    Plus one on the dts-hd. Hopefully MS allows this soon. Is dolby true hd working, or is that also waiting on MS?

    It's tricky - some people hate the autoplay from an episode, others love it. I'll take another look at what we think is best for when you select from 'On Deck'.

    Personally I think continuous play would be cool, but I don't want people starting a show at bedtime and it running through the whole season while they are sleeping. This could be especially troublesome when the server has to transcode the media. If I remember correctly Netflix will play a few shows then check to see if the viewer is still there. This is a step in the right direction but it could be even better. Netflix will wait a few seconds before starting the next episode but this doesn't guarantee anyone is still watching the show.

    What I'd suggest and be ALL IN FOR is to play the show then throw up a prompt at the end of the episode ie:
    "Hit ENTER (A) to continue to next episode or BACK (B) to quit"
    So with one button press it could continue or exit and will stay prompted like that until a choice is made. No more issues with people falling asleep or walking out of the room etc and it playing episodes no one is watching.

    11.2K+ Movies, 410 Shows - 34.2K+ TV Episodes, 490 Christmas Movies, 445 Documentary, 290 3D Movies, 1300 Sports Matches, 1280 Educational Videos, Premium Music: 215K+ Tracks, 900 GB Plex Meta-Data. 6 Network Cable Tuners.

    That's not helpful at all. The whole point is to play the next episode with no interaction at all. Here us what I would want. Go to on deck. "A" does what it does now. Opens the episode info. "X" does what it does now and plays the episode directly. But "Y"(or any button for that matter) should play the next episode in a continuous fasion. It obviously has to be some type of opt in for the turds that fall asleep and cry because they don't know what episode they fell asleep with. But there has to be a way to do this if Plex wants "parity". As I can do this on my android TV.

    Or just add an option in settings "Continously play episodes on/off" ;-)

    This is how netflix does it (at the server level, so it's the same across clients). I would like the "plex next" episode though even if I have it set to not go automatically to the next episode (again, like netflix) as it would be nice to not have to back out and select the next one from on deck and such.

    My horror movie folder has 1000s of films. When I display in Plex on Xbox one app and want to play a film that starts with T it does not go to the T's and when I scroll to the right too fast it restarts the cover listed back at the top of the list. Also when I view the descriptive page of a film and use the B button to back out, instead of selecting the area of the list where the film I was just viewing is located, it reloads to the beginning of the entire list. These bugs make viewing large folders very frustrating and time consuming. Can we get a fix on this please? Could you add a search like on the PC app? How about the option to disable the suggested columns page and go straight to Browse list? When you fix it, I will buy lifetime plex pass its the only thing holding me back.

    You certainly are experiencing some pain points with the current app but let me address the issues you raised.

    when I scroll to the right too fast it restarts the cover listed back at the top of the list

    This is a known bug and will be fixed in a forthcoming update.

    Also when I view the descriptive page of a film and use the B button to back out, instead of selecting the area of the list where the film I was just viewing is located, it reloads to the beginning of the entire list.

    This also will be fixed in a forthcoming update.

    Could you add a search like on the PC app?

    Search functionality is definitely on the roadmap, but unfortunately I can't tell you exactly when it will arrive.

    How about the option to disable the suggested columns page and go straight to Browse list?

    We're always looking into how to improve the user experience in the app, and figuring out the best way to quickly reach the content you want/are looking for is part of that. Hopefully with the changes we've made and bugs fixed in the next update, and ones coming after, you'll find it an easier experience to reach your movies.

    Any idea when we can expect the new update? Is it already submitted to Microsoft?

    FEATURE REQUEST: Please add 'Plex Home' support for the Xbox One platform. This is a staple in our household (on the ROKU) and we'd love to see it come forward to this platform as well.

    Plex Home is already supported, just not in the same way as other clients. If they add it the other way (the way your desiring it to be implemented), they will need to add an option for auto sign in per your account like the do for other apps. Otherwise it would be really annoying to have to punch in my pin everytime to use the app, instead of how it is currently used...

    The implementation on roku is perfect...if you go to preplay screen it doesn't happen...if you hit play on episode it does

    Think positively Dom! I think you'll pass first time this time...

    Can you maybe give us a little inside why the Xbox 360 app is that much ahead? - Is the development process on Xbox One more complicated?

    My understanding was that development for the xbox 360 app was actually quite some time before the Xbox one app (even though the xbox one app was released first).
