Microsoft Says “No” to Xbox One DVR

XboxOneMain-1200-80

Microsoft has long promised TV DVR functionality to their Xbox One user base. It included the ability to pause live TV and schedule programs for recording. It was to be done through their existing TV Tuner adapter that takes TV antenna signals and allows them to be viewed on the Xbox One.

Here is what Microsoft said about the situation:

“After careful consideration, we’ve decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10. We’re always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year.”

This comes as a slap in the face to loyal Xbox One owners who have been looking forward to this feature. I know people who have held off on buying a DVR because they thought their Xbox One would have that functionality. Hopefully in its place Microsoft adds some new great gaming features as they mention.

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading incredibly slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it
    a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  3. I must thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this site.
    I really hope to view the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future as well.

    my own website now 😉

  4. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way
    you can remove people from that service? Thanks!
