Issue changing to Xbox mode and / or running as an Xbox controller
Hi there, hoping I haven't made some basic rookie error... looking for some advice on what to try next.
I received my Clubsport Formula V2 Wheel yesterday to complete my order, as it was shipped in parts as available. Yesterday was the first time any of the components had been connected / powered on. I connected the wheel and Clubsport V3 pedals to the CSL 1.1 base as per the instructions, connected to my PC and performed the firmware updates as required. I also then calibrated the wheel
Troubles start here. ..
I cannot regularly or consistently get the system to change from PC mode to xbox mode. It happens very infrequently, and only does so via the mode button, when that decides to work. The wheel button sequence as described in the manual does not function.
When the wheelbase LED does go green and I connect to my xbox, the Fanatec system locks up. The xbox does not recognize the Fanatec system as a controller, no menus are accessible on the wheel and I cannot even power the system off properly. I need to remove the power source to reset. I have been running Formula 1 2019 and 2020 and neither of these work and both exhibit the same issues as described. .
When the system restarts and self calibrates, more often than not only the red and orange lights illuminate, not the blue... is this normal?
I dont have any PC based games to connect to so I cant comment on PC based functionality other than the test / firmware update software functioning correctly. The wheel buttons are all recognized, the pedal functions and tests work in the update software as well. I will try with iRacing at some point but havent as yet.
I have tried updating the firmware again and even tried downgrading the firmware as one package for the wheel seems to be a BETA version. I am using the USB cables that came with the hub and the pedals (individually connected) for the software updates and the same USB cable on the hub when trying to connect to Xbox with the pedals connected to the wheel hub via the RJ cable. I am connecting the hub to the front USB on the Xbox but have also tried one on the rear with the same result.
I am currently running PC driver 334, Wheel base Firmware 640, wheel base motor 22 and Steering wheel 34. The pedals were also updated via a separate USB connection but I forgot to capture the version. The wheel base FW reports as being the latest version, wheel base motor FW reports as the latest version, and the Clubsport Steering Wheel Formula V2 reports as being more recent than the default included in the driver package.
Any thoughts on what I can do to get this working? We have waited a long time to have this delivered and to now not be able to use it as planned / designed is very frustrating, particularly for my kids.
Thanks in advance
