Background downloads not working

The xbox 360 background downloads feature isn't working for me.

I know that it used to work for me but since the latest update it doesn't work.

I'll start downloading something , turn off the xbox and it shuts off completely after 3 seconds.

It used to flash and keep downloading until the download was finished but now it just turns itself off and doesn't download anything.

Its a real pain.

I have to keep my 360 fully turned on now when downloading anything wasting electricity.

My xbox 360 is connected to the internet via wi fi now whereas it was wired in the past but it still should work.

Can anyone help me get the background downloads working the way they're supposed to over wifi.

Hi Quinn

When you turn on your xbox next do the following...

1. Go to the settings tab

2. Press System then console settings

3. Go to startup and shutdown

4. Enable download while console is off.

That should solve your issue of background downloading. :)

I've only been gaming on my pc recently but anyway that's what I was doing originally and it didn't work.

I had download while console is off set enabled and it just wouldn't continue downloading when my console was turned off.

It would just turn itself off after about 3 seconds.

I gave up on it anyway because I've nothing else to download on it anyway.

Hey there Quinn! That's definitely odd that it kept turning off for you. I can certainly understand if you'd rather not bother troubleshooting it; but if you'd like to troubleshoot, can you tell us what you were trying to download that wouldn't keep the console downloading? Was it one specific thing or more than one thing?

Like I said, if you'd like to troubleshoot just hit us back and we'll work with you from there. If not, Game On and have a good one! ^_^

@Tarrier Just to keep things organized, please go ahead and make a new thread detailing the issue and all the steps you've tried so far. That's just so we can give you the attention you deserve and not let it get jumbled up with anyone else.
