View Full Version : Use the Bing background as a dashboard theme?

It would be really cool if you could use the Bing background as your dashboard theme, and it would change randomly after a while.
When I'm not using my Xbox and/or I'm just leaving it for a while I like to open the Bing tab and just leave it there because the background pictures look really cool. It would be great to have an option to use them as a theme.

Does anyone agree? Or is there a way already to do so?

I don't think I've ever seen a Bing background. I only have 5-6...holidays, baseball, USMC and a few games...that I change every so often.

the bing background is always on your dash. if you scroll all the way to the left, your background changes when you are on the bing section. it is a pretty cool idea, actually. the photos i have seen have always had me second glancing when i accidentally scrolled to far and ended up on bing.

@OP, i dont think you can have it as a perma-background, but the idea is good. maybe if you could have any pictures that you wanted, to rotate every so often or something, that would be a cool idea.

I've been wishing this for a while, too. There have been a few pictures they've had up that I would have loved to use at my background.

Yeah that would be a good idea, some of the images they have up there are just amazing and would look great as a background on the dash. Each time the image changed on the Bing screen so would you background, would make things a little more interesting when you turned your Xbox on.

For now though I shall stick to my Jessie J background. :)

I thought the same thing! Pretty sick pictures!! Either as a background or changing screensaver!

Can you set / create screen savers???

I don't think any of my themes look as good as they did since they updated the dashboard. :(

It would be pretty cool. Bing and google is all I use on PC and the images Bing use sometimes are pretty astonishing and I always learn a few new facts everyday. ;)

Those are some really pretty Bing images, but they'll never surpass the power of Deathsmiles.
You can still change the wallpaper to stuff that's similar, but with the current dashboard layout there's no point.

Oh I do miss those sexy blades...even if it was my sister's console.

This is usually the first argument I make when saying the PS3 XMB is better since they don't clutter it with ads and boxes. That and dynamic themes are beautiful.

Nice idea, I really like the Bing backgrounds.

I just put backgrounds on a usb and select that device and assign as a dashboard background. Nothing like turning on your Xbox and there is a porno picture in the background. Some may say FTW. I just say yaaaaaa.

I prefer to play... :)

I actually think that's a great idea.Not to long ago there was a picture of the ocean that had me sitting at the bing search tab just admiring the way the waves looked.

Would love to have them as my theme,even though ads and the new xbox home layout cover everything.

Man oh man. Ever since NXE when they added premium themes, I've just been using the "Night" theme. It's the only one that I have even liked out of all Premium themes I've seen.
