    “Enable remote features” checkbox unchecks itself every time I exit the menu.


    I am trying to enable remote features on my Xbox Series X but whenever I check the “Enable remote features” checkbox and then exit the menu it unchecks itself. I know this because I reentered the menu and found it unchecked. I am certain all my settings are in order so I am not quite sure what the problem could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edit: I would also like to mention that my console keeps disappearing after I add it to the Xbox app on my iPhone. I can get through all the settings after adding an existing Xbox but right after it gives me the option to name my console, it gives me a “Try again in a bit. Something went wrong.” error code.

    After this, the Xbox, which I named “****”, will appear as if it has connected normally, however if I close the Xbox app on my iPhone and reopen the **** will disappear.

    I don’t know if it’s a glitch or a conflict in my settings but either way it is very peculiar.

    :)

    Remote play setup

    Hi, I hope you're doing great out there. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regard to your concern.

    Kindly make sure that the "enable remote features" are also turned on. Please follow the steps below:

    "Press the Xbox button on your controller to open the guide.

    Go to Profile & system > Settings > Devices & connections > Remote features.

    Select the Enable remote features checkbox."

    If it's already set up correctly, please disable it and then switch the power mode to "shutdown mode", after that perform a powercycle.

    ​​​

    POWERCYCLE CONSOLE​​​

    ​​​

    1. Turn off your console by holding the Xbox button on the front of the console for approximately 10 seconds. The console will turn off. ​​​

    2. Turn your console back on by pressing the Xbox button on the console or the Xbox button on your controller. ​​​

    After that, re-enable the remote features by clicking the checkbox and then switch it back to "sleep mode". This will fix the issue.

    Parent account doesn't show child exists, but child account shows parent account still.

    I have downloaded the app, logged into the parent account, went to settings, clicked on the child account, and enabled Minecraft/multiplayer. But the multiplayer/realms are still disabled in the Minecraft main menu, as is the ability to turn off the profanity filter from the account settings on minecraft.net.

    Is there any length of time I should expect before there is a change? Like a "changes may take up to 24 hours to process" type of thing?

    I should mention I changed the settings on the Xbox family settings app from both the main menu where it shows the family, as well as the settings.

    Edit:

    I've done: Family tab > Member/Child account > Content Restrictions > Enabled every checkbox

    as well as: Settings tab > Member/Child account > Manage Minecraft > Enabled every checkbox

    Edit again: I do have to go to work so I probably won't respond for a while after this edit. I hope you have a great day. Until later!

    My Xbox one isn't installing when off

    **UPDATE** I just checked my settings again and this time in the power settings under the checkbox where it says turn on xbox with voice... there is another checkbox that says "Turn off storage when the xbox is off". Uncheck the storage box... not sure
    yet if it will have any effect on the issue but it's worth trying.
