It seems Microsoft wants this thing to work like a giant voice control, motion control Harmony remote:
Another new feature that uses voice commands also uses the built-in IR blaster. You can programme the Xbox One to control every AV device in your set-up and, by just saying things like "Xbox volume up" and "Xbox volume down" you can control your TV, amplifier or whatever else you choose. As long as the item of kit accepts infra-red controls, it can be operated through the Xbox One and Kinect - and all while you're playing too.
Microsoft will also be hosting a data library of IR codes - much like the Harmony remotes - so you just need to search for your kit and it will assign the codes automatically.
