One question for anybody who watches TV through the X1 :
Im getting could quality HD resolution when I watch TV on my xbox, but if I change back to regular TV, the resolution and aspect ratio is all jacked up, and I can't get it back to normal.
Has anyone had this problem?
FYI: I still have my cable box connected separately to my TV by component cables. I thought this would allow me to watch TV through X1 or CableTV
Is there a good way to have HD resolution through X1 and Cable at the same time?
You'll get used to only watching through the xbox. There's no real need to have it hooked up both ways. The only downside is before I had one port tuned for gaming and the other for watching tv. So now I have to change a setting more often but it's quick and easy. Your problem probably is each port on your tv has separate settings. Also check your cable box settings. You might have things set as if a hdmi cable was plugged in.
Oh Im loving the TV functionality. That was one of the big selling points for me.
But there are still a few things I want to be able to do with my cable box.
Unless Im missing something, there is no way for me to control my Comcast DVR through my Xbox. I can't control what to record, or access my recordings
Also, if i want to get anything On-Demand I will have to do that through the Cable as well
I love the TV through Xbox, but I would just as soon have my regular TV still fully functional as well
