Thank you! I've been losing my mind for the last two days trying to figure out what was causing this.

What's "Start and dismiss?" I've not seen that before. 

That explains that black square on my dash and when I tried watching a Blu-ray movie. Didn't connect it to the party chat overlay. A reboot got rid of it. I'll try toggling it off if I see it again.

Great to see the squares issue addressed. I was stressing it was my Xbox going on the fritz. :)

So pissed that ive been in the program since its launch and am active on the app etc yet don't get an invite to alpha. Mate who **** around in the app to get points, who doesn't report errors/bugs etc and is lower level then me gets invited to alpha start of the year. Makes perfect sense.

When is beta wave getting the gamer pic update & 1705? It's been a week already. It usually doesn't take this long.

Estimated time for  the rest of the rings?
