Just bought a Xbox one a week ago. I haven't been able to figure out how to turn the xbox on while saying "Xbox on". I went in my settings and have all the boxes checked but thinking maybe one of my settings are wrong?

Did you calibrate the Kinect? It's important to do that with the volume of the TV ABOVE normal levels so it can test for interfering audio.

After a system update you have to do a manual hard reboot to get it to work. It's a little bug that'll be fixed. One hard reboot after the update and it'll be sorted.

Was wondering same thing, I turn it off perfectly and I use every other. Pics command perfectly but xbox on, takes like 15 tries to finally work. And yes everything is calibrated fine.

Is your Xbox on "instant on" or "energy saving" mode?

Ya after an update it hasn't worked since and everything is setup and calibrated properly. I've had my XB1 since Feb and it was working fine before

I have instant on box checked. Voice controls seem to work pretty well when the Xbox is on but once I turn it off and say "xbox on" nothing happens.

Recalibrate the Kinect, but turn the tv volume way the hell up so it'll be more sensitive to commands.

Doesn't work I outside the US. Dunno if that's your problem or not. You can go into settings and change the kinect mode to US, but then it might not recognise your accent
There are things worth fighting for. And then there is optional DLC in a video game...
