"Record that" function when using Xbox One TV app (Xbox 360 on passthrough)

Is there any specific reason this can't be done? I still actively use my Xbox 360 and I play through the pass through on my Xbox one. I never saw the point in spending a high amount of money on a capture card, but now that I have something that has the ability to record short clips, I tried to look into it and found out that it cannot be used in the "TV app". Is there a technical reason for this or just something the team overlooked?

Because then people would be able to record stuff off anything they have plugged into the pass through. When this comes to tv and stuff it would cause a lot of problems with copywrite when it comes to people's uploads.

That makes complete sense. But I do think a workaround could be made. For example maybe some sort of signal sent form Xbox 360 to the One. Just looking for a workaround to spending another 150$ to stream gameplay since I already own a piece that can.

I'm sure they could work it out. Will they? Probably not. The didn't design the hdmi in as a passthrough for the 360. It is meant as a tv option. Hence the reason no matter what you have plugged into it, you still have to say "xbox watch tv" to get it to switch. Hey don't get me wrong. I also would love that feature. To many times have I been playing 360 and yelled out xbox record that just out of sheer habit when something cool happens.

As much as I would like to knock them, they have been pretty responsive to community feedback, it's really just a matter of getting it seen and supported...which I do not have the time to do. Definitely not worth the extra investment of money. Oh well. just seems odd to leave a console in the dust that they clearly want to have in the development cycle for 2 more years. I've also yelled that out while playing 360, happens to the best of us. Thanks for your input.
