Xbox 360 November Dashboard Update what's in it?

Full list on the Xbox.Com page, apart from the obvious Wireless Racing Wheel and HD DVD Player support, I can't wait to mess around with:

Stream WMV video from a Windows PC running Windows Media Player 11, Zune software, or Windows Media Connect, finally streaming video!! Play video from storage devices such as USB flash drives, Xbox 360 Memory Units, etc.

Added DVD/Video skip controls, time elapsed and remaining and picture format

Improved voice chat quality in Xbox Dashboard and in-game chats

Improved look and feel in Xbox Live Marketplace and Xbox Live Arcade areas.Revamped category listings for (not a moment too soon)

Eradicating the 20 cents a gamer picture embarassment would have been a nice little touch Mr.Microsoft but hey there's always Christmas!! we can live in hope.

Update from our intrepid field reporter Deitrix, a small minority of people (according to Microsoft) may have a wee tiny problem after downloading, your 360 wont' boot up. Forums are reporting it's affecting only a small percentage of 360'ers full details from IGN... Microsoft engineers are on it, and should have a fix within 24 hours. thanks Deitrix!

Welcome! Im currently reporting from South Africa on how Sam Fisher is holding up down there...? Will give you my review of things in your Double Agent post when I make it back!!

"Sure is hot down here!" "As you can see behind me people are getting shot all the time!!"

"Luckly I have an NSA Splinter Cell Sam Fisher Cooled Tank of Guiness strapped to my back at all times here!" "I have found its the only way to go!!" "NSASCSFCTG Tank is what Sam calls it!!!"

"I have to go now the shooting is getting quite close... This has been DEITRIX reporting from Elderly Live Broadcasting in Kinshasa, South Africa!"
