  1. Xbox One controller pairing issues


    I've been attempting to pair my XBone controller via BT with my Windows 10 PC all night and I'm getting nowhere. I'm following the standard procedure; turn the controller on, press the pair button, go into Bluetooth settings via Windows, select Bluetooth, and wait. The controller just doesn't show up in the list of pairable devices. If it eventually *does* appear, that's only after I've shut the controller down for another reset attempt don't ask, it just pops up asking if I want to configure the device. Then it'll pair miraculously...but when I launch any game, the controller isn't detected

    :)

    Xbox One controller pairing issues

    Bluetooth Pairing - Xbox One Elite Controller

    Hi,

    I've got a new Alienware desktop running Win 10 Home x64. Bluetooth appears to be working, but I'm not getting the Xbox One Elite Controller in the list of available devices when I attempt the pairing. The light on the controller flashes normally when I
    press the pairing button, but on the PC, I'm only getting four or five generic 'unknown' devices. I've tried a few, but none will connect.

    To troubleshoot, I unplugged the power from the Xbox, just to make sure there wasn't a pairing conflict between the game console and Windows. Doesn't help. I've also tried pairing in the new Win 10 interface, as well as through NCPA.cpl.

    When I get home, I'm going to try pairing the controller with another computer, but I'm also interested in any suggestions this community can provide.

    Regards,

    Brad
