But they are completely different inside. One is using discrete TSOP chip with discrete XTAL - this version works well. Switch is working. Another one uses epoxy covered die on PCB without XTAL - the switch does nothing and has all contacts grounded (could save $0.1 by simply removing it). This HUB works very bad - in most cases devices aren't recognized.
Outside they are completely identical and you cannot distinguish them.

you can try a new driver by replacing the zImage_dtb: https://mega.nz/#!NR4wmSxK!ToIG12nzNGlA ... bSWTjjzg3c

I’ll try both the new cable with Tersasic’s Linux and the old OTG thingy with your kernel.

Yes it needs no drivers, I have both the NES and SNES dongles and both work great with MiSTer. At worst you might need to update the firmware for it in case there's a new gamepad to support, but otherwise experience is pretty smooth. I use these in general, unless I use an arcade stick which I wire via USB or a Genesis USB adapter.
Newsdee wrote:The only caveat is that you can only use one dongle per controller (at least for these two, not sure about the new one). So you would need two for multiplayer. But that is fair enough.

Sorgelig wrote:Actually PS3/PS4 (and probably XBOX) controllers aren't good for MiSTer. They flood by events a lot even if you don't press anything. So, MiSTer is pretty busy when you connect one of these gamepads. So, i don't recommend to use these controllers. The good thing - these controllers require special receiver, so not many people will use them with MiSTer
I've tested them (except XBOX) with wired connection. I don't know if these wireless adapters filter out messages or not. Probably not.
