I couldn't find an Xbox One community so this might be the next best place to ask this.

I'm having a very strange issue where I'm only able to connect to the Xbox One devkit using the Xbox Dev Mode Companion app if and only if the Xbox One devkit performs a system update.

If I restart the devkit at any point afterwards, the Xbox Dev Mode Companion app will be unable to connect to the Xbox One devkit until the next system update.

 

The Xbox One Manager is able to connect to the consoles without issue, it's just the Xbox Dev Mode Companion app that has connection issues.

I haven't been able to find a solution to this issue yet, and it's fairly important to my remote work routine. Has anyone run into a similar issue and found a solution? Thanks.

Hi @EME_Jai 

 

There is Xbox forum in Microsoft Answers:

You may ask your question there where Xbox experts are present.

That was actually the first place I've tried posting, but I was re-directed here to post for dev support.

You are right, since the issue is more technical, it should be this forum or MSDN.

So I am wondering, are you trying to do the setup inside Windows 10?

If that is the case, you may post here:
