    Got nothing to say about Xbox but I've had CFLs and now LEDs.

    LEDs instantly go to the brightness and color temperature you want.

    CFLs in cooler weather takes a couple of minutes to reach max brightness.

    CFLs require special disposal.

    Um ok. CFLs still work well if you don't mind the light they put out.

    I think a mod should change the title of this thread to "Thoughts on Xbox One & Tivo and CFL vs LED" :)

    Has anyone tried the Xbox 360 Media Remote to see if it functions with the Xbox One? Or any non-Harmony programable remote that can control an Xbox? I'm curious to know if it works.

    I haven't tried an Xbox 360 remote, but I'll give it a shot today if I can find mine. I doubt it works, and honestly I hope it doesn't. Microsoft has to assume that a large number of Xbox One owners will still have a 360 sitting in their stack. Harmony does have a code set for the XBOne, I've already programmed my remote to operate it.

    Having problems with my Roamio Plus and Xbox One. It is taking some time to go between channels... seems like a handshake issue but I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Had no problems before the Xbox One. Any ideas?

    Set the Roamio to only output one resolution. (1080p) That will cause the TiVo to scale all channels internally and avoid the handshake issues.

    So has anyone been able to set the XBOne to use remote codes 1 through 9 instead of remote code 0 which affects all TiVos?

    After hooking up my Tivo HD through the X1, I noticed immediate degradation in the video quality. The image is darker, there's banding in any gradients, and there's possibly some black crush.
    I'm seeing issues here on my Tivo HD. Whenever I do a trickplay feature (skip back, 30 sec skip forward, fast forward, or rewind), the screen either freezes or goes black. I lose all Tivo audio as well. After I stop the trickplay and return to normal playback, it can take up to 10+ seconds for the video and audio to return. This makes it pretty useless to me. When this happens, just skipping back once isn't necessarily enough time for it to fix itself, so I skip back twice, and then I wonder why I would have this hooked up like this.

    What video output option are people using? I originally was on Native, but then switched to 1080i after I started getting the a/v dropouts.

    The IR adjustment will fix your issue. I wasnt using the xbox to control the tivo either when i was having the freezing issues. It was freezing when i would rewind or fast forward using the tivo remote through the xbox pass through.

    If you adjust the IR speed to fast it will fix the freezing and black screen issues when using the tivo remote through the xbox. At least it worked for me on my Tivo HD...

    Yuck. What an ugly solution! Now I'm not so excited for this anymore. I guess that's why they deemed this "beta".

    The beta setting works fine with my Roamio basic. Although my problem is that the remote code the XBOne uses is zero, so it will also control my Premiere and Roamio Pro in the same room. I need to be able to choose remote codes 1 through 9 so I can individually control my Roamio Basic.

    I was having a problem with my Roamio basic that, after having been de-selected on my AVR for several hours, it would be "out of sync" with HDMI, not displaying video or playing sound. Toggling it into and out of standby would give me video, but I had to do a warm restart to get sound back. With its output run through my splitter, so that I could have it connected to the AVR and Xbox One at the same time, that doesn't seem to be happening. I'm not using the console for TV watching but I may have gotten some benefit for setting up for it :).

    EDIT: Should have knocked wood :(. No sooner do I post this that Roamio does this again, although this time I got sound back by just toggling standby without having to restart.

    I haven't had any of the interface issues some people are describing ITT.

    The only voice commands I use (w/r/t TV) are channel changing to a specific channel (I love that I just say ESPN and it goes to ESPN. Having to know channel numbers is absolutely the dumbest thing about the TiVo and it infuriates me that TiVo hasn't taken the lead in banishing this outdated paradigm of TV) and pause/resume.

    I love being able to get up to use the bathroom, and on my way out of the room, say "TiVo Pause" or if I can't find the remote, I can pause while I look for it, or whatever. And then resuming on the way back in. I love that.

    The rest of the features (one guide, other commands, TV control, etc) are not very good.

    guys, how is the channel guide overlay from the X1 working for you? I assume it doesn't interfere with the Tivo's own menus/guides?

    It works great. It doesn't interfere with TiVo if you don't want it to. If you want to 100% use the TiVo menus/interface, once you have the TV app running, you can completely ignore the rest of the Xbox One interface and just use your remote like normal.

    awesome. so you just put in your cable provider and location, and it sets it up so it knows the channels?

    Yup, exactly. And then you tell it what kind of cable box, TV, and AV receiver you have and it will setup the IR codes for those as well.
