For someone else who had trouble with their Xbox One remote with the NUC, Intel staffer Riccardog recommended trying an infrared driver called Nuvuton.
I'm guessing you are using Linux, but if you are using Windows 10 then there is also a version of the driver for that.
I did some more research. Starting the NUC from its off state with the remote is called 'Wake From S5'. Other users said that you should go to the Power tab of the BIOS and disable the 'Rapid Start' option, and then enable 'Wake from S5'. Then the NUC was startable with the remote for those people after that.
A number of people have reported that an Xbox One remote that worked fine with one model wouldn't work with another model they bought. Their suspicion was that the newer model did not yet have IR codes to allow the remote to turn the NUC on (hence why your wish for a BIOS update is reasonable).
I don't have any other ideas. Hopefully somebody else can pick up with you from here and help you get to a solution. Good luck!
For what it is worth, the IR power on works just fine for me with a NUC7i3BNH. BIOS settings are default (F9 reset to default). Using a Logitech Harmony Hub that's configured with MCE remote profile (though my undestanding is that the Xbox remote is an MCE remote too!). System powers on pressing power toggle button or pause (which I use as discrete power on).

Intel® has not validated this NUC with LibreELEC so I’m not sure if this has something to do with it.
Have you try it with Windows®10 install by any chance?
Please check Supported Operating Systems for Intel® NUC Products
Try the following when installing Linux*:
- Press F2 when prompted during boot to enter BIOS Setup.
- Press F9 to set all BIOS options to default values.
- Select Advanced.
- On the Devices and Peripherals > SATA menu, Chipset SATA Mode is set to AHCI.
- On the Devices and Peripherals > USB menu, USB Legacy is enabled (checked).
- On the Devices and Peripherals > Video menu, IGD Minimum Memory is set to 512 MB.
- On the Boot > Boot Priority menu:
- UEFI Boot is disabled (unchecked).
- Legacy Boot is enabled (checked).
Also, I suggest you to post your issue at the Linux*community as they can help you with some commands or similar.
thx for your response.
I follwed all your steps and it didnt change anything.
How could it be a problem with the OS (any OS) if the NUC doesnt wake up (wakeon s5 via cir) by remote from off-state??
Im pretty shure its a bios problem, not an os problem. The remote works perfectly if i turn on the system by hand.
