Official Xbox One Play and Charge kit in my Elite Controller, played for around 4 hours, then got a disconnect. Pulled the battery, reconnected and played for a further 30 mind before going to bed!

Is this connected to what batteries we use??

Driving me mad :/

To confirm that, please disable the FFB (rumble) to the port you have the Wireless Adapter plugged. With the Titan Two connected to the computer, open Gtuner IV and go to "Device Configuration" panel. There locate the sub-section called "Allow FFB on Ports" and uncheck the one you have the adapter (for example, if the Adapter is on Input-A, uncheck USB-A). Please keep us updated on the results. Thanks.


I know you didn't specifically ask me to do this, but I was also having disconnect issues so I gave it a try for the past week+ and haven't had any issues since doing so. Even leaving FFB enabled on the port and disabling it within the game itself seems to resolve it.

Do you think there will be a way to fix this issue so that FFB can be used? I'm happy to help with any testing if so.

Thank you f00lio, I am actively investigating this issue. As you may know, the Wireless Adapter uses Wifi instead of Bluetooth and, differently from Bluetooth, all low level aspects of the connection must be handled by software (ie Titan Two). Wifi works in several sub-channels (band frequency) and, it seems, the communication channel can change dynamically. Here is where, I believe, the issue lies.

That makes sense to me. You may not remember as you are constantly dealing with all of us, but when I originally posted about this issue a while ago I mentioned WiFi interference specifically and that putting my router's 5GHz control channel outside of the range that I believe the adapter prefers helped tremendously (though obviously didn't fully resolve it). That would help to explain why I've had fewer issues than some.

Is it possible that FFB press more demand on the connection which may in turn make the connection more prone to disruption and that the T2 isn't handling the recovery of the connection all that well?

You are correct, the Titan Two does not have implemented functions to change the wifi channel dynamically. Please note the Wireless Adapter protocol is not documented and requires from me do reverse engineering to understand how it works, unfortunately this is a tedious and, most of the time, a trial-an-error process.
