    I have a 7.1 setup with side and rear surrounds. With only one set of surrounds I don't think it's an issue

    7.1 with two side and two rear surrounds as opposed to 7.1 with two surrounds and two front height speakers(instead of using them as rear surrounds)

    Has anyone found a way to turn the Xbox on with the standard Roamio remote when you hit the power button? If I could do that, I could pretty much not use my Harmony remote especially if MS adds a boot to TV mode in an upcoming update.

    Yes. I do that now. But I would rather do it from the remote most of the time. I assume there is no code in the TiVo remote database that can turn on an Xbox One?

    honestly I'm not sure. But I don't see the Xbox ever booting straight to TV, so it's a bit moot.

    I've read they will probably add an option to start up to an app in a later update this year. So you could pick the tv app.

    And even without this option, I would rather turn my xbox on with my TiVo remote.

    cool. if you need it, I hope it works for you. I haven't heard anything about that from MS, and I'm in the beta program. I think it's a bit odd since they'd want you to see the dash and the offerings. But then again I think on 360 there was an option to auto play a disc if it was in the drive.

    Yeah, it is not in the August update. So it will be this winter at the earliest.

    I had heard that somewhere too. Earlier in the SUmmer. It makes sense that it would be coming. I wouldn't think it should be that difficult to have the XBOne boot up and then start an app. Especially since you can tell it to start and app yourself. So having the XBOne go to a specific app after turning on shouldn't be a problem.

    MY 360s boot up into WMC so yeah it shouldn't be a problem to implement.

    Now if MS would just fix the borked surround audio. Then I might watch more Tv through the HDMI input of my main XBOne.

    I have the same problem! I had my HDMI going TiVo > Xbox One > A/V Receiver. But since the surround sound audio is messed up, I bought an HDMI splitter. Now I can select TiVo > A/V Receiver directly or I can switch to TiVo > Xbox One > A/V Receiver. Most of the time, I don't watch through the Xbox One.

    The issue is still there with 1409 which I got yesterday.

    It is only from the HDMI input and apps. And AFAIK only affects a 7.1 setup. Surround audio is erroneously sent to the rear surrounds from the apps and HDMI input. Although I did only check the HDMI input last night. I'll double check an app this weekend.

    ahhh. I don't have enough space for 7.1 even though my receiver can do it. So I guess it doesn't affect me.

    I got an update on my Xbox One last night. Changing channels was broken (using oneguide or voice) until I rebooted one more time. I'm hoping the update fixes the HDCP issues. So far I haven't seen the error but I haven't had time to test.

    Looking into this as well, if I could just get the Roamio remote to power the Xbox I'd be completely happy.

    I don't have a Harmony remote, the Harmony Ultimate is on my radar but concerned it will be lacking when replicating the TiVo buttons, like; Thumbs, Live TV, Info, Zoom etc. Is there a reason not to like the Harmony? Cumbersome TiVo functions? Battery life?
