My Games and Apps

  • After any cold boot or silent boot, if the console is put into Instant On, it has a chance of having no background downloads of Apps or Games working until waking the console from Instant On again.


  • We have fixed issues when Users may get randomly signed out from Xbox Live if they get a connectivity hiccup. This would also boot/kick users out of whatever game they’re playing with a message like “you must be online to play this game”.

  • We are aware that some users with Denon or Marantz receivers and the LG SJ9 soundbar are experiencing Audio issues.


  • Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.
  • Workaround: Add to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.

Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter an incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.


  • Work continues on the stability of the Wi-Fi connectivity.  If you see any issues please report the problems for investigation.
