Then I have a cord that connects my 5.8 to the base, and a chat cable that goes from 5.8 to my 360 controller. On Ps4, do I just need the turtle beach chat cable ?
The PS4 setup is the same as the PS3. You won't need the microphone cable from the RX unit to the controller like the 360 (the RX is the unit that connects to the headphones, the TX is your base). What you will need on the TX base station is what's called an Astro PS3 chat cable (in addition to the power source and optical in of course). Its a USB to either a 3.5 or 2.5 connector that inserts in the back of the TX unit (I think the port is labeled AUX, not sure...I'm writing this from work) with the USB end connected to the PS4. This is how they enabled USB chat on the PS4 (they use the mic cable on the RX unit for chat on the 360). If you have this cable, you won't need the microphone cable from controller to the RX unit like on the 360.
So it should be as easy as picking up an Astro PS3 chat cable. Unfortunately they do not make them anymore. Not even available on Amazon. However Electronic Tonic (who posted earlier in this thread) seems to have found a way to make the turtle beach chat cable work with it. I'm not sure how the connection works...but send him a message and I'm sure he can fill you in!
EDIT: He may be using the TB chat cable to go directly from the PS4 controller to the RX unit just like the 360, then telling the PS4 to route chat through the controller in the settings. Let us know what you find out!Edited by slyderulz - 1/14/14 at 8:15am
