i'm pissed... i was watchin netflix
I haven't gotten the actual update yet but I have the beta dash. Pretty sure I should get something that removes the preview channel.
Why can't I fucking connect to live?
Hate getting disco'd after using an app.
Still getting use to it but I really like just being able to hit A and get right into a game... BUT, I'm not sold on the new Netflix layout. I don't really like how it goes to a screen prepping for the next episode of a show while the credits are playing in a smaller window.
I called the 800 number, and got a recording saying they're aware of the connection problem.
I got the update earlier and everything was working, but now it's totally tits up. Pissing me off.
glad i'm not the only one having connection issues right now
Aw, it does that? Lame. I often like to read the cast credits.
hell, i watch a lot of shows that do funny stuff in the credits
Just "accepted" the update. I fucking hate it. There's a great big advert right in the middle of my home page where my avatar should be, whilst my "play Skyrim" square is some tiny thing to the side. All the other pages are just advertsadvertsadvertsadverts
Been running the beta for a while and I'm not sure if I like it.
The layout is not bad, but I feel that the avatars, which were a big push for them before, seem to be shoved off to the side in this new layout. Same with themes and gamer pictures.
Not sure I like the friends list this time round (which is also a way to access your avatar) Just showing a few friends then having to go into a separate list for them all. I've also had instances where it's shown a friend that was offline in favour of one that was online.
I think the tabs at the top are in the wrong order. Games should be before video.
The marketplace has some improvement but still has far to go. It's still listing avatar items under DLC.
The cloud storage is great (though you need a internet connection to access it first)
Preview Channel will be around for a bit longer as we're still testing stuff.

I Open my Xbox Live Account Continued During Play Halo Reach! I Just Start Download New Update Old Dashboard Transforms into New Dashboard it Really Awesome I Test new Dashboard Awesome it Has Social, TV, Music, Video Games and Much More. I Testing Bing on Xbox Live it Really Awesome to me I love Google and Bing Search on my Laptop.
Sadly I Can't Afford Microsoft Point and Kinect because I Didn't get a New Job Yet i like the Old Update it Very nice to user Dashboard Update first time Since I use Xbox live 2 Years Ago, Just Now new Update Dashboard, Say Good bye to Old Dashboard!
So now that this fucking shit works, I can say with total confidence it's eh. Not really any better, just different. Friends list is less friendly but I always use the guide for that. I like that the very first thing that's selected when you start up is your game, means less time at the dashboard.
Just finished downloading it. Seems alright so far.
Downloaded it a couple of hours ago - seems okay to me, no major gripes with the UI, it's fairly easy to navigate.
Too many loading screens. Not enough instant navigation between pages.
Im digging it, and I like all the new apps. Looking forward to the youtube one.
Did'nt know you can link up your paypal with Xbox live.
Gold is only 1$ a month now (for limited time) and luckily I had $2 left in my paypal.
Don't like it.
At all. Hate the adverts, hate the way all games are bunched into one (yeah I know you can apply only to arcade games or whatever), but I have 50 Arcade games (amazingly) what if I want to play Zuma? I have to go ALL the way to the right. In the old one I could just push up, and it would take me to the end of the list.
I dunno, why did they change it? To make it more Kinect friendly?
Use the bumpers to page through stuff. If you tap it a few times rapidly it'll take you to the end.
