Xbox Remote Media Keys

Post by GetMatt » Sat Dec 07, 2019 6:36 pm

I know we’ve discussed this topic before. However there have been updates to Xbox OS since the last time I saw this. The PDP Talon Remote has a number of keys and some of them has been integrated in the new UI, there are others such as record and CC buttons that would be really nice to have functional. Is it possible to make those work as well?

Could you make a list of those buttons you'd like to get integrated?

Yes, a lot of them are already used. The ones that currently are not used are below with suggested mappings.

Record - could be used to record current live show, possibly each consecutive click might switch between recording the single episode or series record.

CC - to toggle closed captioning options

CLR - clear the search window

Undo Arrow (right above mute) - delete (for search)

There are two other buttons that don’t seem to do anything on the Xbox in the middle of the remote. One is a movie button and the other looks like a casting button. Not sure if those are programmable, but could be hot keys for discover, live or recorded menus.

As a side not for anyone interested, the One Guide button can be remapped on the Xbox Remote settings to open the HDHR app.

For navigating OTA channels, it would be nice if the . worked in the number pad area.

Yes, the number pad works without my flirc for some time now, but my experience has been that the dot/period has not.
