just use regular headphones via the TV, so no advice other than that...the dedicated headphones for X1 and PS4 are just too expensive for me.

I only just pulled the trigger and bought men a couple days ago and love it so far. The main issue I have is that I need to speak really loud while watching TV. I also can't just say a channel number, I have to rely on it recognizing the name which it doesn't always. Also Oneguide has a page up/down and jump up/down function but I would like a line up/down button so I can just keep saying "line down" then "select" for the highlighted channel. Lastly, how do I get TV off of the large tile in home screen? If I'm done watching TV, I don't want to keep hearing and seeing it on the dashboard.

Gaming is great so far. Forza 5 is incredible. I also have Titanfall which I'm still on the tutorial because I can't wall walk lol. Tomb Raider looks great too. Assasin's Creed seems good so far although it doesn't seem to use the next gen graphics capability like the thriller for the next one shows.

Overall extremely happy with it. I actually I traded in 2 system and tons of games and got the Titanfall Edition and Forza 5 and they owed ME $2.13, lol. I'm just waiting for a game that us Kinect motion. I got up this morning and before even turning the lights on, in a dark room, I said "xbox on" and it said hello Pat.

What you want to do is click on the menu button on the controller while the big tile on the dash is highlighted.  You will then have an option to close the app, stopping live tv from being shown. 

 

I use that function all the time to close an app when I'm done using it.

I think you mean "mine" ... unless you normally purchase human beings

 

 

and I'll be on my second Xbox One soon, I had to ship mine to the repair place in Burlington, Ontario this morning. mine died. fortunately, I was able to remove the Dead Rising 3 disc that was inside he unit.
