Symptom: Podium wheel base briefly losing resistance (potential bug)
There have been a few reports of Podium wheel bases briefly losing resistance before recovering.
In some cases, this could be related to a motherboard's USB controller being overloaded. Changing to a different USB socket may solve this. External USB adapters and front USB hubs might also cause the problem.
This is a rare issue, and something that is difficult for our technicians to reproduce, therefore we welcome anyone who has experienced this with their unit to participate in this thread.
- Try different USB ports (avoid using a USB hub)
- Test it without using other feedback systems, e.g. a motion system
- Would be useful to know if you are experiencing the same issue in a different sim
- Check that the PC is not allowed to perform power saving on the device:
Please note: When reporting, it is important to mention when this issue first occurred, i.e. if it came with a specific firmware, or if it isn't related to a version. Please describe the characteristic as specifically as possible, for example if it's just FFB signal loss or the complete communication (also a loss of steering or other button/axis inputs).
