New Preview Alpha 1804 System Update – 3/1/18


Starting at 6 p.m. PST today, members of the Xbox One Preview Update Alpha ring will begin receiving the latest Xbox One system update (1804.180227-1801). This update includes brand new features as detailed in our earlier post.  Read on to learn more about fixes and known issues in the latest system update.

Fixes:

Installation

  • Fixed several issues to improve the reliability and usability of game installations, updates, and content management.
    • Fixed an issue which impacted transferring content between drives.
    • Enabling the download 4K updates checkbox will now cause 4K updates to show up in the Updates tab of My games & apps.
    • Fixed an issue where installations interrupted due to slow network conditions could fail to automatically resume.
    • Fixed an issue where a “You need to free up space” dialog was displaying too often.
    • Fixed a bug where all items in the install Queue could show as “Queued” without making progress.

Profile Color

  • Fixed an issue which sometimes caused an incorrect Profile color to be used when powering on the console.

Known Issues:

Black Screen

  • When resuming from connected standby (with the console in Instant-On mode), you may encounter a black screen on the TV or monitor. You can avoid this issue by powering on the console prior to powering on the TV or monitor.
  • Workaround 1: If stuck in this state, unplug and reinsert the HDMI cord into the back of the console, then power the TV off/on.
  • Workaround 2: Disable IR blasting in Settings to prevent this issue from reoccurring.

System Update

  • When installing a system update, you may encounter an E200 error at the last stage of the installation.
  • Workaround: Unplug and re-plug the power cord, then power on the console normally—the console should go through the standard start up sequence and land on the dashboard.

Pins

  • If Microsoft Edge was pinned prior to downloading the 1804 update, attempting to launch Microsoft Edge from the existing pin will fail.
  • Workaround: Delete the old Microsoft Edge pin and re-pin Microsoft Edge.

Dolby Atmos

  • You may notice audio drops in receivers using Dolby Atmos for Home Theater.

Netflix

  • If Netflix crashes when first launched, check for an app update on the Store or from My games & apps.

HBO Go

  • If HBO GO crashes when first launched, check for an app update on the Store or from My games & apps.

Settings

  • When accessing the Language & location page in Settings, it may take a long time for the page to load.

Store

  • When browsing Add-Ons in the Store, the Show All page may appear blank

Pi-Hole

  • Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.
  • Workaround: Add clientconfig.passport.net to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.
