Game Support / Vanguard ST ETA?
« on: 04:34 PM - 11/17/21 »
I know we have alternative ST's to use while we wait, but wondering what the ETA is for the Vanguard ST's?  Are we waiting on Quake and Halo to be done so you release all 3 ST's together or will Vanguard release before the others?

Since updating to beta firmware 20211012 I've noticed my XIM Apex and KBM connected to it would turn back on after several hours of being off.  For example, I shutdown around 9pm last night, then came back to check on the peripherals at 11:30pm and everything was still off.  But I came back this morning, and the peripherals are on (no power outages either).

This has happened for the last 3 days so far.

I'm not part of any Insider beta update programs with the Series x and I have energy saving mode on which means I fully shutdown my Series x.  I do a "full shutdown" through settings to power the system off.

I've had no issues with peripherals turning back on until I updated to this beta firmware.  There was one official Xbox update released recently, so it could be related to either that Xbox update or the Apex beta firmware. 

Any help is appreciated.

Without fail, when using my XIM Apex with the Series X controller, my Series X will crash and power off while playing Black Ops Cold War.  If I switch to an Xbox One controller, the system is stable and never crashes. 

I'm also part of the Xbox Insiders Delta program and am on the latest update.

Is anyone else still experiencing Series X crashes when playing BOCW?


I've been having an issue since upgrading to the latest official (not beta) firmware release 20200307.  I currently have my Xbox One X set to Energy Saving mode.  This means my Xbox fully shuts down when I'm finished playing (versus a "sleep mode").  When I shut down, my Xim Apex and peripherals all shut off.  Approximately 3-5 mins after shutting down (without doing anything or turning the Xbox back on), the Xim Apex powers back up and it turns on my KB and Mouse.  I then need to unplug it from the system to turn it off.

I never had this issue with previous firmware versions...only 20200307.  Can someone please look into this?

If you need more details, lemme know.


I upgraded to the latest official firmware (I believe its 20200307).

After upgrading to this firmware I noticed my mouse and keyboard do not power off after I shut down my Xbox One X anymore.  I have my system fully shut down (energy saving mode) everytime I shut down.  My peripherals used to shut down with no issues.

Since upgrading to this latest firmware, I notice my peripherals no longer shut off after I shut down my Xbox One X.

Any suggestions?

I'm having a lot of connectivity issues with the app and my Apex.  I have to constantly retry to connect to get it to talk to my Apex.

I noticed that under my Bluetooth devices, Apex is not there (like XIM4 was previously).  Is this intentional?

XIM APEX Discussions / XIM Apex - Impressions Thread
« on: 10:31 PM - 03/01/18 »
Seeing as a lot of people on here will be getting their XIM Apex tomorrow, please post your impressions of your XIM Apex here.  I'm specifically interested in your comparison between XIM4 and Apex.

Launch issues aside, in 2-3 weeks this will be ancient history and everyone will be celebrating this new device.

I won't be getting my Apex until Monday.....I'll post my impressions then...

General Discussion / USB On/Off Switch
« on: 04:48 PM - 02/01/18 »
So I have my Turtle Beach TAC connected to my Xbox One X front USB port strictly to power the device. 

Since the USB ports on the Xbox One X are always on (even when the system is off), my TAC always stays on even when the system is off, forcing me to unplug the USB from the Xbox One X every time I finishing playing.

I was wondering if anyone is aware of some type of USB on/off switch I could use so I don't have to unplug the USB cable from the console every time.  As an FYI, the USB cable is Mini USB to USB 2.0 (regular USB connection).

XIM APEX Discussions / Alpha Testers - XIM Apex vs XIM4
« on: 09:38 AM - 01/27/18 »
I understand one of the big value props to Apex is the 1ms response time.  I'm wondering if one of the Alpha Testers are able to demonstrate this difference in a video between Apex and the 4?

Or is this a case of feeling the difference but not being able to see it in a video?

I currently own an X1X and plan on keeping it.  I also own a PS4.  There's a Black Friday deal I can take advantage of to upgrade my PS4 to a PS4 Pro for an incremental amount.

The question is, should I get the Pro?  Any multi platform games I get will be on the X1X, so the Pro will primarily be for PS4 exclusives.  But is it worth the upgrade or should I just stick with the regular PS4?

Im gaming on a 4K monitor so I am taking advantage of 4K and the extra performance.

Let me know your thoughts.

Not sure where I should post this so feel free to move this post to the right section if needed.

I just upgraded to 20171007 firmware yesterday and have noticed that on xbox one (original xbox one from launch, not S) when I shut off the system, the Xim4 and devices connected to it shut off.  BUT, about a minute or less after the console shuts off, the XIM4 and devices connected to it all turn back on. 

I never had this issue with firmware 20170103, so I suspect it's something in the firmware causing this to happen.

General Discussion / Best 4K monitors for Xbox One X

With Xbox One X coming out soon, I'll need a new monitor (4K) to take advantage of the upgraded graphics.  Any recommendations?

Game Support / Battlefield 1 Config Question
« on: 05:43 PM - 03/02/17 »
Quick question on the default game settings for BF1.  In addition to changing the "Soldier Stick Sensitivity" to 100% and "Soldier Zoom Sensitivity" to 200% in the "Basic" setup for "Controls", am I supposed to change all the "Soldier Zoom Sensitivity" settings to 200% under "Advanced" as well?

XIM 4 Discussions / XIM4 USB Cable
« on: 08:45 PM - 12/04/16 »
Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping someone can help.  I need a secondary XIM4 USB cable for my X1 (the one that came with the XIM4 is connected to my PS4). 

I bought this one:


But it doesn't work with my XIM4.  Any Monoprice links to one that is confirmed to work with the XIM4 is appreciated.
