Spectate and theater mode not working.

Halo 5 is not letting me spectate friends while they’re playing or let me watch film in theater mode. It tells me to check my privacy settings to allow me to view content form other players but I’ve checked that plenty of times. I’ve tried resetting all my settings to default, customizing them, and resetting my xbox. It’s really infuriating that I can’t spectate or watch film so I can go back and make clips for posting. What do I do?

Sounds like the Theater part of the install might be corrupt. It’s a little similar to how my xbone freezes whenever I try to set any Forge Glacier map to use the nighttime skybox… gets stuck generating the lighting every time for any Glacier map.

If you get time, try a reinstall. I haven’t tried a reinstall on mine yet, so I can’t confirm that it worked for my case.

Are you getting any sync errors? It usually takes about 1 to 2 minutes after you reach the spartan lobby for the theatre and req’s to load.
