    Hello!

    First of all, I am very new to this so please keep that in mind.

    I am trying to use my wired Xbox 360 controller for my simple TV RetroPie setup. It is an Afterglow AX.1 controller (http://www.amazon.com/Afterglow-AX-1-Controller-Xbox-360-Green/dp/B003IU01TY) and works fine on my pc. Iv’e followed everything here: https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Setting-up-the-XBox360-controller and also tried countless other methods. So far it starts when the Pi boots up but the middle light never stops blinking and It doesnt do anything too. I currently have it plugged into a cheap Ebay USB hub that I have plugged into the Pi which is very similar to this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/High-Speed-4-Port-USB-Hub-2-0-PC-Laptop-Green-Yellow-/160792682143?pt=US_USB_Cables_Hubs_Adapters&hash=item256ffd9e9f&_uhb=1. I read somewhere that the problem is that the USB hub isnt powered and I believe its the problem. I found something cheap on Ebay that might work but what do you guys think? http://www.ebay.com/itm/330934822963

    Thanks everyone!

    Yes, the controller starts blinking but never stops and there’s an error that “No Xbox or Xbox 360 controller found”

    Its still not working though.

    could be a power issue, what is your setup, devices attached, output of power supply etc?

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

    just to add, if you have the Xbox pad plugged into non-powered usb it won’t be able to draw enough power, try plugging it directly into one of the Pi’s usb ports

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

    It sounds like the driver is not seeing the controller. Probably due to it having a different id. See if anything in this thread will help. https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/xboxdrv/uBmhdlphioU

    Yes, seeing as the controller isn’t the general Microsoft Xbox360 controller, I don’t think the driver is finding it.

    Unfortunately, nothing on the thread seemed to work but I think your on the right track.

    I got this controller, as it’s a cheap one at microcenter, and got it to work with my powered hub based solely on the retropie script xbox driver install. I haven’t tried it with a non powered hub, i figure with all that fandangled led light stuff it needs it. Note: it also recognizes it as an xbox 360 afterglow controller. it works with emulation station right off the bat, but when it comes to the emulators, retroarch’s config script instructions built into retropie aren’t working. step 3 is failing for me. I’m seriously stuck here, so if you DO get this working or have gotten it working, PLEASE pass it on to me, it’d be appreciated!
