Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've had my Xbox 360 for about a year now. I've been loving it, especially the XBLA stuff. It also came in handy when my brother got a Netflix account and was able to take advantage of their stuff via my Xbox.
About 2 weeks ago he said he was having trouble with the Netflix thing -- it'd just sit there at the "determining your video quality" screen, and in a few minutes a progress bar would appear, followed by an agonizing stop-resume-stop-resume of whatever he was watching. Yesterday I decided to look into it and just couldn't figure it out. It looks like the total connection speed has dropped dramatically. I started downloading the Ninja Blade demo as a test about 12 minutes ago, and it's only downloaded 5% so far (about 25 MB). As far as I can tell, there is no obvious reason for this speed drop.
Here's my setup and what I've done so far:
I use the official wireless adapter.
I tested my connection speed on my PC and got about 5500kbps down, 430kbps up.
Cleared the cache using the Y X X LB RB X X code.
Power cycled the wireless router.
Ran the network test in the 360's system settings and no issues came up -- full strength connection.
Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to hook the system up to a wired internet connection at the moment, which I think would help me determine if this was an issue with the wireless adapter.
That being said, does anyone have any ideas on how I could fix it? I'm hoping someone else has had a similar problem before.
