Xbox LIVE Operations Blog issues comment related to the problems with the latest Dashboard update.
is during the first few hours I wasn't able to download the new netflix interface, but this evening it worked and everything is working fine so far.
I haven't had any problems what so ever, I guess I'm a lucky one.
I downloaded at 8am and no problems what so ever! Still didn't test out the voice chat yet, but the video and sound on Netflix seems better. Overall, I like the redesign. Took a lil bit to get used to, but well worth the effort!
I was in the beta and don't remember even seeing a download screen for the final update. I did get the T&C page though.
seem to be very slow updating (took about 5 mins) other that it worked great. not sure about the new look tho
I havent really noticed any major issues either, although voice chat in part chat is a little weird. These sorts of things usually get fixed fairly quickly by MS support
i had the same problem with netflix. took a few times before it would work. but i've also experience a complete lock up on the dashboard, and another one while in game. there's def some issues. my guess is there will be a patch
EDIT: Say cheese!
I wish they would change the super bright white, play a dark game at night and press the Guide button and you will understand why many people are complaining about the bright white
zune music is very slow.
no problems for me so far.
it only took me thirty seconds to install and the update is a total redesign. Kudos to ms for making there interface quick and efficient and feels effortless. A redesign like this on some systems would take hours.
Lol totally not a fanboy comment coming from a "neutral" gamer that owns both consoles, so i guess your post in the 44 million 360's sold vs the ps3's 42 million sales debate central was a huge load of bs. Thats why you stealth fanboys are worse than most fanboys, at least they are honest about there prejudices, better than a two faced one like you. Good because what i have seen from the 360 dashboard it looked overbloated with too much unnecessary eye candy and too many pages to scroll through to get to one specific thing. But maybe thats just because i like a more simplified and streamlined design than one with a ton of fluff, like the xmb. Enjoy the new dashboard people.
"Kudos to ms for making there interface quick and efficient and feels effortless. A redesign like this on some systems would take hours." Yes. It's so well done they needed to issue a statement on the contrary.
Totally worth $60/year I presume?
correctly. nice pants.
The biggest problem this new dash has is most certainly how harshly white the blade pop ups are.Why are MS being such dicks and not allowing us at the very least an option to alter slightly this harshness to that of a different shade or colour Right now i'm just wishing MS all the worst luck for this bs
The new dashboard looks like windows safe mode. Starting with how the ring of light menu looks, it seems as if they just didn't care about the design and or needed one that old people could use. The text looks a little more blurry. Where are some curves? Everything is straight line and looks old. Although this gastly look is terrible I can get around it, but the party chat needs to be fixed. It sounds like everyone is talking through a road cone. The avatar system is a lot better now and everything does seem to load faster. As for espn why is it so bad. I don't care for games I've already seen and already know results to. There are only sportscenter highlights and not a live stream of one or an espn channel. The quality of the video is bad and what games they have coming on that are live are games no one wants to watch.
My slow loading problems cleared up. It was all probably all the people updating. Should he 100 by Thursday.
yeah the white is just a little to white, TONE IT DOWN MS
i can't believe people are actually complaining because it has a significant amount of white in the design...it isn't even a 100% white I don't mind the white, I enjoy not having to strain to read text you act like it is so terrible to have dark text over white but there is a reason it is done...it is easy to read simply look 90% of professional web sites...or you know printed paper
The only thing I noticed is that Facebook and Twitter still use the old interface/icons etc. but maybe they just haven't updated those apps yet.
i ran into a couple problems with netflix and espen hanging upon download. That was resolved with the "exit the download try again" attempt. I did run into the problem of trying to update Gears of War when i went and put it in to play with a friend online. it took ten tries. but all in all everything is working for now.
i haven't seen any problems with the new dash, other than it looking more like the wii with every update, how does that go down with the cod halo crowd anyway? but why the frakk does it still takes ages for your game list to come up?
