TV setup help!

Anyone got any ideas why my cable box isn't communicating with Xbox /kinect? I can the picture to come through but I cannot change channels or other use other features while watching tv. I could not get the code to work for my box but it did show up on the device list.


I have dish network and the cable box is VIP 222k.


thanks for the help!

The IR blast from the Kinect may simply not be reaching your cable box/DVR.

If that is the problem you can get an IR cable for about $5 at monoprice that you can plug into the back of the Xbox One and directly in front of your cable box.

What I can't say for sure is if the IR signals are correct or not.

Hope that helps
