This has been a really recent occurrence for me also. And I get the same dirty look from my wife everytime it happens.
I Googled and some people say change it from instant on to energy saving and that will fix it. It is most definitely an Xbox One issue.

Used to live in Violet and Dad still lives in Arabi.
Lived there for 22 years and if it was like it was before Katrina, I'd move back in a second. Terribly different now.

Is there anyway that I will be able to get uverse or am I screwed? BTW I do have analog service. ...

Also, you will have people tell you that you need to buy expensive lump, but I have no problem with RO for $8.
Get you some good fruit wood for smoking.
The egg doesn't make much ash, so you don't need to clean it often, but I use just a wet/dry vac and suck it out when I do.

Next time when you pull one, don't put it in the oven. Instead wrap it in foil, and then wrap in a towel and stick in a cooler. That will keep them hot for about 3 to 4 hours. ...
