Why would a wireless controller use the USB shield?
It wouldn't, but the wireless transceiver it communicates with, being a usb device, would.

Did it help you with the project?

Sorry, James. I posted elsewhere because this thread wasn't turning up any replies of any use.

Can anyone direct me to xbox 360 wireless controller support in arduino 1.0 compatible usb shield libraries?
Does it exist, is it possible to use a 360 controller to communicate with arduino projects. I've seen some info on Wii and PS3 remotes but can't really get to grips with them yet.

Cheers

Yeah.
Point taken.

Aha, got the wireless controller bit working on the pc now. Next, I reckon is to try somehow to find out how to identify/make use of the signals generated by the usb device. Hoping the usb host shield helps here. Don't reckon there's a library out there or the xbox 360 wireless controller as there is for the playstation or wii. Or can somebody tell me different?

Not very helpful, guys. The sort of thing that discourages us newbies from asking questions.

Cheers Geoff,

I reckon I may have to abandon this one, the learning curve is too steep for me, considering I cant even get the xbox adapter to work on the PC, let alone a usb shield.

Have fun

Hi All,
I've read in these pages and elsewhere on the web that people have successfully interfaced their arduinos with Wii and PS3 remotes. I'd like to have my arduino act upon commands generated by an XBox 360 wireless controller. I have been trying to find help achieving this but so far my half-baked plan includes the possible use of a usb host shield and a PC/XBox Controller adaptor (usb)see attached pic. Any thoughts out there? Any ideas gratefully considered. Thanks.

Hello again,

Thanks a million, retrolefty. I've been trying for the past couple of weeks to find something like that. Googling turned up nothing for me. Well done. I'm away to fiddle with it for a while, I'll be back, probably with a few more questions.

Thanks again, you're a star.

Hello Everybody,

Can anyone help me out with a code snippet or two. I'd like to control an MM5450 LED Driver chip via SPI but have confused myself almost to the point of no return and may have to go and lie down.

Many thanks.

Thanks, frank26080115.

I'll give that a go. Cheers.

Thanks Rugged Circuits,

I can't give you exact figures for the amount of jitter as my midi gear is elsewhere at the moment. I was
asking what to do about it (the jitter), rather than what was causing it and having followed the kindly supplied links am now slightly more baffled than before. smiley-eek I need to go now and force my head round some code, being a newcomer to this game (but a veteran midi dude) this may prove a challenge. RC filter, that seems more within my capabilities at the moment.

Do you perhaps  know of a proximity sensor with a smoother/more stable output?

Thanks again.

Greetings Everybody,

I would value your collective advice on a problem I'm having using a Sharp IR Proximity Detector as an analogue input in a midi controller project I'm working on. Quite simply, the reading obtained from the sensor on an analogue input is very 'jittery', which in turn is making the parameter controlled by it ( for example, midi control change 7) vary erratically. Any ideas?

Cheers
