  1. Found the fix. You need to update the controllers firmware with an Xbox One. The windows app does not work and it must be done through an Xbox One. I used a neighbors since I don’t own one but you can try a gamestop as well. After updating it connects and works fine.

  2. I have the same problem. Steam link shows a connection but the controller continues to blink. Everything is up to date. Very aggravating.

  3. “After the controller’s light stops blinking you can just start playing.”
    Mine is not doing that at all. It keeps blinking even though my Steam link detects it, and I connect to it. You have to turn on the controller first, don’t you (press the big X button)? If I press my connect button first (located on top of controller, by the left shoulder button) nothing happens.
    What exactly am I doing wrong?
