    Yeah, I have the same problem. I've tried replacing the batteries, moving any mirrors, metal objects, everything. But the green light just blinks and blinks and does not connect. Anybody have any suggestions other than the lame xbox 360 site??

Make sure you have pressed both of the pairing buttons, one of the front of the 360 just below the disc drive and the one on the remote to the right of the left trigger, this will put them into pairing mode and after about 5-15 seconds they should go solid signalling that they are connected.
