Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

Control you PS3 with the Wii U GamePad
Nearly useless, but funny. It's easy to perform. You need:

-Wii U GamePad
-HDTV, which is CEC-compatible

All you have to do, is to activate CEC on your TV (it's manual should explain how to do that) and your PS3 and connect both with the HDMI-cable. Configure the remote-control-function of the Wii U GamePad that you can use it instead of your standard TV-remote.
Now, when your PS3 is on and and displayed on the screen and you activate the remote function of the GamePad with the "TV"-button, the D-pad works like the arrowkeys, "A" like "Enter" or "OK" and "B" like "Back" or "Exit" on your TV-remote. Thanks to CEC, your TV will send this input via HDMI to the PlayStation, so your GamePad-D-pad works like the D-pad of the PS3-controller, "A" like "X" and "B" like the "O"-button. In my case, I can also boot the PS3 with CEC. Too bad, that the Sony-console needs a PS3-pad for gameplay... but listen to music or watching photos or videos works without any problems.
