Post Logitech Controllers Disconnect
During our regional competition, our Logitech controllers disconnected during matches. We played 11 matches and the controllers disconnected during telop in 9 of the 11. We could quickly (about 15 seconds) reconnect them and continue the match, but now we've been trying to simulate it at home and can't. This never happened to us before it happened at regional and we've now run >50 game sequences at home and can't duplicate the problem. We are using the same computer(s) as we used at regional (we tried two different ones). Same hub, same joysticks, same bluetooth. On both computers we only have 2 usb ports so we plug the bluetooth in one and hub in the other. Bluetooth has never disconnected.

We are headed to world competition and this has us worried. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

It's possible that with the huge amount of bluetooth devices in the area at such events, that they interfere with each other. At home you're not in a room with a gaggle of other robonauts, all using bluetooth devices.

Why not use a wired controller for improved reliability?

Update: Ok, so I have no clue what was going on at our regional competition, but we never disconnected once at world. Same computer, same hub, same game controllers, same bluetooth, and same NXT.

Glad it was all working, for whatever reason that was :)
