So anyone else having trouble with "Xbox On" working? I have to say it like 5 times and loud to get it to turn the console on.

 

I am not the only one it seems also - http://www.ign.com/b...x-on.453542353/

I haven't run into that issue yet. Although I happen to be maybe 4 Ft away from Kinect when I'm turning it on.

Yeah I am only 5-6 feet away.. Kinect works fine with any other command, even with TV going, but dead silence and saying it loud, it ignores the command 4 out of 5 times.

Try calibrating it again and make sure it is in the correct position of max 6FT and no less than 2FT from the floor.

It has been a hit or a miss for me sometimes.  It worked fine this morning but last night it didn't.

I heard it might have to do with the standby setting, if you have it set to power saving then it won't work. (not an xb1 owner, just what I saw somewhere).

Power mode is set to "Instant On" and "Turn on XBox by Saying "Xbox On" is enabled.. If that setting was off or it was set to Power Saving it would probably never work.

same here I have tweeted XB support @XboxSupport1. Mine will not power up unless I am right over it and then sometimes it wont work either. After its on it works great, every voice command works to.  Anyway I have a vine video up of this issue. @mrdeezus. Xenodrome contact XB support at the twitter handle above. Hopefully its a software issue!

Could it be that the ambient noise level is actually quite high or there's a high power appliance next to the Kinect 2 ?

Negative, dead quiet when I try to use Xbox On. It works quite well with TV going on once everything is working.

Same issue here... im going to take my console back to the MS store. Turning it on by voice was the feature I wanted most and it doesn't work very frustrating....!!!

Works fine here. In fact, while testing the auto sign in feature I turned the console on and off by voice probably 10 times in 15 minutes, worked perfectly.
