Did you mange to get the ps3 controller working on your firetv?

Yeah it works but you need root and the paid sixaxis app. When you pair the contoller you're gonna lose the remote control.

Also like I said above, I had about .25 to .50 sec input lag on emulators I've tried

Gamestop has a controller called Red Samurai, it costs $14.97 or less and it works perfectly with anything that has bluetooth. I have been using it with the FireTV for a few months without issue.
Also Can be used in gamepad or keyboard mode. It Works with raspberry pi with a bluetooth dongle, and RetroPI in keyboard mode for all your emulation needs as well.

I might have to look into this as I lost interest in the fire tv but now knowing this has re-sparked my interest. Thanks for the information.

I wonder if this one would work? it has full keyboard and mouse functions:

http://www.gamestop.com/android/acce...FRWUfgodN10AUQ

"Full QWERTY Keyboard & Trackball - Flip the controller over to access a full keyboard and trackball mouse to chat, navigate game menus and more "

could be nice all-in-one controller. no need for separate pieces of hardware, pad,keyboard & mouse? only $12.

Real Racing 3
Anyone know which controller works with Real Racing 3. I have a ps3 controller and the Red Samurai. Can get into the game with the PS3 controller using sixaxis but can't control the steering. Any help would be much appreciated. I searched the other forums and found a profile for sixaxis but it still will not let me control the steering.
