OldBoy asking the same question a dozen or so times about Ensalved makes me hope no one mentions it here if/when it becomes backwards compatible.

Nice to know. Maybe the store was having issues with the Live problems.

I spend a few seconds each morning jumping through the Microsoft Rewards hoops on Bing and earn enough points to renew my Game Pass every three months. Haven't paid for it yet and it gives me something to do while I'm waiting for the coffee-maker to finish brewing.

My X1 seems to have uninstalled a ton of my games, and with no discernible pattern. Some I had played very recently, some never. I assume I can re-download them with my progress saved, but it’s weird.

They are still installed, just not indexed for whatever reason.

Restart your Xbox and they should be shown correctly.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

so the XBOX One has a power box that it's plugged into. it shows a orange or white little light.

lately it has always been white and making a very faint, but noticeable when i sleep humming noise. i know i have auto downloads set up for games and updates, but it doesn't update all the time and this thing seems to hum all the time and usually stays white.

i unplugged everything for a bit. replugged and the hum went away and orange. turned XBOX on again and now hum and white light back. any setting i am missing that might be keeping that power box on?

thanks.

According this this thread, the brick will keep the white light on if the XB1 is set to "instant on."
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...1a27cd2?auth=1

You can disable instant on, but if you have a Kinect, it won't wake from voice, along with a few other things:
https://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-...ut-power-modes

As for the noise, I didn't really notice any with mine. I had to get up really close to hear anything. It does have a fan in it, so if your power supply gets very dirty inside due to dust buildup, the fan may ramp up to keep cooling it, making it louder. Here's a guide on how to clean it, although I'd suggest being very careful with a power supply, as the capacitors in it could hold a charge for a good while after being unplugged.

If anyone's Game Pass has expired (like mine just did), you can renew for 2 months for $2.

Also, thanks to mugwump for the MS Rewards reminder. I had about 5k points in my account, so started doing the search thing the last few days and got up enough to redeem another month of GP.

During today's Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced a stealth release of Final Fantasy IX, available now on Xbox One. In addition, a release date for Final Fantasy VII was also announced, which will be coming next month on March 26th. Remakes of Final Fantasy X/X-2 and XII were already announced for April releases, on the 16th and 30th respectively. Those releases will round out the announced ports of these classic Final Fantasy titles.

You can grab IX now for $20.99 on the Xbox Store or Windows 10 as a Play Anywhere title.

Is it turning your TV on as well? Is the Kinect lighting up?

This page has a few suggestions for fixing this, the first suggestion being cleaning the front of the XB1, since dirt can trigger the touch sensitive power "button" area on the front.

Just a heads up: they shorted me by 5 days when I did this today (got 56 instead of 61). Customer support hasn’t figured out why yet, but confirmed there is a problem.

Similarly, my xbox (no kinect) turns on/off my tv when I power up/down and it's annoying. I just want to power off and watch tv but it kills the tv. Is there a setting I'm missing?

They could not fix the 5 days, so they just added another month.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

Any recommendations on a decent wired headset? I'm looking for one for myself. I've used the basic chat mic when I play with a buddy, but I'm getting sick of that. I figure I would invest in a decent headset. I do not want wireless. Wired only. I was look at some of the Plantronics Rig ones with the Dolby Atmos stuff, but then I realized, there are very few games that support it. I also will probably not be using this to do anything other than gaming, so another reason why the Atmos stuff seems overkill, since I won't be watching movies or Netflix. I'm looking to spend about $100, but willing to go up to $150ish if there is something worthwhile. Also prefer to buy at BB due to RZ credits I have. Thanks.

I got a SteelSeries Arctis 3 Console for my son for Christmas and he really likes it. I went with their Warehouse deals for a like new at $45.

I've seen someone mention buying these headphones:

and using this mic:

x2 for SteelSeries. Very comfortable and sound great. I use an Arctis 7 wireless. I think there's a wired version of the 7, too.

No idea. LG OLED tv. XboxOneS.

Tv powers on and off when I turn on and off the Xbox. It doesn't do it with any other console hooked up (PS4, Wii, WiiU, Gamecube, NES, SNES & N64). That's why I think it's a setting on the xbox somewhere that I'm missing.
