Back in 2014 I bought a 5TB off Amazon for $130. This is the time of year to look for them and FYI you can hook up two Externals if you wanted too.

The 5.0 is here

Yeah, I saw the two usbs on the back. 2tb is only $75 so it’s only 50% more to get an extra tb of space. Wish I would’ve done that. Im think I need to go back and swap out for the 2 tb. Guess I need to erase everything on the one I have.

Does anyone else have issues with 5.1 surround sound in games on the XB1? My Xbox has it's HDMI going directly into the TV, and an optical connection straight into my AVR/soundbar, with the Xbox set to bitstream DD over optical (and stereo via HDMI - I assume this doesn't 'override' the optical setting).

The XB1's surround sound has always been crap, compared to my BR player and an Xbox 360 also connected to the same AVR. The surround channels are something like -6 to -9 dB lower than the mains. For every other input, my speaker levels are balanced, and volume is maintained as sounds move around the channels. For my XB1, sounds are barely audible once they move off the L/C/R channels.

This even happens for games I have on both systems - like AC4: BF. On my 360, the sound is clear all the way around me, and I can hear dialogue from characters behind me just as if they're in front of me. When I boot it up on the One, everything in the surround channels is muffled and barely audible.

What did MS do with the surround implementation on the XB1, and how do I set it to act like every other plain old 5.1 source I have and use proper balanced channel levels?

It sounds good with my setup. Your Xbox one may be defective. Maybe also try a new optical cable and see why that does. Connect the console directly to the avr via hdmi and see what happens. I think you have something in the chain that is not right. Start with the simplest solution and go from there.

I'm running mine through my avr in a 5.2.4 setup. Bitstream out and sounds amazing with the neural x upmixer.
Been playing Doom a lot recently and the heights are very active and the bass really nice!

Here is a look at Razor's keyboard/mouse combo designed for Xbox One. Obviously there are lots of keyboards that will work.

Those that have the GamePass and Play on PC as well. I finally figured out how to sort the games on the Windows Store to just show what is currently on the GamePass. Hopefully this will be helpful. I'm still looking forward to when they beef up the Gamepass library on PC as well

I'm speculating that they will show case Ori and the blind forest with it. That is one game that can show how it can handle input lag.

Microsoft Stores are Offering up to $300 Off Xbox One X Bundles with Trade-in

Has anyone here done this deal?

Just to clear this up: Microsoft is indeed offering the deal. However...Slickdeals has it a little skewed. PER the link to the Microsoft store, and the retail store in my area...the maximum trade is capped at $200.00 flat. I plan to go there Saturday. My goal is to get the Fallout Bundle for $399.00, and apply the trade, effectively knocking my cost down to 200, instead of 3. I can have them hold a bundle, but they will only do so for 24 hours...so I'll have to call tomorrow to make sure the bundle is still in store.

After calling a couple times this week and speaking to several CS reps, I was pretty optimistic about the trade up program. Of course, they make it sound like you're getting more for your trade.
It turns out the deal is less than stellar. They may as well be used car salesmen
I brought my wiped 500g in to the MS store today. I know it wasn't a special edition, but I got 49 and some change. Plus the 75 trade...124 off the 499 list. Then you choose the bundle. (Which are all 100 off apparently...) It doesnt matter that the Fallout bundle is marked a hundred off...you don't get a hundred off on top of that. I ended up at 350 after tax. Seems like black Friday deals were better, and I could have donated my 500g box to one of my daughters. Either way, they had me...thank God my wife is understanding about my electronics addiction .

April update is rolling out now


Xbox Game Pass Quests

You will be able to access quests progress directly from the dashboard and browse all quests from "My Profile."
Mini Virtual Keyboard

A new mini keyboard has been added as the default view. Now the keyboard won't hide half the screen when you're posting something during a game. However, if you want the larger keyboard, you can always reenable it in accessibility.

Power Center

The team has added a new option to restart the console to the "Power Center." Just hold down the Xbox button on the controller to access this setting.



Improved Uninstall

If you hard drive is full, you're sent to "My games & apps" to remove games. Now, the console will suggest which games to remove so that you can free up enough space.
Xbox Media Remote

The Xbox Media Remote now allows the OneGuide button to be reprogrammed to launch another program.

Non 4K Receiver . Planning to get a TCL 6 Series 4K set. My current receiver, Yamaha RX-V667, does not have 4K pass through.
In my current setup, all my inputs go into the receiver, then to the TV. My cable output has an hdmi splinter on it, one goes into the Xbox One X, the other to the receiver. All controlled by a Harmony remote. Buying a 4K Receiver is not a current option.

Any suggestions on the best way to connect this?

The TCL has optical out (but I’m not sure if this carries a 5.1 output), or the manual says I can use the HDMI ARC output, and enable ARC. ARC always plays havoc with the Harmony, and it usually the first thing to turn off. I don’t know if the TCL will output audio via HDMI without ARC.

The TCL 6 Series only has ARC on the HDMI 3 output. Not sure if it would via the other ports but I would guess no.

If you're going to go with an HDMI switcher, the one linked above is out of stock.

Either of these should fit the bill, and both are 5 x 1 switches.

$35.99 >>> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DMH9XLZ...9-d763d3fc76f8

$39.95 >>> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...AMZ00PEQ&psc=1

Not sure how many devices you have running through your AVR currently or what your budget is.

You can still use the ARC. But you will need to set the XBOX for DTS or DD output. The TCL works fine with 5.1 DTS over the ARC from the Xbox.
