What is the little tab next to the right thumbstick on my controller?
The tab located to the bottom right of your right analog stick is referred to in your manual as the 'Audio Function Button', the purpose of this button is to control your game and chat audio when using a gaming headset plugged into the 3.5mm plug on the bottom of your Afterglow Prismatic XBOX One controller.

Does this controller work on a PC?
The PDP Xbox One controllers can work on a Windows PC. If the controller does not work immediately upon connecting to a PC, then you may need to update the official Microsoft drivers in your PC through Windows Update. The controllers work plug 'n' play with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.
If the controller still does not work after making sure Windows is fully up-to-date, or if you are using an older version of Windows, you may need to install the drivers that you can download below.
(The drivers below are both for Windows 32, and 64 bit versions. You can install the 64 bit version of the driver on your 64 bit windows instance, and the same goes for the 32 bit version!)
My thumbsticks seem to be drifting/moving without me touching them. How can I fix this?
If you find that your controller's thumbsticks are showing movement without being touched, your controller may need to be recalibrated. Please follow the provided instructions below to re-calibrate your controller.
1. Unplug the USB-Cable from your Controller.
2. Make sure your PC or Console is powered on and plug the USB-Cable into your PC or Console.
3. Hold the DOWN button on your D-Pad
4. Plug the smaller end of the USB-Cable into your controller.
5. You now should see 2 LEDs light up (if you have an older controller, the controller will vibrate) one above the Home Button and one on the function button. The function Button is located at the right Analog Stick.
6. You can now let go the DOWN button on your D-Pad.
7. Press A on the controller.
8. The LED lights will power off.
9. Fully rotate both joysticks in a complete clockwise motion and pull each trigger fully (LT and RT)
10. Press DOWN on the directional pad (D-Pad) again to finish the calibration
Additionally, you can check the settings using the PDP Control Hub App, which you can download from the Xbox/Microsoft Store for free.
This will ensure that the latest version of the firmware will be installed on the controller and you will also get the option to run diagnostics.
In the PDP Controller Hub app, please do the following:
1. Launch the app and select your controller with your mouse or by pressing A.
2. Select "Diagnostics" on the left panel and select "Recalibrate" on the boom of the Diagnostics options.
3. Select "Recalibrate Triggers" by pressing A or clicking on it.
4. Select "Start Calibration".
5. Press the triggers slowly, then fast, then alternate between the two triggers. Do this at least 3 times per trigger.
6. Press "A" once you have pressed the triggers multiple times to complete the calibration process.
7. Test your controller.

Has of today, the links above don't work for my Kinetic Wired Xbox Series X PC Controller. However, I found another paper where it works.
Does this controller work on a PC? – PDP North America Support (zendesk.com)
I installed the PDP controller hub, which continuously makes my controller jump or cycle through all available fields. This affects the Xbox game bar, and the in-game selections menu - it constantly cycles through all game options. I installed the suggested driver - it recognizes the controller but, windows also picks up an unknown USB device. I then removed the driver and controller hub and it's still doing this field cycling unless I totally disconnect the PDP controller. Now I'm trying to get it back to where it was just a connected controller and everything worked as expected.
Does anyone know what registry entries PDP controller hub adds so I may remove them? or some other possible fix that might make my controller fields stop cycling endlessly - or reset the controller to default without the PDP controller hub?
My rgb lights don’t work
links dont work. great tech support
BUGGY Controller! The HUB is glitchy and PDP Support knows this! These PDP controllers are designed to go buggy after some time; no wonder why there is a Controller HUB to attempt to fix the BUGGY CONTROLLER.
I am frustrated now every day having to recalibrate this controller in the HUB. I can't play my games requiring a controller setup; for some, I just prefer using the controller.
This happened after a month of purchasing this controller at Best Buy. My fifteen days are up to return and replace this controller. I am stuck with a glitchy and BUGGY controller. Street Fighter 6 BETA# 2 is Dec. 16. I came close to slamming this trash, SCAMMING controller -- the BETA is the only thing stopping me from placing it in my driveway and driving over it with my car tires. I unplugged it and tucked it in my drawer until BETA# 2 in hopes I'll be patient again to spend an entire FUKCING DAY recalibrating this cursed PDP SHIT SCAM CONTROLLER AGAIN. I hope PDP FUCKING GOES OUT OF BUSINESS. YOU FUCKING SCAMMING FUKERSSS!!!
I have win7, i install PDP Controller Drivers (32 bit and 64 bit).zip but my controller wont work.
any other option?

I keep getting the "Server error" message and am unable to use the Control HUB. Can anyone help.
wasting your time writing in here they have shit customer support. They ignore all your emails.
How do I order my warranty ticket? My controller has a faulty RT
my analog sticks don't work properly and I've had for like 1.5 months. the older products work better even old Xbox one controller (which I've had for like 4 years) work better then this.
sorry I had to say it
You are going to need to call and get a problem ticket for your issue, once you have gone through the trouble shooting steps, they should replace the controller. Make sure you have a copy of your purchase.
the app just killed my controller... im so mad, A button decided to stop working , tried the app to check what was the problem , now all my buuton are dead after i put everything back to default... 6 months controller...
I wish i looked at these comments before i bought the BFG, bout a hundred+ $ roller, just to have issues in both sticks. Then sent emails that were never replied to, had to CALL to get a response and start an RMA or return if a miracle happens, and its been jumping thru hoops to get warranty service. had tot record gameplay of the issues occuring...never heard of such a condition. Ludacris. Save your money.
WHATEVER YOU DO DONT DROP YOUR CONTROLLER.
The Left button and right buttons above the triggers are put together VERY VERY cheap inside.
Dropped my controller once. It must have hit the left button because it stopped working. I unscrewed the back, opened it, and a very tiny , VERY THIN piece of plastic fell out.
Under a bright magnified light, I saw that the little piece of plastic was the support to hold another very small piece of plastic arm, which pressed the button.
That tiny arm cracked right in half.
After an hour of microsurgery I was able to construct my own version and superglue a much stronger brace and arm.
About a month later the same thing happened to the other side.
Very VERY cheaply made.
Before this one I had a PowerA that the left joystick went haywire. These look identical in the package at the store, but the audio button on this one ( PDP) , wasn't the same. I didn't have the volume booster.
Dont like these AT ALL. WONT EVER GET ANOTHER.
Definitely a complete of money.
NO KIDDING .....
Not two minutes after my FIRST review, I picked up my controller to play Hitman3.
The left joystick movement on screen went ZING to the right without touching it.
Everything I did it, it just kept going right.
I had wobble the stick real hard like 50x to stop it
THIS THING IS LESS THAN 6 WEEKS OLD.
Exceptionally Wretched assistance and truly disappointed. I needed assistance obtaining the code for an Xbox Ultimate one-month subscription. I bought a PDP controller yesterday and am waiting for the code via email. I've never encountered such poor customer service or a pitiful company policy with such a lack of concern for the customer. It appears to be a waste in the event that cash buying regulator from you. We are forced to give your business a poor review as a result of this. Plz don't purchase any of their product to avoid worst customer service.
