  1. Option to Record shows to DVR through SmartGlass

    It would be awesome if you could open smartglass and have the option to set your DVR to record a show when not at home or on the same wifi network as your Xbox. Would be great to be able to record a show I may have forgot about while at work

  2. Bring back the one guide search and providers buttons that have been removed

    The one guide search function has been removed. Also when searching movies etc you use to have a "providers" button which would show where, across all apps, that this content could be found and if it was free with said subscription (on Netflix for example) this was in the last update and was great but it has been intentionally removed in new update. Please bring g this feature back.

  3. 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.

  4. Better OneGuide App Integration

    Instead of going to the OneGuide Menu to then click on App Channels. Allow App Channels to be placed on All Channels along with Live TV. You can then expand the categories (Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV, etc) to see what is available. Also, treat those apps like a channel, so you can still pull up the OneGuide in the app. If you change to the channel there could be a listing of popular streaming options or the personal watch list, much like many On-Demand services. Live Services such as Sling TV or various News apps could have a schedule, just…

  5. Allow 4k pass through on Xbox One S

    Presently, 4K devices do not pass through the Xbox One S in 4K. This is a huge disappointment as I use my XB1 S for all gaming and media needs. Boxes such as DirecTV's 4K genie mini output some 4K content when plugged directly into the TV, but are reduced to 1080p when going through the HDMI pasthrough in the One S. Please update Oneguide or the console in general to address this for us media geeks.

  6. Bring back the planned TV DVR update

    Microsoft I specifically bought the Xbox One instead of the PS4 because of the planned TV DVR update you had advertised as being developed. All I need you to do is follow through with what you said you would do and finish the development of this.

  7. 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.

  8. 4k pass-through

    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!

  14. Be the Tivo/Echo Killer You Should Be

    You're so close. I love using my Kinnect (well, the voice part, I can't get the cameras to work well in my space) to change channels on my Tivo, to pause, to turn on the TV and stereo. Why not introduce DVR functions? Maybe a multiple tuner adapter or cable card (I cut the cord) as well as some home automation? I want to control my Hue lights, turn on a fan with a connected outlet... Let me ask Cortana to play a podcast while I'm gaming? There's a lot that can easily be done with what you have in…

  16. OneGuide 'Provider' search

    Please reinstate the "Providers" drop-down menu for a title's search result. In the past OneGuide would search all my installed apps for a title, but this functionality has been removed, to the detriment of the user experience.

  18. Offer Plex, Kodi and sub'd YouTube channels, as favourites for the OneGuide

    Hi MS, Please offer Plex, Kodi and our subscribed YouTube channels, as options to favourite for the OneGuide dashboard.

    Better yet, offer Plex-style functionality direct from the OneGuide, so we can view, select and stream our local content, from WiFi connected media servers, through the Xbox Media Player app.

  19. Search Function

    We used to be able to search for content across multiple platforms (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Xbox Store, even your cable/satellite box). With the Windows 10 update that function has disappeared. Bring it back or Xbox will lose the war for the living room.

  20. Start HDHomeRun app and select channel using OneGuide

    Now that the HDHomeRun app is available, it would be great to have some integration with the OneGuide. I would like to have an option for OneGuide to start the HDHomeRun app instead of the Live TV app. So, for example, when you open OneGuide the HDHomeRun app would start. And then when you select a channel in OneGuide, it would enter the channel number into the HDHomeRun app, much the same way the Live TV app enters the channel number for the cable box.
