The message may come a couple of hours after updating to 1409. I updated around 7pm but saw that I received the message at 1025Pm this morning.
i found out about the media player because of an xbox live message saying to try it out. downloaded it, but got that error message when launching. that's when you guys told me to update to 1409.

Then I don't know why my 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive didn't work. Do the drives needed to be formatted a certain way? My USB drives have typically been formatted with NTFS.

Same here and the 6 hour window will ultimately save me money.

There are MANY games sitting on my shelve, great games, that I started and simply didn't get into or couldn't commit to playing for a variety of reasons. In retrospect, I should have traded them in and never bought them in the first place. Skyrim, Mass Effect, GTA, just to name a few. No doubt, top notch, great games but a complete time suck.

The whole concept of getting access to the complete game (not just a carved out demo) and being able to try before you buy is perfect for me.

Yes. I got it last week or this past weekend. Not sure exactly but I didn't try connecting the flash drive until I had that version.

I used a 32GB USB3.0 drive just to test, and it worked for me.

Did your drive already have some media files on it?

try out a wmv or mov file. Then connect it to your rear USB3 port. Mine wouldn't recognize my USB drive with the side port. Also my USB thumb drive is super old, so it doesn't have to be USB3 or in any way shape newer tech.

So for those that have used the ESPN app, does it actually provide ESPN content or does it only do the same thing that the watchESPN website (ESPN3) does?

Assuming I have a cable sub and can log-in and authenticate, would this be a good reasonable safe conclusion that I could watch a game scheduled for ESPN1 on it?

Oh I know. I still tested it though just to make sure.


But yeah, no problems with MP4 which is fully supported. Worked fine on my 32GB drive as I was saying before.

ESPN app is the same and does the same thing in all devices.
