Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Setting up a Logitech Harmony Remote on two separate Xbox 360's

I have a sort of unique problem. My wife happens to work for a video game company, and I used to work for one. As such, we now have two xbox 360's in our entertainment stand(one grey one black). The problem is that we just bought a brand new Logitech Harmony 550 remote and are trying to figure out how to get it to recognize that there are two separate xboxs (instead of turning both on every time you hit power, or ejecting both, etc...) It seems these are on the same frequency? Any suggestions or thoughts, or am I just going to have to get up every time and turn the second one off (thus rendering the expensive remote useless)? Thanks in advance for any and all help :)

I don t know my xbox 360 family passcode plz help my dashboard 2.0.174390.

Family passcode resets are unique to each console via the serial number. To obtain the correct unlocking procedure you will need to contact MICROSOFT Xbox Support. Where they will want to confirm you own the console and then tell you the procedure to unlock it. DO NOT use another consoles unlocking procedure on you console they are all different. So call Xbox they will sort this out.

I have a radioshack gamer 15-133 controller and i want to use it on my ps3, how do i?

Hi! Sorry, but this is not possible. The PS3 uses Bluetooth technology for its controllers and remote controls. The Radioshack Gamer Remote 15-133 is an Infrared (IR) device and will only work with specific units that support IR remote controls(PC, Playstation 2/PS2 and XBOX 360.). Click the TECH SPECS tab on this link for more info.
If you are looking for an affordable universal remote that uses both Bluetooth and IR and will control a PS3, there is only one currently available on the market. It is the INTERLINK VP3700 Universal Infrared / Bluetooth Remote Control for PlayStation 3 and it is available at among other online retailers. Here is the link for it for more information and to order it. Please note, if you click the Feedback tab, the first review written by TV-Tastic, is my review of it. I have had three of these (the first two destroyed by my then one, now two year-old son who chews rubber buttons off everything) and it is a fantastic remote control especially for the money.

The only other Universal Remote option you have is to purchase a Logitech Harmony Remote Control (minimum $75.00) and the additional Logitech PS3 Adapter for the Harmony Remote controls ($45.00) which involves complicated setup and extra piece of equipment for about $115.00.
Good luck.

When i put a game in my Xbox 360 it will say..."reading" but then it will say "open tray" like theres no game in it. How do i fix this?

Is it scratched of any sort? Well if its not did you put in water? You will have to send it to the company if you didn't do these two.

Original xbox games in 360

Dude!?! Get an xbox 360 hard drive!!! You can't play older xbox games on a 360 without one!!! Read your manual!!! It tells you this specifically in the manual, which no one ever reads anymore. Then when you insert that game, xbox prompts you to download the backwards compatibility update (XBOX LIVE NEEDED TO DO THIS!!!) and the rest is FULLY AUTOMATIC! Again, when in doubt, READ THE MANUAL!
