Controller hijacks my audio

  • Hi
    Ive been tinkering on the RetroPie for a while, all good so far, but this latest question has stumped me now.
    I bought a new controller, a PS4 third party wired controller. After plugging it in, the audio doesn't play through the audio jack. I have another controller exactly the same kind, have been using it for a while with no issue. It seems like when I plug the second one in (in the "player two" USB slot) this happens.

    I've gone through all the discussions I could fi d and do all the audio settings suggested. But I suspect it's a specific issue with the controller in that second USB slot. When I go to RetroPie settings (RetroPie setup> configuration/tools >audiosettings >mixer) it shows that the "PS4 fun controller" is the card. Even if I select another sound card here, it is just back to the controller again (like if I exit and then go back to check) I choose the 3.5mm jack in the menu anyway buy and do the same in the few other places you can choose this option, but to no success.

    I can play sound through the controller (plugging the audio cable into it) but I want it to work through the pi's audio jack.

    Any clever ideas about what is happening?
