The new Xbox 360 Media Remote helps you maximize your Xbox experience. It does so, by allowing you to control your Xbox 360 DVD and CD playback, your media playback through Xbox Live or TV service on your Xbox 360 console, the Xbox Dashboard, and the power and volume controls for many TVs.

Before your media remote can work with your television set, you need to program it for use with your particular brand of TV. There are two ways to program your media remote: manually entering your TV code or scanning to find your TV code.
Note After 30 seconds of inactivity, the media remote will exit the TV programming mode. Pressing any button besides Select, 0–9, or Channel Up/Down returns the media remote to its original mode and ends programming mode.
