I've got two NYKO Bluwaves, one is at my vacation home. I haven't used it in months. I just got another one for at home and it is irritating that the dongle grabs controller 1 when the PS3 is powered up from the unit not the controller.

Strangely, I thought this didn't happen on my other one. The remotes are differently looking. The one at my vacation home is the one with the chrome edge around the remote and the second one I bought (off EBAY) has a remote with silver face.

I'm curious if maybe I got an older version of Ebay and the newer version doesn't connect as controller 1 or if this is just the case with all USB solutions?

USB solutions do/did typically take the first port, but I believe they eventually found a way to make them take another. However I'm not that familiar with current USB models.

I am using the Nyko PS3 dongle and what I have found is that if I turn on the PS3 with the PS3 controller then the controller will always take controller assignment #2. However, if you turn the PS3 on via the power button on the counsel or by inserting a disk and then wait for the PS3 to boot up (past the audio chimes), then press the PS button on the controller, the controller will take controller assignment #1. If you turn on the controller before the chimes, it will take controller assignment #2.

Bottom line solution.
1) Manual press the power button on the counsel
2) Wait for the chimes (boot up to be complete)
3) Press the PS button on the controller
