    Must-have if you're using Xbox as a Media Extender

    Posted
    MikeDFWTX

    This remote is a must-have if you’re using a Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender. The remote feels solid, has buttons that light up, and uses standard AA batteries (which are included). Programming it to your TV really is easy – I had to use the auto scan feature since the code for my Vizio TV was not listed – and programmed it in less than 5 minutes. The only negative I see is that there are minimal controls for your TV, the biggest being no sleep button. But if you’re looking to control the power and volume of your TV in conjunction with controlling the Xbox as a Media Extender, this remote will do the job nicely.

    If you own a TV and a XBOX 360 this is perfect 4u

    I would have to say this is a remote to own if you have a TV and a XBOX 360. You can control the entire dashboard with this remote. You can even skip/pause/stop/play/repeat songs as your playing a game "without even opening your guide screen". Use this also to control your PC. control DVD'S on your XBOX 360, anything you can do with the 360 controler you can do with this. You can even play "some" games with this remote (mostly games like uno, poker games etc) Also, if you have input channels on your TV like mine (input 1,2,3 comp 1,2,3 so on and so on) this will work perfect for that too. One more thing, yes the ENTIRE remote lights up, every single button you see on the remote will light up.

    Gets the job done

    If you are looking to control your Xbox like a DVD-player, this is a good choice. We use it to watch Netflix and use the Media Center function. One press of the little Windows Media button and it loads an interface that looks just like the Windows Media Center interface in Windows 7. If you have a Windows 7 PC on your network that runs Media Center, you can access the same media files from your Xbox. Sadly, the sensor is line of sight, so you have to point the remote directly at the console for it to work. Also, occasionally you really have to press the buttons hard for it to register. It gets the job done, but there are probably better models out there.

    Good Buy

    If you tend to watch movies, listen to music, or download video content on xbox live this remote really comes in handy. If you're listening to music while playing a game you can still control the music with the remote without interrupting the game. It comes in handy all the time. A few down sides is that it only programs to the television not surround sound, and the input button may not work depending on your television. I know that it's just the tv that I'm using right now because I have used the button on my older tv. All in all it was a good buy.

    Better than expected

    I bought this because my 360 recently became my primary DVD player. I wanted something easier to use than the standard 360 controller and it works much better than expected. None of the lack of connectivity problems that others reported. I also programed it to work with my tv and it actually works better than the remote that came with the tv. If you're looking for something to play DVDs on your 360 and control your tv definitely buy this. It's a great deal.

    Great Remote

    I bought this remote mainly to use while watching DVD's and Netflix movies on the XBox and it works great. The remote was easy to program to control my TV and you can completely control the XBox with this remote. I wouldn't use the remote for gaming, but it is great for watching DVD's and Netflix. The remote IR range is equal to any other remote I have, I don't have to point it directly at the XBox as others have complained. Its a great add-on for $20!

    XBOX 360 universal remote

    Great item here. Now I have one remote to control my TV and XBOX plus it will also work with my computer which is a bonus. Set-up was not too difficult though it did take a little bit to find the correct input code for my TV since the company has about 20 codes it can use. Other than that I have not had an issue. Works great and has made my life much easier. I would definitely recommend this product.

    Great remote! I was so sick of using the xbox controllers for Netflix on Live... I would constantly hit the bumper buttons by accident and fast forward my movies! This remote is perfect because it eliminates that problem... I suppose the price could be a little better, it is a remote control... and you also need to aim it at the xbox unlike the controllers, but overall, a fabulous item.

    Great Xbox Remote

    This remote is simple and easy to use. There were some issues with this remote learning my Toshiba LCD control codes, but overall it works good. Some of the TV features are not available. I would have thought a 2 1/2 year old LCD HD television would have been in the standard codes & have all features available. Still it does it's job, but next time I'll invest in a Logitech Harmony One. This will get the work done for now.

    Now that I know how to use this thing its amazing. It was a cheap buy and works fairly well. I really like how it lights up and can control your TV. It was also pretty easy to set up. Gives total control over dashboard and music when you have your ipod and such. The only thing I couldnt figure out at first is that you need to press the tv button to switch inbetween the tv and xbox. Great buy.

    Too many remotes, this will help

    This remote reduces the number in my living room from four to two. The only thing that i need it to do that i haven't got it to do is control my old school surrond sound box. This remote works great for using media center and also for downloading things off marketplace. Most definately one of the best accesories that i've purchased for my 360 yet

    Good remote for movie watchers

    Originally my xbox 360 was also my only dvd player and because I wasn't a fan of having a menu pop up when I used the controller for dvd's I bought this. It's a great remote and it serves it's purpose. Now that I have a separate dvd player it just sits around so this is really only for those who use their 360 as their sole dvd or hd dvd player.

    Not good for surround sound

    Posted
    Happysox

    This remote will only program to a TV. And let me tell you, if you are playing the sound from your 360 through your TV you are truly missing out on some great surround sound. Anyway the remote will not control a stereo receiver so keep this in my if you are thinking about purchasing this.

    nice accessory for Xbox 360

    Very attractive remote, light weight, very easy to use, lights up which is very good for when your in the dark. Works great on Xbox dashboard. Better to use than controller because it very straight forward and save battery life. A must have.

    Pretty good product although not needed.

    Pretty good remote control but I don't think that you absolutely need it. Some times i would be asleep and roll onto the controller and accidentally hit a button and it would turn the 360 on. If you need a nice universal remote then you should get it.

    This works perfectly for DVD control and for general navigation (e.g., choosing a Netflix movie on Xbox Live. Seems to have all the functionality of a controller, plus all of the A/V controls. Lightweight and easy to hold.

    Excellent purchase if you have Media Center with Windows Vista Premium. The only reason I'm giving a 4 is because of the price. It's $3 more than the manufacture's suggested retail price.

    If this thing isn't pointed directly at the xbox360 sensor it will not work. Also, seems to lose the TV code for my Vizio so I have to continuously reprogram it. Stay away.

    You have to hold it right in front of the xbox to get it to work!!!And they don't make it in black. I brought it back instantly.
