-The list of codes are online at xbox.com
-You don't actually need the codes anyway because you can scan for them.
-To program your remote through the scan method:
1. Press and hold tv and ok buttons at the same time.
2. The display will blink and only the number pad on the
bottom will remain lit.
3. Press the ch/pg up button until your tv turns off. Do not hold
the button down just tap it every few seconds.
4. When the tv does turn off press the tv button on the remote to
lock in the code.
5. If only some of the buttons for the tv work or they are
inaccurate repeat the process. There are several codes for
each brand of tv and some may not work for all the buttons.
-If the remote doesn't work on your xbox go the the system settings ->
console settings -> remote settings. There will be a choice of both
controllers or remote only. Select remote only and exit the screen.
At this point the controller may work. On some of the remotes only
the guide button will work at this point. Got back into the settings
and turn it to both controllers again. This should do the trick.
For my remote I had to toggle the settings on a off a few times until it works. Seems like a software problem with the xbox to me. Now that the controller works I love it. I watch a lot of netflix on my xbox and the controller works really well for it.
The difficulty in troubleshooting combined with the lack of detail in the instruction manual lead this controller to be problematic. Hopefully anyone who has one has benefited from this post.
This remote is PERFECT if...
1. You would like one, easy-to-use remote to control both basic TV and an Xbox 360 that doubles as your DVD player.
2. The only buttons you would need for the TV are: Channels, Volume (TV speaker/output control only), Numerical channel input, Muting, *INTPUT SELECTION* (yes, it CAN switch between your TV's inputs), Return (to toggle between 2 TV channels), and Power.
3. You do not need specialized/advanced buttons found on a OEM remote or advanced learning remote for the TV.
4. You do not need to control a A/V receiver, DVD player (other than XBOX 360), or a digital cable box (Tivo, DVR, etc.)
5. You are on a budget but would still like a quality remote.
If you can say yes to all or most, then don't hesitate to grab one of these remotes. You will be completely satisfied. Especially with immediate access to the tactile DVD buttons versus the 360's annoying on-screen DVD navigation. For this feature it is almost worth the $30 alone.
I also own a Logitech Harmony 880 for the living room which I highly recommend for anyone not fitting into the catagory mentioned above.
Yes, you can use the standard controller to access the DVD menu items - but it's a royal pain to move through the various menus and sub-menus to get to some of the items. Also, it's not very intuitive for non gamers to page through to the items.
In comparison, this controller is incredible easy. it looks like and acts like any other TV remove. You have the standard buttons that everybody knows how to use - play, pause, fast forward, rewind. If someone walks into the room, you don't have to page through a menu quickly - you just hit the pause button.
The controller is a nice size, too - large, easy to use buttons.
Yes, we have a wireless Xbox regular controller - we like to have a fully wireless living room. So it's not that we gain "wireless control" that we didn't have before. Really, though, with all the various DVDs we watch, it is so nice to be able to hit those control buttons to have the DVD do exactly what you need.
This is especially true with exercise videos where you're moving to specific scenes and segments, not just watching something through in a stream from start to finish. The easy-access buttons are definitely key there.
The main thing I like about it is that you just pick it up and use it, just like any remote. You don't need to activate a controller, and you don't have to go through the hassle of turning the controller off (or wait for it to turn itself off after it sits idle for several minutes...draining your batteries) after you've done messing around in the menu. It's also much easier to navigate DVD playback controls while the movie is playing -- if you've ever tried to get to the "Advanced" menu of the DVD playback menu while a DVD is playing, you'll appreciate this remote: what usually takes several button pushes and thumbstick touches to accomplish now takes only one or two button pushes of the remote.
If you use your 360 for other things other than gaming, this is a required accessory. If all you want to do is mess around in the dashboard (searching for movies, TV shows, games, game demos, downloadable content, etc.), it does a great job and makes navigation more natural. This remote makes the 360 feel more like a sophisticated entertainment center than just a gaming box. At this price point, it can't be beat.
