Here are the known issues in the first Xbox One Creators Update preview

Microsoft today released the first Creators Update Insider Preview build for the Xbox One, including lots of new features, along with a new UI. The build number is 15009, the version number is 1703, and the build string is rs2_xbox_rel_1703.170118-1900.

But just like any Windows Insider Preview, there are some known issues that you need to be aware of:

  • Controllers & accessories
    When a steering wheel accessory is connected, the console interface may freeze and become unresponsive.
    Workaround: Disconnect the steering wheel accessory, and hard reset the console (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

  • Sign-in
    With profile sign-in settings set to “Lock it down”, you may be unable to sign-in again playing a game, then signing out.
    Workaround: Hard reset the console (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

  • VUDU
    VUDU may fail to launch or videos may fail to play due to a connecting to network error.

  • Apps
    You may be unable to fully navigate in certain apps due to the lack of a cursor. The affected apps include, but are not limited to: Baconit, British Radio, American Radio, UrzaGatherer, and MSN Weather.

  • EA Access
    If you have an EA Access subscription and own a large number of digital games or apps, you may have issues installing or playing EA Access content.

  • Jump Guide
    Microsoft Edge webpages which are pinned in the Jump Guide fail to launch the webpage.

  • Screen Dimming
    The screen may dim after a short amount of time while viewing videos in certain apps (Hulu Plus).

  • Settings - Ease of Access
    When enabling the Mono output setting in Ease of Access - Audio, Settings becomes unresponsive, crashes, and fails to launch on subsequent attempts.
    Workaround: To launch Settings, perform a hard reset (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

  • Settings - Display & sound
    The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out; enabling these settings now will have no effect.

  • Audio
    After resuming from connected standby, you may be unable to hear others in party chat when using a headset.

As always, you should be aware of the known issues before installing an Insider Preview build. For example, if you use VUDU or other video streaming applications, you may run into issues.

Microsoft also announced today that members of the Xbox Insider Program will finally receive system updates. Previously, this was only available to members that carried over from the Xbox One Preview Program. There will be four rings, with the lowest level similar to the Release Preview ring of the Windows Insider Program, and if you want to get into the higher rings, you'll need to work for it.
