I notice some stuttering in the controller responsiveness and earphone audio when I play and somebody turns on the microwave.
Plugging in the controller via USB does not help. I expect it to work better over USB since it shouldn't use radio anymore. But it doesn't help.
Do I have a bad DualShock 4 or is this just the way it is?
I feel like this is a bad design oversight.
Microsoft has very openly and clearly stated that the Xbox One controller turns off its internal radio when the USB cable is attached. I feel like this should be what Sony also does, as it is beneficial to performance in every possible way.
you dont have to worry bout interference from other controllers from how i understand them to work is they each get thier own frequency of sorts(frequency is the wrong word having problem thinking of the word i want) and the interference we are experiencing i foudn out mine wasnt actually with the controller it was a issue with the outlet i was using not supporting enough power to the system, if i plugged my vaccuum on another circuit my issue was gone no matter if the vaccuum was in the same spot or not. Your issue may be a bad controller getting interference from microwave, just buy a new controller put that one in the box and return it tell them it didnt work for some reason walmart takes anything back.
oh btw i was wrong with the wire, found out it does transmit through usb when hardwired in.
But a noise source like a microwave will disturb a very wide range of frequencies.
