For all you gamers currently complaining to Microsoft, wondering where the update is you may be in for a shock. Eurogamer has revealed that the latest update should start to appear on the 360 console from 10am (UK Time) onwards today.
Well it has been up sometime now.
What happened to the DivX support? I was under the impression that this was in the update... I'm so fukcin pissed man...
Yep, even i was surprised. WTF man. Now even with orb i'm unable to see any videos.
do you mean no avi's cos if it is i am gonna be so PISSED i couldn't care about the other pesh included i was really lookin forward to a media center console
Is the HD DVD audio fix in the update? My 360 is back with MS at the moment so I cant check myself.
That's a bit sh1t about the lack of DivX support... if MS want the 360 to be a media hub then they have to allow the most common file types!
Btw, isnt this article wrong? It was posted an hour ago but the update has been live for about 2hrs now.
no offense but this update sucks ass. I mean come on I thought there was mpeg support and my stuff won't stream, and DivX haha yeah right. That wasn't working either. So all we get is a new marketplace blade, and some freaking chat. LAMERS
I want a browser and something that at least gives the appearance of a community feel to LIVE like HOME. They have LIVE SPACES, add that and make it Xbox Spaces or something and it will work with the ohh what's that now...oh yeah a browser.
How to add friends in the 36 msn chat? ,,,, i cant find the ADD buton..
Or isit so lame that you have to ADD your friends thrue the COMP msn and then you only can see them on the 360? ,, if that is the case it,s sooooo lame... and where the hell is the DIV/ x supp? ...
Is this nott the " hole " uppddate?....
This update adds virtually nothing that I will use, or needed! To me the Forza demo would have been a better download.
no divx? wtf well than yes this is a worthless update!
ive been waiting for this f00king update for ages due to having my whole home mediacentered up with 4 xbox's and a media centre in the front room... Transcode is shate on Vista, and this was what i was wanting, they are f00king pricks, sick of microsoft.. judging by this update, i think they have a hidden code to detect firmware/backups and will ban later on... because theres nothing here that would have taken ages.. DIVX SUPPORT NOW.
When you have the PS3 you can go to as an alternative?? (j/k)
Seriously though, why complain over something that was done for FREE and ADDS to your user experieance?
"free" that must be a joke.
Still have to buy a console, nothing is free. I'm not bashing trust me I'm a big 360 fan, But I also know nothing is free not even water.
...my only complaint is that the little keyboard doohickey isn't for sale yet. :)
Free is right! This update would occur whether you're using gold or silver.
All they promised was MPEG4 Basic profile and H.264.
The formats procduced by Cellphones and digital cameras.
Shoulda read last month's articles listing the changes and the level of support for the new formats.
As is, the single most important (as in, money-generating) change wasn't pre-announced: the ability to force a boot straight to the Media Center interface instead of the dashboard.
This is directed at the Home Theater Custom shops that have been adopting MCE and 360-as-extender for their high-end customers, much as the 360 Elite is.
They also fixed the aspect-ratio detection of the local video player and now anamorphic 1080p content plays properly.
MSN Messenger worked perfect for me; it already had my account name so all it asked for was the password and instantly imported my buddy list.
The VGA support now has *three* color saturation settings; standard (the old setting), intermediate, and enhanced.
There's a lot more in there.
Just not DiVX support.
But then, they never promised it.
Rumor-mongering leads to disappointment yet again.
Of course, there is still the upcoming *fall* update. >;-)
They wont put divx support bc its the main codec used for pirated movies, it would make sense.
So WhyTF is the third party software not working for streaming? Anybody using tversity or orb can confirm this? Orb is now not displaying vid files.
