    The only thing I've figured out how to fix the issue is to shut down the XBOX One completely (either by holding the "ON" button for 8-10 seconds or unplugging the unit from the power brick), waiting 30 seconds and then plugging it in again and starting it up. Doing that 'resets' something and allows the TV feed to come back on and control the 'on/off' ability of the TV and satellite box like normal.

    Hopefully this is just a software issue that Microsoft can work the kinks out of.

    The other way that you can 'prevent' this from happening appears to be taking the XBOX One out of standby mode so that when it powers down it turns completely off (which I don't to do) since that'll essentially be doing the same thing as unplugging it for 30 seconds...
    I have had this too...and I just unplug it and plug it back in.

    That's wrong.

    When I say "Xbox, On" it turns on my XBOX, my DirecTV receiver, and my TV. When I say "Xbox, turn off" it turns off my XBOX, my DirecTV receiver, and my TV.

    What I would try is doing a 'hard reboot' (press and hold the power button on the XBOX One for about 10 seconds) and see if it fixes itself. If that doesn't work, then go into the (I believe) settings for either TV or Kinect or power and make sure that the check boxes are marked for turning your TV on and off with the XBOX One...

    There is a setting in the 'TV and Oneguide' section of settings that has to be ticked for the Xbox turn off command to turn stuff other than your Xbox off. Mine was off by default :S

    Sorry if its been said already, I didn't read the whole thread, sneaky post while at work :)

    If I put FIFA into suspend mode to watch TV for a bit, every time I come back it gives me a connection error. That is a FIFA problem though and how EA handles the internet connection between the game and the console when it is not the app of focus.

    I've never once had an actual connection issue. (I'm hardwired also, not WiFi)

    Bit of a strange one but I have a problem in that quite often when I pause a game it will unpause itself a few seconds later. No idea what is causing it but its happened multiple times on both Ghosts & Ryse. I now just hit the home button instead but would still like to know what causes it!

    The network thing can be related to using the Resume Games Instantly (Beta) option, if I resume a game with that turned on after the Xbox has been in standby it always tells me it lost Xbox Live connection at first.

    For the power off equipment: you have to go into settings, under TV and then under Power settings to set if it turns off your equipment when you say Xbox turn off.

    It's the Kinect, when in game it responds to voice commands without you having to say "Xbox" first. Try disabling kinect voice commands for menu navigation from the in game options.

    Confirmed!

    I had this all the time with Dead Rising 3 until I disabled the Kinnect.

    Sometimes when I play Ghosts, and I join a game with a lot of people in it, it puts me in the playlist with 5 people, and whenever I exit and go to the same game, it puts me in the SAME playlist! Not sure if it is a Xbox issue or Infinity Ward's.

    I don't know if it is my hard drive, but I hear a high pitched noise coming from the system. Happened on my 360 as well (worse on the 360).

    After hearing how bf4 STILL has issues (even on other systems), I'm not giving them my money. Sticking with Ghosts for now.

    Not loud at all. You can hear it when you're around 3 feet away (about 1 metre for you metric folk), but farther than that away and it's indistinguishable from normal background noise (I live downtown... so it's never dead quiet). I normally sit around 8-12 feet away from the TV and Xbox so I never really hear it.

    as I am now on my 2nd unit (the first one was scratched and couldn't be turned off so I replaced it with new unit), I think hdd activity noise (that typical, clack, clack, clack type of sound) is louder than it was on the first unit I had. It reminds me of my fragmented hdd in old desktop pc. I can hear it when sitting 8-9feets ways from the console which is pretty annoying. The first unit I had was dead silent. Spke with MS representative and he said hdd really should be quite and inaudible from certain distance.
    Need to replace it again. :/

    Sometimes, after hard resetting the Xbox One due to a Battlefield 4 crash, it loses the router settings. When the dashboard comes up, it won't connect to Live. Then when I go to Network Settings, there is no longer a wireless connection set up. I have to find my router, connect to it, and enter the password all over again.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I can't find anything about it.

    Sounds like something they built into the system to clear out bad WiFi settings. I've never had the issue but I'm hardwired.

    So here's an interesting one...

    I live in Michigan - we just had a pretty bad ice storm that knocked our power out for almost 3 days (we were estimated to be out a week, so that was awesome).

    So, we have power back, but our internet is still down. Apparently, before the power went out Dead Rising 3 was downloading an update (it was at 83% when the power went out). I can't get it to not download and when I canceled the installation it removed the game from the 'My games and apps' page... I wanted to show it off to my brother-in-law, but now I can't... hmm.. frustrating... Don't know how to get it back..

    Can you tether it to your cell phone to finish the update? either creating a wifi hotspot or sharing the internet through a computer?
