  1. Using TV remote on console not working


    I just got the new beta and in the CEC settings I see the use TV remote for console option. This is not working for me, is this working for other people? Also I have a Google chrome cast with Google TV remote and was wondering if this will work on the xbox as well?

    Several factory restores after accessory purchases

    Here's the latest on this. After days of troubleshooting over twitter with support, I was able to get the remote to work on the console in another room on a different tv. I then brought it back to my living room tv and set it back up and nothing again. It
    will work if I turn the console 90 degrees to the right but since the remote needs direct line of sight this is of no help. My question at this point is what could interfere with the xbox media remote that uses IR tech but with no other remote in my living
    room including a wii u controller to operate volume, a tv remote, and an Apple TV remote? I get that there is interference but why with a single remote out of 4 in the room?

    Question about upcoming Xbox one remote

    The official news post about the remote *only* says that Kinect is used for IR blasting your TV and your AV receiver. It doesn't say that Kinect is used to receive the remote's signals for controlling the console itself.

    Given that, and given that the console does have its own IR receiver, I'd assume that control of the console itself is direct using the remote. Kinect is just needed for TV/AV control, as the remote does not send signals to those directly.

    Remote > IR > Console = console control.

    Remote > IR > Console---Kinect > IR > TV & AV = TV & AV control

    Xbox 360 S remote

    Hey guys, I see that some are trying to get the remote to change channels on your tv. Well the media remote only controls the tvs functions of power on/off, volume up/down, mute and TV input.

    [/quote]

    Then why bother putting number buttons and a channel up/down button on the remote? I'm disappointed that I have to use two remotes for my TV/Xbox.

    @Turvey, which remote did you purchase that works on both your TV/Xbox? I have a Philips/White Console.

    XBox One S - PDP - Talon Media Remote, Can't program this receiver

    Hmmm, I'm using that exact same media remote for my living room console! Are you positive that the remote can do that? I can turn up the volume on my TV with the remote but not the volume of my external big speakers. Even with the TV volume i find the
    remote to be very unresponsive, takes multiple clicks to register or just won't work sometimes.

    XBox 360 media remote code for SamSung Hp-S5053

    Program the media remote for your TV

    Before your media remote can work with your television set, you need to program it for use with your particular brand of TV. There are two ways to program your media remote: manually entering your TV code or scanning to find your TV code.

    Note After 30 seconds of inactivity, the media remote will exit the TV programming mode. Pressing any button besides Select, 0–9, or Channel Up/Down returns the media remote to its original mode and ends programming mode. Now, take the batteries out of the
    remote for about 3 - 5 minutes to allow it to reset. From there replace the batteries in the remote and try the instruction that came with the remote (PDF). If that doesn't work then try to program the remote to a different tv to make sure the remote works
    properly. Please just remember to program the remote within 9 seconds to prevent the

    remote from resetting again in the middle of programming it.

    Watch the following video to see how to program the media remote for your TV.
