Recently, a brand new update was released for the Xbox 360 system and while some are enjoying the new update, others are having issues.
Finally got it working after 5 tries...
Just downloaded it. Looks better. I hope it'll run better.
I cant even get online. Hoping they fix it soon. EDIT: 10 min later, it allowed me to connect. Downloading the update now.
@ Criminal It's terribly slow. More style than substance like all the dashboard updates. They make finding content more cumbersome and it's never very intuitive to use.
@StanLee You might want to get your xbox checked. I just downloaded the update and it is incredibly more faster. The whole dashboard feels smoother, especially when you bring up the guide in the game.
@stanlee yeah something is def wrong with your xbox, it is blazing fast for me. and fyi explore it a bit more, finding content could be easier now. also the dashboards have gotten significatnly better with each version, i think somebody is just trolling......
try signing into the xbox.com website with your credentials. see if you can send messages or see friends online and then try again on your console. worked for me.
seeing as this was posted 19 hours ago it is clear that the issue was overload on their servers. Trying to feed millions of users the new dash update was a bit of a strain. ast forward to today and things are nice andd smooth. be fair, if you are in an area that is till experiencing issues then please be patient. 50+ million is allot to handle in a 24hr period. i got up at 5:30 am and updated my 360 in only a few minutes and things were good to go as opposed to last night when I updated the kids 360. Even the zune marketplace wasnt working right then but this morning it was a ok.
I had two updates to download, got the new dashboard, but won't connect to XBL at all. Did pretty much everything troubleshooting told me to and still nothing. Sucks, I just got Child of Eden tonight too
same thing happened to me, i just got on LIVE though. had to sign-in to xbox.com with my credentials and then that worked and was able to send messages via the website so i turned on my xbox and it connected. magic
Yeah, I ended up going through xbox.com support and had to resign the User Agreement and five minutes later everything was up and running.
If you have kinnect make sure its on before you get the update i got an error turned on kinnect and all was sweet.
funny, mine dl'ed in 5 mins and worked perfectly since.
on off on off
After the update, my 360 wouldn't connect to live. I opted for the common sense approach and power failed it so it would reset itself. Works just fine now.
I couldn't get online. Tried 10 minutes later. Got online. Then I got an error before the update. Now I can't get online. I want to watch Netflix!
Recover your gamertag, and accept new T.O.S. problem solved.
cant get onto live to recover it :/
been adding the apps, watched espn, have had no issue with sinc downloading it.
I played this when I finally got the update to finish downloading...
Everything is fixed for me now
It's normal that some people will have issues with the update. The same thing happens to the PS3 as well. So it's normal if you have problems. XperiaRay
You are 100% correct. It's a reasonable, understandable, truth that is based off common sense. But somehow it doesn't become a huge media spectacle for one console. When it comes to the other though...that's a whole 'nother story.
True what I hate about gaming journalism is how bias the authors can be. Many times I want to read articles that provide good information. But sadly most of what the press produces are doom articles and sales predictions. XperiaRay
nothing wrong with it another ps3 fanboy post
Certainly not a fanboy, yet I had tons of problems yesterday. I kept getting signed out of XBL after the update. Then once I couldn't sign in at all after restarting my console. I waited about 45 minutes tried again and it worked.
Yeah, it was a slow download (they must have been slammed hard)... I really like it. They do a good job the the 360's UI.
Really?! Do you really thing that people having issues haven't visited the Xbox.com Status page that their Xbox tells them too (when it can't connect). That page was literally still open from last night, but everything worked itself out now. Also; To Complainers; please note not all the features have been implemented yet, there's a significant amount being added next week. (we don't even had the Media tab yet)
I agree. Everything is working fine now. It was only the night they rolled out the update and even then I'm sure it only lasted a few hours.
So all the premium themes we purchased are now pretty much worthless, with this gray area, that you can't change taking up half the screen. They should stop offering themes for purchase if they are going to render half of it non-viewable and give partial refunds for all the themes we have purchased. I would not have bought these if I couldn't see them.
The gray area has been there since NXE. I hate it too, though. They need an option to turn it off if you want.
Running good. Looks good. Just need a lounge... Good screen saver...
Go to test connection, if that dosent work unplug router and try again. Worked for me.
Seriously, how does this get a pass as an article. Lazy journalism at it's finest. Great bear-bones information there.
i got it, downloaded fast, got on live. not one problem
How did this get approved, it didn't answer why, it just state that there was various problems.
Anyone figure out how to change THEMES??
d/l and installed at 1am this morning. Not a single issue so far, kinect works better and it gives you more ways to get where you want to go. Can't wait to see this with the next XBOX... LLAP Microsoft.
i cant wait for YOUTUBE WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The new Xbox update is so BA! Its a Man Dime
As most know there was a service alert that stated people would be having issues getting onto LIVE during this update. As was what happened to the majority of people. Myself included. Had to reset my Xbox a few times and do a couple of test internet connection but all worked out in the long run. I am looking forward to the media area getting updated but wondering how much of that I will have access to? I got the Today news but am wanting back the other news channels they had before which I don't see on the list of coming soon. Today show really has crappy news reporting. I am not sure why they don't drop the feature box down more into the grey area so that you can see the theme better? Also you would think they could have a reduced setting where you could minimize function to reduce size? Hoping the next dashboard has an application that lets me drop and place windows into areas to my choosing. Commercially that would be difficult for them but they could leave a little non-controlled area for their small ad space as needed. When I update my daughters Xbox and let her mess with it... then I will learn just how intuitive and easy to locate items really is. Kids let you know without the worry of them always wanting things the way it was.
Update Is FANTASTIC If you are effected there are 2 things that have effected people, if its slow or not letting you back on Live 1. Servers were overloaded as to be expected, seems to have worked itself out. 2. TOS -go to xbox.com sign in & accept the terms of service
