Can't connect to Xbox Live Party since Feb 14 Update.

As the title suggests it won't allow me to connect to an XBL party since the update. I've even tried starting a party and no one can join on me. I've had the person that owns the party send me an invite, it thinks about it for a few seconds, the screen flickers a few times and then I get the same message. I've never had a problem joining any of these people before the update. All of my friends now have the update. Strangely enough, the only person I can join on once I get an invite is the person that downloaded the update on the same day as me. The others were only prompted to d/l the update last night.

Ok, I've done troubleshooting for 3 days now and nothing in the Xbox solutions page works.

I network tested the line - all 3 ticks.

Cleared the storage cache.

Reinstalled my modem/routers latest firmware.

Checked the privacy settings.

Restarted the Xbox after each test.

Unplugged my modem/router for 2 mins.

Hopefully another update will be released to fix these issues as I know I'm not alone.

I had this same issue for the first time last night.  My friend and I both updated on the same day last week.  The night we updated, everything worked perfectly the entire time.  

Last night when we got on, everything seemed to work fine except for anything chat related.  We couldn't join each other's party no matter which one of us started it first.  And neither of us could get private chat to work.  Playing online (BF3) and being connected to Live was working as usual.  

We both reset the consoles, routers, and modems.  Our NAT settings should not be an issue because neither of us have changed them since we got our routers.  Everything XBOX related has seemed to work flawlessly up until last night.

We reguarly party with around 5-6 on a nightly basis. Before the update I could join on everyone. Since the update I have been only able to join on 1 person. Interestingly, the 1 person I can join on, got the update the same night as I did (14th Feb). The rest of my friends got it on the 16th Feb.

I cleared the cache again and deleted the latest update. When prompted I redownloaded the update and noticed that the other night it took me around 5 minutes to download and update the console. It restarted the console 3 times before being fully installed. Todays download however only took around 1 minute to d/l and update fully. I am yet to test if it has helped or not.

Hey there Skooby! I understand you are having issues joining and hosting parties. Are you having issues joining all parties, or only with certain people? Also, you mention that one person is able to join your party, but everyone else cannot. How many other people have you tried this with? Let me know, thanks!

I was asked to make a new post by a mod so you could help me, yet this has gone to the third page and no one has responded or attempted to help me. What gives?
