System Update

  • Users will no longer an E200 error at the last stage of the installation or when shutting down some games.

Known Issues:

System Update

  • This build installation will take a bit longer than usual, as it will require the full update size of 3.5 GB. This update does not factory reset the console it is a large payload. Download times are dependent on your Internet speeds and can likely be improved by using a wired network connection.


  • If Microsoft Edge was pinned prior to downloading the 1804 update, attempting to launch Microsoft Edge from the existing pin will fail.
  • Workaround: Delete the old Microsoft Edge pin and re-pin Microsoft Edge.


  • If Netflix crashes when first launched, check for an app update on the Store or from My games & apps.  You may need to uninstall Netflix – perform a Hard reboot – aka pull power for 10 seconds and locate Netflix from the Store.


  • When accessing the Language & location page in Settings, it may take a long time for the page to load.


  • When browsing Add-Ons in the Store, the Show All page may appear blank


  • Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.
  • Workaround: Add to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.


Microsoft Edge

  • Microsoft Edge may sometimes fail to show the cursor. Workaround is shutdown Microsoft Edge and relaunch.

Audio Issues

  • We are aware that some Spatial Audio users will experience unexpected game volumes and are working on a fix.
  • We are aware that the Mono output feature is not working as expected in latest builds. The team has identified a fix and is testing. Please turn off the feature if you are using an audio receiver with less than 7.1 audio channels.
  • We have identified an issue with Dolby Atmos for Home Theater and certain AVR models that will result in random sound cut outs. If a sound cut out ever occurs you can change your audio format settings to something else and then back to reset it.

Now TV

  • In the Now TV app some UI elements are disappearing during playback.

Settings – Accessory app

  • Some users may experience a problem not being able to assign controller configurations in the Xbox Accessory app.

Wi-Fi Lag Issues

  • We are aware of an issue in which your Wi-Fi connection may lag for 3-4 seconds and reoccur after 30 minutes. Workaround: The only known workaround at this point is to use wired networking
