  1. Xbox One Digital TV Tuner for DVB-S2

    Like the newly announced Xbox One Digital TV Tuner (http://news.xbox.com/2014/08/xbox-one-digital-tv-tuner) it would be great to have this for other standards like satellite (DVB-S2).
    First of all, the live TV isn't working too good in Germany. Mostly depending on the STB. A standard tuner by Microsoft would be cool then. Perhaps we can get rid of those ugly OSDs from the STBs then. :-)

    Thx!

  2. Add support for ClearQAM QAM to the Digital TV Tuner

    The Hauppauge USB tuner supports ClearQAM channels but the Xbox One software does not, please fix this with an update!

  3. 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

  4. Partner with TV app providers, such as FX now, Syfy now to provide content to non-cable subscribers

    The Xbox one is a cable cutters dream, with the addition of the TV tuner there is great potential. There are currently a slew of applications for network television such as FX, SyFy, Abc..etc. They all however require a cable subscription to use. Which defeats the purpose of cutting the cord. My suggestion is to enhance xbox live by partnering such that this content can come to cable cutters. Perhaps as an add on service or a bonus for being a live member.

  8. Turn off cable box when not watching TV

    My cable box turns on/off with my Xbox which is fine. But if I am playing games for 3 hours my cable box sits there eating energy. Can't the cable box turn on/off as the watch TV function is used?

  9. Automatically adjust volume during commercial break

    We all know commercials don't follow the FCC guidelines for loudness http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/loud-commercials. Instead of having to say "Xbox volume down" every commercial break, detect commercials, and adjust the volume automatically.

  10. Rename channel to aid in voice recognition

    Please allow the customization of a channel name as some cable providers have insanely long names for channels and we must say the entire name for voice driven channel switching.

    For example, the fox sports channel in my area is called "Fox Sports Southwest HDTV (Dallas DMA) 24/7".

    So I have to say "xbox watch fox sports southwest HDTV dallas DMA 24 7" to tune that channel by voice. Geesh...

    I'd be a big fan of simply having to say "xbox watch fox sports".

  11. Allow networked TV antennas such as SiliconDust HDHomeRun

    Media Center works with networked (ethernet) TV antennas. It would be nice if xb1 could do the same.

  12. Watch TV Delivered through Coaxial Cable Besides Over-The-Air

    I live in an apartment complex that offers a basic cable package, but no cable boxes only coaxial connections in the rooms. It would be nice to be able to hook up a coaxial cable to the outlet provided in my room and watch Cable TV through my Xbox One from it.

  13. Allow manual assignment of TV channel numbers to TV channels

    Not everyone who uses Xbox One with their IPTV box has their tv provider supported right now.

    For example, I'm with a local company in Indiana called Metronet, instead of Comcast or DirecTV.

    It's been 10 months since launch and Metronet is still not supported on the One Guide.

    So for me and others like me, allow us to manual assign channel numbers to tv channels so we can enjoy the guide and kinect like everyone else.

  15. Better integration with HDMI IN and USB TV Tuner - Two sources supported

    At the moment if you have a USB Freeview tuner plugged into your Xbox One and have Chromecast plugged into the HDMI IN port at the same time its a hassle to get it to switch between them both as they both use the same TV app. If multiple video sources were supported in some way then i would be able to run all my media through my Xbox and the only remote id need to have out would be my Xbox One media remote. At the moment its not convenient enough to have my Chromecast or USB TV tuner…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Add An Autotune Functionality to the OneGuide

    In essence what I'm asking for is that when I find something in the OneGuide that I want to watch but its in the future, so later on tonight at 10:30 for example, I'd like to be able to set an "autotune" function so that when that show is about to come on the Xbox will say that it is about to switch to that channel automatically because that show is about to come on that was autotuned. And when it would say that it is about to autotune to a channel there would be a prompt that could be…

  20. 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!
