    Observations - major items


    First things first - I dig the X1 and I understand WE are all beta testers. MS can't be expected to anticipate every problem which is why these forums are helpful for them to make the system better... The tv pass through feature was most attractive to
    me. No longer needing to switch inputs sounded great. 1 - If on TV, When I change inputs to Apple TV or the 360, when I come back the tv signal is lost. I have to launch another app before switching or I have to reboot the X1 and or unplug my cable box to
    cycle it. This CAN'T be what was intended. 2 - Kinect has trouble hearing me because I have a home theater system. So I have to mute the receiver in order to give voice commands. Not sure if there is a fix other than having the volume low all the time. 3 -
    Stop listen after you choose tv. The hud overlay is lame and I don't use it. I should be able to turn off that overlay because if you don't say stop listening, it lingers for 10 seconds... 4 - Audio separation. Since I'm optical out of the X1, I should be
    able to farm kill in Borderlands 2 on the 360 while still hearing X1 tv audio. For some reason the HDMI OUT supersedes the audio and drops off if I change the video input. Not ideal. Hope these items can/will be addressed.

    :)

    Care Package Avatar Prop makes your Avatar FAT!

    Weird observation I made today while checking out the new items in Avatar Marketplace. I highlighted the Care Package prop, and when the animation began, my Avatar gained about 30 lbs. Kinda weird.

    Observation

    I've been playing most of the day waiting for Titanfall tonight and I have been lagging horribly. Multiple host migrations and several times I was paired with players from the UK. My thought is, with Titanfall on the horizon, they've dropped the dedicated
    servers knowing that probably half their players are going to move over. The game has been trash all day today. No way I should ever get paired with someone in the UK (I'm in Seattle).

    Regarding the Kinect not hearing you, how close do you have it to your speakers? I have my center speaker underneath my tv. My front right and left speakers are spread out from the tv. And I have my Kinect on top of my tv. No problems with it hearing
    me. The subwoofer is on the floor. However, I have also noticed the tv issue. It takes a while for it to actually start up. So when I turn my system on, it takes about 3 minutes for the tv video to show up

    Observations - major items

    Kinect above the tv and separation from center channel speaker about 6'. I do have the Kinect tilted downward which could steer the mic closer to the middle speaker. Again, that is of minor importance: the techs can't simulate the acoustics of every room
    in the world - just an observation.

    PS4 v X1 is tired, Jedi. I've been a Sony guy since '95, however the drama with the PS3 did shake my confidence. That said, the PS4 is pretty freakin cool but the all in one dynamic of what the X1 is "tryin" to do is very progressive. Not gonna crucify MS
    for pushing the envelope.

    Off topic - just wanted to share some early adopter experiences. Patches will show and clean some of this up.

    It shows that not everyone is struggling to use their XBox ONE.



    Welcome to the XBox ONE General Discussion board.



    Is today your first day?



    There are also sections of the forums that are related specifically to "Support" if he needs tech help.



    I bet he can find them but if you need a link just shout.

    @OP recalibrate your kinect with your TV and sound system set a level higher than you would normally play/listen/watch it at... this should help with kinect hearing you

    It's similar to this scenario:

    .

    Normal reply:

    .

    Person: My car is giving me trouble.

    Me: Sorry to hear that. Observations - major items :(

    .

    D-bag reply:

    .

    Person: My car is giving me trouble.

    Me: Mine works great!

    Hell in - thanks but I already ran that excercise. If I push the vol too much, x1 tells me to back off. I too thought that if I ran the room hot, it would solve the problem. Seems the X1 won't accept a loud home theater system. It breaks the calibration
    step if I push the noise too much.

    Again, not a noob (antiquated). I'm not looking for solutions here. Just trying to share problems. Don't expect you to solve them. If you have solutions....well then, that's another matter.
