Yeah, im talking about using the Xbox 360 Wireless USB Receiver and Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with it.

It would be really useful for navigation and playing with emulators.

I've got a Xbox 360 MCE remote how do I use that with OpenELEC?

What I wanted was the 360 game pad and chat pad so I could do anything really, in terms if browsing searching etc etc.

don't know if it works on the pi itself, but it was the first hit in google for "openelec xbox 360 controller" and might be a good point to start

Yeah i been reading it for many hours with little luck.

I tried modding the files, that was the easy bit.
Then i made a new md5 checksum for the modded archive.
Then i tried to compile, it overwrote my md5 checksum file with the original, then obviously the hash check failed.

Now i trying the patches posted half way down the thread. Ive put the patch files in /packages/mediacenter/xbmc/patches.

Then i ran make clean, then i ran the usual make command, give it a couple of hours and we'll see if that works.

It won't work because SDLJoystick isn't used by OpenELEC on RPi according to sraue.
