As for a second th8a (or TSS ), there is only 1 driver in DriveHub for any one device, so if you plugged in a second one it would be ignored.

I had some time to look at this short coming, so I added 2 more th8a drivers and a second TSS driver... I found out the th8a has 3 modes, I knew about H, +/- but not analog.... I mapped the analog to Handbrake... there are templates out there for the handbrake it moves between normal rest and the neutral point between 7 and R... and if you are lucky enough to have 2 TSS mods then you can use them both too...

its definitely in the latest version on the server... drivehub-2.0.3-beta.46
even without the latest you could use 1 on the base and 1 on the DriveHub. I think you'll need to update the base to the latest to use the TSS.
I don't have 2 TSS's myself, so as such it is somewhat untested. I do have 3 th8a's and that code is good, so I'm confident its working.. Any feedback is welcome.

it's perfectly work like that under dirt rally 2.0 (ps4):
drive hub fw 2.0.3 beta 46
1 TSS in handrake mode connect on the accessory port on drive hub
1 TSS in shifter mode connect directly on the ts-xw base
thanks

Is that the one for the tss and optionally the th8a ????? I have one, I can weigh it later

Yes that one. Is it worth it in your opinion? I actually only want the part that attaches the TH8a to the TSS Handbrake. But they dont sell it seperately so I might as wel replace my diy solution.

Thanks in advance.

On PS4 & XboxOne the TSS Handbrake must be connected to the DIN port of the base (T300, T-GT, TX or TS-XW).
The T500 don't have this DIN port so this base is not compatible.
Full details here: http://ts.thrustmaster.com/download...SS_Handbrake/TSS_Plus_HSPARCO_User_Manual.pdf

can tss thrustmaster connect to t500 (ps4)
i cannot sync with usb din
please help

I am not 100% sure, but the TSS does support USB on PS4 and is not required to exclusively use DIN. In theory it could be used with T500 like TH8A. But I would contact thrustmaster to be sure. Alternatively a Drivehub could be used.

The TSS support the USB only on PC (on PS4 & XboxOne it must be connected to the Din port of the base)

Incorrect. The PS4 supports Thrustmaster TH8A and TSS through USB in combination with certainThrustmaster bases. To be 100% sure contact Thrustmaster support.
 
On PS4, the TSS Handbrake (when connected to the DIN port of T300 or T-GT Base) :
* Works in SEQUENTIAL Mode in all games
* Works in HANDBRAKE Mode in lot of games (Assetto Corsa, Dirt4, Dirt Rally 2.0, GT Sport, Gravel, Project Cars 2, The Crew, The Crew 2, V-Rally 4, WRC 5, WRC 6, WRC 7, WRC 8).

List of compatible games is available here in Games Settings / PS4 Games list: https://support.thrustmaster.com/en/product/tss-handbrake-sparco-mod-plus-en/https://support.thrustmaster.com/en/product/tss-handbrake-sparco-mod-plus-en/

NB: Don't forget to update Firmware of your T-GT or T300 base for this.

Now that the price has come down a little I’m going to finally pull the trigger on this for PS4. Only concern is mounting it to my RS1 along with the TH8A. Haven’t found any mounting examples from people online, only TM photos showing their clamp. Hoping I can manage without it.

Though it does seem like I’ll wind up having to get the Simhub in order to get the most flexibility out of having both running simultaneously. Currently I have a second TH8A working as a handbrake but reaching it with my setup is less than optimal.

Can I use my th8a & tss sparco mod+ simultaneously on ps4 or do I need the tm sim hub?

I've tried running them both together on dirt rally 2.0 either plugged into base or into console. Game will only recognise one device.

Even tried using my drive hub but no luck there either.

Any help would be great thanks.

Almost 100% sure you’ll need the Simhub to get both working on PS4 regardless of the game. Been down this same road.

I now have them working together using drive hub.

Th8a mapped as sequential shifter and tss as handbrake.

Although I have no ffb at all with the t300rs
