    Let me see if I understand this........Can a console be banned just for being modded and going onto Xbox Live (to update dashboard, shop, etc..) OR do consoles only get banned if your playing a backup/burnt disc online?

    Yes violating any of the terms of service can result in being banned.

    Yes I realize what the TOS says, but what they say and what they do can be two different things sometimes.

    If they detect (and they will) that you have a modified firmware or so, thus violating TOS, they will ban you.

    I always see "And they will" or "you WILL be banned" in things talking about xbox hacking, it is really easy to not get banned if you arent stupid

    OP asked "can" a wii be banned simply by going online. Yes it certain'y "can" be banned going online with custom firmware. Is this likely to happen, probably not if you follow the easy directions given by the creators. Such as flashing to stock then updating then reflashing to CF.

    Ignoring safety precautions for modded consoles can easily get you banned.

    On the 360 there are at least 2 types of bans.
    Console ban (usually from a jTAG / modded drive)
    Profile ban (misbehaving on XBL)

    The first one is irreversible, meaning you can never connect to XBL again with that console.
    A profile ban is usually lifted after several days / weeks.
