XBOne Kinect working with FireTV and Kodi

Recommended Posts

I have an Xbox One with Kinect and I have got it to control my FireTV which has Kodi installed on it. I looked on the forum before buying to see if anyone had this working but I couldn't find anything so I decided to buy and try.

 

## I can only get 7 command working since when the XBone only sends out  IR on 7 commands to control your cable box when in TV app. Other commands like ONEguide don't send IR.   If there are more let me know but I could only get 7 commands###

 

Since I didn't have a remote I had to tell the XBone that I had a cable box so that it will send those IR commands out when using voice commands.

 

I picked COX and any type of model. I don't believe it matters since you will pair these commands with the FLIRC.

 

The XBone voice commands that can be paired are .

 

 

XBOX SKIP BACKWARD

XBOX REWIND

XBOX STOP

XBOX PAUSE

XBOX PLAY

XBOX FAST FORWARD

XBOX SKIP FORWARD

 

 

 

I setup my laptop with FLIRC software and FLIRC installed. Lauch it v3.6 and open up the firetv skin. I had my laptop setup near my Kinect so it can capture the IR signal. The voice commands can also be control with a controller.

 

I then simply paired the following.

 

XBOX SKIP BACKWARD         = LEFT

XBOX REWIND                        = UP

XBOX STOP                             = SELECT

XBOX PAUSE                           = RETURN/ESCAPE

XBOX PLAY                              = PLAY/Pause

XBOX FAST FORWARD          = Right

XBOX SKIP FORWARD            = Down

 

This allows me work voice control my FireTV which in term controls Kodi. I do sometimes get double or triple commands sent. I saw a few tipson how to try to resolve them and hope that fixes it.
