    Damnit, really? I mean, thats cool and all but i don't have home nets.

    And it was LAST FUCKING NIGHT that i took my 360 to a buddy's place to update to NXE and reallocate my downloads to my refurb'd system (read: just got it from a RRoD repair), and i run everything via HDMI... however i have it hooked up Component due to the audio issue.

    Oh wells. I'll keep it on composite for a bit yet, and i'll get the bug worked out soon.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Personally I havent had any problems with audio through HDMI since the NXE update, I still get crystal clear 5.1, none of my friends have either.

    What?

    I don't even know what the hell HDMI is, so this update doesn't really affect me.

    HDMI is a compact audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data.

    aka it's a connection to transfer HD from your 360 to your TV.

    I'm guessing the issue was there was no audio or maybe choppy audio. I don't know. But this update is good to hear. I was planning to get a lcd with hdmi just for the 360.

    There was no audio output after installing the NXE.

    Someone posted about the bug over at the xbox forums

    Ah I think I might have been using the optical out instead of HDMI audio because I got my projector the same time as NXE, my mistake.

    People are complaining that the new update has caused their consoles to RROD.

    It seems every new update comes with reports of RROD problems. Two of my friends got RROD the same week as the NXE update.

    urgh.. RROD over a simple update? blah!
    I was surprised at how big the update was, it took ages to download and to install.
    Sorry to hear that all it does is fix some audio bug I'm not affected by.

    Yeah it happened ages ago when a update came out. Someones xbox 360 gets the RROD error when he/she is downloading/applying a patch and then they suddenly think a update makes your 360 RROD and the whole internet goes up in flames saying it's true.
