## Known Issues
While the team at Xbox is actively working on resolving all issues, here are some known issues that are still being investigated:
– Some users have reported intermittent issues with audio across the dashboard, games, and apps. If you’ve experienced these issues, make sure you have the latest firmware updates for your TV and other equipment. If problems persist, you may need to contact the manufacturer for further assistance.
– **Note:** If you continue to experience audio issues after applying the latest firmware updates, please use the “Report a Problem” feature to submit detailed feedback.
– Reports of an unexpected cursor remaining visible during gameplay in some titles are being investigated.
– **Workaround:** If you have a physical mouse connected to your console, you can move the cursor out of the way. Alternatively, disconnecting the mouse should remove the cursor.
### Keyboard Button Mapping for Xbox Controllers
– Changing your keyboard language settings while the Xbox Accessories app is open will reflect the changes after quitting the app or rebooting the console.
– There are reports of consoles not connecting to the network as expected on boot. If you experience this issue, be sure to report it using the “Report a Problem” feature as soon as possible.
## Reporting Issues and Seeking Support
To make sure Xbox engineers are informed about any issues you encounter, utilize the “Report a Problem” feature. Although a response may not be guaranteed for every submission, the data gathered from these reports is crucial for finding resolutions.
If you’re an Xbox Insider looking for support or have any concerns, the community subreddit is a great place to connect with fellow insiders, moderators, and official Xbox staff. Before posting a new issue, it’s a good practice to check if the same problem has already been addressed by looking through recent posts in the subreddit. Using the “Report a Problem” feature in addition to posting on the subreddit helps the support team better understand and address your issues.
We appreciate the Xbox Insider subreddit community for their valuable insights and the friendly environment they have fostered. For more information regarding the Xbox Insider Program and to stay updated with future Xbox Insider Release Notes, follow the official Xbox Insider Twitter account.
