Power On/off Xbox Remotely?
Posted 16 May 2005 - 04:56 PM
I'm looking for a way that I can power on and off my xbox via the wireless controller, a universal remote, or some other way.
I found this tutorial (http://www.xbox-scen...es/rf-power.php) on how to do it with a Doorbell which looks pretty simple but are there any other ways to do it that might be even easier and cheaper? Looking for any and all possible solutions at this point.

I may be getting some IR Extender things which I would assume will work with this...

oh yea...sorry to bump a semi-old thread, but i figured it wasn't very old and it would be better than starting a whole new one, since my topic was already mentioned

Could you desolder the rf rceiver and antenna and mount it outside the shielding and then extend the wires to the receiver to the pcb?
I tried that doorbell thing and couldn't get it to work. My xbox is a 1.6 and it didn't have 3.3V standby (not enough current anyway) to drive it.

But if everyone is having trouble with it, maybe I'll find some other way to do it if there is one. My main setup was going to be to have the XBox in the basement and have it hooked up to an RF Modulator so I can set it to a specific TV channel and have it merge into my cable TV signal. Then I can play XBox from any TV in the house with a wireless controller. But the whole on/off thing was the only main hold-up so I don't have go downstairs and turn it on manually.

im going to work on mounting it between the HD cradle and the front panel by removing some shielding
mine works fine right now (on and off) but its just sitting on top of my HD with the top off so not really a permanent solution. i can almost guarantee you its RFI coming off of the DVD drive.
