  1. Give Snap Back!

    I Can't Multi-task by being able to switch between screens Now!
    Atleast turn it into a preview screen for switching screens so i don't feel like a kid who had the tv tuned into the wrong channal, like when someone starts watching tv while your gaming. removing snap makes it harder to do importain little things with the one guide.

  2. HDMI-CEC support

    Name says it all. Seems like an easy addition.

  6. 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…

  7. HDMI Passthrough while in Standby

    While the XBox one is in standby, allow the HDMI in to passthrough to the HDMI out. Currently the xbox is unable to utilize all the functionailty of my DVR therefore I would like to be able to use it without the XBOX powered on, but then be able to still utilize the XBOX snap functionality at other times.

  8. DVR Feature for Oneguide

    Would love to be able to record shows, schedule recordings, etc... could save them on the 4 tb external drive that I've connected. Seems like it would fit nicely with the guide to be able to select shows to record.

  11. Snap

    I haven't used my Xbox one since the Snap feature was removed.in fact it was a major selling point that motivated me to purchase Xbox one. Removong a feature that so many people use after it was purchased is a horrible business model. You will get zero loyalty this way. If this feature isn't restored I can't in good conscience purchase additional Microsoft products. Listen to your customers.

  12. PIP/Split Screen for Second Xbox One connected through HDMI

    It should recognize an xbox connected through HDMI and split screen to a single TV to those who has 2 Xbox One. Instead of having to buy a second TV or play in separate rooms. This feature would be awesome.

  13. TV

    Please add the OTA TV DVR to the One Guide. I was really looking forward to this feature. Please take it off hold and move forward with it. Thanks.

  14. Record with DVR cable box

    I have the ability to fast forward pause TV shows. I would like the ability to record shows and series from my one guide and work with my DVR to actually record the shows. I can currently do this with my DVR guide but I would like to do it with one guide as I use it for everything.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Surround Sound Broken in TV

    Re-posting as original thread has vanished. Content by PhoenixDigital.

    A MS rep did state that the Engineers will look into this for the Oct 2014 wave 8. However we do need to keep posting it every wave until it is addressed otherwise it will be forgotten or swept under the rug. The only official comments we have had since then are "we are looking into it" or "stay tuned for updates". It appears things like "custom backgrounds" are more important.
    This issue is a console wide issue that needs to be addressed.
    Another MS rep has also indicated that this…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
