genuine comment (not trolling ) but apart from if you had a really old TV without a digital tuner why would you use an Xbox one to watch TV? don't all TV's have freeview and most I presume with freeview HD. Why would someone switch their Xbox on (with the extra power consumption) just to watch TV?

This has pause rewind etc features, thats not normally included in built in freeview boxes, it also allows you to watch tv snapped to your game if you wish, I sometimes use it to watch the football whilst playing a game, I know it does not have all the functions of a freeview recorder but for the price it is good value imho

Well I've got one and think it's a great little thing.

Sure, you can get some stuff through normal TV but with this you can pause/rewind, etc., get HD if you couldn't already, snap TV in to games and get what's actually a really good TV guide/planner through the Xbox.

If you only use Freeview then it is a good purchase.

Not sure I'd want my Xbox's hard drive running all the time as they only have a finite life, can sort of understand the snap usefulness but my TV has picture in picture, after showing the family once the novelty of it wore off.

I personally don't think its a novelty i use snap all the time and not just for tv, all hard drives have a finite life, even if you bought a stand alone freeview recorder that has hard drive just like the xbox (maybe a different speed and brand but they all do same thing)

Can the FF RW be disabled to save your HDD?

friiza

Can the FF RW be disabled to save your HDD?



I believe so,I think you get the option to reserve 4GB of your console’s hard drive space for Live TV pausing, maybe someone using one can correct me if I'm wrong

I don't understand the need of this tuner. I can already watch the TV on my Xbox One because I connected an HDMI cable from the BT box to the console.
So this device will add more functions? A bit useless as I prefer watching TV without the Xbox One anyway...

I have one of these and it works very well, even more so if you have Kinect, you just tell it what channel to switch to, though this is a bit more cumbersome now, since you now have to "hey cortana" and then your command, whereas before it was just "xbox" then the command. 2 syllables vs 4 now.

The way we use it, we just walk in to the room, say "hey cortana - xbox on", the xbox/kinect also switches on the TV and AV amp automatically, and the channel is shown full screen on the TV. I am however gutted that they ditched the PVR features that were promised.

Me too, but that's the point, Microsoft didn't want you to turn off your Xbox....EVER....dun. dun.dunnnnn

I never thought I needed one of these but bought it anyway. Thanks op!

Think I'll buy one, quick question from those in the know, does this also work on a Windows PC?

Cheers and heat.

​Yeah, I did. I have Kodi running on a dedicated Windows 10 media PC. Would love it to have freeview built in and this would be a perfect, external option.... Oh well, never mind. Many thanks for the answer.

That's right. When this was introduced, the team announced Xbox DVR capabilities. Now they have officially scrapped this feature. Only things you can do is to use the guide to select channels, and snap your tv aside while playing a game.

Just a quick question, can this be used with a sky dish, as we do not have an aerial??

No, but you could buy THIS & it would work, depending on signal coverage in your area of course

For reference Microsoft have indefinitely delayed development of DVR functionality for the Digital Tuner and Xbox One.
I have one of these and it works well (useful if your Xbox One is attached to a monitor or projector) apart from the EPG which isn't taken from the Freeview signal but from an online source and some channels newer have the right information.

There is also more of a lag using this on your Xbox when compared to freeview builtin on a TV

Great, I didn't realise you could do that so have now turned back time to "Xbox..."

Here's a little tip for Windows 10 users. A week ago, I was going to stream some online tv to my PC. But, on a hunch, I used the Xbox app, turned on the Xbox One remotely, started streaming the Xbox to the app and then started up the TV app on the Xbox. It worked across my network And the quality was very good, too!

Very handy and saved me from using the internet for watching tv. Btw, you can do the same thing for streaming to your phone

I don't use the snap, cant see the benefit in using a less responsive guide. Just change source.

I tested my one on my little girls Xbox using an Arial from Poundland. Through just the TV there was just awful standard def. However once plugged into the Xbox One, she had the one guide and HD channels, with no picture degradation. Suffice to say she still has it in her room. So may just buy another one at this price and plug it into my sons.

Ace device can stream all your TV channels from the Xbox to other window Pcs/tablets etc with the Xbox app

Really don't think you have much to worry about having a few hours of recordings each day.

I would of greatly thought that you are playing a game on a television, then that television should have a tuner. What's the point❓

I wonder if one can obtain the pc drivers for this? theywere available for the old ps3 playtv

What's snap, like picture in picture?

A lot of modern tvs have usb with a recording function but never put it to the test

Don't need one, but at this price I still want one... ordered.

My TV has a Freeview tuner, but not a Freeview-HD tuner, so by using this I'm able to receive and watch HD broadcasts too. Also, running the aerial to the TV is a bit more difficult in my case, doing it this way means I only have to run a single HDMI cable to my TV (from my Xbox) for everything I want to use the TV for.

will this work for when I go back to NZ? Don't really need it here while I am in the UK, but ordered any way.
