Ah okay. I'll look for that sign in the upper left corner then next time I boot up. Thanks for the tip. Sometimes while I am on the home page it will say connect to Xbox Live, but that is at the bottom of the page and I have to scroll down to notice it. I notice this happens to me more so at times if I have my power settings saved to "Instant On" as opposed to "Power Saver" mode.

How can I tell if I have downloaded the X enhanced games patches? I put the disc in for dishonored 2 and it didn't ask me to download anything, but when I put in the disc for fallout 4 it is having me download the huge patch for it.
So my question is how would I know or tell that I already have the 4k updates?

On my one s, I found the spot to enable or disable 4k patches. But on the X, that option isn't even there. So I'm assuming it's automatically enabled for 4k patches.

Oh you got the one x then you its enabled already, if you hit like the menu and select button at the same time I think it will tell you if its One X enchanced already

Also, i looked it up and it says that on x enhanced games, when starting them for the first time on the X, if you previously didn't download 4k patch, it will have u do it then.
So I'm going thru all 15 of the x enhanced games I have downloaded, and some, like Madden 18, dishonored 2, la noire, and the hunter call of the wild didn't have me download anything extra. But other ones are.
And even tho dishonored 2 didn't have me download anything, I can totally tell it's enhanced. Way better lighting effects, and the enemies faces and arms are way more detailed, even on the same 1080p tv I have been using. It crazy how more sweet just D2 looks and plays better.
We going to hook the 4k tv up tomorrow, just didn't feel like doing it tonight

One more patch and I think I will finally be able to play this hopefully without much of the aggravation I've seen in the past forum posts:

I never got a code. I am a xbox insider and I signed up for the beta, for the last one they had, and I got a message from xbox today reminding me of a new beta run starting. But I never got a code

Still kinda cheesed that the One X does not have 4k pass through. Seems like a big miss. Also why the hell dont we have UDH movies to by or rent on live? Argh.

Can't wait to try Dead of thieves though.

I can rent UHD movies, there's 196 of them

You can buy them too. Go to any movie, press right twice to select the resolution drop down, and select UHD. Most newer movies have the option to rent or buy UHD.

I wonder if you could switch your profile to the US and download UHD movies. I switched my profile over to Japanese once to download Zoo Tycoon when it was on their GwG .

Wow, I didn't know this. Seems like that was trivial for the X1S to have...why would they remove it?

I don't think X1S ever had it as, to my knowledge, no version of X1 has ever supported 4k pass through.

Super Lucky's Tale was a pretty good platformer. It was very basic, but it reminded me a lot of a platformer from the N64 era. I had a blast getting all 1000 achievements for it.

that's pretty decent, i have rise of the tomb raider and oxenfree but will probably give several of those a look especially sea of thieves

I have Oxenfree, RottR and SLT. I kind of wish that these games didn't have a bunch of DLC which increases their total available achievements to ~2000 though. Kind of sucks getting everything in the game and then seeing that 50% completion next to the game on your achievement list.

Definitely hyped for SoT too. Looks like a bunch of fun and all my friends are also getting it via gamepass, so there shouldn't be an issue getting a decent sized crew together.

I read something awhile back saying it would, but I guess my fault for not following it up. Oh well I suppose. Would have been nice to have my Pro hooked up through the X1X. Seems like kinda of a odd move considering what MS wants to do and that the X1X is a "4k" console.

There's a dude on youtube (who is never negative about anything so I don't watch him) and he sends his PS4 feed through his X1S to get some free upscaling. After seeing that I poked around and many people are doing the same.

Upscaling possibly, since the X1's upscaler is better than the PS4s, but I would surprised if it jumps from 1080p to native 4k.

Well, obviously not, that's not what upscaling does. Native 4K output means it's literally outputting in 4K, not taking 1080p output and scaling up. Remember kids, upscaling is fake news. Checkerboard rendering is ALSO fake news!

Kind of what I was saying, that upscaling a 1080p signal doesn't mean its going to end up as 4k.

Is anyone getting the new Duke? I want it, but I know I won't use it much. I pulled out my old duke to play some Halo 2 campaign and it is awkward. Especially when we have bumpers on the 360 and One.
