Grid Autosport Use Wheel for racing AND controller for menu navigation

Question

I love playing GRID Autosport on my XBox360 with a force feedback wheel. However, the menu navigation is nigh on impossible whilst using the wheel (its a thrustmaster). The only work around is to log out on the steering wheel, disconnect the wheel, connect a controller, log in, navigate the menus, then log out with the controller, disconnect the controller, reconnect the wheel, and log back in again - which is long winded. Any suggestions?


Thanks.

Jeez, spent 10 mins searching the forums, looked at my wheel in the cold light of day - the engine button has up, down, left and right areas on it, you just push the left, right, up or down bit of the button for the direction you want to navigate the menus.

I have found a fix for the problem.....the issue is Nvidia Geforce Experience and Nvidia encoder Codec used for capturing the game.

Fix for the issue:-
1. Ensure turn on the USB power modes as all high performance. Check the power modes.
2. Windows 8/7/10 - Device Manager-> Allow to turn off the device - Uncheck the check box.
3. Reinstall the Nvidia display driver without Geforce Experience. Install DDU clean the display driver and install the latest Nvidia driver in the custom mode.
4. Use Bandicam or OBS to record instead of ShadowPlay.
5. Don't use the Nvidia Hardware Encoder for capturing instead use M JPEG or non-Nvidia Codec to to capture. This will result in huge files like 20GB etc. This can then be recoded to smaller MP4 files using batch convert on Handbrake program.
6.This is tested and works fine 100% on Windows 8.1. No more controller disconnected!
7. Other solution is install Linux.

We can now Njoi and play Dirt Rally/GAS/Dirt 4 using wheel disconnects!
