    Xbox Elite 2 on PC - Configuration Issue / Bluetooth Issue / Game Bar Overlay A button Issue.


    I have an Xbox Elite 2 PC controller that is unable to be used via Bluetooth. When first connected by Bluetooth the controller is unusable due to the A button opening the game bar overlay,

    This can be resolved by downloading the Xbox accessories application and mapping a new default profile to the controller, The issue with this though is that the device must be configured via USB cable, If you do this then it breaks the ability of the device to pair via Bluetooth via memory (something even a 5 dollar speaker can do). Once this connection is broken the only way to get Bluetooth to work again is to forget the device which then removes the mapped profile from the controller and this leaves you with the issue first described. That when first connected by Bluetooth the controller is unusable due to the A button opening the game bar overlay,

    This leaves you with essentially a $179.99 brick that is unable to be used on a PC via Bluetooth. several online solutions list buying a wifi dongle ($24.99) as the answer but that is also not a true fix as the signal strength requires the dongle to have a direct line of sight and for the dongle to stay within 3 feet of the controller for the connection to work. the dongle even came with a poor quality USB extension cable so they know this is an issue.

    In reality, this is a critical error with this device, and I'm requesting support to address the issue with a fix that will let the device either be configured via Bluetooth or to fix the issue with USB connection perm breaking the ability of the device to pair via Bluetooth without resetting the connection.

    :)

    Elite controller series 2 issue

    Hi Mateus,

    Thank you for your reply. I tried but didn't work, I don't think is an issue with the game bar but with the controller firmware itself. Using a normal xbox controller I have no issues with the game bar, just with the elite controller while on Bluetooth

    Elite Controller 2 Bluetooth issues

    My elite 2 when connected to PC via bluetooth loses connection and I am also experiencing sudden frame rate drops which I do not see when playing it with wired or keyboard or mouse. I did not had any issues with Elite 1 which connected via a usb
    dongle. I updated the controller and the bluetooth feature is broken. Anyone got it to work on PC via bluetooth without any issues?
    exactly the same issue here, have no problem with using my xbox one s controller on PC, but lots of disconnections and frame rate drops with elite 2

    XBox Elite Series 2 unplugged from PC using USB won't auto connect to Bluetooth

    I have the same issue, on PC it seems that once the controller is connected by cable (you need it to configure settings), bluetooth connection will not work anymore, you have to remove it/repair from Windows settings. This is not expected from a "high
    end" controller. Elite 1 was ****, Elite 2 has big flaws. Don't say that this has not been reported during beta testing...

    Xbox Elite Series 2 Issues With Rocket League

    Are you using 3rd party Bluetooth receiver on PC or the official Microsoft Xbox One controller dongle for Windows 10?

    To rule out issues with Xbox Elite 2 controller I would connect it to phone and try to play something (any free game would do with controller support), both Android and iPhones now support Xbox One controllers as input methods. If there is no issues on phone
    then it's 100% faulty Bluetooth receiver on your PC. If the issues also present when playing on phone, then you have faulty controller.

    If the issue is with controller itself or Microsoft USB dongle you need to contact Xbox Support at https://support.xbox.com/

    If the issue is not with a controller itself and you are not using official Microsoft USB dongle, I would look into getting one or replacing your Bluetooth receiver with a better one with Bluetooth 4.0 support or higher.
