Control tv volume with xbox one controller

My XBOX properly detects my tv and transforms it on/off instantly but currently I desire to manage the volume and see if it functions. I don't have actually kinect but xbox assistance is stressing the fact I carry out need a kinect for the volume controls to work-related, is this accurate?

I believed the XBOX ONE S had an IR blaster integrated so I don't require a kinect.

Are you making use of voice commands? If you don't want to acquire a Kinect, you can use a headcollection linked to your controller to usage Cortana to adjust the volume. If you don't want to perform that then you can use the Xbox app on Windows 10 or on your phone to manage the volume.


A bit blaster to your TV would certainly execute it. I bought an IR repeater which shoots it out the front of my cabinet.


Yes the Xbox One S has a developed in blaster and NO you do not require Kinect, what you may find is that its not using the best remote code for your TV.

It might well detect your TV yet what you will discover is that tright here can be a number of different remote code that regulate it.

Example my Xbox can detect my samsung with out me having to enter the model and so on yet the code it supplies by default will not turn it off only on and also execute the volume, yet I discovered that by acquiring it to try a different code it operated perfect for whatever.

So your finest bet is to run the remote setup aget and also when it does its turn on or off little bit select NO this method it will certainly try a various code.

And you will certainly likewise need either the media remote (as it has actually the Volume buttons on it), or a headcollection for cortana voice control or the mobile Xbox application.

You need to buy an IR extender cable and run it from your Xbox to the sensor on your TV. Or buy a kinect.
