OnLive Wireless Controller

Tell me more about the OnLive Wireless Controller.

Use the OnLive Wireless Controller with the MicroConsole™ TV Adapter and the OnLive Game Service. The OnLive Wireless Controller is only compatible with the MicroConsole™ TV Adapter.   Users may opt to purchase the separate Universal OnLive Wireless Controller for use with Bluetooth, the included OnLive Wireless Adapter, as well as the MicroConsole™ TV adapter.

Use these controls to navigate on-screen menus:

  • Move the D-pad or left thumbstick (analog stick) to navigate screen options (Up, Down, Left or Right)
  • To Select an item, press Button A
  • To go Back to the previous screen (or to cancel an action) press Button B

Refer to the diagram for button locations.

How do I Sync the Controller?

You'll need to sync (pair) the controller when you set up the OnLive Game System. This is typically a one-time setup procedure. See Sync the Controller for detailed instructions.

Can I add another Controller?

Yes! See Sync Additional Controllers for detailed instructions.

How many can I add?

See Using Multiple OnLive Wireless Controllers for advice on the total number of controllers you can sync.

Tips on using the Virtual Keyboard

When an on-screen menu requires text entry, a virtual keyboard is displayed. Use the controller to navigate the keyboard and enter text.

  • Use the D-pad or left thumbstick (analog stick)  to navigate to the email address or password field
    • Press Button A to display the Virtual Keyboard
    • Use the D-pad or left thumbstick to navigate the menu, then press Button A to select letters, numbers or symbols
  • Take it slow—entering text with a gamepad controller is a much different experience than typing from a keyboard
    • Watch the on-screen menu, and see each character as it is entered
    • To erase a character, navigate to the Backspace/Delete icon and press Button A to delete the last character
