For some dumb reason the first time I say it I always say "Xbox turn on", which never works. I then say "Xbox, On" and it works fine. I don't know why I keep saying it like that, you'd think I'd learn by now. When I actually say it the way Kinect wants it said it works. Maybe your doing something like that as well?

Its strange though, because I think the command to turn it off is "Xbox, turn off". I might be wrong, but that always works for me. Dunno why I can say "turn" on the off command, but not the on command.

Bottom line is Kinect can be finicky and particular, hopefully they expound on its vocabulary since it is a pretty cool device when it works right.

I created a GamerTag "Xbox Turn Off Yes." The hope was that someone would encounter his Drivatar in Forza and say his name. Unfortunately, I didn't notice until after confirming that it cut off the "es" so he is "Xbox Turn Off Y."

:-(

If u go to setting > power managment
You need to make sure your on the right setting cause theres like a power save mode or another forgot name but itll say like "something mode" turn Xbox on with your voice

No crap dude. He said it doesn't work every time. Meaning it does work sometimes. SO if he's turning it off and then complaining that it's not working ... then ... I dunno what to say.

Don't worry. MS will release a 1GB patch to fix it.

Dunno.. I sometimes say it twice, but I am almost always doing something else while getting ready to sit down to play or watch TV. I say it when I am putting my keys and wallet up, plugging in my phone and ipod, changing out of work clothes etc..
