How to connect an Xbox 360 controller to an Microsoft surface RT

The original post is a little silly because you don't need to go through any of that to get it to work, it's pretty much plug and play...

Yeah I had to go through this to get mine to work, but mine's a cheap Chinese imitation one off eBay. It looks identical, and has almost identical packaging.

Anyway, it works - been impressing people at work with it :)

I tried everything with the Charge and Play cable and even thought the cable was recognized by the Surface the controller wouldn't work at all. Every time I turned on the controller my Xbox in the basement would turn on. I ended up buying a wireless receiver and everything works great.

You do realize the play and charge kit is built to charge your controller? You can't plug it in to your PC and play with it.
