Been wanting to buy one for my impending 4K conversion of my HT room. Already have an Xbox One but never really used it for movie viewing.
How is the image quality compared to the dedicated 4K players?

i had the Oppo203, n the Xbox One S...
eventually sold the oppo203 as in the 4K resolution dept, its all the same to me.
cost of the xbox one s is so much more cheaper than the oppo.
the tv is important. 4K players jus play 4K.
unless there is some sort of video enhancement chip in the player, then u will see "slight" difference.
if u go through the settings of video output in the xbox one s, u can play with many unheard of settings.
i also blur blur... i jus leave it to auto settings.
hehehe!!!

4K players aren’t always the same. They can implement different ways of tone mapping because not all displays can show 2000 nits, 4000 nits or 8000 nits.

Oppo 203 should be a better player but also cost 4 to 5 times more than Xbox S. Bought my Xbox for $299 so no brainer for me as I rarely watch 4k disc as I have 4k ATV and Netflix.

Qisahn selling the Xbox One S for $250->offer price listed is $300 and need to apply Qoo10 $50 coupon (subject to $300 min nett spend) to arrive at $250 price. Offer till end today (11 Oct) as part of the 10.10 Sale.
https://www.qoo10.sg/item/MICROSOFT-MAKE-250-ONLY-NEVER-BEFORE-PRICE-APPLY-50-COUPON-HERE-XBOX-ONE/630854495

Alternatively they are also selling the XBox One X for $535->offer price listed is $585 and as abv need to apply Qoo10 $50 coupon to arrive at final price of $535. It comes bundled with some games but there is an option to have the game removed (ie just the console itself) for a further $40 off making it $495 nett.
https://www.qoo10.sg/item/MICROSOFT-MAKE-535-APPLY-50-COUPON-XBOX-ONE-X-CONSOLE-FORZA-BUNDLE-TOMB/630854811

My apologies if this is not the appropriate thread to post this but thot the price is one of the lowest for the XBox One S/X hence a good "lobang" to share with bros here.

Ordered the Xbox One S (1TB) yesterday from Qoo10.  Its a really good deal.  Hopefully the Dolby Vision firmware update will be released before the end of the year.

Buy this "NYKO" brand remote for your xbox one s/x!!
i bought it from either Lazada or Qoo10, i can't remember already!!
$10 or $15?
it can switch off your xbox one s/x instantly ( got dedicated button for power! ) n it can control my onkyo avr volume too!!


Is this an IR Remote?  Does this require the Kinect sensor?  Wondering if I can use other IR remotes like Logitech Harmony to control the XBox.

Thanks Cash and Rayleh.  Will use my Harmony 600 as the remote then.

Just need to get the vertical stand-cum-charging dock to complete the setup.

Hi,

I have a question about the audio settings. Before the s/w update, it output to my receiver which I can set to Dolby Atmos + Neural. After the update, I noticed that only Dolby Atmos and stereo options are displayed and it does not output to my atmos speakers anymore. I checked the settings on my xbox audio out is already set to Atmos.

Also, with the new update, it is supposed to do HDR10 and Dolby vision to my LG C7 oled but it is not doing so. Again the settings has been adjusted based on recommended and TV also set accordingly. Is there any steps that I might have missed?

Thank you

Mike

For me, if I use the Xbox to watch Netflix or Youtube, AVR always show DV and Atmos even though the source is not.

Kaoz.. my luck.. my Xbox One X couldn't power up after 2 days of usage. Apparently it is a known issue with the power supply. Gonna send it back to Qisahn for an exchange.

Yes. This is indeed true and I was told that the fault lies with Netflix app, NOT the Xbox.

I do not think it has anything to do with the Netflix app on xbox. My Marantz AVR shows Atmos regardless of the app I am using on the xbox1x and also if I am not using any app at all. I read somewhere that 1) this is how Microsoft has implemented Atmos on xbox and 2) it is not a "fault" and that the xbox is outputting the appropriate signal from the source.

That's right. If the source supports Atmos, the audio will be more immersive compare to non Atmos source. However, my Denon still displays Atmos.

Yes...agreed too. Either way, Microsoft or Netflix have to fix this annoying problem. I'm fine with Dolby Atmos being used as the primary output (assume we activate the Dolby Atmos for HT option under Audio when we do the bitstream)...but either one of them have to fix the HDR "bug" in the Netflix app...SDR content converted to HDR by brute force is really bad. I have no choice but to deactivate the HDR under the Video setting.

i don't really know how to play with "Kodi"....
sorry....
my "UBox 4" goes into the xbox one s hdmi input to output into the onkyo avr...
so its really the media center. the brains if u wanna call it that.
Hmmm... I tried plugging a HDMI from another BluRay player to a newly bought S at my colleague place... It keeps showing some kind of error... Could it be the what HDCP protection going on, or does the system needs a update on the firmware to be compatible to another device?

U have to be specific with the error pop up msg. For HDCP 2.2, it only indicate to user that the HDMI cable is not HDCP 2.2 certified if you tried to play a 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc.

The Blu-ray player where the hdmi cable u swapped to test out the Xbox S console, is it a normal Blu-ray player or a true 4K player? If it is the former, then the cable unlikely HDCP 2.2 certified.

Use a different HDMI cable preferably one that comes with the Xbox S console, 4K TV (bundled with HDMI cables) or players (even media player) that is able to playback 4K content.

Again, what TV you are using and make sure you connect to the right HDMI inputs in the TV that supports 4K HDR 60fps etc. All these are important details that you left out in your post. Get back to us with more info before we can advise.

Hi, I am thinking of getting a Xbox One X to use primarily as a UHD player with my Sony ZF9.

I read that it had many issues in the past and some seems to have been fixed by firmware updates. Would appreciate any advice if it currently has any issue with the support Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision on the Blu-ray App?

Thanks!
