how to remotely power on xbox 360

Hello. Could anyone help me out. My goal is to use an arduino to turn on my xbox 360 from either my android smartphone or an iPod touch(or possibly a push button). No idea how to get started but any help/links would be appreciated. Thanks

The Xbox 360 accepts keyboard input, you might want to experiment around with that, and see if there is a way to wake it via keyboard (and then have the arduino simulate a keyboard). Alternatively, you could have the arduino simulate pushing and holding the power button to wake it up. You could even add a photodiode over one of the LEDs, to make sure it isn’t already on. You may also want to look into Wake On LAN. I’m not sure if the xbox supports it though.

Maybe using solid state relays? Dont know a whole lot about them though
