By simply connecting one end of an HDMI cord to the Xbox 360 and the other end to the Xbox One’s HDMI input port, you can play 360 games from the Xbox One.

So, when you say “Xbox, Watch TV,” it will take you into the Xbox 360 console rather than a TV feed. This actually works for any HDMI-compliant device (PS4, Wii U)

You can also pin watch TV icon for easy access.

And ultimately why bother? Unless your TV is short of HDMI ports, you're inducing input lag for no benefit. You also need to use the original controller, plus need Kinect if you want to switch to the TV.
what's the point the majority of xbox 360 are now backward compatible

​"xbox, watch TV" requires Kinect
Wasn't there some sort of issue running the PS4 through the Xbox one?
Another pro tip.
Get kodi on xbox one by attaching a firestick to hdmi port.
And
Running out of space? Just use an external hdd.

Technically "Hey cortana, watch tv" can be done using a mic from a headset, so no need for Kinect.

But it's still ball ache
Nice energy efficiency

Just as easy and less electricity to just unplug the hdmi from the xone and put it into the 360

Seems pointless to do it the way you suggest

Yes, the Xbox flashed up an error message "inferior hardware detected" and blew up! (.... firework lit, standing back to watch the show! :))

?no
I have just checked kedgeree, the issue isn't whether you get a picture, the issue is the lag, making it far from desirable.
