    Mine won’t load up. Took nearly 2 hours to “prepare” after downloading then met with a black screen for ages. Now I get a green screen saying Xbox One and can’t go any further!

      That happened to me for the past hour, I hard reset off the black screen, got a green screen, gave it 5 minutes and the reset again. Now it works. Now I just have to figure out how to get youtube to work without it crashing my system.
