    Idle Options bug - Xbox One October 2017 update


    I just updated and watching USB TV on my XBOX One where the default Settings/Preference/Idle Options - Preferences now dims my TV session after 10 mins - I cannot disable dimming, only set to max 60 minutes. Why isn't this disabled for TV - I assume other
    apps like Netflix, YouTube, DVD have same issue? Is this an oversight in testing the update before release?

    :)

    Might just have to reinstall the game. Bioware is sending out updates/patching the game as we progress toward October of 2017. Look for these bugs being fixed in the near future!

  3. Xbox One October 2017 Update

    Please note that what I am about to say is purely my opinion on the October 2017 update. I do not expect Microsoft to change it just because of an unhappy customer or expect you to agree with me. Everyone is entitled to their OWN OPINION.

    I do not like it at all. I find that the new menu is even more of a cluster *Censored* than before. I find it tedious to navigate to my friends list or party menu. I especially despise the fact that Notifications are now in the Settings tab. Why would they
    be there? I could understand if it were in the Messages tab instead. That would make more sense to me at least.

    I have noticed that it takes quite a bit longer to load my games or apps (Not Games AND Apps menu) and to join or start a party. My friends have also noticed this.

    Also, ever since this update, it has been telling me to connect to Xbox Live when I already am connected. I can access all my social stuff like being in a party with other people, but I cannot play any games online. This could possibly be a problem on my
    side, but since I am here I figured I could add it just in case others are having this same problem. If this is a bug, hopefully it will be fixed soon along with that weird party glitch that makes it where some people can't hear each other. Some of you might
    know the one I am talking about.

    There are a lot of postings on Uservoice over ability to customize dashboard/home screen - to vote for or add your own suggestions for others to vote for.

    I don't think even moderators scan these forums anymore.

    Blu-ray idle xbox

    Go to settings, select preferences, and hit idle options. Now, uncheck “Show me things when idle.” This should get rid of the idle problem.
    This will fix the current issue, but removes the idle screen. This sounds like a bug as it is not intended to idle while watching a disc based movie (or streaming content either).

    Ensure you have the latest version of the bluray app from the store. If that doesn't fix it, the work around M3tal Daz3 suggested will work, but it not a permanent fix as it removes the Idle option from the console.

    Why is it so difficult to find a Kinect device for Xbox One?

    Good day

    The kinect for Xbox One was discontinued on 25 October 2017.

    It will be hard to find an adapter for it, most probably second hand aswell.

    Error in update of October 23, 2017

    Hi there,

    please try the manual power cycle steps like mentioned on the following link, be sure to wait at least 60 seconds before powering on again:
    http://support.xbox.com/en-us/xbox-one/console/power-cycle-console

    If that doesn't fix the issue please try these steps

    1. Power off your console, and then unplug the power cord to ensure that the console is completely powered off.
    2. Wait 30 seconds.
    3. Plug the power cord back in.
    4. Press and hold the BIND button (located on the left side of the console) and the EJECT button (located on the front of the console), and then press the Xbox button on the console.
    5. Continue holding the BIND and EJECT buttons for 10-15 seconds.
    6. Listen for two “power-up” tones a couple of seconds apart. Note If you don't hear two power-up tones after 15 seconds, it means this failed. Likewise, if you hear any “power-down” chirps, that also means this failed.
    7. You can release the BIND and EJECT buttons after the second power-up tone.
    8. This should show a menu with the option to factory reset the console, if it does not please try the steps again

    If both fail then it's best to contact official Xbox Support via Phone or Microsoft Support Chat at
