"Due to HDMI latency issues, Penello reasoned, using the Xbox One's HDMI pass-through feature for any kind of "interactive" entertainment would result in lag during gameplay, which suggests that Microsoft wouldn't recommend playing an Xbox 360 through the One either. "

Well, what the hell CAN you use it for?


"The HDMI port was designed with passive video viewing in mind, Penella said, where latency issues wouldn't disrupt the experience as dramatically as it would if you were playing a game on a connected device"

That's what it is meant for. But they're saying you CAN hook other things up to it, it just won't be as up to par as it's designed for video only.

But the X1 already plays DVDs and Blu-Ray... right?

If it had proper backwards compatibility we wouldn't need these hoops.

Oh. I guess there is that. Admittedly I've never used one before, so I have no honest clue how it works.

<_<

With this revelation, yeah, a cable box is basically the only thing you can plug into the X-Box One's HDMI port. Of course, with cable on the way out because of streaming instant video services, the long-term appeal of such a feature is highly questionable. I already know people who don't even have TV services outside of Hulu, Amazon, and Netflix.
