How To Video: Configure your TV and cable box settings on the Xbox One

1:53 /

The new Kinect sensor can control your TV, cable box, and surround sound system. Here's how to set it up.

I'm Dan Graziano and I'm here with the brand new Xbox One game console, which is now available for $500. What makes this system unique is its ability to control your TV and cable box. To set it up, plug in your cable box into the HDMI IN port on the back of the system and connect the TV to the HDMI OUT port. Turn the console on and go to settings followed by TV in OneGuide, click on the OneGuide option and select TV line up. Then just enter your zip code and choose your cable provider from the pull down menu. Go back to the TV in OneGuide settings and select devices. Click on TV model and choose your TV brand or click I don't see my brand and enter it manually. Hit next and allow the system to automatically set up your TV. If the console can mute your TV then you're good to go. If not, enter the model manually and choose the correct one from the drop down menu. Even doing this, some models aren't compatible with the Xbox One's TV integration, but don't worry you can still play games, you can use all the features, you just have to reach for the remote when you want to change the volume. Inside the device settings, you also have to enter the brand of your cable or satellite box and any surround sound systems you may have installed. Then go back to the TV in OneGuide options as like power settings. From here, you can control what systems are turned on and off with your console. Once everything is complete, you will now be able to use voice commands that change the channels, raise the volume and even power off your cable box, TV and surround sound system. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to me on Tweeter and to learn more about Xbox One and new kinect sensor, visit howto. CNET.com. For CNET, I'm Dan Graziano.
