Thrustmaster TX wheel on Nvidia ShieldTV difficulties.

It seems I am not able to make my racing wheel (Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition) work on my windows PC, connecting through a Nvidia Shield TV, and of course Virtualhere (Paid server version).
I tested the wheel connected straight to the PC, everything works great, drivers installed correctly.
But when I plug the wheel to the Shield, it gets recognized by Virtualhere, I see it on the client (PC) as a ''Thrustmaster FFB Wheel'', but windows tries to install the drivers and then says the drivers were not installed succesfully.
If I go to Devices and Printers, It is listed there saying it ''Needs troubleshooting'' The device status is: ''This device cannot start. (Code 10) ''.
I need help figuring out what might be causing that issue.

Thanks for your time, and for this awesome bit of software (if only I could make it work 100%..)

I also have a Thrustmaster TH8A Shifter plugged through the same Shield-Virtualhere-PC system and it works perfectly. So we know the connection actually works.

Thanks in advance,



Ok, in the virtualhere client, before you use the thrustmaster wheel, can you right click on it and select Custom Event Handler... and enter


then press ok. Now unplug and replug your wheel. Now try to use it via virtualhere. (You only have to do the above change once and its saved for future uses)


It works! 😊
I just had to stop using an OS from 2009 (Windows 7) and upgrade to Windows 10. Now it works perfectly.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

People, don't be like me, upgrade your OS, everything will be better 😉
