    Mmh, I thought all Xbox One games would get anisotropic filtering? I started Eastshade and it looks very much like simple bilinear.

    I wonder if maybe anisotropic doesn't work if the game isn't at least using trilinear...

    I think it's great. My only problems with it are, seemingly, generic Xbox problems. The UI is a disaster, they have removed remote play to PC for some reason and the headsets use a proprietary connection method which is just idiotic.

    The console itself is cool, though. I'm going to get a lot of value out of it, I think

    Yep, love mine. Itís neat, inoffensive and just sits there looking chipper in the bedroom. And, yes, Microsoft still couldnít do a decent interface if their lives depended on it, I half expect to need to right click on a little grey dialogue box, twat about with 37 confusing options and hit ďapplyĒ.

    Hot little fucker though- even in standby itís constantly hot. Thinking of turning off the standby download options, but that feels a bit self defeating.

    Is it? The win10 Xbox companion app only sees it as an Xbox one and won't connect to it, giving me a 'game streaming is not enabled' error even though it is. Google seems to suggest this feature is not available on the series series.

    Works on my phone, though because, obviously it would work on an apple device and not a Microsoft one.

    Phone works, pc doesn't unless you download a test streaming app but i have a slight suspicion that app is not using the local network and instead going over the Internet.

    Can you run the android app through some kind of shell on PC?

    I have a very vague rule of thumb that I wonít make a companyís product work for them anymore. I believe there is some kind of beta streaming app (maybe the one mentioned above) on the Spanish MS App store but I would rather complain about it than fanny around with workarounds.

    The one I mentioned appears to be a test app for developers. It does work but it is yet another xbox app and like you said nick there's a small amount of faffing to get it to work.

    I really don't know how they have such a fucked up xbox app ecosystem. There is the console companion, the Xbox app, the game pass app, the have beta versions of all those apps too. This is yet another one on top of all those.
    It's so unnecessarily complicated.
