Have The VitaDock and your PS Vita on the same network and use Molecule And SSH over files. Attach a thumb drive or HDD storage to your VitaDock and you can manage your games and files with the dock itself.



Name: vitadock

Note the VitaDock is also a BT Receiver/Speaker, and will act as such sending sound from a device that is connected via BT to your tv (tested with iPhone and Android phone).

Note the BT on the vita is old, the closer the vita is to the dock the better the sound quality.


Is there latency?

Yes very minimal to none, and I would not use it for a fps competition, but I was able to play Dragon's Lair with a PS4 controller. Watch Test Video

What Pi can I use to build the VitaDock?

Pi4b, Pi3b/b+/a+ have all been tested and work. This has been fully tested by Crash on the pi3b+ and the pi3a+ with a "Fat" PS Vita and Xerpi's 1.4 UCDC and his PS4 controller plugin from auto plugin vpk. This image has also been tested by M0tie with a "Slim" Vita with a pi4b and a pi3b (with a dongle) and the same plugins.

Can I use a Vita Dock with a capture card?

Yes you can, you can use it without a tv and directly liknked to the capture card. You can record or live stream to your preffered streaming platform. VitaDock Live Stream test with Mic

Note: I would use a BT dongle if you are going to live stream, the sound quality is a bit better but not required.


Thank you M0tie for coming back and helping me with this final image release.

Huge Thank You to the original VitaDock team: Bu (m0tie), ZoidBerg, and his wife Si (icon and video), David-OX, SilentNight and Crash.

Special Thanks to Xerpi (UCDC_UVC plugin, DS3 and DS4 plguins) and TheFlow (MiniVitaTV). For with out their work none of this would be possible.
