  1. Xbox One S - Media Remote Not Working


    I bought a second-hand Xbox One S off eBay as a temporary replacement for my Xbox One X as it needs to be returned for another repair... ANOTHER! Within 6 months of it's previous repair...

    Anyhoo, the Xbox itself is working fine, nothing wrong with it. With the exception of the Media Remote. I know 100% that the remote is working (I fired up the X and streamed to my PC and tested the remote)
    so that isn't the issue.

    My only guess is that the board with the IR receiver is faulty, but everything else on that board is working fine - Power button, power LED sync button etc. I have done a power cycle several times, with no
    success. Also changed the batteries of course.

    I've removed the board in question, but I cannot see anything obvious wrong with it. Looks fine to my eyes. I cleaned it with contact cleaner just in case, but no change.

    I'm assuming that all Xbox Ones will work with the Media Remote straight of the box. This being the case, I can only guess that the board is somehow at fault and will have to obtain a new one off eBay or something.

    OR... does anyone have any other ideas or theories? Thanks and thanks.

    QUICK EDIT: I set up the Xbox to control the TV power when I turn the Xbox on and off. This worked fine, the TV turned off when I turned the Xbox off and vise versa, so the IR part of the Xbox seems to be working perfectly fine. It's just
    the remote refuses to interact with the IR sensor. In other words... it can send but can't receive IR signals.

    I may get that PDP Talon media remote.

    :)

    Xbox One S - Media Remote Not Working

    Hi there XBX,

    Thanks for the reply. I understand there is an issue with the Xbox One S not compatible for the Media Remote. I recommend to try this article for further information:

    .

    Do you have the controller listed in the article?

    Let us know so we may further assist.

    Xbox One Media Remote Support

    It's not just a lack of support for the Xbox One Media Remote. I have a Logitech Harmony Remote that works with the Xbox One and it also doesn't work with the YouTube App. The only device that seems to work with the YouTube app is the controller. It's a
    shame since the Xbox One Media Remote works really well in other apps like Twitch,Crackle and Machinama.

    Having trouble getting the new Xbox 360 Media Remote to work with my Xbox 360 console.

    If this is the first time you've had/used an Xbox 360 Media Remote, you have to go to System Settings > Remote Control and change the setting from either "Windows Media Center" or "Both" (depending on which version of the Xbox Console you have) to "Xbox
    Remote". For some reason, the default setting is the WRONG one. That's most likely what's causing your remote to not work.

    If you ALREADY have it set to "Xbox Remote" and it still doesn't work, you may have a defective remote if it's an official Microsoft Xbox 360 Media Remote.

    If it's a 3rd Party remote, made by a different brand, in all likelihood you've wasted your money on a remote that doesn't actually work for the Xbox 360. The only 3rd party remote I recommend and will vouch for is a very hard to find European model, the
    Snakebyte Media Remote. It's the only one that gets good reviews. When I wanted a black Xbox 360 Media Remote with Backlit Keys, I tracked one down on eBay, and I can personally attest that it works every bit as well as the official Microsoft
    remotes. But good luck finding one, they are very scarce right now. I consider myself very lucky to have managed to track one down. ^_^
