    A few days ago i was playing Dead Island on my PAL XBox (Phat Box with Jasper Board, LT+ 1.91 and the game was installed on the HardDisk, Backup-Game-Disk was in the Drive), suddenly, as a Ram-Zombie hit me, a blue short flash appeared, followed by a completely back screen and the Controller sometimes rumbles a little. After 10 Seconds everything went back to normal and i could play on.

    Today, i was playing Biohazard Revival Selection on my ASIA XBox (Slim Box without any Firmeware-Flash, the game was installed to the 250 GB HardDisk, the Original Game-Disk was in the Drive), suddenly, as i played with ADA in Chapter 2 (The Another Order) - The exactly same error appeared. After the black screen was gone, my progress was lost, i had to start at the last Checkpoint.

    What kind of strange Error is this? On 2 different Boxes, in 2 different Games... is it my Datel Wildfire 2 Controller? Is it the HDMI-Cabel? Are to many electronical devices connected to my multiple socket? Or is it the TV?

    Any Idea? :blink:

    clearly as this is on two different machines, it's not the xbox's, more likely the hdmi cable or socket on your tv.

    You're sure right. I removed some devices from the multiple socket and checked the HDMI Cabels... it didn't happend anymore until now. I guess that will fix the problem. :)
