Unfortunate. Seems like it would be trivial for MS to add support for an external adapter like that with a simple software update to the console. That would at least shut some of us up.

I'm just wondering if the VCRX outputs show up in the new app when they are set to 'momentary' (Like a Garage Door Opener), as opposed to 'sustained' (Like a fireplace or something).

MS sells an adapter to use the controllers wirelessly with a PC (just a little USB dongle). I'm curious if it will work on the XBOne if you're out of controller range. So for PLTurbo, if this worked...

Can my Oppo BDP-93 output different audio on each HDMI Output?

Well, the basic question is simple, can this player output say, a DTS track on one HDMI output, and a 2 channel PCM track on another. I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

If the answer is no,...
