Setting up a Media Remote

I recently purchased an XBox 360 Media Remote (http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/accessories/media-remote)...I was able to program it to operate my TV, but it doesn't operate the actual XBox.  I can't see how to connect it like I would a controller.  Anyone have an idea how to start using it?

You shouldn't have to sync the remote to your Xbox 360, it should be working straight out of the box when you point it at the console. When I got my first one I had the opposite problem: it was working with my 360, but I couldn't set it up with my TV. I had to contact support and get a replacement.

Hi there,

can you check the remote settings on the console here Settings - System -  Console Settings -  Remote Control and check if changing the setting helps and will allow you to operate the console
