Has anyone else experience this with the Series X...
I will turn the console on via controller (pushing the Xbox button in the middle). It'll power on the Xbox, but then the Xbox won't recognize the controller (as if it's not paired, and yet it literally just turned the Xbox on).
If I turn on a 2nd controller, it works fine, but to get the original one working I have to power cycle the whole console. I don't remember this issue happening with the One X, but this happens like once a day on the Series X now and it's annoying as hell. I keep 2 controllers with me just in case (and because I'm lazy).
My Xbone has done this since I got it in 2013. I can turn it on with the controller but on occasion it would immediately start flashing and I'd have to plug it in using a USB cable for it to register.
