    I have the same issue, I know in Left 4 Dead if you quickly (and i mean REALLY quickly) unplug and plug in the controller immediantly at the end of the level load screen, it will take player 2 for split screen (google it for full instructions)

Alright, I've been playing around with it and i found a way.
You'll need to be pretty quick with it. The best way i found is to hit the xBox button, then quickly unplug the controller and plug it into another port.
(You will have to press the xBox button, it will give you a better chance at getting this, it'll tie up the driver for a split second)
This will get you over to player 2. If it doesnt work the first time, try it again a few times, switching ports each time.

    After a restart and further testing, i would like to clarify my submission. You will need to wait for the controller to take its player slot (the controller indicator light) before switching it to another port. It turns out it is not entirely neccesary to press the Xbox button, but i still reccomend it.

    the best way is to use nulldc - dreamcast emulator or anything that use the x360 controller open it plug the controller plugin use the x360 controller boot the emulator (even without game just bios)

Game Mat as second player? how do I make it the first player


Turn off both controllers, then start the one you want to use as first, first. If that still fails, you can turn off both controllers then resync the first one using the sync button on the top of the controller and front panel of the xbox. If you are using a wired controller, you will most likely need to turn your xbox off then on, and connect the controller you want to use as first player, first.

My xbox 360 wired controller keeps on disconnecting its in the right way and i dont know wats wrong with it


There might be a problem with (a) the wire or (b) the actual controller. I would suggest testing the wire with another controller, if it works you know it's the actual controller that isn't working. If it still doesn't work after changing controller, you know it's the wire.
Another thing it might be is the USB port on your Xbox 360. Try changing it to another one if the other two suggestions don't work.

Neither of my xBox 360 wireless controllers will sync with my 360 console. I have tried both contollers with a variaty of battery packs and they still wont sync but i have no problem with my wired...


Remove the batteries from both controllers, and unplug the Xbox for a minute. Now turn the Xbox on by the power button on the console, Install the batteries in your controllers, and hit the Console sync button first, then hit the little sync button on top of the controller.
If this does not work, you can purchase the wired charge pack that you must plug in to the USB port of the console to charge, and this will sync as your wired controller does. When it is synced unplug the wire from the controller and voila. Remember, the charger pack will look like this.

Wireless controller position


Try this:
Under heading "How can I change the screen positions for my wireless controllers?"
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/resources/supportfaq.htm

To reset the screen configuration for an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 console and any connected Xbox 360 wireless controllers.

    (To turn off your wireless controller, power down the system and wait for the lights around the controller's Xbox Guide button to disappear.)
  2. Manually turn on your Xbox 360—don't use your controller's Xbox Guide button.
  3. Press the connect button on the front of your console. This is the small button just to the right of (or below, if your console is on its side) the port for Memory Unit B. The lights around the console's power button will flash as the console searches for a wireless controller.
  4. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button to turn on the wireless controller that you want to assign to slot one.
  5. Once the controller is on and the lights are still circling the power button on the console, press your controller's connect button, located just to the right of the charge port.

    When the lights on your controller stop spinning, the wireless controller is configured to slot one and the upper-left quadrant light will glow.
  6. Select the controller you want in slot two and repeat steps 4 and 5. You can configure up to four wireless controllers.

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears


Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.
