Disc and Blu-ray settings

Note This page describes the basic settings for playing a game, music, or movie disc on your Xbox One console. For solutions to issues you may be having with disc playback, see How to troubleshoot problems playing a disc on your Xbox One.

To configure your console’s audio settings, see Choosing speaker audio settings on Xbox One.

Disc and Blu-ray settings allow you to set the Xbox One console behavior for disc playback. There are three basic types of settings:

  • Disc settings
  • Blu-ray settings
  • Preferred language settings

You can get to these settings by following these steps:

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  2. Select System > Settings > Devices & streaming.
  3. Select either Disc or Blu-ray to adjust your settings.

Disc settings

The following settings control how the console behaves when a disc is inserted:

  • Play disc automatically
    If you select this setting, a disc begins playing automatically when you insert it.
  • Resume playback
    If you select this setting, the player bookmarks the point at which you stopped watching the disc. When you start watching again, it resumes at the same point.

Blu-ray settings

The following advanced settings are available for the Blu-ray player:

  • Dolby Digital dynamic range control
    This setting allows for full audio or modifies the audio to keep a consistent volume even through the loudest action scenes.
  • Enable BD Live to improve Blu-ray playback
    This setting allows access to additional features and content through the BD Live service.
  • Persistent storage
    Use this setting to clear Blu-ray–specific data that's been cached to the console.
  • Let my receiver decode audio
    Use this setting if your home theater system uses an audio format such as Dolby Atmos or DTS:X.
