The last update for the Xbox One Preview program added OneGuide support in the UK and the latest update has some interesting new features. One features for UK users is 50Hz Blu-ray support, so Blu-rays with 50hz video output will now play at 50hz which should improve the video quality. Other changes include a button to update the system when an update is available saving you waiting for the Xbox to do the update whenever it feels like it and there are controller firmware updates.

Details from Microsoft:

  • Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
  • Controller and headset adaptor firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
  • Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. After this update, if your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.
