Backround Downloads

I bought a couple of games recently on Games on demand, I turned on Backround downloads to download the content to my console while it is off but it does not work. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hey there ThexKingxPin.  What is it that you're trying to download that's not working for Background Downloads? :)

I think background downloads means it will download until completion then your system will automatically shut-down.  Hope this helps!

^I tend to agree. I've never been able to continue downloading stuff with the system shut down.

Background Downloads should continue if you shut off the console using the Guide button, not the power button. The center light on the ring of light will blink occasionally if background downloading is working.

 

I bought three Games on Demand during last week's sale, then shut down my console via the Guide button. The games all downloaded overnight while the console was "off".

There was a service error regarding this and was still active around the time you posted this.  If you try again now, it should work fine.

@IceStorm, Actually, it doesn't have to be the Guide that you shut your console off.  You can hit the power button and it will continue to download.  I do it all the time. :)

Background downloads happens when your console is turned off and still connected to the internet. On your console you should see the power button flash around every 30 seconds. You may have the option turned off, if not turn the console off and then turn it back on.
