I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?
Basically it does not matter what App I have as the "main" app on the One's Home Screen, the XBox One eventually opens it completely on it's own. I thought perhaps, just perhaps, I was enabling it by Kinect's voice commands, but I literally just sat there for 10 minutes and watched it happen and not a single thing was said in my house at all.
It has happened with everything from Dead Rising, to Ryse, to the NFL app, to Settings. Whatever is the last open main app on the home screen was, you know, the biggest square on the Home screen that shows what is currently running or what was last opened, it just opens up on it's own eventually. Controller is completely off. The One is obviously on but I usually am switched over to another component like my TV or PS4.
It was just mildly annoying at first, but now it is getting pretty damn frustrating. I purposely go to the Home Screen while playing a game to "pause" everything so I can just resume it, and I come back 45 minutes later only to find the game running and asking me to continue as I died.
So just wondering if anyone else is seeing anything similar? And perhaps if somehow my Kinect is responsible, although I just cannot see that being the case as it is my understanding you have to say the words "XBox go to (game or app)" and I am 110% those words are not being spoken in the every day conversation of my home.
Also an interesting note, my controller is almost always off when this happens, so it is not like somehow the A button is accidentally being pressed either.

Not a bad idea, I will check and see if that is somehow enabled, although that does not really explain why the NFL app seems to launch on its own.
I thought of something else. Andrew, have you by any chance also checked out XBox Fitness?
XBox Fitness (which has crashed for me multiple times), DR3, and the NFL app, are the only 3 apps I can think of that are new since this all started happening.
I really cannot fathom it is Kinect, as it takes a pretty specific set of words to launch on app, words that I am very certain have not been spoken, unless of course it is reading things completely wrong, which it does not appear to be as it does work when I use it.
I also have seem some wacky behavior ever since I unhooked my cable box from the HDMI input. A few days ago out of nowhere I got a message that my cable box was unplugged, even though it has been over a month since I unplugged it. I think the OS itself is just a tad wonky, and hopefully these types of things get sorted out with the first update.
A couple of settings that might help that come to mind:
1. Try turning off the 'Resume Games Quickly (Beta)' option in the power section of settings if you had it turned on.
2. Regarding the cable box issue: is the cable box still setup under the 'TV & One Guide'/'Devices'/ section of settings? if so, you can clear out that and maybe it will stop bugging you.
3. The only auto play setting is in the 'Disc & Bluray' section Go to the full post
