    Idle Pop-Ups / Dimming Screen Watching TV Through XB1X/XB1S - Alpha Skip Ahead


    So I noticed that with the latest Alpha Skip Ahead, and this is TBH really annoying ... while you are watching TV through the OneGuide ... it now dims the screen and pops up the suggestions (if you have them turned on - had to turn them off just because of this) to whatever your setting are.

    It's honestly obnoxious because it does it after sitting and watching things for awhile, gotta turn the controller on and move it so that the dimming goes away. I noticed it also happened watching something on Prime Video.

    My only workaround has been to set the screen dim to the max settings but if you set it to the minimal settings just to test it, good golly miss molly that would be annoying..

    Is this literally to force those of us that still use our consoles as media centers to stop using them?! Or is this to make it so annoying to use anything that we upgrade. Trust me, several of us would love to upgrade but getting ahold of a XBSEX is nearly impossible and I'm not going to spend the money on a XBSES considering my XB1X will be relegated to my backup system (to replace my XB1S). I don't know it really seems like Microsoft is getting less and less consumer friendly towards those of us who use the console for what they advertised it for in the first place ... hell, I used SNAP literally a ton back when that was round before they took that from us. :sighs:

    And yes, before the bot comes in here (or mod), I already reported it on console.

    My Opinions, Thoughts and Concerns.

    They can't dim the screen they want you to have your tv running through it imagine watching you're favorite show and 15 minutes in screen dims because technically it's been idle that whole time

    Check the settings on the TV with the TV remote Menu.

    What do you think about new, experimental dashboard?

    In the alpha skip ahead, still no update. "Alpha Skip Ahead" clearly means something else... :')
