My cablebox from optimum is not working with the xb1 anymore. It worked for two days then stopped. I tested the wires, the tv, even another xb1. Everything works but the xb1 Wong show a video or sound signal for the cablebox. The HDMI in on the xb1 works with other devices just not my io box.

LeCreuset890d ago

That's weird that it would stop working. I'm not that familiar with either, but just from a general troubleshooting standpoint I would try unplugging the HDMI, resetting the Xbox, the tv, and the cable box. You may have to power them all off and unplug them for about a minute. Then hook everything back up and turn them all on. A friend of mine had a similar problem with his PS3 that I resolved that way.

Yup this is the first thing to try. Sometimes HDMI devices get confused and stop talking to each other properly, resetting them all usually clears things up.

I don't understand who asked for this feature in the first place. You have to have both boxes anyway so surely telling your Xbox to play TV is going to be no easier than picking up your remote?

I guess the idea was to have a cheaper way to be important in the TV space (for mass market appeal while shoving out competitors in TV and gaming).The method requires less time, resources and is more reliable (as it just needs a set top box so they are not relying on third party support) than iptv (which, funnily enough, is the way TV is going)

Voice can be faster than grabbing the remote and navigating a menu or guide when you're first rushing into catch the news or a sports match. All you have to do is say "Xbox On, Xbox Watch TV, Switch to {Channel}", all while you walk in the door, take off and hang up your coat, and get something to eat or drink. all without having to go to the living room to pick up the remote. Its not perfect, but I'd expect that as time goes on MS will make this better especially with the Nokia acquisition and their talented engineers. Who knows what is possible.

@dredwindian "Voice can be faster than grabbing the remote and navigating a menu or guide when you're first rushing into catch the news or a sports match. All you have to do is say "Xbox On, Xbox Watch TV, Switch to {Channel}"

You missed the part where you have to pick up the remote to turn the TV on :/

So for anyone with unsopported cable box it would be -

Pick up remote>turn TV on>Xbox on>Xbox watch TV>Pick up other remote to change channel.

watching a game while playing is useful as is pulling up info without having the game stopped or looking away from the game

Stsonic: Kinect can turn your tv on for you fwiw

This happened to me to. I found that you have to do a little maintenance. You have a lot of things going on and it seems if you have to many things going sometimes things lock up or refuse to work. What I have found to fix this is you have to quit old apps running. So in the dash hover over any apps that are open or you used before and press the start button (3 lines) and go to quit. Close as many as you can that you ain't using plus the TV app. Then start it up again by going to TV. Should work fine now. Seems that too many apps get to running and locks up if you never close down old apps. Give it a try let me know if it helps.

It seems to help to keep closing apps that you don't care to keep running in the back. So if you open a app it stays open and might want to keep in mind that its open and close it out. After you done using it.

Think I would just press a button on a remote. Having everything constantly on, wasting electricity, wired through the console and half of the time it all doesn't work, it all sounds like an unnecessary mess.

TAURUS-555890d ago

XD XD

suck it ¡¡

that happens when you dont buy the PS4.

MS doesnt give a sht about non-USA territory.

gcolley890d ago

Are you 12 years old or just act like it on forums?

people disagree with you for doing the only right thing : enjoying your console.

sad fanboys, get a life lol

a08andan890d ago

If this fault is because Microsoft did not consider this, then it is a SUPER MEGA FAIL. I hope they fix it for those who purchased an Xbox One or plan to do that.

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt890d ago

those who buy Xbox one in the Europe should know that the TV features would only work well in the US. i applaud you guys for wasting yur money on a console with even less features in Europe … should be buying Xbox for the games it will give you guys! even tho it won't be many.. so why buy the Xbox lol love wasting money?

falviousuk890d ago

Do you own shares in Sony, why does it bother you so much that people want to have an xbox, its their money and their choice, but shy does it bother you so much that they chose to buy one.

Oh wait, I understand ...... T R O L L

Loving the xbox and its games, and find the TV integration far better than i expected. Being able to walk in the roomn and say 'Xbox On' to turn on the console and tv and get right into the action or watch some TV.

However, integration isnt fully done yet in the UK, thats supposedly coming next year and will be even better.

Stop being such a childish fanboy and enjoy the games. not the plastic, wires and silicon

aiBreeze890d ago

^^^ Why are Xbox One fans so obsessed with Sony? You do realize you actually mention Sony and PS4 more than the haters do in these sort of articles.

@falviou

dude get a life.

@UnRivaLeD

First off there are games on the XBO, and for people who enjoy their exclusives and XBL, then it's natural for them to want to upgrade to the XBO.

That being said anyone who bought the console in EU was setting themselves up to be disappointed. M$ said countless times that EU would not be able to use many of the features the XBO has to offer Day 1 due to EU's providers and non-standardized cable system, on top of American Football not being a huge draw in EU. The EU features aren't coming until 2014, and it makes no sense for someone to buy the XBO in EU right now. Just wait, and hopefully there will be a price drop by then.

MS is kinda short sighted when it comes to these things... I kinda feel sorry for xBoners. One Mega fail after another.

amiga-man890d ago

I don't own an Xbone and my Sky works just fine without it.

falviousuk890d ago

I own an xbox with my sky box plugged into it and works just fine, even better being able to jump from tv to gaming with just a sentence.

Thank you

Stsonic890d ago

If you read the description it says the problem arises with 50hz content.

LoveSpuds890d ago

guess what, I can touch a button and switch between sources in a second flat....whats your point chief?

SirBradders890d ago

Seriosly mate how many times do you swap between tv and games a day in all honesty?I don't know about you but i mainly play games as my form of entertainment which im sure most gamers do.
You sound like for years you sat there with 3 tvs on, one playing COD one watching football and the other with hardcore porn.
You have effectively paid £430 to save you a couple of seconds a day in swapping from tv to games PML.
Unless you genuinly prefer xbox exclusives which aint many might i add and most aint to great because they've been milked IMO.

eternal1973890d ago

wow MS drop the ball again with the whole media center functionality, did none of their engineers consider this while testing the xbox?

Just shows the UK is still an afterthought for Microsoft.
