Ok, that may sound confusing, but let me explain. I have two different Xbox 360 systems, and 3 controllers. The problem is, when my kids want to play Fifa 09 with me, we need all 3 controllers working on the same 360. So, I go get the controllers from the other room, and assign them to the 360 in the room we are playing in. Problem is, I don't know how to do this, without accidentally turning on the 360 in the other room (the one we aren't using).
Typically, the process of assigning a controller to another 360 is like this:
1. Take controller over to the 360 you want to assign it to
2. Turn on the 360 by hitting the power switch on the front of the 360
3. Press the guide button on the controller (big 360 button)
4. Press the sync button on the console, and the sync button on the controller
5. Wait a few seconds.
If you follow that, you can sync the controller very easily, the only downside, is the byproduct of the fact that when you hit that big guide button on the controller, it will also turn on the 360 system it was previously assigned to (if within wireless range), before syncing with the new 360.
Is there any way around this? Once in awhile, I will find myself forgetting about the other 360, and then later realizing that it was left on all day when nobody knew it.
