  1. Xbox One Controller Extender


    Hey Guys.

    Just upgraded from my 360 to the XBONE, however I have all my multimedia setup in the office upstairs and then distributed via CAT6 HDMI. No problem with the 360 however the XBONE has a major controller range issue, even when luckily the Lounge is directly
    below the office, so only 2 No. walls and floors to go through and 3metres direct line to line, however I am still getting disconnects etc etc.

    So I have been trying everything but still getting some disconnects, so I was wondering if it was possible to buy the USB adapter and then plug this into the XBONE one via a USB cable to extend the range to the lounge? this would be done via a USB - CAT6
    - USB.

    Is this supported?

    Thanks everyone!

    :)

    Can wireless adapter be used with the Xbox One to increase controller range?

    I've got my Xbox One in another room to my TV and as the Xbox One Controller uses direct wifi to connect its range is severely limited, so I'm right on the limit of the range and my controller disconnects itself one average every 2 - 3 minutes. If I were
    to use the wireless adapter on the Xbox one with a USB extender, would that allow me to extend the Xbox Controller range?

    Hello Matutu,

    By USB adapter, you're talking about the one designed for Windows, right? The little USB dongle that plugs into a PC and allows controllers to connect wirelessly.

    I don't *think* this works on the console itself, but I cannot be sure. I would advise against spending money on that as a solution in the way you describe.

    However, there are a couple alternatives:

    -- If you don't mind using the controller as a wired controller, you can run a USB from console to where you play and plug the controller in.

    -- Alternatively, using a Windows 10 PC in the location you actually play, you can stream the Xbox One's video output to the PC, but, more importantly for you, you can stream controller inputs back from PC to Xbox One.

    Elaborating on the Windows 10 example, even if you plan to play on a TV (directly connected via HDMI to the console, or however the setup is currently), you can have a Windows 10 PC in the room to which you stream the video output across the local network
    (PC can be connected by wire to router for minimal latency), and to the PC you can either connect the controller by USB cable OR use the Wireless Adapter and have the controller connected to the PC wirelessly. In both cases, controller inputs go from Windows
    10 PC back to console, and for video you could be looking at either your existing monitor or Windows 10 PC.

    With the Windows 10 setup, with controller inputs and video output now being transmitted across the local network, you may introduce some latency to your gaming, but there's not really any good way to know before you try. If the PC is wired to the router,
    the latency should be minimal, but I cannot say for certain. What I do know is that I have streamed the Xbox One video output to my own PC (both connected wirelessly to router) on the highest settings, with a controller connected via USB to console, and I
    have not had any significant performance issues.

  5. Have you had any luck? My experience with the xbox one controller is they're absolute garbage, you're lucky to get a stable connection at 15' with line of sight, if there's a physical barrier between you and the console (cabinet etc) you're not going to
    get a stable signal. Microsoft needs to acknowledge that they dropped the ball on these controllers and release some kind of range extender so people can actually play their consoles without interruption. Also for the record my home theatre setup as a 360,
    ps3, ps4 and xbone in it and the XbOne is the only one that has EVER dropped the controller signal.

    xbox one media remote control tv volume WITHOUT Kinect ... possible?

    No, it's not a universal remote: (www.xbox.com/.../media-remote)

    The remote controls TV/receiver power and volume through Kinect, or an IR extender cable (cable not included).

    You need Kinect or IR Extenders.
