hi everyone, happy new year. need help-bought my son steam link for christmas so he could play games in his room ---run off computer in the living room. bought on amazon.com thanks to deal here, but also bought another through game. son opened amazon one and it has many different plugs. uk one has 2 holes in the bottom for something to go into it but there is nothing in the box that matches. have plugged the hdmi cable into steam link and his tv---can anyone advise what else we need to do-or are we doing that correctly? thanks in advance kim

take the adaptor pull off the 2pin, get the uk 3 pin plug it into the adaptor

unless you plan to move to another country you can throw away all the 2 pins

Just to confirm: You bought from Amazon.com; not Amazon.co.uk?

Does the product box contain all these components?

Then, as iShoey mentioned, decouple the US 2-pin adapter from the main body of the AC/DC block (top left of the above image), & connect the block to the UK 3-pin adapter (second left of the top row).

​i believe you will need the wireless USB adaptor for an xbox 360 controller....but I could be wrong.

a wired controller definitely works.

​ it should work if you've got a plug and play kit it should work

thanks everyone for your help---i have it as far as the set up page but wireless controller didn't work-so might have to buy a steam controller or wired controller-will try keyboard first to get it up and running---really need an idiots guide

i would recommend using a ps4 controller works wirelessly and once connected you can always connect it by pressing the ps button. also valve has added the controller customisation for tthe ps4 controller so its epic

​I personally wouldn't recommend the Steam controller, I find it quite awkward to use.
