While the 360 plays most encoded media, there is an occasional file that it won't play.
I don't keep my 360 connected to the internet as i have no reason to.
I am still using what my friends tell me is the old, better dash board. I think it is two versions ago.
I am just curious as to firmware and updates. Will any of this add more viewable formats for my media?
Is firmware included in the normal Microsoft updates?
Is firmware on a 360 only for the dvd rom and considered hacking/piracy and get your 360 banned?
Is it more risky to use on a 360 than a BD player, tv or computer hardware?
Here is a link that i found that got me curious about the firmware, as i always update it for my computer hardware.
