I've done the universal remote control setup (using code 01756), but not having any success to get it working.
Is there anyone who can provide detailed steps on what they've done to get the remote to control the Xbox One, including what buttons on the remote to use for the Xbox One?

The instructions for programming the remote control with the code continue with another step or two after you enter it. You need to follow the whole process. I'm sorry but I don't remember the exact steps.
The code listed previously in this thread tells the remote to control an xbox product, then you need to follow the next steps (which involves the volume button as mentioned) as it tries different xbox sub codes till it finds the one for your unit. As I went through this process it controlled my xbox 360 then found the xbox one.
I haven't used it a ton to control my xbox one but just spent half an hour playing with it, going through different menus, watching vid clips, and have also used it to control the blueray app. Felt a bit clunky at first but I'm quickly getting used to it.
I don't have a tv feed through my xbox and the channel up/down buttons seem to work as page up or down, or to move across the top of the screen like the bumper buttons would. I was pleasantly surprised to find the row of color coded buttons near the top of the remote seem to be mapped to the same color buttons on the xbox remote (A, B, X, Y).
Power on/off is controlled by "source power" and volume works as expected.
My setup is currently Xbox One hdmi into the ST300, then hdmi arc connection to my tv. Also have an apple tv 4th gen plugged into the tv by hdmi. Bose remote controls it all with no problems. Volume button on any remote works, or either the bose or apple app (when using apple tv of course) on my phone controls it as well.
Hope that helps.
edit to add: The home button toggles the Guide menu bar on the left. The Guide button brings up Xbox OneGuide.

I'd be happy to assist! I'll share the remote programming steps below. The key is to remember that the code 01756 only tells the remote that it is searching for Microsoft codes. As other users have mentioned, there are "sub-codes" that are stored internally. You do not enter additional codes to access these. Instead, you use the volume + and - buttons to cycle through this internal list. My recommendation would be to start with your TV and Xbox on, so that you can see the Xbox menu on your TV. Follow the instructions below until you enter the code (01756). Immediately after entering the code, press Volume +, and then one of the selection arrow buttons (left, or right). See if you can move anything on the TV screen. If nothing happens, press volume +, and try again. Repeat this process until something happens on the TV. This is time sensitive, so be sure you read and understand all of the steps before starting. Try not to wait too long in between button presses.
To program the universal remote, follow these steps:
