Default 8100 and PS2 interference...

Please Login to Remove!

Just noticed this, was playing FF X-2 on PS2 with the wired factory controller, and had the browser on my BB loading a page. Well I touched the BB to the controller, because it was fight time, anyway the controller just starts running amuck. Just like I was randomly pushing buttons. But when a webpage is already loaded, it doesn't do it. Only when a page is loading. It would make more sense if it were a wireless controller, but a wired one? Anyway, don't know if anyone else has had that happen, just thought I'd tell about it, because it seemed kinda cool. Oh yeah, wirelessly posted...

punky, it is very likely caused by the RF noise created by the data stream to and from the BB when data is actively transmitting. Same as when you hold your BB near a radio or other device with a speaker in it.
