Anybody think this might work with NUC and xbmc. Just saw it and though i would post.
Currently the XBONE controllers aren't even supported on PCs. There aren't any drivers that I'm aware of, nor any sort of dongle you can buy to receive and decode the propietary RF signals coming from these things like you can for a wireless 360 controller.
They're IR, not RF, and they work just fine on a PC
Wait, what? Did you get one early or something? AFAIK they aren't released until March 4th. And the announcement only says it can control IR devices via the Kinect's IR Blaster. I can't find any details on what medium the remote itself uses to transfer the commands to the XBone.
Found this though, from an MS rep.
"To also control your television set, cable or satellite set-top box, or additional AV equipment, the Media Remote must sync with the console through an IR blaster," the rep continued. "This can be done with an IR extender cable plugged into the back of the console (not included), or it can be done through the Kinect sensor. IR blasting between the Media Remote and Kinect will work even if Kinect has been disabled in Settings."
