Set Up the Xbox's TV & AV Power Options

The Xbox One has the ability to send discrete commands to other devices such as a television, cable box, or audio receiver. You can, for example, set your TV to turn on/off at the same time as your gaming console, which eliminates the need for a separate remote control.

Turn Your TV ON or OFF with the Xbox One

Press the Menu button of your controller and go to Settings > Power & startup > TV & A/V power options:

N.B. This feature isn't supported by all devices.
