We know that Xbox One is an all-in-one box solution from Microsoft that besides being a games console also offers you to do stuff that you would normally do with your set-top box or an entertainment hub, watch TV or stream content.
this, is nice. I never like messing with picture settings on my TV and audio settings of my speakers. Default everything (except more bass lol). I'll see how this works. cool feature microsoft
If everything works as promised, I can see people falling in love with their X1's. I just seems to simplify everything.
Nice! More awesome features. Can\t complain!
@Blaze929 You sir have failed your TV, if you haven't adjusted the contrast, sharpness, etc... :D
What! you... you don't like... playing with the options on you're HDTV. (mines a Samsung) Figuring out the functions that make a tv set truly yours; that's half the fun. (at least for me it is) Gateway MT6706 2008
I would love to know why people are disagreeing with you and a few people who replied. Very sad people indeed.
MORE BASS!! Me and my subwoofer and in a love/hate relationship.
You should really look into downloading something like AVCHD. It's free and allows you to adjust your TV to improve the picture by quite a bit. This is a cool feature if it works well, so long as for those like me it reverts back to an adjusted setting that I would have for watching movies.
I'm currently using a projector. Wonder if it can calibrate for a projector screen as well.
I have an Epson 5020 myself. I would go the other way and calibrate the picture with my projector once the xbox is up on the screen.
Just got an Epson 8345. I basically have a 120" crystal clear 1080p image staring back at me from my wall. I honestly don't know how I can ever go back to regular TV screens.
I'm so buying a projector on Black Friday now lol. Best idea ever for my basement area. Come midnight 11/21 I'll have my PS4 and XB1 up and running for my next gen enjoyment. It's finally here, Friday can't come soon enough :-)
Make sure you have the wall for it and if you do, use a nice flat (matte) white paint. Seriously, the image I'm getting is mind blowing.
It only does everything
That is incredible! I was just about to buy a calibration disc to prep my TV for my Xbox One. That's a really great feature.
You can get AVCHD for free. The calibration discs you buy aren't any better IMO.
Thank you for that. I'll try it out.
That's very cool if it works. Wonder how it functions.
Sweet! Get some Logitech 650 support and Im there!
I game on my PC monitor, so I don't know if this will work for me - not that I need to calibrate my monitor anyway... The IR blaster is a cool feature - one of those things that can be used to describe "next-gen," besides just resolution or framerate.
Yep. BAADFOOD(reddit name) the guy that got his XB1 at Target early told me this several days ago. Not related to what I said above. IR code set-up here http://imgur.com/a/AtQh8
where in the h#ll does it say it will calibrate your tv for you. it says CALIBRATE TV just like most games it will give you a test screen to use. GEEZ
I'm sure it will run you through the standard color calibration screens that any calibration disc runs you through which is more than just adjusting the gamma/contrast which most games have. I highly doubt it's going to magically change all the options for you though as a lot of people seem to think it will... Either way it's an awesome feature to add.
Just what I was thinking as well, still nice to have it built in.
To properly calibrate you will need a blue filter. They make red and green filters too, but they aren't absolutely necessary. I doubt the Xbox will be able to calibrate so well that it can adjust the color calibration 100% properly. In some cases this is entirely subjective and based on the persons eyes, and most TV's don't provide the feed back required to calibrate externally. You can get them from THX.com for a few dollars.
hmmm...so I wonder how this will work for those that run their cable box into a sound system then to their TV?
Do you point the Kinect at the screen to use as a sensor? That sounds stupid, so it must be a manual calibration as you need a sensor for it to be automatic.
I actually figured it would work something like that. That you have to point kinect towards your TV so that it can see the colours. The Xbox would then adjust Xbox specific colour settings to display the proper colour output through your Xbox. Wouldn't work properly with sharpen filters etc though. Honestly don't think that it will tweak your TV settings itself.
That's the question of the day right there. my set up is a 110inch HD projector, I use a receiver for surround sound. I wonder if I will be able to turn the projector, and the receiver on and off and control the receivers volume with voice commands. right now my uverse box via HDMI is hooked to one of the receiver HDMI inputs, my 360 to another. The receiver is hook to the ceiling mounted projector via a long ass HDMI cable from the receivers output, that's fished through the walls and comes out behind the projector. surely they figured on someone having this kind of set up.
Now if only the X1 could dispense sandwiches and beer, then it really would the One. For now I'll take what it offers. Few more days....
This is awesome!
Great idea, hope it works decent. Of course it won't be able to produce a true calibration but hopefully contrast and brightness at least.
