My media center is in a closet and I have my Xbox one in there. The wireless controller is having trouble communicating with my console because it is behind a wall. I know you can pair your controller using the kinect but will having the kinect in line of sight of my controller completely fix that issue? I'm worried that even though the kinect is in the open that my controller will still attemp to go straight to the console. Long story short. Does the Kinect work as an IR blaster.i don't want to purchase the kinect until I can verify this.
