Mine is downloading the update as I type :D

#53 Posted by Rawrz (590 posts) -

Dont really mind a delay since well I dont turn on my Xbox to check out a dashboard. I turn it on to play games and I can still do that so meh. It can roll out whenever.

...Wrong thread?

#59 Posted by hwy_61 (922 posts) -

I don't see a YouTube app. Didn't they say YouTube was gonna be in the update? Ahhh for fucks sake.

@hwy_61: Not everything is gonna be available initially. They do have Daily Motion to serve your internet video needs.

It's still not going up for me. I am le sad :(

#63 Posted by mostman (248 posts) -

Got it. Going to take a while to get used to the new Netflix interface. It's better for sure - but very different. The search is awesome. I'm going to love it once they add more content. I did the obvious "star trek" search and was happy to see Netflix thrown in with the rest, unlike earlier reports indicated. Selecting an episode launched Netflx and started the episode. Awesome.

Ah, so it WILL be available. Thanks duder.

#65 Posted by Creamypies (4066 posts) -

Still nothing for me.

#66 Edited by StrainedEyes (1324 posts) -

I updated mine. The new Netflix app is needlessly more complicated, especially for TV shows.

#67 Posted by mostman (248 posts) -
@Geo7877 Agreed. The layout leaves a lot to be desired. The new functionality is nice though. Plus the tie in to the system search is great.
#68 Posted by Djstyles92 (952 posts) -

Still no update for me

#69 Posted by JasonR86 (9707 posts) -

No update here. Fuckers.

Online
#70 Posted by RawknRo11a (564 posts) -

where are the people who ARE getting the update located at? I'm in North Florida and no update here :(

#71 Posted by mostman (248 posts) -

Northeast here. Mine was live about 2 hours ago.

#72 Posted by joeq1159 (111 posts) -

I'm actually still not getting it. What gives ? I just want to see how the cloud stuff is going to work.

#73 Posted by MrOldboy (869 posts) -

Huh, sort of dont care at all about another dash update.

#74 Posted by mekon (285 posts) -

@sofacitysweetheart: And as usual your post is full of poo. The guys are doing their jobs, you just wail and moan.

#75 Posted by briangodsoe (487 posts) -

Nothing here yet. I'll probably get it tomorrow so no biggie.

#76 Posted by sofakingcool (355 posts) -

I still am not getting a prompt to update the dashboard as of 7pm pacific. Also where the hell is Youtube as promised?

#77 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Any Canadians have this yet? Still unavailable for myself, living in southern ontario.

#78 Posted by mostman (248 posts) -

I find myself really wanting that Holiday premium theme. Did Brad say where it could be found?

@FinalDasa: Imagine that you are each person along the chain. Somebody has to notice that it isn't working right, then they have to double-check so that they don't set off any false alarms. Then they have to tell somebody else who has to see for themselves. Then they have to go around to everybody involved and make sure it isn't some small problem that can be fixed instantly. Then they have to talk to the guy in charge of the whole operation who needs to go through the same process. Then he calls somebody else who calls Major Nelson. Then HE has to finish eating or whatever he was doing at the time, call up the head of department to get the relevant information, run his xbox at the same time so that he can confirm that it's not working, contact some other random people that need to know about this, call the PR department to make sure that he is cleared to talk and ONLY THEN can he consider pulling out his phone and tweeting a very carefully worded notice to everyone.

2 hours is probably some kind of record for this process.

This.

UPDATE: The new dashboard is rolling out now. Go nuts!

 
Fuck you, Patrick. I did not need that song stuck in my head. Fuck you. Fuuuuck. Youuuuu. Gaaaah.

@mekon: No. YOU'RE the coolest person on the Internet, random Internet person :)

#82 Posted by big_jon (5728 posts) -

@david3cm: Nope, I'm in BC.

#83 Edited by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Is this officially out? 
 
EDIT: It looks like I can't connect to Xbox Live. I assume the servers are swamped. 
 
EDIT 2: Okay, it's telling me a new update is available, but it's unable to pull it. Swamped servers, oh joy.

Yeah, I just downloaded it and couldn't connect to Live either. Restarting my Xbox fixed it.

EDIT: Never mind, it said I connected but apparently I'm not...

#85 Posted by Dagbiker (6976 posts) -

"You cant download it yet, ill update later.

He's letting people know that the update hasn't gone live. It's standard reporting and informing people of a situation. 
 
Ooh yay! Downloading now.

Agreed, to an extent, BUT I like that it starts playing the most recent episode i'm on when I click a TV show and when you get to the end, it pops up an option to go straight to the next episode. Once I get used to the rest, I think I'll like it, but I've never been a fan of Netflix's layout for TV series. I would personally love a Play All option or Continuous Play option of some kind.

#88 Posted by bigdc666 (52 posts) -

Bricked my system!!!

#89 Posted by SkullcrusherMountain (954 posts) -

Was in the beta program, but now can't connect to live. Was planning on playing some mw3. Now how am I going to know how much of a whore my mother is? :(

Seriously?

Live won't let me on and won't let me download it.

#91 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

OK I got this working. It looks pretty shitty, but I set my beacon to 1 vs. 100 so I guess I'm happy.

#92 Posted by mekon (285 posts) -

@sofacitysweetheart: I try :)

"It’s unclear what’s caused the hiccup..."

So what's to report, GB?

Here, have a pageview.

This is why game journalism isn't taken seriously (posting non stories, sensationalism, brand loyalty.. ect), but I digress.

Are you two just trying to act stupid?

The news was that a rep for Microsoft said is wouldn't be out on time. You know so that people who were expecting the update knew what was going on.

#94 Posted by csl316 (8675 posts) -

Hmm, now I can't connect to Live?  boo.

#95 Posted by Vao (328 posts) -

so the updates are rolling out, finally got everything updated and all, loaded up netflix and found out there's no more "watch with party" system anymore. :(

#96 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Holy shit. They added in a "history" tab. Now you can see everything you've ever downloaded. Shocking!

#97 Posted by Barrock (3533 posts) -

I got disconnected to Live and can't connect.

#98 Posted by ffdthree (200 posts) -

I downloaded the new dashboard, but now it refuses to connect me to Xbox live! all my other connections are fine. Just the Xbox live portion isn't working. is this just me? What the heck?

#99 Posted by clubsandwich (3795 posts) -

starting to download just now.

#100 Posted by Mesoian (1574 posts) -

Try restarting and running a live diagnostic. When I did that, the update started.

It looks funky. I was hoping htey had gotten rid of that ugly grey fox at the bottom of the screen so my backgrounds showed better.
