    Hey, how long does it take to reboot? Should I leave it for a few minutes?

    I wonder if you could tell me if the Kinect voice commands should change to the new ‘name:command’? Or stay with ‘XBOX:Command’? I just learned how to start and shut-off my devices by a single voice command in a brand new XBOXONE. Now I wish to fine tune.

    Note on Xbox One (running OS 10.0.nnn) the Xbox system name is only associated with the IPv6 network stack; it is not associated with the IPv4 network address.

    On an IPv4 only system/network, the following options are available:
    1. Use the IPv4 address directly eg. Ping
    2. Make an entry in the hosts file on relevant systems.
    3. On my DHCP server make a reservation and assign a hostname to the IP address.

    On an IPv6 system (or dual IPv4/v6 stack) the hostname can be used eg. Ping XboxOne

      It is not going to delete anything. It is just a name change.
