DEVICES: PS4

Control Types
Control Center communicates with PS4 via HDMI-CEC commands, which means that inputs are sent through the HDMI cable connecting them.

 

Latency
Please Note: When you connect a game console, an additional 30 ms of video latency is introduced as video data passes through Control Center to ensure reliable control and easy set up. While this likely will not affect casual gaming, it may not be acceptable for all competitive gamers, particularly if your TV is handling additional processing while you are playing games. If you do plan to connect a game console to your Control Center, we recommend turning off any video processing on your TV for a better experience.

 

Auto Switching
Control Center can detect the follow activities on PS4:

  • Power On
  • PS button

If Auto Switching for PS4 is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Control Center will turn on and switch sources to PS4 automatically.  If that isn't working, confirm that the HDMI Device Link is activated on PS4 (Settings> System> Check HDMI Device Link).

 

Basic Controls
PS4 keys are mapped to the following Control Center buttons:

 PS4     Control Center
 Directional Pad     Left/right/up/down
 Back     Back
 Title Menu     Menu
 PS Button     Home
 Rewind     <<
 Fast Forward     >>
 Pause     >||
 Previous     PgDn
 Next     PgUp
 Stop     Long press of Back
 Menu     Long press  of Menu
 Tools     Long press  of Home
 Play     Long press  of >||

If you press the KEYPAD button (bottom center of Control Center remote) it will display a map for all buttons on the remote.

 

Deep Linking
Deep Linking from a Control Center search into a title/show/content is not supported with PS4.
