    XBOX ONE controller loses connection to XBOX?


    Is it normal for your XBOX ONE controller to lose its link to the XBOX if you plug it into a PC with a USB cable? I was using the XBOX App on my PC and had to connect my XBOX controller to my PC with a USB cable. When I was done it would not work with the XBOX. I had to relink it? Am I going to have to do that every time I swap it back and forth?

    It's the same with my DualShock4 (a PS4 controller). I lose connection with the PS4 whenever I use it on PC but good thing I have 2 controllers. I guess these controllers don't support multiple devices.

    I just tried the Forza 6 Apex Beta (MS Link) and the DS4 is fully compatible with it.

    If I use my desktop PC in the next room my XBOX controller will work without having to plug it into my PC. I don't think it would work if I went much farther away though. I played some RISK from my XBOX to my PC via the XBOX App last night. Eventually I will buy a second controller.

    it was the same with the Xbox 360 controllers on PC, and it's a smart decision to not support multiple devices, wouldn't want my Xbox turning on whenever I play games on my PC

    Makes sense. Sometimes I forget it can be used as the remote control for the XBOX. I also bought the media remote control for mine and use that to turn it on and off just by habit.
