Question: Should we report on joystick/pad issues?
... Or is that outside the current scope of this beta test?

I'm not sure, but I've definitely got a few. I use a Dual Shock 3 controller, which Linux has native drivers for and Big Picture doesn't work with any of the buttons. It works with the left control stick, but even then for some reason I cannot highlight the Community button with it. For some reason I can move left to right to any other button, including up to settings, but never to Community. I can click it with the mouse though.

I did find remapping the controller inside Big Picture to fix most of my issues, though it still has a weird concept with some of the buttons but I guess thats a Microsoft thing.

I found Big Picture to work perfectly (except for the community button who seem to be a general issue, not related specificly to joystick) in BPM with my old Saitek P990, but I've yet to find an actual *game* who determines I've got a controller connected. Has any of you guys had any success there?
