This video is not valid for Series X.

But seriously if Windows Core OS leads to mpv in Xbox Series X(with the ability to use shaders) I wont mind. It would be the ultimate media box.

Don't you have the pip on your tv?
Does PIP actually work for you? I think it depends on your region. From my understanding, Samsung TVs (for example) in the US can only show content PIP from a sub-HD source, making it basically worthless, as nothing I have is sub-HD these days. I looked and tried extensively when I got my new (at the time) 75" TV, as I wanted to game while having sports or something in the corner.

If anyone knows how to get it work properly, I am all ears.

It was time.

I will admit that I miss using Kinect for voice controls (mainly recording clips) but it's already dead so why would it be supported on XSX? My surround receiver is ancient so I currently use optical to connect but I'll either upgrade or get an adapter. Never had real use for HDMI in from the jump since we cut the cable waaaay back.

OK that is some bullshit... "the Bluetooth signal isn't strong enough to meet Microsoft's specifications for latency"? Funny how PS4 and Switch don't seem to have this issue. Also the Series X has the most cutting edge console gaming technology we've ever seen but Microsoft still can't include a rechargeable battery in their controllers?

Popeyes chicken
The one feature I can say I enjoyed and wish it would come back was the split screen. Watch twitch and play a game helped my adhd lol.

The only feature that they're taking away that I actually use right now is the HDMI In port for my cable box.

Considering it takes just as much time to use the one guide to get to my cable box as it does to just switch to HDMI 2 with my remote, I dont think it's that big of a deal.

Isn't optical out going the way of the Dodo because it doesn't support the new shiny?

Gone
HDMI-in -- who cares?
IR blaster-- get one of those old school logitech universal remote, HDMI does all this now
SPDIF optical audio--sad if this was your connection of choice (I use optical audio from the TV to the receiver)


Probably gone?
OneGuide? What's that?

Possibly gone?
Kinect support? No more just dance 😭

No need to worry too much, most aren't about gaming at all (I mean, the infrared thing, what a waste of time, Kinect, etc. Aren't worth a dine for most people).

Dance Central was the bomb, like 10 years ago, tho.

Those might be lost, but what features are they gaining?

Maybe we should wait to find out.

I don’t wanna sound like a dick but If you are still using optical audio in 2020 you are doing it wrong. It doesn’t even support the lossless surround sound formats that have been on the market for OVER 10 years.

Someone mentioned Rocksmith. That game was unplayable to me even with optical. I’m talking about the current gen version specifically.

On PS3 the game was ok if you used the analog output port.
