Hi, I am wondering if there are any wireless controllers known to work with total control adapters . I have the Total Control Plus, but my Logitech Cordless action controllers do not work (sony licensed) and my gamestop unlicensed controllers also do not work .
Also, does the total control output 9volts just as a ps2 controller port does ?

pin 3 is 9v
Pin Name Description 1 DATA Data 2 CMD Command 3 N/C (9V) Not connected (newer dual-shock controllers use it as power for the vibration mechanism) 4 GND Ground 5 VCC Vcc 6 ATT ATT select 7 CLK Clock 8 N/C Not connected 9 ACK Acknowledge
i'm assuming the wireless receiver grabs power off pin 3, 9V line
i will dig out my multimeter and see if my tc adapter outputs 9v

my PS2 outputs 9v (as does my PS1) from pin 3 according to my fluke .
the EMS TCP has 6v out on ps2 port pin 3 .
that might be why it does not work . I cannot get tech specs from Logitech or Pelican about how their wireless products get power for receiver or what power requirements are .
I assume it is probably through the 9v rail, but I will try hacking up a ps2 extension cable and plugging it inbetween ps2 and wireless receivers and see if i can't try to cut 9v from pin 3 which will tell me if they work off of voltage from elsewhere . if not, i know pin 3 powers it . then i can try to drop voltage from there until it does not work .
