MS was staying how great this is but does anyone actually use it. Can you use your Xb1 like a DVR or something? What added benefits does it bring?


I use it every day. It's quite nice. It doesn't work with the DVR features (yet).

I can just say "XBOX: Watch CNN" and it goes right to CNN. Pretty convenient at times.

Do you know if it can function as a DVR? Sorta pointless to me since my man cave has a computer screen on my coffee table next to my couch. but still a nice feature to people without a dvr.


It's a pass through...u can still do everything u could do with ur cable box before u hooked it up to the xbox one...I don't even use voice commands I use my regular remote....I mostly watch on demand shows and maybe a movie here and there ...it works great

nope... wasa lost cause from jump...should have been a feature instead of a main focus...now they are trailing behind because of that mistake...

I can't stand dumb hardheaded people...they revealed the xb1...the WORLD raged...and they trudged forward AGAINST THE PEOPLE WITH THE MONEY

makes it real hard to feel sorry for them

Does it then laugh at CNN?

I use it, it is nice to be able to turn on tv and change channels w/o searching for a remote, good for switching quickly between gaming and tv. I dual output my cable box though so the X1 doesn't have to be on if I plan on just watching tv,

Unfortunately no.

I do, and it is awesome. Not only can I change the channel by verbal command, but I can substitute the name of the program I want. "Xbox, watch NCIS" is easy mode for those times I actually feel like watching something.
