I started having random problems connecting to Xbox Marketplace on September 28 evening. As soon as I sign in a message pops up, stating that "some Xbox Live content is temporarily unavailable... content will automatically appear when it's available... Status Code 8b010010". Basically my dashboard would not display any "tabs" with online content e.g: all Marketplaces, Spotlight etc.
The next morning (EST) Sep. 29th the same problem persisted. In the afternoon, the tabs for Live content appeared, but I still couldn't access the actual Marketplace or Browse. However it was possible to watch promotional videos or download content from promotional "Icons". For example I downloaded the promoted FIFA 12 demo without problem. Another observation: a Demo of Battlefield 3, which was promoted on September 29th for other users, wasn't there for me. On September 30th morning all of the content became available, BF3 Beta appeared on the Spotlight etc. In the evening the original problem returned - none of the xbox live content is available. Still there....
During the whole time Multiplayer and messenger options were available - I can play and chat without problem. Also I can Queue up already downloaded content through my PC and it would download on my console. Is there a problem with my ISP or my Xbox. Account?
Here are the specifics of my connection:
Location: Washington DC
ISP and connection type: Comcast, cable
Same problem when connected to Router (D-Link DIR 601) or directly to Modem (D-Link DCM 202)
Required Ports open
Xbox current IP address added to DMZ
Tried clearing System Cache and Marketplace System Info
Live connection displays no issues
Error Status Code for XBL connection:
If you could help me fix the situation I would appreciate that. Thanks!
