It has nothing at all to do with paranoria. It has to do with the Govt. deliberately violating our right to privacy as set forth by the constitution by our founding fathers. Of which I would not be suprised if the current president has never even read.


You forgot that the NSA policy was started George dumb Bush

Umm... wasn't that established in the first post of the thread? It's right there on the video.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb posted this on a gaming forum earlier today:

I have DirecTV at home w my Xbox One and it's been working just great.

...and later:

I can confirm that Xbox One works very well with DirecTV. I have the HR34 and HR44 and it works great with both.

Any idea if it uses IP control or something like an IR blaster?

The Kinect camera acts like an IR blaster.

Thanks - IR is a deal killer because I only use RF.  C'est la vie!

SO the Kinect must point towards the receiver?

No, reports are that it works from anywhere.

It works so well because Kinect itself is the IR blaster. Microsoft has augmented the new Kinect sensor with an IR transmitter in order to see the environment even in pitch black conditions. The upshot of this is that the technology works by drenching the entire room in infra-red light. Forget little LEDs attached to wires you dangle in front of your set-top box; if that's an IR blaster, the Kinect solution is effectively the equivalent of going nuclear. Debug Kinect tools allow you to see what the IR sensor sees - complete blanket infra-red coverage of the whole room. It's hard to imagine a scenario where this form of IR blasting wouldn't work.


Although, it's not out yet, so no one has really tested it's limits.

I hooked up the XBox One to my HR34-700 last night.  It was able to get guide data, but no voice control of the channel changing.  If it had worked, it would be awesome.  Without it, I'll go back through my receiver.  It also won't HDMI sync on restart.  So, it isn't quite ready for primetime for controlling your TV.  But, if the feature set actually worked, it would be outstanding.

 

Hopefully someone will figure out how to get it working.

Just another ridiculous gimmicky feature that noone needs....all-in-one devices almost always mean half as well....I much prefer to keep my gaming consoles and my Directv separate...I should have my XBone hooked up tonight

Can it handle the dash key needed to tune to the subchannels used by the alternates and part time HD RSNs?

The point of this, is not convenience for the customer, what Microsoft wants is to always have the Xbox on, if this catches on, I can see where they can start showing commercials overlaid on the TV or game picture.

 

 

and for this to work 100%, "they" need to get the HDMI protocol working better among devices.  as they way stands right now, HDMI is a ver "flakey" protocol.

I am using it with my TiVo Premiere and Charter service and it is working great, channel changing and passthrough and all. Being able to "dock" your TV while you do other things is amazing. 

 

Control is via IR blasting from the kinect (the xbox console itself does have an IR blaster port if you connect a 3rd party external one) so make sure you have things where it's all visible.

as of right now, xbox one will not pass 3d signal though it.  My directv box greyed out the 3d channels and if you force the change the screen has the dialog that the tv is not 3D capable.

 

just a fyi

Thanks for the info. I notice that 3D BluRays aren't supported either. This is a guess on my part, but I bet that the IR blaster on Kinect is probably wreaking havoc on 3D glasses that also use IR.

The Xbox One is working well with my HR21. Only problem is trying to use voice commands for certain channels does not work reliably, if at all.

I have the genie and hooked up a genie mini to my xbox one.  Anyone else experiencing that when you try to fast fwd or rewind live tv or DVR you cannot see the progress?

We got one the other night.  My son is still setting it up.  We played around with the voice commands last night, that was cool and worked far better than I expected.  We'll get his 24-500 hooked up to it today and see what happens.  So far, it's pretty interesting.

The new Xbox definitely works with the 24-500.  We just got thru playing with it.  The voice commands have just one problem:  Too many commands to remember.  Yeah, there are suggested commands on the screen, but there are many other commands that aren't listed.  Kinda reminds me of using a DOS computer, all those commands to remember.  My son will get them memorized, but it looks like a long learning curve.  In short, so far, my heart is not filled with lust for one.  But I don't play games and, all things considered, it still is a game platform.
