  1. Battery monitor


    I noticed with the fall update you can no longer press the center button (big glowing X) to assess your controllers battery state of charge.Compared to the 360 elite cord/battery interface,Microsoft backstepped(it sucks).Is it just something you overlooked?Or
    has it been determined that it’s not something we need?The charging battery creates a hum in the headset for everyone in the party except the guy who is charging his controller battery.It’s annoying that the next gen console isnt as smooth as the 360,and I’d
    like to know if it’s-oh-look at that,it just popped up in the right csude of the screen.But,hey,we get a hum in the headset of party members when the controller is plugged in-original Xbox 1and the 1s.

    :)

    Checking battery

    add a new set each morning. The controller maybe should have required another battery if it indeed does so much more than the 360. Maybe they figured that a battery monitor would again take more battery, LOL.

  3. How often do the batteries in your control run out?

    I had that problem when I had the USB pack controller. That's why I got the battery powered one. There should always be an option in the console's setup to have a battery icon in the corner so you can monitor that.

  4. Battery monitor

    yeah,only works on the home screen-in a game or app you cannot see the state of charge of the battery until the ‘green light pops’-and you should issue a proper controller battery and cord with a 360 elite-esque interface ( large,proper locking Juncture)
    to everyone who bought an Xbox 1 or 1s-I could not believe I ‘upgraded’ to this crap

    I love it. @ dudeski what battery life do you speak of? And snap is fantastic for getting to party options and friends quickly via voice.

    * edit. You mean controller battery life monitor. Got it. I never paid attention to the one on 360. My controller would just start to disconnect and I knew it was time to plug it in or put the fresh battery in.

    Monitor Flickering

    [quote user="PegasusStrike"]I've since purchased an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and my monitor stopped having the "flickering" issues when I turned my light or fan off when it's connected to my computer. When I use my Xbox, I plug it into my UPS,
    but the monitor still goes dark for 2-3 seconds when I turn my light off or my fan off.[/quote]Is your monitor plugged into a battery-backed UPS outlet or a surge suppressed UPS outlet? Is your UPS showing voltage fluctuations when you turn on/off the light
    and fan?

    If the monitor is not on a battery-backed UPS outlet, try that first. You should also install whatever monitoring software your UPS came with and see what it's showing when you turn on/off the light and fan.
