Fixes:

Blu Ray Discs and DVDs Recognized as Audio CDs
When inserting a Blu Ray disc or DVD, the console should no longer incorrectly recognize it as an audio CD.

Known Issues:

Game Updates
You may encounter an issue in which game updates start at a high percentage (99-100%) and linger at that percentage for a long time. Unless the game tile displays an error message, the update is being successfully applied, but the progress bar is displaying a higher value than it should.

If you encounter this issue please submit feedback by holding down the Xbox button on the controller and selecting Report a problem from the power menu.

At the moment, we don’t yet know precisely when the update will be made available to the public, but it should be some time in February.
