    I just tried via Xbox.com and they told me to bugger off, not available in my region.

    Did the latest update brick anybody else's console? I'm getting a e203 error, console won't boot. MS site claims its a 'validation' error. I had this issue nearly every update before the windows 10 redesign, but i guess i get to spend a few hours again with a USB trying to reset the thing.

    Never had this issue and I get 1-2 new OS builds every week on my box.

    I'd contact MS support.

    I've never had this (I'm on the preview program so get more updates than most, not as many as staff tho LOL) - sounds like you've got some sort of signing error in yours that's not going away. Have you ever done a full factory reset once you'vegot it going again (I.e. Does your recovery wipe it, or does it just fix the update) - that might be worth a shot. Either way hit them up for a return though.

    Yeah, only the factory reset using the USB download gets it going again. It's probably good timing that it has come up again anyway as the warranty has nearly run out on it. Has anybody sent one away recently and know what the wait time is? At least it looks like they swap it out, rather than try and repair it.

    I got bricked. Couldn't restore with the offline update so had to factory reset.

    Thankfully I have all my installs on an external 2GB USB 3 drive!

    Picked myself up a preowned 1TB xbox one from EB and I'm quite happy with it. Being able to stream games to a pc\tv in my outdoor area on a decent summers night has worked great. Shame my upload speed is so shit so I can stream it when I go on overseas work trips :mad:

    I've read reviews etc but interested to hear from anyone who's actually done or regularly does streaming to a Intel Compute/stick device? Is it as bad as the reviews make it out to be?

    tried streaming for the first time a few weeks back - its actually better than i thought. And the fact that i can just use the same controller is a bonus.

    I can't get it to work. Might be my wireless but the latency is too high for me to play forza with.

    what wireless device you using? Can you at least see your xbox?

    for fast moving games i turn the quality down. if its something like Gem Wars it goes all the way up!
