    Hi everyone,

    hope you could help me with my problem…. I’m actually this freaked out and dont know where to look for erors anymore…

    I’ve set up RetroPie with the installation instruction on this wiki. Its works fine. I Already got 1 xbox 360 Wireless controller working (although like mentioned in the wiki) and already started a game. Everythings perfect.

    Now i tried to install a second Xbo 360 Wireless Controller. I plugged the wireless usb receiver in my pi and started it.
    No xbox controller is recognized. The “X” is blinking ==> not connected/recognized.

    If i remove the second wireless usb controller and reboot, my first Xbox Controller is recognized and i can play.

    I’ve got the following config:

    /etc/rc.local:

    #!/bin/sh -e
    #
    # rc.local
    #
    # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
    # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
    # value on error.
    #
    # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
    # bits.
    #
    # By default this script does nothing.
    
    # Print the IP address
    _IP=$(hostname -I) || true
    if [ "$_IP" ]; then
      printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP"
    fi
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 0 --led 2 --detach-kernel-driver --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 1 --led 3 --detach-kernel-driver --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    exit 0
    

    The steps i already did:
    1. Remove the entries in rc.local and reboot with only 1 inserted 360 usb wireless connector. then i used the command:xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 0 --led 2 --detach-kernel-driver --deadzone 4000 --silent & and the xboxdrv says “connected” and my xbox controller was recognized and i could game on.
    2. Remove the entries in rc.local and reboot with my 2 inserted 360 usb wireless cc onnectors. Then i used the same command as above and i received the error

    Try to run 'rmmod xpad' and then xboxdrv again or start xboxdrv with the option --detach-kernel-driver.
    

    Looking at dmesg, it shows that the pi recognizes both my xbox 360 controllers:

    You only need one wireless adapter plugged in, insert this in rc.local:

    
    fi
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 0 --led 2 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 1 --led 3 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    exit 0
    

    Reboot and both pads should connect (they need syncing first) and will be assigned seperate id’s

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    Hi trimmtrabb,

    thank you very much for your help…. i guess i was just too stupid to try with only 1 wireless adapter.
    Many thanks!
