Would Guitar Hero dongle work?
Would Guitar Hero dongle work? –
Just an idea because we could prob use the 2 plug thru USB ports meaning move games that require the eye run off the free PS3 USB.
Not sure why the dongle itself is required when the PS3 already has blutooth????
I have searched google but cant seem to find any info on the dongle.
open it up and look at the controller. report your findings.
has to be a usable chip...
(don't count on it, durr)
The guitar doesn't use bluetooth, it uses a 2.4GHz signal which the dongle provides. Much like the third party wireless controllers which came out for the PS2.

Logitec makes a bluetooth keyboard with built in touchpad. It can be used on a pc but its sold as a ps3 accessory.

When searching for the datasheet for the Au9253 HAS GR i found the idea had already been considered here:
Anyway the other site seems to say it wont work but i will upload photos of the dongle soon anyway.
EDIT: Photos added.
Info on the second smaller chip is:
I think the smaller chip is a EEPROM and the bigger chip is a USB Controler Chip.
