I've got a diNovo Mini worked perfectly with My HTPC. However if I try to connect it to my PS3 it won't work. I've switched the button from PC to PS3 at the back of Mini and pushed the connect button. It only works while I plug in the USB stick which comes with Mini. Obviously this is not suppose to work like this.
Does anyone get it to work with PS3 and how?

Same here, I bought 2 PS3 and 2 diNovo Mini just because of the fact that they were "PS3 compatible". And the manual says that "the USB receiver is not needed for PS3 operation".
Logitech support - we need some clarifications here. Immediately. Otherwise it's just a piece of other junk, dragging the brand further down.

OK. That was a pretty unbiased comment. I was a bit upset after spending too much money on this.
How do I pair the diNovo Mini with the PS3 without using the USB stick - as described in the manual?

Ok. Problem solved.
My bad (blush).
I thought things were supposed to work immediately.
After going to "Settings -> Accessory Settings -> Manage Bluetooth Devices" on the PS3 and scanning for the *third* time (and after pressing the red button under the battery hatch/concealment on the back of the Mini - it was found!
My bad as I said, no hard feelings.
But it should be described in the manual - since it does have that "PS3" switch and the console will most likely be the same the rest of its lifetime. At least on the support site "How to connect a PS3" .
Problem solved. Case Closed.

Thank you Imfs for coming up a solution. I've got exactly same feeling as yours. I'll try your solution tonight and let you know tomorrow if it's successful for me. (edit: your solution works!)
One more downside for this Mini device - the switch button for PC & PS3 is hiding inside the back cover so it's very inconvenient for operation. (edit: the bluetooth doesn't work after switched from ps3 to pc and from pc to ps3 again)
