    How to replicate the problem: I have tried connecting the xbox controller numerous times. A couple times it has connected and worked great. If I restart the system it does not work. I have tried uninstalling xpad and reinstalling it, updating it, even tried the xboxdvr to no avail. It is sporadic.

  • To add to this I was able to get it connected again. It worked and I tested a couple games. I restarted the Pi and it would not work. If I shut down the pi and turn it back on, then turn the controller back on it connects. If I go to config to setup Joypad order it only shows '4' xbox controllers even though only 1 is connected. I shut down a couple more times like normal and booted up and controller connected. Now I shut down and boot the system back up and controller does not connect. Just blinks. When it does connect it will show player 1.
