New black xbox 360 media remote wont change TV channels.

Hi all..

 

I just picked up one of those brand new black xbox media remotes and im trying to program it to control my Sony TV yet all i can control is TV power on/off, volume, input select & mute.

i cant change the channels up or down or even use the numbers to go direct to the channels. is this the way the new remotes are??? or am i doing something wrong??

 

With the old original white media universal control i could change channels from it but the new black one wont.. anyone know anything about them??

Thanks in advance.

I really dont know enough to help you but since you posted this a while ago now I will use my comment as a bump.

Maybe it wont change channels because its Microsoft trying to work a Sony product haha.

lol.. i did actually think that at one point...

but I ended up finding out from some user feedback comments left on Amazons website that the new black control does not have the ability to change channels on any TV at all anymore.

I really dont understand why Microsoft made the new ones like this...if u cant change ur TV channels what are u suppose to do with it just use it for the volume..

A big fail in my opinion :(

chris you have been here long enough to know xbox-sony will never get in bed together. Sony was probably working on a block as soon as they heard about the remote. You could always try throwing it at the buttons on the tv :)

Guys it's got nothing to do with Sony or any other brand..LOL

This new remote does not have the ability to change channels for ANY tv.

The old white remote could ..the new black ones don't..it's as simple as that.

Now why Microsoft decided not to include this handy option is beyond me.

so you know Microsoft made this remote for people that use the tv services that some xbox owners can get to make the xbox another cable box. I recently found that it changes only on xbox. I think they thought alot of users would switch from their original cable box to the xbox as the box. So channel up and down for the main tv wouldnt need done if all they needed was to use the switch button for inputs to go to other system or devices, and the volume is only done on the tv anyway. the power for tv is essential and mute is also needed for a tv to work. They want to take over the ability to be 2 things at once and now with the xbox one doing exactly that. this remote was a sneak peak into the future of xbox.
