I could be wrong, but I think even blu-ray playback suffers from the dummy channels issue where the X1 outputs audio in a 5.1 or 7.1 wrapper even where the source is only 2.0 - thereby prohibiting...

I believe the reason for this discrepancy is that the XBOX 360 does not output DD+ rather it outputs garden variety Dolby Digital which your TV can accept. I can't think of any TV's off hand that...

I don't see why that would be the worst solution. Although I like your idea better, my point is that I don't see it happening. It seems MS is aiming from a seamless experience as you go in and out...

My point is it's not an easy fix given the user experience that MS is aiming for. The X1 is setup to output a set number of channels at all times, my guess is that it is this way to enable it to mix...

I'd like to give an annual membership a shot. Does anyone know how to get in on this at the moment if Microsoft doesn't send you an email directly?

My Dune players have been flawless for the four years that I've had them so even if the company's future doesn't look bright, as long as there are a couple of jukebox options to use on them I'm good....

While you can change output manually on the X1, that isn't a solution I'm at all interested in using. Until it gets fixed I just use other devices for media purposes.

As for the PS4, similarly,...

Of course, that's not the only audio issue with the X1, the other equally annoying issue is that it sends everything with a predetermined number of audio channels regardless of the source audio. For...

I haven't heard of a fix coming. This is a significant problem, I own many non 5.1/7.1 blu-ray's that my AVR convincingly converts into 7.1 with DPLIIx. However, my guess is this isn't an easy fix...

No it doesn't. The X1 sends all audio to your AVR in a predetermined number of audio channels. For example, if you set the X1 to decode in 7.1 if you playback a source (whether it's blu-ray,...

As far as I know, what UV offers is the upgrade of a DVD to an HD copy, not necessarily one that is equivalent to blu-ray. I've tried it on a couple of titles that weren't available on blu-ray at...

I see your point with regards to quality and I agree it isn't at a point where it's ready to compete with a native blu-ray. However, I have to ask, as someone who has been doing this a while I can't...

For this reason, nobody with a surround sound setup should be using an XBOX One as a blu-ray player or streamer.

I've considered doing something similar but I can't get past the idea of watching an inferior quality product to blu-ray - even if the difference is getting smaller and smaller.
