I can't find any information on the changes, but a new dashboard update is being rolled out, in the UK at least. It takes the dashboard version up to 2.0.14717.0.

What's the video problem? My Hulu and Netflix are garbage on the 360 - they constantly buffer. Is that going to be fixed or is that a internet speed issue?

I can't actually play Neftlix content due to some ridiculous HDCP error. I can't even play DVD's anymore due to the same issue. If this fixes that I will be over the moon.

Seriously. The clear focus on being Kinect-friendly has resulted in a UI that is truly horrid for the majority of 360 owners. Well done, MS.

Could someone with the update run this image: http://i.imgur.com/G52BB.png
on their Xbox and report if it looks like this:

http://images.eurogamer.net/2011/art..._Sharpness.png

or like this

http://images.eurogamer.net/2011/art..._Sharpness.png

on a 1080p tv obviously.

I hope it'll fix the vid probs. I have to set the black levels to ultra-dark on my tv and even then they're bright as hell and the picture just looks crap overall.

It's really that bad? Then again, I just use my 360 to play games. I haven't really had any problems with the UI

Really. Fuck. Is there maybe a setting in the options menu that you need to select.

Of course. They're not degrading Netflix, they're just "adding value" to Zune videos.

There isn't a setting in the menus. Everything was perfect before the "Metro interface". MS said they were aware of this and working on a patch... This patch did NOT fix anything.

Then what the fuck have they been working on. Surely this would be a small change to a couple of lines of code.
