Hi, start with a new image of RetroPie 1.9.1 on your SD card:
Boot the Pi up and SSH in, then run:

sudo apt-get install xboxdrv

After it has installed run

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

You need to add this line:

xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 0 --led 2 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
sleep 1

just before exit 0

so it reads:

xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --wid 0 --led 2 --deadzone 4000 --silent & sleep 1
exit 0

Reboot and your pad should connect. If it doesn’t the 3rd party receiver may be incompatible. Assuming it does connect you can then follow the prompts on screen to input controls for Emulation Station. Then please follow post #2 in this thread to configure your Xbox pad:

That should get you up and running with the main emulators, hope this helps!
