New Xbox One System Software Update in Preview Fixes Live TV and Quick Guide

Microsoft has restarted its regular preview updates for the Xbox One system software, and they released a new version to preview members, numbered th2_xb_rel_1602.160118-1900.

Below you can read the patch notes, directly from the private preview forums:


  • If your console is in Instant-On mode and you were selected to receive the update, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby.
  • NOTE: Once the update is available to you (today a majority of Preview users will receive this update but a small group will not), you can manually begin the update by navigating to Settings > System and selecting System Update.
  • If your console hasn’t downloaded and installed the update by 1:00AM PST 1/23/2016, you will be prompted to do so at that time.


OS version released: th2_xb_rel_1602.160118-1900
Available: 6:00PM PST 1/21 (2:00AM GMT 22/1)


• Live TV
You should no longer encounter a black screen or no signal error when launching Live TV after resuming from connected standby (using either a USB TV Tuner or via HDMI-in).

• Quick Guide
The Quick Guide should no longer fail to launch when double pressing the Xbox button or navigating to the left on the dashboard.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
