Microsoft Xbox October system update released

Microsoft's Xbox October system update has been released, bringing a number of important features that support controlling the volume of the TV from the Xbox Series X|S console.

Change TV Volume – New CEC Feature for Xbox Series X|S

With the October update, Xbox Series X|S consoles can use an HDMI feature called Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) to send commands to CEC-enabled devices, such as TVs connected to the console.

As you can see from the image, players can change the TV volume from the Audio and Music section of the Xbox console. Just press the watermelon key on your Xbox controller to change or mute your TV volume without having to press the remote during gameplay.

Disable startup sound

The October update added a player-requested feature, the option to power on silently. Players can find this option in the Xbox console's settings, and can also adjust the power beep sound from this page.

Set up your favorite Xbox console

Make your console your primary Xbox so friends or family can access games and content when you're not signed in. Common Xbox consoles also allow players to play digital games offline, and some new settings screens have been added to make it easier for players to choose and change their favorite consoles when setting up a new Xbox.

Change the Xbox power mode name

After the October update, players will be able to configure their Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One consoles to use different power modes, and options have been renamed according to their preferences. "Standby" was updated to "Sleep" and "Energy saver" was updated to "Shutdown (energy saving)".

Xbox PIN

Xbox Keys and Guest Keys are updated to Xbox PIN and Xbox Guest PIN, which players can use with any Xbox console they sign in to and restrict access to things like purchases and parental controls.

Starting today, a firmware update for the Xbox controller will roll out that includes a bug fix for the USB adapter that connects to the Xbox Accessible Controller, as well as additional bug fixes for the following Xbox controllers:
  • Xbox Elite 2 Elite Controller II
  • Xbox Series X|S Wireless Controller
