    ...unless you are have it in the "on" position and you lose internet for a significant amount of time. You couldn't then switch it to "off."
    Actually, fun solution: Allow for phones to be read as removable media. Allow the user to store a state change on a removable device, plug into the console, and update the on/off switches that way. If my Internet went out, I could get on my Lumia 920, sign in to the Games hub and change the on/off states. The phone could then receive a small file that the Xbox One could read, you plug it into the console, go into the console settings, choose something like "manually update game preferences," and it would check the phone for the file, and update as necessary.

    Actually, now that I think about it, with a Windows Phone (or any smartphone), it could be simpler than that. If they allow you to connect to SmartGlass with WiFi direct, you could power up SmartGlass, do the preference changes over cellular Internet, then push them via WiFi direct and SmartGlass.
