Yea, my first try. The controller is working and responsive so I'm guessing it's half synced if that's a thing.
The problem starts when it starts to blink and sometimes shuts down. And if it doesn't shuts down the blinking is very distracting.

That sounds like a low-battery problem to me.

Have you tried a different USB port?

Batteries are new from the box. Tried 3 ports, same thing. Maybe I'll try to install the win7 drivers.

I have a "ripped off" xbox wireless connector. Hence, the OS does not auto-detect it.
I downloaded the Windows 7 Drivers (64-bit for my machine) and installed them accordingly. Used the Microsoft Class driver and boom, no problems so far. Maybe that's what you should do.

No blinking lights or connecting dropouts.

Tested on Windows 7 (64-bit) + Windows 8 (64-bit) DP - RTM.

My official receiver picked up fine in Devices under Windows 8 Pro x64 - no extra drivers were needed.

My 3rd party receiver on the HTPC (Server 2012 x64) required installing the Windows 7 x64 package (Xbox360_64Eng.exe) then force installing the driver from the installation directory @ "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Xbox 360 Accessories\Xusb21.inf"

If you have issues with pairing, use the play 'n' charge cable as it instantly pairs to Xbox 360 or PC when the controller is plugged in.
