    TH8A and G29

    Hi all, I read on here somewhere (I think) there were people successfully using the TH8A shifter via USB with their G29.

    I have just got one but it does not seem to be recognised by the PS4. I have checked the firmware is up to date, tested and calibrated it in both H and Sequential modes via my PC.

    Am I missing something, or did I imagine what I read? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, thanks. After further searching I have found a couple of threads related saying so. I had made certain assumptions seeing someone's name that I knew uses G29, but an earlier post saying TH8A works on his PS4. I think that post must've been during T300 ownership.

    Bit of a sh***er as its a nice shifter, and a simple solution to switching between H and sequential. I will have to continue with my modded Logitech shifter, just have to assign 3rd and 4th as UP and DOWN gears. Works well but difficult to switch.

    on the PS4, the TH8A only works with a thrustmaster wheel, even when used as USB.
    on a PC you can get a leo bodnar USB adapter and the Shifter is recognized as a standalone control.
    So can be used with any supported Wheel.

    Pretty Sure that adapter does not work on the PS4.

    When I first got my G29, I thought Great My TH8A is USB, so it will work... But nope...
    Only works when my T300 is used.

    Would make for a nice combination...
