DEVICES: Xbox One

Control Types

Xbox One can only be controlled through IR commands. If you're having trouble controlling the Xbox One with Control Center, see this article for more information about IR troubleshooting.

 

Auto Switching

Control Center can detect the follow activities on Xbox:

  • Power on
  • Xbox One IR Remote operation

If Auto Switching for Xbox One is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Control Center will turn on and switch sources to Xbox One automatically.

Note: In order for auto switching to work with XBOX ONE
"Power mode" must be set to "Energy-savings" (not "instant-on") on the Xbox?
[Power & Startup -> Power mode & Startup].
 
 
 
In addition, if the Xbox powers back on within 3 minutes or so of powering off, Control Center won’t be able to automatically switch to the Xbox input. The Xbox takes around 3 minutes before it actually powers completely down. Xbox must power down completely for Control Center to detect that it powered back up.

 

Basic Controls

Xbox One keys are mapped to the following Control Center buttons:
