XBone update preview

Do we know if the update makes xim4e stop working? A friend of mine just got the update and the controller update as well. I registered for it but I don't want to update if it's going to mean no kb/m. Who wants to be the guinea pig?

FYI - Dolby Digital through optical is supported with the update. Exciting news for those of us with Mixamps/Surround processors. Hopefully we will get audio passthrough soon!  ;)

Xbox Live will send you a message with a code. Redeem the code to download the preview registration app. Once you register you wait a day or two and check the app again and it will tell you if you've been accepted or not.

Can someone explain to me the whole audio situation? Dolby Digital is different how from the Dolby Headphone mode I use with my Mixamp?

I heard some headphones can't handle the DTS signal? If its a lot better what do we need to make it work?

Thanks.

Not that I would use it, but where did the "Uncompressed Stereo" option go? Does it just disappear when you scroll down through the list?

Also strange that it doesn't list 5.1 vs 7.1 like the HDMI Audio options do....

Dolby digital is what you need for mixamp. It takes that and turns it into Dolby headphone.
That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

😂😂😭

It's there for HDMI Audio but not Digital (Optical). I thought the same thing until I actually tried to hook up my headset and was sorely disappointed.

I guess stereo is whats selected by default for optical? I'm pretty sure my Mixamp takes the stereo signal and turns it into Dolby Headphone already.

That is correct, the Mixamp is currently taking the stereo signal and 'upconverting' it to virtual surround sound. However, the stereo signal is inferior to the Dolby signal so you should notice a significant improvement with Dolby and the Mixamp.

Here is an excerpt from a moderator on Astro's forum, prior to the update:
Quote
Dolby Digital isn't supported through the Xbox One via ... Optical. It will be patched in at a later date by Microsoft. We do indeed take a stereo signal and upscale it to an enhanced 7.1 audio experience although if the quality of the audio from the console is poor ... , then we can't do a lot about that as it's a console problem, not a direct issue with our equipment.

Man I'm so glad that Dolby is right around the corner. That was my biggest pet peeve of xb1. Now I can finally utilize my K702's to there fullest.
