    I have had multiple 360's hooked up to live on my d-link 514+ so there is no reason why your 524 couldnt.

    hey, is there anyone here who used the service.xbox.com website while sending back their xbox 360?

    how long did it take for your status to update?

    I sent off my 360 on thursday but the status is still "Waiting for Device at Service Center" yes yes I'm antsy.

    No details on the next update, but problems with xbox live during the holiday period and GTA on the verge of release, they are making sure the xbox live system is up to scratch.

    Volume control in video playback?? its called a tv remote? :p

    My status changed to "Received at Service Centre" after about two business days, so that was pretty speedy. It stayed at that status for two weeks, then changed to "Device Shipped to Customer" for another two days before i received it. Bit ridiculous really - all they had to do is fix the network, and i live literally ten minutes away from the service centre, but still had to go through the entire rigmarole of sending it through Auspost

    a mate came over recently and had a copy of R6V2... he slapped it in the xbox drive and we had a stuff around on SP.
    i popped it out and looked at the disc, it had "Promotional use only. Not for retail sale".... ooops!
    Now i have been having major issues with xbox live (2 different error codes that i had no luck finding info on within the xbox.com site). some 'blades' don't even load.
    i hadn't actually used xbox Live much before then so i'm not sure if the problem had happened early.

    this is probably only coincidence but could my problems be caused by using a "Promo Copy"?

    cheers.

    It'll be a coincidence, Live is probably just being hammered again.

    Promo copies are exactly the same game, just labeled a promos...xbox live has had some heavy loads over the past couple of weeks, hopefully they add moe servers for the GTA release.

    that's why they had downtime last week to rectify any issue that may arise (or hopefully for their sake)

    Probably less than the Halo 3 release... Xmas was the real killer, IIRC.

    Looks like my Xbox 360 cd/dvd drive has died. Won't open/close and my Weeds DVD is stuck in there. Stupid piece of shit Microsoft.

    I've barely have used the thing, and I think I'm just over my 12mth warranty.

    The "On" icon LED just flickers on and off..
