I have attempted to connect the output of my cable decoder to the HDMI input of my Xbox One, wanting to switch between watching television and playing games out of the Xbox One. The problem is that, after a few hours, my cable provider detects that its output is not going directly to a television and blocks the signal, rendering this configuration effectively useless. I called Videotron about it and it is their policy to prevent users from doing this, fearing that their signal is pirated.
Needless to say, this unacceptable to me.
Any suggestions? Would there be an option for the Xbox One to fool Videotron decoder to think that it is actually connected to a television set?
Or could there be some kind of device I could buy that I could plug between the decider and the Xbox One that would send the required feedback?
Or is there a way to connect the cable to the Xbox One directly?
