  1. Need an option to put console into controller sync mode from guide/power menu


    With the future of console streaming we'll be syncing our bluetooth controllers to our phones but then to use it on the console itself again we have to hit the sync button on the console and it would be nice to have an option to start that from the guide (maybe settings tab) or even from the power menu from holding the nexus button. Unless of course it assumed we'll have a separate steaming controller we leave synced to our phones.

    Hitting it whilst streaming would mean when pressing the sync button on the controller would allow it to disconnect from the phone and in turn connect to console again in one move. Easier to end a phone streaming session then.

    Digitally Download Install

    Hi there, Jim! If you're asking if your Xbox will install games and updates while your console is powered down, the answer is YES! :) To do that, your console will need to be in "Instant On" mode instead of "Energy Saver" which puts the console fully to
    sleep (off) instead of standby.

    To turn this mode on, you will need to press Menu on your controller, then go to Settings --> Power & Startup. Under "Power Options," you can choose "Instant On" mode, which will allow your console to check for updates while powered down.

    Also, in this same Settings menu, you should see a box or option for "Automatically download updates." Make sure this is selected, and all should be well!

    In this "Instant On" mode, when you install a game remotely (via Smartglass or Xbox.com) your console will wake up and begin installing the item you've chosen to download. Also, if you begin to install a digital download, but turn off your console before
    it is finished, the Xbox will continue to install that title, then fully power down when the install is complete.

    Hope this helps!

    Xbox One Controller Can't Sync After Update

    Hello Victor!

    Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. I understand that your controller is no longer syncing wirelessly to your console. When you do use the USB cable does the control un-sync as soon as you unplug the USB? I recommend safely powering down your
    console then unplugging the power supply from the wall and the console. Also remove the batteries from the controller. After that wait a few minutes or at least for the LED light on the power supply unit to fully shut off. Once that is done leave the batteries
    out of the controller and plug it into the console with a USB then use the controllers Xbox Guide button to turn the console on. Once the console powers on put the batteries back into the controller and disconnect the USB and see if it stays synced. Also here's
    a useful support article:Troubleshoot your Xbox One Wireless Controller


    Please let us know with a reply how it goes!

    Controller sync button doesn't work for particular controller. Please take a look.

    Hey ETsnipers789! It sounds like you have quite a few controllers, do you perhaps already have 4 controllers synced to this particular console? This could be preventing the controller in question from syncing up, can you try disconnecting any other wireless
    controllers by pressing and holding the Guide button for 3 seconds, then choose the turn off controller option. This may free up a spot to sync your controller, since when you just turn off the console the controllers are still synced. I'm leaning towards
    you'll need a repair as iRayDawg has mentioned but let us know!

    what is the proper way to fully shutdown xbox one s

    Hello Ashrafqadir,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. There are two ways you can power off the console completely.

    1. Power cycle the console--Hold the power button on the console itself until it shuts off.
    2. menu option turn off console---Hit the guide button on controller, go to far right icon(system), go to bottom to turn off console.
    3. You can also go to power and start up and select energy saving mode this will fully shut down the console every time you turn it off.
    Thanks,

    Brad
