Kinect Voice Commands for TV Control

So I got my Xbox One set up yesterday, and finally had a chance to tinker around with it. Over all I am very happy with the performance and am loving the voice commands. Being able to "snap TV" and watch monday night football while the next forza race was preparing was just incredible.

Using voice commands to control the channels was about 75%, but there are some channels it will just not recognize.

Here is a list of the channels that worked flawlessly(On DirecTV):






-Discovery Channel

-History Channel

-Travel Channel

- NFL Network

- E! for this one just say "E" not entertainment


Here is a list (small at the time) of the ones that will flat out not work(On DirecTV):

- HGTV (Every time I get KTTV or KKTV whatever it is) I have tried "Home and Garden Television" as well

- DIY Network (Tried "D.I.Y", "D.I.Y Network", "D.I.Y Channel", and various other commands as well, no luck with any.


I figured this could be a good place for people record what works, what doesn't, or to report different pronunciations if the obivous doesnt work.


Sorry if this has laready been started.
