    [Problem] using media remote to change volume on soundbar


    I bought a MartinLogan Motion Vision sound bar and have it setup to be managed by my Xbox One. When I turn on my Xbox, it turns on both my TV and soundbar as well as turns it off. All the features seem to work except adjusting the volume while in a game
    or video app using the media remote. If I want to turn the volume up/down, I have to exit the app completely and then I am able to adjust the volume.

    Anyone else run into this? Any solution?

    :)

    Media Remote

    I think I have the same or similar issue. What's weird is that my Philips HTL2160 soundbar works great using the Kinect voice volume commands but not with the Media Remote. If I use the volume button on the remote my soundbar blinks like something is happening,
    but the volume never changes. Yet, the mute button on the remote works fine. Again, the voice commands work fine for volume. Weird. Anyone find a solution?

  3. Media Remote doesn't control soundbar (Volume or Mute)

    I recently bought a Sony Soundbar HTCT770. I followed the appropriate instructions to connect the soundbar via HDMI to my cable box, xbox and TV. I collaborated the settings accordingly. Initially I tried to used the AV guide to automatically collaborated
    the settings but when the Xbox sent the signal to the soundbar, nothing happened. After several minutes of going through the guide I decided to enter the code manually. I selected Sony and then entered the model number. The Xbox then recognized the model number
    and I selected it.

    Now the xbox can power on (not off) the sound bar, but when I try to adjust the volume using the media remote...nothing. When I try to use the kinect to adjust the volume..nothing. I can still watch my TV and change channels with the remote and one guide
    accordingly but I can't change the volume.

    I want to be able to connect my soundbar with my system and be able to control it using my media remote.

    Programming media remotes.

    Hello. If you can control your soundbar's volume using your TV remote, then use the TV code for your TV on the Xbox 360 remote and see if it works. I have linked to the appropriate pages for the NEWER remote.



    B&W (Bowers and Wilkins) are NOT a listed manufacturer under the codes section. If you spent $2,000+ on a B&W Panorama Soundbar, it might be a better idea to spend a couple hundred on a better Universal Remote such as the Harmony Line from Logitech that
    has a wide list of supported brands and learning functionality.



    Xbox Media Remote:



    Setup Page:
    support.xbox.com/.../media-remote


    Codes:
    download.microsoft.com/.../Xbox_360_Media_Remote_New_TV_Codes.pdf






    Based on the information I found about your specific soundbar it has the capability to be controlled by your TV's remote control assuming your TV supports those features. If you have the capability to use your TV remote to control the volume of your soundbar,
    then it's possible that the TV code for your TV can be used for this soundbar via the Xbox 360 media remote.



    Even if there was a Bowers and Wilkins code for this remote, you would lose the ability to control your TV as you can only program 1 device at a time for this remote.

    Can I connect Xbox One directly to a sound bar?

    I also have my soundbar hooked up thru an optical cord to my Xbox1, with a subwoofer running thru the soundbar. I have been unable to get voice commands to work to control volume but the sound does play, but I must use the soundbar remote to change the volume.
    Which is a little disappointing!!

    Xbox One Media Remote Volume Problems

    Some more information:

    If I remove my Sony soundbar from my device list on my One, the Media Remote controls the TV volume flawlessly. It also controls the cable box flawlessly. So it's some sort of issue with the soundbar.

    Smart Glass works great and my soundbar turns on and off with my system without fail, so I know the IR blaster works and is set properly for it.

    But when I try and specifically control me soundbar with my media remote, it only works in strange places in the room. Within 5 feet or past 15, or up against the wall in front of the receiver.

    It sounds like the Kinect IR signals are being interfered with somehow by the remote IR signals..

    Xbox Mute needs to be sent twice to Samsung HW E350

    I want to bring this back from the dead. I have a samsung hw-f450za, and an LG TV. Xbone elite is able to control my satellite receiver and tv no issues. Everything is connected via HDMI. I tend to use my xbox media remote to control tv, volume, etc.
    i have to hit the volume, mute buttons twice to change it. problem is of course, when turning the console on and off, tv turns off, sat box turns off, but soundbar doesnt. also, through kinect commands, i have to say commands for volume and mute twice in
    quick succession.

    any fixes for this?
