[Q&A] Mi Box S - PS4 Controller (DS4 V1) Pairing Problem

This is actually a bug report, but there is no Bug category in Other Devices forum.

PS4 Controller (DS4 V1) cannot be paired with Mi Box S after Android 9 update. Actually, this problem is still around after more than 6 months.

Here are the repro steps:

  • Open Bluetooth pairing screen on Mi Box S.
  • Start scanning for available devices.
  • Press and hold PlayStation button and Share button on DS4 for 3 seconds. It will go into pairing mode and its lightbar begin to flash indicating it is in pairing mode.
  • Now, Mi Box S will show DS4 as "Wireless Controller" in available Bluetooth device list.
  • Select "Wireless Controller" in the list on Mi Box S.
  • It will say "Pairing".
  • (Here is the problem) It stays "Pairing" indefinitely and won't pair with DS4.

This particular DS4 V1 is working fine with PC and also another Android TV box.

There are a lot of discussion about this problem in other forums on the Internet with no success or progress, so I decided to bring it here in the hope of developers see it and provide a solution.
