    A Couple Issues... (Black Screen and Recent Activity)


    So, a couple issues I've been having recently that I wondered if anybody else has been experiencing and/or can shine some light on the subject (or at a bare minimum, to voice my concerns to Microsoft in the hopes that they get it fixed).

    1. So, every once in a while I'll be playing a game (it happened last night with Thief) and I'll hit the jewel button to go back to the home screen but instead of taking me back to the home screen, I just get a black screen. I can still hear audio but can't
    see anything. The only way to fix this is to shut down the console and reboot. I was having this problem a little after the Feb update but then after the March update it seemed to have stopped for a little while. However, last night it happened again so I
    guess it's not fixed.

    2. I've been trying to get an answer to this next question for a while but can't seem to - So, if you go to your profile, then scroll right you see "Recent Activity" (usually, though sometimes for some reason that category is not there) and under that category
    it lists your 3 most recently used games/apps. Well, if they are games, it lists the percentage completed (like it does under your achievements). However, my percentages are always wrong. For example: If I go to my achievements, under "Thief" I have 19% completion
    which is accurate as I currently have 190/1000 gamerscore. But under "Recent Activity" it said last night that my completion was 77%. This varies for every game I have but it is always wrong under "Recent Activity" but correct under "Achievements." I don't
    get it and I guess my slightly OCD nature is causing it to really annoy me. Anyone notice this? (I don't think this would have anything to do with internet connection as my console is always connected to the internet at all times - I've never disconnected
    the internet from it since I got it - if anyone thinks that might matter).

    So, just wondering if anyone else is experiencing these issues or knows if Microsoft knows if they are "known issues." Appreciate the thoughts...

    Thanks,

    :)

    Activity Feed Issue

    For the last couple of days, I have had some very weird issues regarding my activity feed. My console seems to be running ok, but every time i look at the activity feed, none of my videos, achievements, or things I manually try and post into it seem to
    visibly not show up. Even when i go to my profile it doesn't show up either. Only activity from 2 days ago and nothing recent. I am able to still see friends recent activity and videos, but not any of my own. I am wondering if this is a connection issue,
    or a console issue. Also, i have read some minor reports that perhaps the game Metro 2033 (Which i have also downloaded.) has perhaps caused some issues, so i don't know if that could possibly be a reason. Please help.

    Recent Activity Issue

    I'm having the same problem. My Xbox 360 activity shows up on my profile, but absolutely nothing from my Xbox One. I don't see it on Smartglass or on my online profile.

    Recent Activity Issue

    UPDATE: So I talked to a Support Agent and they said to reset my console. I haven't done so yet because it doesnt work on smartglass either, which makes me think it isn't the Xbox. So could it be the Xbox or not? I really don't want to reset it, but if it
    has to be done, then it will.

    get black screen when try to load apps or games

    There's been recent posts about the black screen as of right now microsoft is trying to solve the problem. So far the reason of the black screen is because of the latest update.. anyone who had updated their xbox recently may or may not catch this problem
