I'm sure it is there somewhere in the pages I have read on this thread but I can't see it so my question is. How can I get Xbox One to see and view the content of WB My Book Live.?I could do it so easily on my PS3 that recently died and I figure this new machine could do the same but I might be sadly mistaken.

Xbox one can't access external drives yet. It's coming in an update.

I bought Horizons 2 but have yet to play it, as Shadows of Mordor for PC came out the day before and I can't stop playing it. 

I have about 5 games for the X1 but not one of them has been good enough to take me away from whatever I am playing on the ps4 or PC.  Unfortunate really.

Well I played Horizon 2 tonight. Sadly whilst most of my impressions are good, the game seems beyond the hardware with multiple times FPS rates dropped to shuddering and jerkiness. Ruins the enjoyment somewhat.

That's news. Horizon 2 is solid 30fps throughput the entire game.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I've not seen any FPS drops in FH2 either.

After reading the other responses, you sure you dont have anything installed that could be causing the slow down ? Given the Xbox a full restart lately ? (not just "powered" off.)

Not really sure what you could install, that could interfere like that, one would hope that processes are in place to prevent it. 

Xbox gets shut down when not in use and it gets so little use, it's not likely related to that. 

The worst of it happens during cut scenes and right before a race where they do a preview of the area before racing begins.

Well, all those fun features they give you for in game experiences, take up CPU/RAM somewhere along the line ;)
How do you shut down tho ? Just a shutdown form the home screen or a full power off ? I found you have to hold in the power button on the console for approx 10s to do a proper power off and restart.

How are folks finding the voice commands, "Xbox On" works about one in every 1000 attempts for me. Once the machine is running the commands are about 60% successful

I usually do it from the menu that pops up when you hold the xbox button. 

I don't use any of those other functions, I game for xbox exclusive titles on it, everything else is done better on other devices.

I'll try a hard shutdown, maybe my xbox is faulty.

This is something I'd have to say I've been pretty impressed with. I'd say hit rate on voice commands is <90%

Anna is FH2 is useful because pressing another button to activate GPS is dangerous at 250 Kmph,
