Was wondering if anyone knows if the Steam Link works with the Xbox One Wireless Adapter for the controller? would you just plug the adapter into your PC, or into your steam link?

The link has USB passthrough, I haven't had any troubles plugging any USB device into it and the PC not detecting it from across the house.

The PC generally doesn't seem to even consider that your plugging it into something not actually across a network and told me it was just plugged in like normal.

Damn that's a deal. I already have a link but I was already somewhat interested in that game, another dollar on top of the game is nuts. It's honestly one of the highest quality feeling devices I've ever felt (not sure if it's actually well built but it definitely feels like it, I thought they were pretty much giving them away for the $15 I paid). I might have to get another just in case I ever buy another TV.

You use the adapter not a steam link.

To add some more information...

The Steam Link supports the PS4 and Xbox 1 S controllers natively with it's built in bluetooth, no additional dongles or software is required.

However, there are three types of Xbox One controllers out there, which are: The first with no headphone jack, The second that has a headphone jack, and the third which came with the Xbox 1 S. Only the third controller out of these three has built in Bluetooth.

You can safely blame Microsoft for not releasing controllers that just work with normal standard bluetooth earlier due to stubborn silly reasons.

I had a Steam Link since the beginning of this year, and only used it about 5 times. It's targeted towards people with s***ty displays, and those that don't care about input latency. It might look, feel, and packaged like a high quality device, but it truly sucks in hardware.

I have a 1440p/165Hz monitor, so it's already a tough decision to use my Steam Link. I have a 4k HDR TV, and the Steam Link can't even do higher than 1080p. It can barely handle a high bit rate. I tried 35Mbps, and not only did it still look bad,it ran bad. It can't pass more than 5.1 channel. There's no manual power off button. f***, it's completely useless to me. Kinda wished I didn't drop $20 on it.

Input latency is a big no for me. Streaming tech still has ways to go.

Last I checked reverting to bluetooth is a reduction in functionality both in terms of latency and features. Unless you already had a bluetooth dongle or had it built into your PC you'd have been better off spending the extra five bucks or so and getting MS's adapter.
