The lack of pass through is kind of an issue. I don't want my family to have to turn on the xbox, then tell it to start TV when in the past all they had to do was turn on the TV to watch it.
We have comcast, and we have a cable box. I was pleased to discover the xbox one does a very good job of controlling the cable box as if it was a remote control. I'd like to continue to use it with live tv but I need to be able to connect the cable box right to the TV as well. My idea is to pick up an HDMI splitter and split the hdmi from the cable box to both the xbox and the TV. The xbox will then of course also connect to the TV through a different HDMI input. This way the person watching TV can choose which input and choose to have xbox one enhance the experience or go traditional.
My concern is the xbox one will not be able to communicate back along the hdmi to the cable box through a splitter. Has any one tried this, are there any splitter brands that some one might recommend?
