Can I use my Cable Box Remote while Xbox One is Connected through XBox TV?

I have yet to hook this feature up and wanted to make sure before I tried.

I am able to use my Genie remote with my Direct TV Genie box with no issues.


Confirmed all the Xbox is doing is sending remote codes to the box to change the channels its not actually taking over.

I have the Genie also, are you still able to record your shows?

Yes, all the functionality remains. Works great!


That's great! Thank you.

You bet! Enjoy.


The XB1 controls your cable box, TV & stereo with an IR blaster, the same way your remote does. So you can control you cable box with any combination of your voice, game pad, the devices remote control and I believe your tablet / phone with the XB1 app.
