Known Issues

Although known issues may have been mentioned in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes, rest assured they are being addressed. It may take Xbox engineers some time to find a resolution. If you encounter any of these issues, please follow the provided guidance and report feedback using the Report a Problem feature.


  • Some users have reported intermittent audio problems across the dashboard, games, and applications.
    • Troubleshooting: If you experience issues, ensure your TV and all other equipment have the latest firmware installed. If unsure, contact the manufacturer for assistance. Additional troubleshooting tips can be found here: Troubleshoot audio on your Xbox console.
    • Feedback: If problems persist after firmware updates and troubleshooting, submit feedback via Report a Problem when facing the issue. Select the “Reproduce with advanced diagnostics” option, then choose the category “Console experiences” and “Console Audio Output Issues”.
      • Note: Include detailed information about the problem, onset, setup, troubleshooting steps taken, and any additional data to help reproduce the issue.


  • We are investigating reports of a connectivity issue where the console may not immediately connect to the network upon booting up. If you experience this, report the issue via Report a Problem as soon as possible.
    • Workaround: Allow a minute or two for the connection to establish. If the console still doesn’t connect, restart it from the Power Center or guide, then report feedback with Report a Problem. Learn more about restarting here: How to restart or power cycle your Xbox console.
