If you use the Xbox One to control most of the media in your home, you're well aware of how clunky the standard Xbox controller can be when trying to command other systems. If you're looking for an easier solution, you may want to consider a media remote for your Xbox One. Here are some of our favorites.

If we had to pick...

The Xbox One is a fantastic box to have in your living room for all your home media needs, and a great remote can enhance your experience. The superb PDP Talon (opens in new tab) is an excellent remote by any standards, let alone for a console. It has all the Xbox buttons, is well made and affordable, and ticks all the boxes.

By contrast, you can now finally (once again) interact with your console using your voice. It's not a substitute for a dedicated remote, but with an Amazon Echo Dot (opens in new tab) you can turn the console on and off, launch apps and games, and much more besides.

And if you're a fan of high-end home entertainment equipment, the Xbox One will be right at home in your setup with the Logitech Harmony Elite (opens in new tab). This programmable remote is capable of controlling everything in your entertainment center. It's the one remote to rule them all.
