Connect Xbox One to a sound system. Here's how: Leave the HDMI cable connected to your TV for video. Connect one end of the digital audio cable to the S/PDIF (optical audio) port on the console.
Correspondingly, what is S PDIF cable?
S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a type of digital audio interconnect used in consumer audio equipment to output audio over reasonably short distances. The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fibre optic cable with TOSLINK connectors.
Xbox One uses the Kinect to control your home theater equipment through infrared (IR) signals, the same technology used in remote controls. An IR extension cable can help deliver the infrared signal directly to your devices, even when they're closed away in cabinets.
You can connect your console to Xbox Live with a wired or wireless connection. A wired network connection is the fastest and most reliable way to connect to Xbox Live. For a wired connection, you use a network cable to connect your Xbox One console to a router or modem.
Press and hold the Bind button and the Eject button, then press the Power Button. Note: Bind is located on the left side of the console for the original Xbox One and below the power button on the Xbox One S. The Eject button is located next to the disc drive on the front of the console.
Microsoft designed the console without bluetooth, the prevailing wireless audio standard. This means that by default, you cannot play wireless audio from an Xbox One. However, there are a number of wireless headphones that work with the Xbox One. These aren't exactly speakers, but this is one solution.
Audio receiver with optical or sound bar
- Connect your set-top box HDMI output to the Xbox One HDMI input.
- Connect the Xbox One HDMI output to the HDMI input on your TV.

Also known generically as an "optical audio cable" or just "optical cable", its most common use is in consumer audio equipment (via a "digital optical" socket), where it carries a digital audio stream from components such as CD and DVD players, DAT recorders, computers, and modern video game consoles, to an AV receiver
Load your USB flash drive with video from your PC or Mac. Then plug it into the side-mounted USB port on the left-side of your Xbox One console. If you have a Kinect 2 sensor say “Xbox, go to Media Player” or open the My Games and Apps area to find Media Player.
You may have to enter your router's password first, depending on your router's security settings. Xbox One will now remember this wireless setup and use it automatically on your following sessions. If you have an Ethernet cable connected to your console, it will automatically go into “wired” Internet connection mode.
You must use a large paper clip because it must be inserted about 1.5 inches (nearly 4 centimeters) to successfully eject the disc.
- Position the console horizontally, as you would position a DVD player.
- Find the eject hole behind the vents on the left side of the console.
Xbox One March update adds Dolby Digital optical audio support. Right now, the system can only output DTS Digital Surround, or uncompressed stereo, 5.1 or 7.1 audio, over HDMI; if you're using an optical cable, the console currently supports uncompressed stereo or 5.1 sound.
To fix localized Xbox One Xbox Live sign-in problems or games not starting (aka games hanging on the title screen), perform a full reboot of your system, also known as a powercycle or Full Reboot, cold restart or hard reset.

The point of HDMI-in is to allow you to hook up a cable box, with output then running from the Xbox One to your television. Since the HDMI-in port is a standard option, it can accept video input from a PS4 and also accept a video stream from a PC.
Plug the power source into the back of the Xbox One, and then plug the secondary cable into the power source. The other end will go into your wall outlet. Plug the HDMI cable into the Xbox One, and plug the other end into your HDTV. Place your batteries into the back of the Xbox One Controller.

- After restart, press the eject button next to the disc slot to remove the disc.
Considering that the Xbox One supports up to 8 wireless controllers at once, this is likely the limit for any type of controller (wired or wireless). Meaning, if you had 4 wireless and 4 wired, that'd be at the 8 limit.
You must have a very specific SPDIF digital cable. While a SPDIF coaxial connection looks like an RCA analog type connection, it is not the same. SPDIF is a stereo digital connection. RCA is a mono analog connection.
