connecting one wireless device to more than one usb receiver

Hi all. I use a retropie set up to play old games and have a wireless controller that I got from new egg... what I would like to do is be able to set up another wireless receiver for the controller so, since I have 3 separate retropie set ups, I would be able to put a usb receiver in each so all I have to do is bring the controller to which ever retropie I am using at the time. The Controller reads as an Xbox controller it would seem... Any ideas on how to either program the receivers... or pair the controller to more than one receiver? thanks.

what wireless controller from new egg?

Is this for a mouse, or gamepad? I can in Linux using Solaar pair up to 6 devices to the same receiver. Not sure several receivers can be paired to a single device, but probably if each receiver is a separate computer, or maybe even a virtual system on a single computer with the host OS, less sure on that latter.
