problem is... i got that update last week.
and just got another one.

microsoft really needs to stop pushing updates when you're signed on btw. just make it update next time you start up. nothings more annoying than working overnights til 4:30 in the morning, coming home, popping on netflix and trying to fall asleep, just to have the show randomly stop playing in the middle of an episode, waking you up because it gets awkwardly silent because they push an update through.

The same thing happened to me xLuigi. I got an update last week and none of my friends did. I just got kicked off live now and I'm updating again.

This is the first update i've had since the crappy dashboard overhaul. The only reason i can think of as to why you lot have had a second update is that there might of been a problem with the update last week.

Weird, I didn't get the update last week when everyone else did but I got the update this morning. Strange.

I haven't had a dashboard update since the change to the 'metro' theme.

Just got the update. Two in as many weeks now and I didn't notice anything different for the first one so I doubt it's anything cosmetic for this one.

You can always stay offline and never be bothered with them! Updates are a way of them saying, we f-ed up and we're trying to fix it...in most cases.

I received mine less than an hour ago. And it's about damn time, been waiting 1 week for it.

I had an update last week as well as this one today. It's strange.

Second update since last week just hit me too. Anyone know if it's anything substantial yet?

Same here. I just thought that it was the one that went out last week. Seems I may be wrong though.

Knowing Microsoft they've pushed out the update to everyone even though a load of people got it last week, myself included.

last week i got one and I think it added some account security or something (maybe other things) - i also got one today, but i can't see anything different. So as others stated it's maybe the same, since not everybody got it?

Amazing how a billion dollar company can't provide a change log onscreen.

QFT.

Not only that, they fail to allow members to preview "premium" content such as themes, so you're stuck doing the research via YouTube to see whether you'd like it or not. Heck, even a lot of the gamerpics can't be previewed and you are forced to either buy and see for yourself, or use dedicated websites to preview them.

Another one of those 'FAIL' moments in Xbox LIVE history.

Their updates have been pointless. There's been nothing wrong with the dashboard (which I hate since it updated last fall) but at least they rarely do it when we can't play online.

If you press the guide button and select settings- profile. At the bottom; Manage Exercise Info. In here you have the option to add your Height, Weight, Year of birth and Gender. This has been added to help improve the accuracy of the calorie counters on Kinect games.

They released an update just over a week ago but it was causing problems for gamers that use wireless steering wheels and that sorta thing (like the wheel not connecting and FF issues). Consequently they postponed the update and now I assume this is the same update but they've corrected the problems with it so if you recieved 2 this is why.

I got it this morning when I logged on, took about 2 mins both when I signed in and when it rebooted.

The update last week was only sent to a few people as a trial. The update today is a slight improvement on that previous update.

Wiki has a full list of changes for anyone interested, though someone has already posted most of that info.

it was like.... 3mb. literally took me seconds. try resetting your router. or it might be time to increase your download speeds with your isp.

Don't know if the update caused this but now when I sign in, my avatar doesn't spin and land like he should, he just twitches and then holds out his hands now.

Mine took almost 15 minutes on a 3 mb/s speed.
