Microsoft has said you will be able to use USB harddrive for everything. That was before they delayed the feature.

There also would be no point in connecting anything but a USB 3.0 hard drive to the USB port. A USB 2.0 hard drive would be too slow.

Yeah, I can't imagine how ridiculously slow USB 2 would be, would take like 5 minutes to load a level in forza.  

 

I've seen some benchmarks of USB 3.0 SSDs, and they still max out at 150-200MB/sec or so (about the same as the internal HDD), that seems to be the real world limit for USB 3.0. My concern would be that they're reserving part of that bandwidth like they did on the 360, pushing the real world limit even lower.

We can't play this one (0x91D70001)"

So, has anybody here successfully had the AVSHD 709 calibration disk in AVCHD format work on their XB1?

Anybody here with a blu-ray burner willing to create an HDMV version of the 709 disk if shipping + media cost is paid for? I really want to have the XB1 in the calibration chain since It's now used for TV as well as games.

Thanks,

Yes, I have.

Anyone here get in on the Titanfall action? It's coming across the wire as meh. By meh, they are saying it's COD.

So because some say it is like COD it is MEH? Uh how is that bad and where were these people almost a year we have been seeing this game and nothing but praise so now an alpha is out it is meh because it is like COD. And you don't see the Titanfall thread that has had member posting since last night?

It is from the creators of COD which we knew before it was revealed. What is surprising about it playing fast pace like COD?

Yeah exactly as written. Many of the alpha players are saying it's like COD which is meh (to them). COD is not everyone's fave and many were hoping for a generational leap in the FPS dept. I hope it's awesome personally. It, Destiny, and The Division are the only titles that are attractive to me at this point and if Titanfall IS MORE COD it will wind up a buy when it goes on discount.

Destiny is as meh as it gets. it looks like open world Halo. The guns seem to behave similarly. I'm not having too much faith in Bungie. Halo Reach was pretty average. Halo 4 brought back the Halo feeling (though it did make a lot of Halo traditionalists mad by bringing over COD elements).

The Division does look really good.

Yeah it does appear that way but I'm a RPG type of guy and enjoyed Halo so that appeals to me.

Based on the gameplay I saw of all three, The Division is the one game I will not be getting. I thought I might like the game until I saw the gameplay. Destiny and Titanfall I will get. The only question is whether I get Destiny on the PS4 or XBOne.

EDIT: Scratch that. I think I mixed up Watch Dogs and The Division. Watch Dogs was the game I disliked after seeing the gameplay. So I guess I will still need to figure out whether I get the Division on the PS4 or XBOne.

I don't get the hype on Watch Dogs either.

Yeah Watch dogs looks cool when I first saw it but became less interesting the more I saw. I plan to check it out at some point.

I'll need to try this out. I'm downloading the AVS HD 709 file right now. I bought a bunch of BDs years ago and never really use them because the media is just too slow compared to a hard drive. It will be nice to finally use a disc.
post #12586 of 14773
I burned it to a BD-R disc. My Sony S5100 BD player has no issue with it, but my XBOne in this room does not like the disc. I wonder if I try a BD-RE disc if that will make any difference?

EDIT: I see the same issue with my main XBOne. Although my PS4 has no trouble playing the disc.

Exactly. We deserve it after the Future Soldier debacle.

to be honest, I've barely watched The Division videos. but it looks far more interesting than Watch Dogs.

and a modern GRAW wouldn't be so bad (as long as the frame rate is good which was GRAW's downfall for me).

Future Soldier was a lot of fun. Its downfall is no matchmaking for the horde mode. If it had that, I'd still play it as it's impossible to get friends to play that game.

No voodoo. Followed the directions in the thread. Used a DVD-R. Used IMGBURN to burn the DVD.

So you used a DVD instead of a BD? That would be the voodoo. On a BD-r and BD-RE it works in BD players and the PS4 but not in the XBOne.

Why would it be voodoo? Says in the instructions that you can use a DVD. It works in PS3, PS4, XBOX One, my OPPO 93.

I followed those same exact instructions to a T as you, and all I get is the error which says "we can't play this". I made sure to compute and validate the MD5 hashes and everything checked out.

Then there is also this post which says the following, bolded by me for emphasis:
Quote:
The Blu-ray player on the Xbox One console only supports mastered Blu-ray discs and DVDs.

We don’t intend on paying to have 1000 copies of our internal test pattern disc professionally replicated just to get past this silly lockout system, but it is nice to know that Microsoft are so concerned about our test patterns being illegally copied without our permission that even we are not allowed to view them. As a result, we had to find content on store-bought films that we could use to assess the performance, and fortunately we also had the excellent Spears & Munsil v2 Blu-ray Disc with its multitude of tests.

Contrary to the official suggestion, the Xbox One does play DVD-Rs.

This also means that home-produced Blu-ray Discs – wedding videos recorded to BD-R, for example – will not play (although admittedly this content is rarer now since most home-produced content is online). Want to calibrate your HDTV and all-in-one media playing console using a burned copy of the freely downloadable AVS HD 709 disc? You’re out of luck.

Don't know what to tell you. I don't remember doing anything "special" to get the DVD burned. I did it several years ago. I just threw in the XBox One to see if it worked. It did.

The first method in the AVS HD 709 thread talks about burning the content to a BD. I don't really use DVDs with PCs and since it's a BD player a BD made more sense. I guess I'll need to dust off one of these old DVDs and burn a copy to that.
post #12596 of 14773
I just burned it to a DVD+R disc and the XBOne did not like that either. I'll try it on a DVD+RW.

As far as I know the Xbox One will not recognize "burned" media to any digital format(Blu-ray, DVD) However, you can upload the MP4's to Skydrive & play them back.
post #12598 of 14773
How does the XB1 determine which gamer tags are player 1 or player 2 in a game? Or who's playing for that matter. If my son and I are watching TV and we are both signed in (via Kinect recognition), and then I leave and he decides to play a game, how does it decide who's the first player. If we play a two player game, (such as the Kinect sports), how does it decide which user is player 1 or player 2.

I've assumed that it's whose home screen it is when launching the game, but it doesn't always seem to be consistent.

How to assign a profile to an Xbox One Wireless Controller



Overview


Pair your profile to your Xbox One Wireless Controller so that your profile is in control of the action on your console. This is especially important if you have multiple users and controllers being used at the same time. By pairing your profile to the wireless controller, you ensure that everyone has the best experience, and of course, the best achievement.

If you need help on how to wirelessly sync your controller to your console before assigning a profile, see Connect a wireless controller to your Xbox One.



Automatically assign a profile to a wireless controller


You can automatically assign a profile to a wireless controller using Kinect. Just make sure you meet the following requirements:
•Your Kinect is plugged in and turned on.
•The profile you want to assign to the controller has been set up to be recognized by Kinect. See How to set up and use Kinect sign-in.
•Your controller is synced to the console. See Connect a wireless controller to your Xbox One.

Once you’ve met the requirements, it’s easy to assign the profile to a wireless controller using Kinect. Here’s how:
1.Turn on the controller you want to use by pressing the Xbox button.
2.While standing up to six feet away, point the front of the controller toward your Kinect sensor so that Kinect can see the infrared signal from the controller.
3.Now that Kinect recognizes you and knows which controller you’re holding, it will automatically assign you to that controller.




The following notes apply when you have multiple users or multiple controllers:
•If you pick up a different controller, Kinect will recognize this action and reassign your profile to that controller in the same manner as it did for your controller.
•If another recognized user picks up your controller, it will be assigned to that user.
•If an unrecognized player picks up your controller, the controller will remain paired to your profile.





Manually assign a profile to a wireless controller


If you have a guest who wants to use a controller, or if you don’t want to automatically pair your profile with your controller by using Kinect, you can sign in using any wireless controller.
1.Make sure the controller is powered on, and then go to the Dashboard.
2.In the upper-right corner of the Home screen, select the profile that you want to sign in with.




3.The controller you’re using is now assigned to that profile.

If you have multiple controllers being used, the only way to tell which user is assigned to a specific controller is by when they can control what’s happening on the screen. There are no LED indicators on the controller or console as with the Xbox 360, because with Xbox One, you can have up to eight controllers connected at one time.
post #12600 of 14773
Anyone having have trouble with the following:
1. Console keeps switching between signed in profiles.
2. When manually turning off console by holding the xbox button, it turns off off then turns on right away. Only after a few times it will eventually turn off.
3. What is generally better PQ between 1080i cable upconvertered to 1080p or HD content from an app. Does Amazon instant video app play 1080p videos?

Tip: try snapping www.msn.com. It's probably the best news layout for the xbox one. It has big photos and fonts. It even plays video. Tell me what you think.

Thanks!
