How to get to the settings area? Also, Dolby Digital Audio via Digital Optical?

#1BigSnappaXPosted 12/1/2013 7:02:17 PM
Searching all over for the settings cant find it... must be overlooking it somehow....

also, can the XB1 output audio via digital?? my surround sound and tv only outputs via/ optical cable.... Any help/tips would be appreciated... i was thinking there was an option in the settings area, which is why i was searching for it....

1. Press the Xbox button to return to Home.
2. Press the Menu button, and then select Settings.

try saying "xbox, help" in the dashboard. and if that gets you the settings menu, make sure to pin it for later. i think you can also find it in "my games & apps."

edit: what they said ^

I have mine set up to use optical, it only works for games, not for tv for the time being

I can get into settings but how do I select any of them. It keeps kicking me to the previous screen whenever I try to move to a setting.

Hey CapwnD nice to see you again.

One question (I know it might be dumb): Is DTS 5.1? Because if it is then I have no problem using optical audio, like I did with my 360.

Never mind, I just did some research on my own and it says DTS, like Dolby Digital, is 5.1. But unfortunately most games aren't encoded with DTS.
