If I connect a sat receiver to the HDMI in on an Xbox One, is there any way to get that to pass through when the Xbox is off?

Or am I going to have to call Brent and order an HDMI switcher?

You are going to have to call Brent. Only works while on.

Thanks. That's what I thought, but figured I'd ask to be sure.

Out of curiosity, what is the purpose of the HDMI input?

And what's the drawback of the input working when the XBox is on, if you can get the signal to pass through the XBox? Okay, so you have to issue a command to get the XBox to pass the video instead of outputting game video. This way you still only use one AVR input for two devices!
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

you control the Xbox with the Xbox controller. I don't think the new xboxes have any IR control at all. And even if it does, there is no discrete command to switch to the source connected to the HDMI input. Microsoft wants you to use the Kinect and voice commands. "Xbox, watch tv" "Xbox change channel to HBO"

This setup is not compatible with a control system

To make Microsoft the hub of your entertainment. The problem is it doesn't work if you have more than an Xbox, a tv, and a cable box

Exactly. Notice that you can assemble that combination on the top of a table for a demonstration, making an engineer familiar with design but unfamiliar with implementation think that he's looking at a product that will work in the real world.

It's an example of the short-sightedness of manufacturers who don't understand that the product will work on a crap system but cannot possibly work in a millionaire's Home Theater that's 60 feet from lens to screen! We've got all the parts; they're wired up; they work perfectly on a table; what more is needed?

Well, HDMI started out with a maximum cable length of six feet.* Are you kidding me?



*FWIW, so did S-Video.

Have you found a code to make it jump to the hdmi in? The driver I have didn't have a discrete.

xbox definitely has ir control.

using it as the entertainment hub actually works pretty well. it worked great with my directv box.

you can use a controller or the kinect to control it. so, in turn, you can use motion and voice commands to control.

biggest drawback is it doesnt have hdmi passthrough like an A/V receiver. i hated having to have the xbox powered up to pass the signal of my DTV even when i didnt want to use the xbox to control it. big oversite!!!!!!!
I love supporting product that supports me!
