To invite people to preview, you have to be in the Xbone Dash Preview app and there is a big "Invite" icon. Then just select your friends and it sends it out after a day or two or three.

This backwards compatibility timing makes me understand why Master Chief Collection was rushed so badly...

It was one of their few lucrative exclusive titles, so naturally they had to re-milk it before announcing backwards compatibility.

The only other Xbox exclusive worth mentioning is Gears of War, I'm sure they would like to re-milk that cash cow also, so I'm curious to see if they allow it to be backwards compatible on the Xbone.

I got invited (thanks if that was a Tduber)... do I have to download something? I am at the preview page, but it looks like there is a delay between invite and ability to play Mass Effect. I'm trying to play with a disc but it doesn't seem to work yet.

They already announced a gears remake for this fall so I doubt it will be backwards compatible. Right now the feature is still in beta so there are only a handful of games that are back compatible. You can google to find out which ones exactly.

Got the Xbox Dashboard Preview invite. Not sure if everyone got that or if one of you fools invited me. Thanks if you did.

After I registered, it said it may take 72 hours to confirm or something like that so maybe that is why you can't play Mass Effect yet.


(this is the preview program where you get the xbox updates earlier than genpop, correct?)

It appears as though you can accept the invite download and do the registration, but then there is a 72 hour window for MS to accept you into the program.

I am still waiting for a reply too.

I tried it with one of the pre-release builds and it was extremely jittery. maybe they fixed that... have extreme internet from TWC (30 down 5 up) so wouldnt think that would be the problem.

What was your setup? I heard you pretty much had to get a wired connection for the One, but hoping you had a good experience with both things on wifi.

Yea, I have a wired connection to my xbone. i will run it off wifi tonight. (we recently got the speed upgrade from TWC so it might help too. 250/50 or whatever it is)

I'm running 10 on a i7 processor with a Gtx 760, but im not sure how much those matter.

Most people use WiFi, you can go to YouTube and watch reviews.

That's a weird feature to base a purchasing decision on though

So is this thing ever gonna replace the time warner dvr box? I just don't game enough to justify buying one, but if I could save $10-15 a month on set top box charges I'd buy one today.

be aware of the known issues, none of these effect me except a couple of the minor ones, but they probably impact a lot of people:

Quote :
"Read the 'Known Issues' section.

Certain games and apps will not work/load in the NXOE Preview. Some are big name popular games (Forza and Destiny TTK are on this list). This is going to upset some people, and they'll likely want to exit the NXOE Preview to resolve that issue. If you do that, your console will be FACTORY RESET - meaning all games/apps on your hard drive, accounts, files, etc will be wiped from the internal HD.
It's a beta program - things will go wrong."


Quote :
"These are the current known issues for the first wave of the New Xbox One Experience, which will be rolling out at a later date.
Games and Apps: The following are known issues with specific titles on the initial New Xbox One Experience updates.
Games Failing to Launch: The following games may fail to launch:

Game Compilation Discs (ex. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Saints Row IV).
Forza 6: You may encounter graphical errors (screen turns a blue or purple hue) when participating in races
Assassin’s Creed Unity: Installing Assassin’s Creed Unity DLC while the game is open will cause it to crash when the DLC finishes downloading.

General System Issues
System Update Errors: If you encounter an update error screen while downloading a system update and the console freezes, please wait 3 minutes before rebooting the console to ensure crash data is captured. Crash data is submitted automatically; no action required on your part.
Party Chat: When entering connected standby with a party chat session open, after resuming from connected standby party chat may no longer function. Workaround: Hard reset the console.
Xbox Button: While holding down a button on the controller or plugging in a racing wheel and pressing the Xbox button, the power menu may pop up after which the Xbox button will fail to recognize input. Workaround: Hard reset the console.
Automatic Downloads: Content purchased from Xbox.com will not automatically download to the Xbox One console. This feature is planned to come later.
Browser: You will be unable to use voice commands in the browser; using voice commands in the browser will likely cause the console to hang and require a hard reset to resolve the issue.
My games & apps: After downloading a system update My games & apps may fail to populate. Workaround: Hard reset the console.
Games stuck in the queue: You may find games are unexpectedly remaining in the download queue.
Notifications: Friends do not receive game toast notifications.
Live TV: The following issues affect the Live TV experience:
Cable/Satellite set top box compatibility is not yet at parity with the current Xbox One experience. Please continue to report video playback and audio issues using the Report a problem app to help us improve the experience. HDMI troubleshooting steps:
Go Home and press the menu button on the OneGuide app to quit, then restart it.
Unplug and re-plug the HDMI-in cable from the Xbox, ensuring it’s seated securely in the port.
With the Xbox One turned on, pull the power cord on the cable/satellite box, wait a few seconds, and plug it back in.
Press and hold the power button on the front of the Xbox One to perform a hard reboot of the console.
Dolby Digital surround sound will not work for Live TV.
App channels cannot be set as a Favorite.
The “Xbox Snap TV” voice command does not work. You can snap TV via voice command by saying “Xbox Snap OneGuide” or choosing OneGuide from the Snap Center.
The OneGuide pin doesn’t function. You can launch OneGuide using the app, voice commands, or from the OneGuide twist.
You may experience a stuck frame streaming TV to the Xbox App. You can enter OneGuide or resize your window to restore video playback.
The media transport controls do not work when streaming TV to SmartGlass and Xbox app clients.
When resuming from connected standby the Xbox One media remote may fail to send commands; a hard reset resolves this.
Community Twist
Currently this area is not fully populated with content and is missing large sections of the user experience. Activity feed content also may not be actionable and items on the trending items second level screen have not been fully tuned. As Preview moves forward content and features in this area will light up.
Xbox App/Smartglass
SmartGlass and Xbox App Live TV/OneGuide: You may experience issues connecting to Live TV or OneGuide when connecting to the console with SmartGlass. Workaround: Set your SmartGlass connection to auto connect, quit the app, and restart. If the issue persists, hard reset the console.
Basic SmartGlass functionality is now available including gamepad navigation, touch navigation, remote text entry, media playback control, and companions for apps and games. Other features such as two-finger touch panning, media companions, and power on/off will not function in this build.
Accessories
Xbox One Media Remote:
When resuming from connected standby the Xbox One media remote may fail to send commands; a hard reset resolves this.
The buttons for media playback will not work (rewind, play, pause, fast forward, skip back, stop, skip forward). The directional and center “select” button will function as normal.
USB TV Tuner: If you have a USB TV Tuner plugged into your Threshold Xbox One console, Windows and Windows Phone SmartGlass devices will crash when attempting to connect to the console. To avoid this, you can switch to the Xbox App on Windows 10 or reset your TV settings and avoid setting up the USB TV Tuner.
Third Party Steering Wheels: Using a third party steering wheel will work in games, however, it may cause instability to the console after attempting to use the Xbox button to return to the dashboard. Workaround: Hard reset the console."

The Xbone UI is an absolute piece of dog shit. They should just go back to the Xbox 360 interface. Even the original "blades" system in 2005 was better than this garbage, but that's when it was designed for users to navigate, not to suffocate users with endless advertisements.

Just the act of sending a message to a recent player... on the 360 it takes around 5 seconds and 5 clicks. The Xbone it takes 20 seconds and 10 clicks. So much innovation though right!!!

Whatever the current UI is on the Xbone.

The 360's change to a bunch of block advertisements sucked but I could at least navigate it efficiently.

i got the message last night for it and was excited to download it tonight, but i am going to have to pass if the taken king doesnt work.

i actually like the snap features cause you get an uninterrupted view of the game, but it just takes too damn long to load when you snap. much better than the 360 popup. if they could make that process faster i would be all over it.

So the last few days I have been having a few issues with the new dashboard.

Using the XBox button to return to the dashboard fails to work about once a day now making it impossible to go from game or tv to the dash. Only way to fix is to restart Xbox.

Have also been dropped from Destiny a few times. Not sure if dashboard is to blame or not but a noticeable uptick in drops since the install.

Overall seems acceptable for a beta as long as they fix these issues by rollout.

I've had the same issues (except for Destiny, because that game is boring) and have reported them although the preview app to report issues crashes more than anything else for me.

It's frequent, but manageable and not enough to reset my Xbox. If having to power cycle your xbox occasionally will be a problem for you I do not recommend installing the NXOE update.

[Edited on October 13, 2015 at 11:34 AM. Reason : it's strange that these issues only started in the last couple days, was stable before that]
