UWP/Xbox Known Issues & Bugs - READ BEFORE POSTING!!!
#1
As explained in our news post on the website, https://kodi.tv/article/kodi-xbox-one, the UWP version of Kodi is built upon the current alpha development version for Kodi v18 Leia and so will have some rough edges, also as a new platform the UWP alpha builds are initially likely to be more buggy than the alpha versions available for the other platforms.

Features not yet implemented
 
  1. Accessing remote SMB/samba shares - (available in early access test builds)
  2. XBOX optical drive - API access is restricted to only Microsoft's own apps
Can't be implemented
  1. Passthrough audio not working - Not supported by Microsoft for 3rd party apps
  2. Playback of VIDEO_TS folders due to UWP limitation. Only ISO playback is supported so you need to convert VIDEO_TS into an ISO file
  3. Python _subprocess module is not available on UWP (for current implementation), so an author of the add-on must work around or not use it for UWP
  4. NFO / XML will probably not be read by our scraper from attached storage devices

Known issues
 
Acknowledged bugs
  1. Kodi data not shared between gamertag profiles (seems apps have different settings for each profile)
  2. Controller does not work on profile login screen
Fixed
  1. Screen dims during playback of video - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  2. Using apps such as Kore to control Kodi does not currently work - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  3. No access to removable devices - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  4. UPnP not working - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  5. Playback of HEVC Main 10 can cause the app to crash - temporary disabled in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180106)
  6. B  - Back button problem when navigating - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  7. Crashing when enabling a PVR add-on - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180105)
  8. Remote control devices do not currently work - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180215)
  9. Display output is currently limited to 1080p - fixed in master and will be in next Store update (compiled version at least: 20180225)
  10. No 24Hz refreshrate switching - The SDK we currently use does not contain this function, however this function has been added in later SDK's by Microsoft so will become possible once we update the SDK we use
  11. Possible audio distortion one live channels - fixed in early access test builds

If you are mentioning an issue always report the compiled version which you can find in the system info panel and a full debug log.

Kodi v18 for XBOX test version registration

We will try to do frequent test version updates to registered users as the "flighted" submission process is much faster than the official store. This way we can get early feedback and crashlogs before we push it to official store.

Since this will be a manual step getting you added to the list you may need some patience before you get an update.

Registration form: click here to go to the Google form

Note - There will be no confirmation you have been added to the list. We recommend you hit the check for updates function in the XBOX menu to make sure you get the update.
