    I regret to inform you that Xbox 360 S console cannot play HD DVDs. You still need to have an HD DVD player for you to be able to play HD DVDs. However, Microsoft Xbox does not sell Xbox 360 HD DVD player anymore.

    Xbox One DVD flicker and aspect ratio!!!!!

    I have the same problem with DVD playback, however, it's only on DVDs recorded on a toshiba DVD recorder. Bought DVDs play in the correct aspect ratio on Xbox one, but recorded DVDs play in 4:3. However, on every other DVD player, they play in widescreen.
    On Xbox 360 I can adjust the aspect ratio in settings. I cannot find how to do this on the Xbox one.

    I cannot get the region code to change on my Xbox 360

    Hey there Whalo1,

    Was the console purchased back in Germany or did you recently purchase it in the USA? If the console is German and you are attempting to play the US DVD then it is more than likely not going to work due to it being in the wrong region code.

    In this case in order to play your DVD's acquired in the USA you would need to purchase a US console that will support them.

    You can find more information by clicking on the following support links.


    I hope this helps.

    Xbox Films & TV (Xbox 360 and Xbox One)

    I tested a DVD in my Xbox 360 and I was able to reproduce the audio-drop problem. I never had DVD playback problems before I relocated my Xbox 360 to this new HTMI cable :-(

    This was odd since I used this HTMI cable to connect my PS3 to the television and I didn't remember any issues.

    So I unplugged my XBox 360 and plugged in my PS3 and tried playing the same DVD.

    In the PS3 the DVD played fine and there was no audio drop. Also tested playing a blu-ray disc .... no problem

    Tested a PS3 game .... no problem.

    So is there a compatability issue with XBox 360 and some HTMI cables. Is there a specific specification of cable that is require to play 'Movies & TV' without audio skip ? Or is there specific setting on the XBox 360 and the TV that I need to set in order
    to make things work ? My TV is a Sony Bravia.

    Summary (using same htmi cable):

    XBox 360 - playing games - FINE (no problems)

    XBox 360 - playing DVD - BAD audio-drop problem

    XBox 360 - playing 'Movies & TV' - BAD audio-drop problem

    PS3 - playing 'Movies & TV' - FINE (no problems)

    PS3 - playing DVD - FINE (no problems)

    PS3 - playing games - FINE (no problems)

    Anyone NOT getting the Xbox ONE, post here!

    Happy with my XBox 360 and heavily invested in my collection of favorite XBox 360 games. I have no use for a Microsoft game console that can't play my games. It's like someone trying to sell me a new DVD player that can't play my existing DVDs.
