  2. X1 what are you looking fwd to the most?

    Voice switching between game/netflix/tv. I find changing inputs and hunting for remotes REALLY annoying.

    Not auto-switching to HDMI input source

    TV is configured, all the stuff works (tests for mute, info). When configured, it turn on the TV correctly, but it doesn't switch to the console HDMI input source. In fact, if I switch manually, and then turn on the console, it return to TV source.

    So I think it only sends the HDMI-CEC command for turn on TV, but not for switch input source. So if I am on console HDMI input source, it sends the turn on command, so the TV goes to the default source, the TV.

    Please fix it. For media remote it would be good the auto-switching source feature, if not we need the TV remote for switching the input source.

    You cannot do this, but you can run something through the HDMI in and say "Xbox, Watch TV" to use it.

    Yeah but the lag makes it useless. I will say that my HDMI Switch works though it kinda sucks because the voice command is "Xbox Watch Channel" and that's it.. it's slow, doesn't work that often and end up just using the remote which let's me select what
    input I want.

    Not auto-switching to HDMI input source

    The Xbox One doesn't use HDMI-CEC. Everything simply uses infrared commands. So it's not going to automatically switch inputs to the right one. I suppose it could switch an input if the TV is already on and the code to power on the TV changes the input
    if the TV is already on.

    Xbox One Randomly Turns On

    Is the Xbox turning on at the same time that you are turning on your TV or switching inputs on your TV? My Samsung TV switches on my Xbox automatically.

    Newbie question: Switching back to television mode

    Most hdtv's out there are going to have a source or input button on the tv and remote to allow you to switch between the different components you have things plugged into on the tv. Just shutting off the Xbox or tv doesn't take you ff of that component.
    Yes, unplugging the tv will switch it back, but using that input/source button on the tv or remote makes it much easier.
