(the xbox controllers are USB, so I would say that you should be able to extend them to the 15 foot range - buy 2 extenders and see if it works)

Also, does anyone know if its USB 1.1 or 2.0 in the xbox, or would that even matter?
edit: i found this thing http://cgi.ebay.com/...6707736959&rd=1 but if i;m not sure whether they'll be a delay when I press a button on the controller?

Plus any wireless controllers that support xbox live headsets are very expensive...
Anyone ever try repeaters?

1) The cost of the quality cables (1 component and 1 toslink) I use in my system over than length would cost almost as much as 4 wireless controllers. At the least, 4 repeater cables ($10 each) and 8 USB adapters (max $13 each) would be a wash in cost.
2) Asthetics. This is in a dedicated home cinema and having an xbox sitting in the room is not desired.
I currently run the controllers through a 2" conduit I have running through my seating riser to the equipment room, but it is too long.
Just wondered if anyone had used a USB repeater to increase the length. I did read that you cannot use a USB hub to extend the length because the controller already contains an internal USB hub (controller, memory slot, memory slot) and it doesn't work correctly if chained with another hub.
