We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
I actually hooked up my laptop with it and tried to watch a movie through my xbox one. Yes it worked but the thing is you cannot control the laptop with the xbox one controller which makes it pointless. I really don't want to waste the HDMI IN port. I was
hoping MS can let us use a windows laptop on xbox one
Something like this.....there is no promise that the xbox one will be able to control your laptop.....I am sure your laptop is not officially supported, you need to look online to see if others have been able to pull it off. And of course, does your laptop
have an ir port that supports remote controls and the like??
www.amazon.com/.../2 This is a blaster that plugs into the xbox one, but again, you need to have an ir port already on your laptop in order for this
to work......actually you have to figure a lot out unless you can find someone online (via google) who has figured it out with your laptop model. But if you have a program/OS on your laptop that takes a remote control signal via ir, there is a chance to operate
via xbox one.
I don't want to stray the topic or start an inappropriate conversation but I certainly breathed a sigh of relief when I read the OP after seeing that title!
On Topic; I've heard of people using the HDMI as a passthrough and even using other consoles through it but as mention, the lag means it's only really good for movies and TV as any input is too delayed to be of any use in a gaming situation or even general
