using ps3 remote play on sony vaio with ps3 controller.

by canthony8084 / November 13, 2011 6:16 AM PST

I live with a roommate who has an xbox and I have a playstation, the problem is, we only have one tv and the tv belongs to him so he gets the first pick. so I've been fighting for like 3 days to set my laptop up to be like a tv. I can get the remote play to work properly but I am having trouble getting a the ps3 controller to work at all with it. I've been trying to use MotioninJoy but I can't get any activity from the controller. is there any way to make this work? (the test inside of MotioninJoy shows everything to be functional so I don't understand the issue.
