Here...



Xbox 360 Dashboard release schedule
I am happy to inform you that the highly-anticipated Xbox 360 Dashboard update will be released tomorrow morning beginning at 0200 PT (See what time this is in your time zone.) This free update contains some of your top requested features including background downloading, boot to dash and others for a total of over 125 new features and enhancements. Read more details from the press release on Xbox.com.

While the update is being released at 0200 PT not everyone will receive it immediately. It can take up to four hours for a user to be prompted to receive this update, so please be patient. There is no way to speed up the process, every Xbox 360 will receive the prompt to upgrade sometime between 0200 and 0600 (or the next time you sign in to Xbox Live.)

In addition to playing on Xbox Live, here are some things to do while you are waiting for the update to appear on your Xbox 360:
Read the Dash update story on Joystiq and Kotaku
Or you can listen to my recent podcast with Xbox PR manager BIGVIP where we go through some of the new features
Look at some new screen shots of the new features that will soon be on YOUR Xbox 360.

I just got official word too:

June 5, 2006



Xbox 360 releases over 125 new features to enhance next-generation gameplay and entertainment



Gamers ask and Xbox 360 delivers with revolutionary free upgrade for all Xbox 360 connected owners


Starting tomorrow, Xbox 360 gamers will be able to access a vigorous system-wide update creating a new pinnacle for next-generation gaming and entertainment. The Xbox 360 spring update introduces more than 125 revolutionary features and enhancements adding to Xbox 360’s sheer power, stunning high-definition graphics, rich online capabilities and innovative media offerings delivering a digital gaming and entertainment experience that simply can’t be matched.


Since the launch of Xbox 360 in November 2005, Microsoft has continuously focused on gamer and community feedback to determine further improvements and enhancements for the evolving next-generation experience, resulting in this inaugural mass update. With more than half of all Xbox 360 gamers connected online, Xbox is further catering to its fans by delivering the spring update in the way they want it. This free update will be digitally distributed over Xbox Live to all members (Xbox Live Silver and Gold) with no disc or hard drive required to take advantage of the plethora of new features. Gamers without an Xbox Live account can easily sign up for the free network by connecting their console to a broadband internet connection. Once online, downloading the update takes less than a minute and provides instant access to features including:


Xbox Live Marketplace Enhancements

· New background download manager gives gamers the ability to queue up and download six high definition items at a time including playable game demos, Xbox Live Arcade games, music videos and movie trailers while actively playing games or browsing the dashboard. As an added benefit, if gamers engage in multiplayer gameplay while downloads are in process, the new background download manager will automatically pause the download queue until the multiplayer session is complete ensuring a continuously optimal gameplay experience.

· Updated Xbox Live Marketplace menus makes it easier for players to find and store all of their gaming and entertainment content. This includes the addition of new menus for media and entertainment content as well as enhanced menus making it easier for gamers to find what’s new in each section as well as a quick view at all downloads by category.

· Full remote control features for Xbox Live Marketplace videos allow gamers to fast forward and rewind at various speeds (2X-16X) during all videos downloaded from Marketplace.


Music Player Improvements

· Custom background music now continues to play without interruption during game loads and when transitioning from game to game or disc content.

· During music play, the music playback screen now showcase the artist, song title and time remaining on the song along with a visualizer showing which song on the playlist or album is currently playing.


DVD Movie Playback Upgrades

· DVD movie bookmarking now allows gamers to pause a movie at any point, put in a game for gameplay and return to the movie at the exact point it left off.

· Improved DVD movie playback for a smoother, higher quality viewing experience, including additional VGA support.

Did you mean 480p? My TV switches to 480p when DVD's come on.

I was going to ask my Microsoft rep, but he jumped off IM. I was curious as to what this meant.

"DVD bookmark support will remember the film’s timing and location when resuming viewing"

Now that I like.

Any chance MS will eventually allow for WMV files to be played by the 360 w/o having to stream? Would be nice to just plop a WMV HD disc into the 360.

Hopefully the washed out colors of the dvd playback is removed and improved. I hope that's what that improved playback means.

sounds very much to me like with this update the 360 will upconvert dvd movies to 720p (or better), provided you are using the vga connection...

DVD native resolution is 480p. That has to be what it means. It is illegal, according to the DMCA, to upconvert DVD to HD signals unless it's over HDCP, such as DVI or HDMI.

DVD native, as I understand, is 480i and acheived by a 3:2 pulldown. Progressive scan players and sets just reverse the 3:2 pulldown.

Perhaps there is a loophole when using the VGA connection. After all computers (many of which use VGA connections) upconvert DVD to higher resolutions.

Current Equipment:
Panasonic TC-P42G25
Logitech Z680 5.1
Xbox 360
PS3
Gaming PC (Core i7 2600, GeForce 670, 16 GB RAM)

Thats right. VGA is grand fathered with resolutions commonly implemented - atleast in AACS. I guess similar situation exists in DVD upconvert ...

Well this is confusing as hell now. I found this link that agrees with what rdank says, which would be why Frank said 480i:

http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=301032


But then in that thread was a link to a CNet article that said the native format for DVD was 480p:
http://www.cnet.com/4520-7874_1-5107912-1.html

"480i - 480 interlaced; form of standard-definition digital television (SDTV) that approximates the quality of analog television but not considered high-definition television (HDTV). Even though the native resolution of DVDs is 480p, they are viewed at 480i on an NTSC analog television."

Which one is correct?

DVDs are encoded in 480i. This is why the quality of a DVD player's deinterlacer is important for quality playback on a progressive display.

DVD is 480i native (on the disc) . It is possible that we will now get upconversion over VGA to whatever resolution VGA out is set at ... ??? Certainly a welcome feature if true .

Ok , well I will be up at 2am Pacific time anyway so I will log on and see what the deal is .

So are yall saying the 360 does not output in progressive?

* Improved Marketplace storage device selector Does this mean if you have a portable hard drive plugged in, you can save downloads onto it from the market place?

And did someone say something about washed out colors on the 360 DVD playback? I never heard anything about this...

For DVDs? We said nothing of the sort. We said that all DVDs are encoded in 480i. Many DVD players, like the 360, deinterlace the 480i DVD image and output a 480p signal.

Too bad they didn't fix the issue with games having washed out colors when using a VGA adaptor - it would be nice to play games near my monitor's native resolution of 1366x768.
