+
 
+
<center>[[Image:Mij-drivers-5.png]]</center>

+
 
+
<center>[[Image:Mij-drivers-6.png]]</center>
+
 
+
== Pairing ==
+
 
+
Now you're ready to pair your '''PS Move''' device with your computer. To do that click '''BluetoothPair''' item:
+
 
+
<center>[[Image:Mij-pairing-1.png]]</center>
+
 
+
Make sure that your '''PS Move''' device is plugged to the USB of your computer. You should see it in the list '''DUAL SHOCK 3''':
+
 
+
<center>[[Image:Mij-pairing-2.png]]</center>
+
 
+
Click '''Pair Now'''. As a result fields '''Adapter MAC''' and '''Have Paired to''' should have one and the same value (note that exact value in your case will be different):
+
 
+
<center>[[Image:Mij-pairing-3.png]]</center>
+
 
+
Unplug '''PS Move''' device from the computer and press '''PS''' button on it. Red LED should constantly glow. This means that pairing has succeeded.
+
 
+
Repeat this sequence for each '''PS Move''' which you have.
+
 
+
== Detection in [[iPi Recorder]] ==
+
 
+
Run [[iPi Recorder]]. All paired and switched on '''PS Move''' devices should be visible and have '''MotioninJoy''' logo near device picture:
+
 
+
<center>[[File:mij-recorder.png]]</center>
+
 
+
Further instructions can be found in [[Motion Controllers]] article.
+
 
+
== Multiple Bluetooth Adapters ==
+
 
+
To connect more than 4 PS Move controllers, multiple Bluetooth adapters can be used. Each 4 (or less) PS Moves should be paired to a separate adapter.
+
 
+
To do this:
+
* Run DS3 tool
+
* Plug in '''one''' Bluetooth adapter
+
* [[#Motion in Joy Drivers Installation|Install]] MotioninJoy drivers for it if necessary
+
* [[#Pairing|Pair]] some PS Moves to this Bluetooth adapter
+
* Unplug the Bluetooth adapter
+
* Repeat for the next Bluetooth adapter and another portion of PS Moves
+
* Plug in '''all''' Bluetooth adapters to use. Ensure they all have MotioninJoy drivers installed. This may not be the case if you plugged some of them into different USB ports than when pairing.
+
* Exit DS3 tool
+
* Turn all PS Moves on. Ensure they all successfully connect to corresponding Bluetooth adapters - red LED glows constantly.
+
* Run iPi Recorder. All PS Moves should be listed in Device List.
+
 
+
== Notes ==
+
 
+
'''N O T E &nbsp; 1:'''
+
 
+
To power off '''PS Move''' device, hold down the PS button for a long time (about 10 seconds).
+
 
+
 
+
'''N O T E &nbsp; 2:'''
+
 
+
'''MotioninJoy''' replaces Bluetooth adapter's drivers by special ones to be able to operate with different game controllers including '''PS Move'''. As a result you'll be ''unable'' to use the same Bluetooth adapter to communicate with ordinal Bluetooth devices like wireless mouses, keyboards, headsets, etc. To overcome this drawback you can choose one of the following ways:
+
# Use the second Bluetooth adapter to communicate with ordinal Bluetooth devices.
+
# Uninstall MotioninJoy drivers each time after usage. To do that:
+
#* run '''MotioninJoy Gamepad tool''' (also known as '''DS3_tool''')
+
#* click '''Driver Manager'''
+
#* select the only line with the aid of checkbox
+
#* click '''Roll back'''
+

Some Bluetooth adapters are not compatible with '''MotioninJoy''' drivers. You can find the lists of some compatible/incompatible adapters in [http://www.motioninjoy.com/wiki/en/help/btcompatibility their wiki].

{{Tip|Below list contains dongles that were tested to work with iPi Recorder using MotioninJoy drivers:

* TRENDnet TBW-106UB (v1.0R and v2.0R)
