  • Sign-in
    When using Arabic or Hebrew language and signing in with a profile using the “Lock it down” security preference, the sign-in screen which requests Microsoft account e-mail address and password is distorted. This does not affect the profile if it is set to use the “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers” security preferences.
    Workaround: Set the console to use another language, sign-in, and set the profile’s security preference to “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers”. Alternatively, you can still type in your password as normal using the virtual keyboard though the screen is distorted.
  • Netflix
    When using Hebrew language, Netflix fails to launch.
  • Minecraft Better Together Beta
    Other games fail to launch after launching the Minecraft Beta.
    Workaround: This occurs if the Minecraft Beta is the first game launched after powering on the console; launch another game before Minecraft to avoid this issue. If you are stuck in this state, hard reset your console.
  • Blu-Ray Player
    3D Blu-Ray content plays in 2D.
  • Game Hub
    Game Hub isn’t accurately tracking Gamerscore and achievement unlocks for certain games.
