I had the same problem last night, just had to turn the system off and back on again...NOT standby, physically hold the power button on the front of the console for about 5 seconds until it powers down.

The startup takes a little bit longer than normal, but I've had no problem since then. FWIW, this is the first time I've ever powered it down since I plugged it in on Day 1.

It's the X1. Have you tried the Hard Reset of your Xbox? This fixes many glitches. Hold down the power button on the front of the console. This forces a reboot. Turning the system off normally only puts it to sleep, and like most windows machines, without frequent reboots it becomes more and more glitchy.

My COD wouldn't load and this fixed it. I recommend doing this every once in a while to keep things clean. Alternately, you can tell it to turn off completely instead of sleep in the Settings under Power, but then it does not background download and it boots slower.

Turn the console all the way off. Not just sleep mode.
