  1. Extend OTA DVR record limit

    Add an option to extend the over the air live TV DVR limit beyond 30 minutes. Utilizing an external hard drive I have more than enough space to record more than 30 minutes worth of tv.

  2. Allow 4K HDMI pass-through support for Xbox

    Was super excited to be an early adopter for the One S. I'm definitely more about the media side of the xbox one and fell in love with the original and live tv. Since then I've upgraded to Directv 4k which is still in it's early days but I want to make sure I'm ready. I missed using the xbox to control my STB. A little disappointed that the new xbox one s does not support 4k input yet. Please have your engineers research this and work towards a firmware update to allow 4k pass-through. Thank you!

  3. Sign in to your cable provider account to get cable on Xbox one

    I don't have a HD box and want to have cable on my Xbox one so I was thinking what if we just sign on Xbox one with our username and password for our cable provider. We can block what people see and can be use just like on your tv.

  4. TV Tuner setup and use while offline

    I believe you should be able to use the TV tuner to scan for channels and watch OTA TV without the use of one guide or an internet connection.

    When military units deploy, there is often unsecure cable signals available but never internet. As a result, it is not possible to watch TV because there is no connection to download a guide.

  5. Develop an external DVR add-on

    Develop an external dvr add-on box that would include CPU/RAM, 1-4 HD spaces and 4 slots for slotting in dual tuner cards for a total of 8 tuners. It would only have a power cord, USB cable to Xbox One for video signal & syncing guide data and an aerial socket to connect to wall. There would be no burden what so ever on the Xbox at all.

  6. Bring Back OneGuide Search Feature

    As of the most recent update available through the Xbox Preview Program, the search button on the OneGuide tab is no longer there (it used to be on the far right side of the screen). It's difficult to put into words how immensely useful this feature was, and how often I utilized it. I don't have cable, so I rely on 10+ Xbox apps to watch movies and TV. Searching across all of these apps for specific titles saved so much time and headache. I don't understand why this feature was taken away and would really like to see it…

  10. Ability to Have the XBOX automatically chance back to the channel we're really watching, when it comes back on from Commercials.

    When we're watching a Live TV show, and we change the TV channel when goes on a commercial; making the XBOX ONE automatically change back to the channel we're really watching would be great. So we wouldn't have to keep our hands on the remote, checking to see if our show came back on. The XBOX can automatically snap it on when it comes back on from commercials.

  11. Previous channel button

    Add a "previous/last channel" feature. The Y button is currently not used. Just assign that

  12. Use the Chatpad Number Keys to Enter OneGuide Channels

    I'd like to have the ability to use the number keys on the new chatpad to manually enter tv channels within the OneGuide. The guide is very crisp and clean, but not being able to manually enter a channel number makes it so I have to scroll through hundreds of channels. Being able to do this while viewing the channel lineup and also while watching a show would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Integrate BBC iPlayer into OneGuide

    [Mod edit: Changed title from "why isn't iPlayer in the one guide" to better reflect this idea.]

  14. Option to Remove OneGuide from the NXOE Dashboard

    Please let the OneGuide be hidden or disabled. I don't have TV and have ZERO use for the OneGuide. To have to scroll by the new tab just to get to everything it is quite annoying. It slows things down and uses alot of data for people on metered connections.

  15. OneGuide - Hide Apps that you don't use

    The new update gives you recommendations from youtube, amazon, netflix etc.

    But it also shows videos from apps i don't use like blink box, weak.

    The ability to hide apps i don't use and display ones that i do use would make the one guide more appealing

  16. Over-the-Air TV DVR - NAS Support

    Once DVR functionality is added for OTA TV, it would be great if the Xbox could write the recorded shows to a network location.

    In my home we have a Synology NAS, and I currently have a laptop setup with a TV Tuner to record shows to my Synology. I then use the "play to" functionality to play the shows to the Xbox One. With having so much storage on my NAS, I like not having to worry about taking up too much space with storage. Additionally, I would like being able to use my NAS to save recordings instead…

  19. Change channels with the Xbox One Media Remote using USB TV Tuner

    I bought the official Xbox One USB TV Tuner. Its setup and working fine. I setup OneGuide and can change channels using OneGuide menu. But on the Xbox One Media Remote I cannot change channels using the up and down arrows. I can change volume and all other buttons work fine. I want the ability to use the channel buttons to control the USB TV Tuner channels.
    Is this just a glitch for me or are others facing this issue?

  20. Use Kinect IR for Media Remote

    I have the Media Remote which is great that it works without Kinect, but is sometimes annoying if a coffee table or something else is in the way and doesn't work as the console sits below where a TV's sensor would be. It would be nice if a Kinect was plugged in, then it would use its IR instead as it is placed (in my case) above the TV where it would always be able to get the signal.
