List of Steam Link compatible controllers, adapters etc.
NOTE: Steam Link and NVIDIA Shield TV does not have same controller compatibility on Steam streaming.

Here is my list for Shield TV in case more than me own that too and use it for Steam.
https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/934542/shield-tv/list-with-compatible-usb-adapters-and-gamepads-for-shield-tv/13/

Steam Link supports far more controllers than here, and probably more adapters too. Its nice if you can add more in comments so i can add them to this list.
Non working is as important as working ones.

- No USB controller or adapter will hurt Steam Link.
- Official compatible list is incomplete, because there is no way for Valve to try all controllers on the planet.

Can you try the latest Steam Link beta build? It has support for more Xbox controllers, including that one I believe.
V3ntilator Sep 21, 2017 @ 4:35am

- "Dobe Xbox One Wired Gamepad" Green Lamps is blinking, but nothing on gamepad works.

More Compatible Gamepads added

- NEXT NES USB Gamepad
- Logitech ChillStream PS3 USB Gamepad

More incompatible adapters added

- Mayflash GameCube Controller Adapter (2-Port version) Only detected. Tried PC and Wii U modes.
- RetroDesign 9-Pin Adapter (AMIGA, SEGA, ATARI) . (Detected, but not working.)

From previous post:

Hi!

Hard to tell without trying, but so far there is no incompatible Logitech controllers.
Even if it works, i don't know if the Force Feedback will work.

I added this as compatible. This Keyboard/Mouse remote works on anything. Even game consoles.
