The BIOS is the last 0051.
Regarding the remotes for what I know XBOX One media remote and XBOX 360 media remote are equivalents (the two use the same IR codes for the power button).
Therefore, if one does not work, the other does not.
Also in the other threads, users with the XBOX One media remote have the same problem:
I work for Intel Customer Support and I was looking into this request and I will take it up to the team looking after the NUC family.
I personally own a NUC and I use a CIR remote control from HP* and all functions work well enough except for turning the device on and off, I will send your feedback up as I said before but no promises at this point.
On the other hand I checked at: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/accessories/xbox-one-media-remote-info and found the following reference:
Can I use my Xbox 360 Media Remote on my Xbox One?
The Xbox 360 Media Remote works only with the Xbox 360 console.
Can I use my Xbox One Media Remote on my Xbox 360?
The Xbox One Media Remote only works only with the Xbox One console.
They may not be exactly the same.
At least XBOX One Media remote (6DV-00007) should work because it's on the list of hardware tested by Intel:
We do not ask for anything strange or add any new functionality. Just fix something that is already announced that works (CIR wake-up from S4, S5).
I am trying to get both, the XBOX* One Media remote (6DV-00007) and the Xbox* 360 Media Remote (BLACK) X17-90975-02 to run my own testing but for now I can only tell you that I tested CIR Remote Control branded HP model TSGH-IR05 and it works fine, wakes the system from S3/S4 and turns on the system from S5 as well.
In BIOS under devices, I have selected Generic Remote Controller by the way. Have you tried that option? Can you please make sure that the system is in S5 and not in G3 (Mechanical Off)? Just by power cycling the system it should go into S5 after you soft shutdown the system. You probably has done this but I have to ask.
I’m not understand well what kind of tests do you made:
In BIOS under devices, I have selected Generic Remote Controller by the way. Have you tried that option?
BIOS 0051 or last 0052 for NUC7i5BNK does not have this option (choose type of remote) note that capture in first post is from old NUC5 series only for illustrate that NUC7 series NOT have this option.
Can you please make sure that the system is in S5 and not in G3 (Mechanical Off)?
Sure as NUC7i5BNK does not have “power switch” to cut power completely off (mechanical off).
Is it really necessary to go through all this?
Can you open an internal ticket/bug/issue to engineering team that says “XBOX remotes does NOT power on NUC7i[x]BNK” ?
Frankly, I'm getting a little worried about this issue. I've been digging and digging and digging through the Intel support forum and this isn't the only thread to mention this. It's gone as far back as March on other threads with the NUC7s and it seems this was an issue throughout the NUC6's life! Every time an Intel Representative says they are going to check on it, the thread goes silent with just a handful of user bumps looking for updates.
Just tell us what's going on, Intel. Is there some sort of licensing issue with Microsoft on using their specific "power toggle" signal? Are you afraid that the percentage of users who have both a NUC and an XBOX 360/One in the same room are not going to know how to switch the command in their BIOS and get frustrated with Intel because their console keeps turning on when they turn on their PC or vice versa? Is there a major communication issue between support techs and engineers? Just tell us something. Should we have hope, or not?!
New BIOS 0057 is newer because include new ME firmware version (security update) and new SATA RAID option ROM, however does NOT include XBOX 360 remote fix.
I really cannot understand how a company with as many resources as Intel can manage these things so badly...
Anyway, I decided to share the beta BIOS 1054 for anyone who needs to turn on the NUC with Xbox 360 remote:
BN1054.rar (Valid for NUC7i3BNK, NUC7i3BNH, NUC7i5BNK, NUC7i5BNH, NUC7i7BNH)
