    Well not the ones like Hulu or Netflix as they are subscription apps.

    All the latest added apps work apart from Epix, which is region locked and informs you that we're ever so sorry wee bear, but you are a big fibber, you aint here, you are there and won't let you download it. :D

    They don't work on the US account because it's just silver, but once you download them they do show up on my UK gold account and work fine.

    What's the name of the mobile app again. I'm about to leave work, so I can't hit refresh every minute. So I"ll just have to search the marketplace.

    Okay, so who knows how to force the update? :D
    I don't know if it still works, but I remember back in 2008 when NXE came out I ran the Connection Tests to force the update. I was on campus in a dorm and my roommate got the update right away, but I was still signed in and wasn't kicked off to update.

    I figured when you ran the connection test it would check for any available updates (just in a case) while polling the Xbox LIVE service status.

    Just my $0.02 :)

    I can't wait to get my hands on the update and the Xbox Companion App! :D

    My console just updated! Took no time at all. Seems like less than 2 minutes and I'm up on the new dashboard. Agreeing to new terms of use as I type.

    Update: I just updated my kids console and was paying closer attention this time. It was more like 5 minutes to update. I guess depending on your connection speed your mileage may vary.

    Updating both of my consoles now. It seems to be taking a lot longer than 2 minutes. On my main console, the update didn't trigger until I loaded a game (even though I was signed in).

    On the other console, the update began immediately after my daughter's profile signed itself in automatically.


    Still looking for the Xbox Companion app in the marketplace. No such luck thus far.

    Anyone with two consoles on the same internet connection having an issue getting both to logon to Xbox Live at the same time? I never had a problem with this before, but post dashboard update I can't get my kids signed into their Xbox Live IDs on their console. When I run the network test, it connects to the internet but tells me it can't connect to the Xbox Live service.

    Gotta fix this or I'm gonna be dead meat when the kids find out. ;)

    A friend told me his router wants to update. So perhaps either your router needs one too or maybe reset it?

    I have 3 consoles admittedly running the preview as the update was only released some 5 hours ago and they can all log in seperately. During the preview people did notice problems with strict NAT and sometimes that involved some router changes namely upnp.

    Interestingly i never got another update and i'm on the preview. Perhaps we already had the final build and they will just remove the preview release channel at some point.

    I did get the new Terms of Service prompt though.

    Hope everyone's enjoying the new dashboard. :)

    (I still prefer the old one for navigation speed)

    LOL thank you duvi, very thoughful, yes saving my pennies frantically to buy it as 3 don't have it. At least that means I can use my upgrade for a new WP later on if they get one. (Nokia?) :)

    Cheapest I can find it is 440 (Carphone Warehouse) $687 of those funny yankee dollar thangs. :D

    (Not wishing to use ebay for this purchase LOL)
    As promised. I cheated because co-workers fiddled with it before I could tell them I wanted to do a full unboxing for The Wee Bear ;(
