Fanatec Handbrake on PS4 - not detecting in Dirt Rally (VR)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
Just got a whole new fanatec kit (Wheel, elite base, elite pedals with LC kit) on black friday and that was working fine so decided to add on the handbrake as read it was compatible. I updated the firmware on my fanatec base and wheel using their PC software, so the handbrake shows input in it's properties page on the PC.

However I can't get Dirt rally to detect it on my ps4. Am I doing something wrong? I've made the preset the Fanatec wheel. No input is coming through when i go to advanced wheel setting either. Sorry if i'm missing something! Also I've plugged the handbrake directly into the wheel base.

However the input is being received by the fanatec system as I talked to fanatec who got me to install drivers and software on a PC then test my hardware, then update my hardware with the latest firmware.
