    It doesnt support pull yet but I have its rumoured to be coming, at least something is in there I guess.
    Push isnt really an issue and so far I have got mkv's and all sorts going to it without issue (just install 2 codecs to get mkv going) all nicely snapped on the right side. Its brilliant having The Walking Dead S4 while playing Dead Rising 3

    Also the XB1 feedback triggers really rock when playing Forza, I find the feedback very helpful and tbh I think all controllers need this if they are used for racing (wheels already do)

    Thanks for the info.

    You mentioned installing codecs, you're using a PC to push?

    Yeah I wanted to test using the native app's inside windows (8.1) but I didnt have a codec to unwrap mkv automatically for wmp. A lot of files played without the mkv issue or any codecs.
    You can use a few other open source ones and I *think* I should be able to push from android but not tested yet. Also I am aware of a few apps for mac/ios that can too but likewise I have not tested them yet.

    Streaming videos to an Xbox One on Android works fine. The video below shows the forthcoming AllCast app in action.

    Any of the few unlucky enough to have a DOA Xbox One will get a free game as well as priority replacement: Xbox One owners with hardware issues get complimentary game | Polygon
    I wonder if sony will match with all the BLOD stuff.

    For those curious about Blu-ray playback quality blu-ray.com has done a review: Blu-ray on Xbox One: An Introduction.

    The Xbox One's Blu-ray player certainly isn't one for the home theater enthusiast. Picture is solid and sound is excellent, but it lacks precise tuning adjustments. Such audiences will want a dedicated player in their rack. However, the Xbox One just may be the perfect family room Blu-ray playback device for both the casual viewer or family or even the enthusiast who wants a capable second player outside of the home theater. Voice commands are a dream and they work very well at a high percentage rate of accuracy. The failure to navigate disc menus with verbal commands or hand gestures is disappointing, and that the Kinect more often than not fails to recognize commands during loud playback can be an annoyance. These issues, however, are much less likely to plague the casual living room experience, which seems to be Microsoft's target, anyway. Considering the smooth experience, fast access, the absence of glaring glitches, the terrific and intuitive SmartGlass remote app, the awesome Kinect interface, and all the other things the system does well right out of the box, the Xbox One is the clear winner over the PS4 in terms of overall entertainment integration and, more specific to this site and its audience, Blu-ray playback. There's no doubt the PS4 will eventually play catchup and at least rival the Xbox One, but Microsoft has certainly taken the lead and embraced the Blu-ray experience, once its rival, with open arms and an advanced, enjoyable, and accurate interactivity that's nothing short of a terrific experience all round. Oh, and it also plays some great video games. The Xbox One comes very highly recommended.

    Not yet, I have heard all sorts of cursing and stuff on there though, the game I was in was R18 though, surely people can cope.

    Got to be honest, I support this move...

    It's one thing to swear while you're having a bit of banter with mates (which I understand is allowed as long as it's party chat) but it is so irritating when you get some 12 year old shouting obscenities down their microphone in a constantly high pitched squeal. Ban the lot I say!

    Couldn't agree more. Thats why before I start a game, I start a party, then I dont deal with those idiots (though I play BF, not so prevalent there)

    For excessive swearing yeah, but gamers occasionally have...expletive filled moments in games. Plus a ban for saying the word plonker in a video is hardly proportionate...

    Just a few questions for the one owners.

    Do xbox 360 mic pucks work on the one controller (and chatpad?)

    Are the controller charging slots the same as the 360 ones?

    Are the batteries interchangable between 360 and one controllers?

    I havent been too successful looking on my phone.

    No new headsets are way better though with lit mute button on controller side and you can use smartglass for chat, no (its micro USB now), yes if you use aa ones, the charge and play is better but not interchangeable.
