Xbox Series X|S

Wie Microsoft nun offiziell mitteilt, läuft beim Launch der Xbox Series X|S nicht alles rund. So machen diverse Apps oder Videoeinstellungen Probleme.

Neben Apps, wie dem BBC iPlayer oder der EA Play App, gibt es die ersten Probleme beim Launch der neuen Xbox Series X und Xbox Series S, so die Webseite Windows Central. Auch Microsoft räumt diese Fehler bereits seit dem 4. November offiziell ein. Nur jetzt, wo der ein oder andere bereits seine Konsole bekommen hat, werden diese Probleme “sichtbarer”.

So gibt es u.a. noch Probleme mit der 4K / 120Hz Wiedergabe, Probleme mit Aufnahmen, bei eingeschalteten HDR oder Quick Resume. Bei dem Problem mit der EA Play App, bezieht sich das “nur” auf die App selbst. Euer Abo oder Zugriff auf die Spiele ist nicht gefährdet. Ihr könnt die Spiele hier natürlich weiterhin ohne Probleme aus dem Store herunterladen. In einem Forumbeitrag von Microsoft heißt zu diesen bekannten Problemen:

Bekannte Probleme mit der Xbox Series X|S
  • 4K/120hz
    • Known Issue: If you are using a 4K@120Hz TV that also supports VRR you might encounter no signal or corrupted image when the Xbox is configured for 4K120+VRR. This issue occurs with various TVs from LG, Samsung, or Vizio. 
    • Workaround: 
      • Update to the latest firmware on your TV
      • If the issue still persists, also consider trying the following:
        • Configure the console for 4K/60 with VRR by going to SettingGeneralTV & display options> Video Modes> check the box for Allow variable refresh rate.
        • Configure the console for 4k/120 with no VRR by going to SettingGeneralTV & display optionsVideo Modes> uncheck the box for Allow variable refresh rate. The resolution and refresh rates are found under “Display” in TV & Display options.
        • If you wish to experience 120hz and VRR, please configure for 1080p/120hz VRR or 1440p/120hz VRR by Setting> GeneralTV & display optionsVideo Modes> check the box for Allow variable refresh rate. The resolution and refresh rates are found under “Display” in TV & Display options.
      • If you are experiencing a corrupted image, here are your workarounds to reverting back to a safe video mode:
        • Restart your console and configure your video modes to one of the listed options above. 
        • If you’re still experiencing a corrupted image after restart, disable VRR on the TV. Please consult your TV manufactures on how to do this. 
        • If the issue still persist after steps 1 and 2, perform the video mode reset sequence to get back to a safe state and configure for one of the two options above. To do this, follow the steps on this page here under “Your screen is blank after you turn on the console > Reset your display settings”.
