Trying to connect Apple TV to XBOX One, doesn't work!

I don't use traditional cable.  I use an Apple TV for HULU and Netflix.  I have tried to hook up to the XBOX, assuming it was just a HDMI pass through.  I have my Apple TV connected, but all I get is sound and a black screen.  Any ideas? Is there a specific HDMI cable requirement?  I have seen people hook up a PS4 to an Aople TV, so I know it is not just cable boxes.

Although you can plug it in and get it to display. Voice commands and one guide do not support it.
