So latest firmware update beta has borked my Kinect. It powers off and on on it's own and it is not responding to voice commands.

Anyone else have this problem? I reported it to the program, but not sure how many others are affected by it.

I got the update yesterday morning. Was playing Madden yelling Xbox Record and games and apps to go to. Have not seen any issues come up for me. Have you done a hard reset without the Kinect plugged in and then reset it up by default?

The 5.0 is here

Did the hard reset, but didn't have it unplugged. I'll give that a try and see how it goes.

Is it necessary for some reason to purchase the remote for the One S if I'm looking to purchase a harmony remote? In other words is it necessary to have the remote to program a harmony remote to control the One S?

Well it took them years to add bitstreaming. Maybe Dolby Vision will show up by 2019?

come join the stalkers! haha.

OMG, I get so many messages because of my YouTube channel. I'm so far behind on putting new stuff because I've been so busy (doing a lot of drone videos and photography stuff).

Windows Central has an in-depth look at the alpha of the new dashboard. Kind of crazy how much the dash has changed...

When I moved my XB1S systems around last month, I didn't even reconnect the Kinect to each system. So the dashboard change will be very welcome since I stopped using Kinect.

I messed around with the new dashboard a little bit last night. Gotta admit I'm not a fan. Accessing the guide by flicking left on the left thumb stick is gone, a feature I really liked. I like that you can add your own content to the home screen, it's very easy to do, but the content blocks take up too much real estate, I'd like to see these be smaller so I can see groups of three or more. The audio controls were also easier to get to when using headphones. The overall flow is way different.


A lot of this is muscle memory challenges to overcome, but I really liked the layout of the previous (current ) UI.

well, I'm done testing alphas and stuff. too buggy. I guess that's why I don't get any goodies anymore.

but from watching the videos, it seems like there's just so much wasted space. everything is so big. I guess it's good for gamers on 32" TVs. But man...

Doesn't seem like this redesign is going over well from the videos and comments I'm reading. I don't own an XB1 yet so I have no experience with the current UI but, I'm not a fan of what I'm seeing in the videos of this new UI.

I don't understand this trend of moving to UIs that show less on screen and requiring more swipes/clicks to do the same things. Hulu recently redesigned there app and there new UI sucks so much that I have only used Hulu once or twice since the update. It's the main reason I decided I would never subscribe to Hulu TV because the new UI is so awful. The old UI would show you rows with 5 or 6 shows in each row, now you see 1 or maybe 2 shows on the screen at a time. You literally have to do 5x+ the amount of swiping/clicking to see the same amount of content. It's like they are more concerned with making it look "cool" than being functional.

The new blocking section of the XB1 UI looks similar to the Hulu change of only showing 1 thing at a time. I have a 55" TV, you can put more then one item on my screen. Don't worry I can handle it and it will not look cluttered if designed right.

The changes to the side menus where people are saying it takes a lot more clicks to get to stuff now, I'll never understand why companies thing changes like that are good. You know MS knows it takes more clicks but, why in there meetings, is that considered a good change? They wouldn't be changing it if they didn't think it was better for some reason but, why? I don't think any fan/consumer has asked for UI changes to include more clicks, typically we always want less. So why even get to an alpha where simple tasks now take longer to complete? Must have been some fun meetings; "hey lets take this task that you can do in 2-3 clicks and turn it into 5-6 clicks. It'll be great, they'll love it!"

Oh well, hopefully the alpha/beta testers will convince them to change some things.

Hey guys. New to this thread.

I'm very much eager to get the X1X. I got my Sony 940e (75 inch) TV ready and Atmos speakers. Just wanted to see which games you all will be getting on Day 1.

My thoughts are:

- Forza 7 (no hesitation)
- Call of Duty (return to WW2!)

My 3rd game is where I am having a hard time:

- Wolfenstein....always fun
- I have never played Player Unknown's Battlegrounds...heard its a lot of fun.


Thoughts??

Well lets see. I'll be getting destiny 2, far cry 5, hob, cuphead, night trap, super luckys tail, left for dead 3, a way out, red dead redemption 2, need for speed, cyberpunk 2077, crackdown 3, South Park, assassins creed origins, shadow of war, cod ww2(1st cod since modern warfare), Star Wars battlefront 2, the last night, borderlands 3, anthem, Wolfenstien 2, metro exodus, Wolf among us season 2, half life 3 and that's just on the Xbox. I feel like I'm missing a game?

Pubg is awesome with friends but it's terrible with a controller so I'll have to wait and see what bluehole does to make pubg more accessible on a console via a controller. Inventory management and looting takes forever with a controller on pubg. Ever since I got my OLED all I want to do is play video games on it. HDR gaming is so much goodness on this oled. I hope all of these games have HDR.

Who here is a Xbox preview member and has the new dashboard update? How is it compared to the current dashboard? Pros and Cons? I'd like to hear from someone who actually has it and has had some time with it. Thanks.

I had to unplug it from my console USB port (I have the S) , reconnect it, and it's working fine now.

I didn't realize that the One updated and allowed for Atmos and Windows Sonic surround awhile back. So I turned my Turtle Beach Stealth 500X 7.1 virtual surround off, and switched them to stereo. Changed the One's audio settings to Atmos and...
HO...

CRAP.
It's like having a new pair of cans. I didn't realize how bad my TB's virtual surround was. It's literally like night and day, man what a difference.

Every couple of days I go into my Xbox one S sound settings to find that bitstream and Atmos have been turned back to 7.1 for some reason. Is this happening to anyone else and can anyone think of why it’s happening? It’s annoying because now every time I want to watch something I have to check the settings first.

I have not seen this with my XBOne S connected to an Atmos system. I have not needed to go back in to the settings for bitstreaming since I set it.

Okay, just for clarity's sake on all this Atmos/Windows Sonic thing... so far, this only applies to movies? it doesn't really apply to games yet, correct? I still need to have my Turtle Beach's set as it is for gaming.

It sounds promising to have better audio from the same set of headphones.
