Xbox wireless receiver

So i grabbed an Xbox wireless receiever last week – so i can play PC games with a 1/2 reasonable wireless controller… for those that are better with controller.

Plugged it in, no PNP recognition (and its an MS devce – thats kinda odd…) – so select the device driver manually as is documented about 1 million times around the web – but officially here…

ok, no worries…. sets up correctly, but any controllers you try to sync with it just continually try to sync and never make it…

Apparently there are no updates found via windows update for this either…  but if you want it to ever sync, you need to grab the drivers from here –

not difficult – but kinda annoying that not only is there no PNP for the device, but even once you manually force the correct driver, that updates are not found.
