Default New 360 Dashboard Update = Awesome!

What do you make of the latest 360 update?

I've just been playing Xvids and they look absolutely sweet as, very little pixelation.... if any, and it acts in the same way as it would Music. You can simply point it in the direction of the videos on your pc.

The dash itself is so much snappier aswell, much much faster. Use to be very sluggish comparing to this.

Very happy.... nice one Microsoft.

Not impressed, they lied about extending the IPTV service to Canada with this update. And now for some reason my wireless connection on it doesn't work after testing out the video stuff...

tinker time...

ya..it's just being retarded and keeps forgetting the encryption key. Working fine now.

I think the IPTV roll out is on the 11th December or something.

nothing really new. These annually updates should have a crap load of things not just a couple new features. I quess it's cool now since I don't have to use transcode 360 to play my xvid files anymore.

It is awesome... now going from the PS3 to 360 isn't a jump because Microsoft used the XMB layout... sweetness.

When you try and play / stream an Xvid video from the dashboard (not Media Centre Extender) it should prompt you to download a free optional update, this adds Xvid support.

They didn't promise the video market place stuff would be part of this update, they did however say it would be this year (and they are rapidly running out of time). Yes, I want the Canadian Video Marketplace too!!

The changelog for the update http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=103429

Faster navigation is one of the changes.
