  2. Autosave while host is idle

    The newest patch appears to have "fixed" the workaround for idle hosts. Using a play and charge kit with your controller kept your profile active and allowed the autosave to work if you walked away for hours. Now the host needs to remain active or the auto
    save doesn't trigger while they are idle. If there are not going to allow us to have dedicated servers at least let us autosave when the host is idle.

    If you are several waves in and then the person stops then yes I would also keep going. But if you notice the player is not playing on wave 1, its time to bail. What Bioware should do is update the game and if you are sitting idle for more than a few minutes,
    the game automatically disconnects you. Or even a couple rounds. BF3 does this, if you are idle for too long, you are gone. Makes perfect sense.

    [/quote]I like the idle-kick solution.

    Play to going idle

    If there's no activity on the console/controller then the screen saver kicks in.

    Scroll to the right of your dash,click on the "system" tile,console settings then display & the screen saver menu is there,thats were you can disable it.

    I'm scared to play this game because of the reputation issues because people still idle and quit - leaving me alone against 4 people.

    Can you play with friends? That way they won't go idle or quit. If you can't solve it play overwatch the multiplayer is 10x better nobody quits or idle because of XP decrease if you do it.

    Blu-ray idle xbox

    Go to settings, select preferences, and hit idle options. Now, uncheck “Show me things when idle.” This should get rid of the idle problem.

    TV turns black every 5 minutes

    It could because of the game or controls going idle.

    It will dim after a while of inactivity.

    If it's doing it while your playing, the HDMI cords could be moving.

    This will fix the current issue, but removes the idle screen. This sounds like a bug as it is not intended to idle while watching a disc based movie (or streaming content either).

    Ensure you have the latest version of the bluray app from the store. If that doesn't fix it, the work around M3tal Daz3 suggested will work, but it not a permanent fix as it removes the Idle option from the console.
