  1. Conncting the cable box and getting it to function


    I have a Entone cable box with a Hydra model. xbox cannot find that model of a cable box so I cannot connect/control the cable channels through the xbox....what can I do? The auto search mode sends a signal but it does not connect with the cable box. So
    I answer no. the system then tells me it has identified my box.....but it does not work.

    :)

    The xbox one does not support the dvr function of cable boxes as of now but a lot of people are asking for this function and hopefully it will come with a future update. Until then you'll have to use the remote that controls your cable box.

    XB1 doesn't play nice with my cable box (Samsung SMTH3270)

    Once the cable box is passed thru the xbox one's hdmi-in port, the cable box ceases to function properly. It won't change channels via any input thru xbox
    and the cable box's own remote stops being able to control the cable box. Eventually, the cable box freezes up and I have to reboot. Rebooting cable box and/or xbox doesn't seem to solve the issue. Please help, I'd like to use TV thru
    my Xbox One!

    Cable provider: Time Warner

    Cable Box: Samsung SMT-H3270

    X1 Platform/Xbox One Set Up

    To get the TV feature to function properly you need run the automatic setup and identify your cable service provider,
    the manufacturer of your cable-box/satellite receiver, and also
    make sure that there is no interference blocking the infrared signal between your Kinect 2.0 and your set-top box/receiver.

    So for example in the automatic setup I entered:

    My internet and cable service is Verizon Fios

    My cable box receiver is made by Motorola

    On my first attempt I couldn't get everything to function properly, even after I entered correct information, until I re-positioned my Kinect sensor.

    No TV Through Charter Cable/Motorola box

    All's well - turns out the HDMI on the cable box was bad - switched out the cable box with Charter and now works great. Really impressed with the Xbox One functionality - great product.

    CABLE BOX REQUIRED TO PLAY XBOX ONE?

    Um, no. A cable box will NOT be required in order for the xbox one to function. It is only required if you want to use the tv functions, which is honestly a no brainer.

    Xbox360 S won't turn on but makes beep sound

    I'm assuming you are conncting through HDMI? If so, check the connection of that cable, and try again. Try using a different cable. Are you connecting to a TV or a PC monitor?

    -

    If you are not connecting through HDMI, make sure ALL video/audio connections are fully connected.
