Snap TV is a bit disappointing

I haven't tried Snap TV yet but I snapped Netflix with my Laptop plugged in. Playing Zelda : ALTTP with Motion Joy and the Dualshock 3 while watching Netflix snapped? GLORIOUS. The lag is probably noticeable for newer/more twitch games but it was perfectly fine for ALTTP.

Just some silly fun obviously. I remember playing SNES back during the golden age of rpgs. Never in my wildest dreams would I of thought up of something like the XB1 delivers. It's pretty neat.


Sounds like fun! :)

Double tap the Xbox button on the controller.

Or say Xbox Switch. Both work.

I had the same problem then I switched the HDMI cable I was using to connect my cable to the X1 and it worked perfectly.

Snap TV is dumb and clogs up a large chunk of the screen only to let you view tv in a tiny window of it. PIP on a tv is much better.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

PIP takes extra setup though. They idea of snap is good if it works. Have to test it out more. It may just not be so efficient running to media events.

It's possible that snap tv might suck, but it's a reality that the Chicago Blackhawks are the best hockey team in North America. Did you see them blitz the Oilers TC? The cup stays with Chicago this season.
