Hello everyone, first time here
Last week my gamepad (a SteelSeries Stratus Duo) stopped working, this was after working for some time out of the box.
After plugging it in, the gamepad starts flashing and does not seem to do anything.
evtest shows no activity when pushing buttons:
Select the device event number [0-29]: 6 Input driver version is 1.0.1 Input device ID: bus 0x3 vendor 0x1038 product 0x1430 version 0x111 Input device name: "SteelSeries Stratus Duo" Supported events: Event type 0 (EV_SYN) Event type 1 (EV_KEY) Event code 272 (BTN_LEFT) Event code 273 (BTN_RIGHT) Event code 274 (BTN_MIDDLE) Event code 275 (BTN_SIDE) Event code 276 (BTN_EXTRA) Event type 2 (EV_REL) Event code 0 (REL_X) Event code 1 (REL_Y) Event code 8 (REL_WHEEL) Event code 11 (REL_WHEEL_HI_RES) Event type 4 (EV_MSC) Event code 4 (MSC_SCAN) Properties: Testing ... (interrupt to exit) <blank>
dmesg output after plugging it in seems to show that a mouse driver is being loaded instead of xpad.

Any help with this would be great!
