Xbox One March Update -The Xbox One March update is set to include a manual 50Hz option.

The feature looks to hopefully be a fix for a common reported problem experienced by European owners, in which the picture ‘judders’ when watching television as a result of Xbox One’s default 60Hz refresh rate.

Sky, Virgin, BT and Freeview boxes output in 50Hz, all resulting in frames being dropped.

Microsoft’s upcoming update will add a system menu option allowing people to switch between 50Hz and 60Hz modes.

The Xbox One update was previously previewed by Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb and Xbox engineer Richard Irving in a four-minute video discussing changes to party chat, cross-game chat and friends lists.
Users will also be able to search for friends, and will also be faced with more options when viewing profiles and scrolling through recent players
