  1. Does the One controller need line of sight to the console to work?


    Basically I would like to know, if I buy a One for my office, can I tuck it away somewhere.

    The setup. I'm at my desk facing forward. The desk is an L shape, so I sit at a bit of an angle, normally facing into the L like a normal L desk. To the left of the desk is a wooden/pressboard cabinet, the One could fit in any of the drawers. If I put
    it there, will the wireless controller work? What about if the drawer is open when using?

    Thanks

    :)

    Does OneGuide channel change need line of sight?

    Thanks. Seems I need to find an IR extension cable and run it from the Xbox to the STB in the equipment closet.

    Hi SinuousPillow23,

    No the controller doesn't need line of sight to work, and should work in the setup you mentioned.

    I would be concerned about airflow around the console if you used it in a draw though!

    It's all a mystery how the controller works, I can tell you it's very good at disconnecting frequently and randomly.

    Xbox One s controller just blinks after turning on console, have to pull power plug to re-sync

    Are you playing at a location where the controllers line of sight with the console is being blocked? Not that the controller necessarily needs direct line of sight, but it can objects like a desk or coffee table could be a potential culprit.

    360 remote

    Hey there Three! Just to confirm, you have the newly redesigned black remote, correct? With regards to the TV, does the remote do both power and volume for the device? With regards to your Xbox console, does it not do anything to control your console, or
    will it do some controls? Do you have a direct line-of-sight between the remote and the console, or is the console obstructed (ex. in a cabinet, etc)? Let me know, thanks!
