    petrockblog, thank you for the quick reply!

    I have the ControlBlock revision 1.x, so i have two additional questions.
    Does Revision 1 need the 3.3V pin too? Or any other pins? (GPIO 04, pin 07 as clock for example?)
    I have tested it without the controlers, (only pin 2,3,4,5,6,9,11,12) and the powerswitch function seems to work…

    Also, what happens when i connect another device to the 5V pins of the PI?
    (I plan to connect a small fan for the cpu for overclocking)

    PS: keep up the awesome work!

    I have finally solved my issue.
    There was a problem with one of the GPIO caples i used. I switched it out for another one, now it works as intended.
    Slipperypickle, you should check your connections as well ;)

    I can confirm slipperypickle’s issue, in my case the connection between the LED and the board was not done properly.

    Haju, i think i have enabled it. My controlblockconfig.cfg looks as like that:

    Is that correct?

    Hey Thanks for your reply!
    At least i’m not the only one expiriencing this.
    In the meantime i have reinstalled RetroPie (now version 3.3) and the driver, but without any changes to the problem.

    The weird thing is, that i can switch the pie on the first time, so there should be atleast some communication going on or am i mistaken?
    I also checked and the driver seems tho have generated the config file, but when i try to uninstall it via the commands mentioned on the GitHub page here it tells me that it can’t uninstall because “ther is no such file or directory”.

    All in all you’re right, lets wait for more ideas.
