Yes, thank you for confirming this for me. I saw the firmware update and decided to upgrade. I was able to connect the controller as a keyboard, but, like you all, wasn't able to get any input from it when connected. Downgrading back to 2.52 solved the issue.
Yes, thank you! I just got my SNES30 and immediately updated the firmware to 2.61 and I was never able to get it to pair with my Mac. I was afraid I would have to send it back but after reading this I downgraded and it works perfectly now.
