    If I get banned, will I still be able to use Netflix's streaming service? It's probably the only thing I would miss if I couldn't get on Live, but I don't know if those with Silver memberships can use it (...if you get banned, you do just go to Silver right? Or are you banned from that too??)

    Thanks, sorry for the whole thread about one little question.

    Tip: Don't go doing something that's gonna get you banned.

    Uh, why would I do that? It's not like I love free games or anything.... [​IMG]

    My box has been flashed for months, and I play online quite a bit. I just started using Netflix today, and watching movies on the xbox is just too cool to lose. Maybe I'll buy a game or two to balance my karma out a little bit. [​IMG]

    You can even play them with another profile or being offline with this.

    is it possible to get banned if you go to the marketplace and buy XBLA games with a flashed 360, without ever playing online games?

    I'm sorry, but this question is ridiculous!! You can get banned in general for signing in to live with a flashed drive. That's it.

    I'm sorry if the question seemed stupid, but you have to know that I don't even have a 360 and I was wondering what could get you banned and what not [​IMG] thanks for the answer.

    Sounds like a very valid question to me.

    Sorry, I assumed you had a 360. How embarrasing for me...

    As far as I know, you can only get banned if a non-original game is in the drive. If you have an original in there then there is no chance of being banned. I've read that on these boards and elsewhere.. but I'm not sure.

    That's not necessarily true. There is no way to tell how they ban you. That's why most people just say that as soon as you flashed your 360, you run the risk.
