    hayush,

    Recently I got a new XBOX360 slim with that Halo limited edition 320GB harddrive, and I have no experience in all this XBOX world..

    Now my questions are:

    Can I watch movies with subtitles (unattached to the vid) using the XBOX's movie player / Windows Media Center/ other available program?

    also, everytime I turn on the console, and everytime I'm trying to play files or go online, I get the "Update Required" kind of message, saying I have to update my console in order to do so, but will I be able to hack the console after that update?

    Edited: I've seen that there's an option to connect the xbox wireless controller to pc, using some adapter.. Is this adapter fine or should I buy original one?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/380650718844?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

    I literally have no idea in all this XBOX stuff... btw any additional information about this console will be very welcome.. Thanks :)

    *by hacking I mean to get the option to play burned discs.. maybe hacking here means different thing.. idk

    Mediacenter....
    I honestly don't know.
    Never tried it but feel free to do, otherwise get a film that has the subs already in it.

    Yes, just update it to 16203 and get someone specialized in hacking to retrieve your DVD key.
    I suggest getting an Xkey btw.
    It's a little more expensive but it's well worth it.

    Keep on updating.
    Since it's stock, you can do what ever you want.
    DVD keys don't change, nor does the hardware.
    So you can retrieve it at any given moment.
