I live in Romania and I got an Xbox 360 Slim a year ago. Recently I bought Kinect Sports Season 2 dvd and had some trouble using the voice commands.So, I installed the latest update - 2.0.14719.0. I installed it only for the "Fixes voice recognition issues for non-English user" update detail. While the update helped with the voice issues, I noticed that everytime I login to my usual offline account I get an error message saying I can't connect to Live and asks if I wan't to check my connection. I have to select "No" and only then I can use my offline account.
I would like to mention that Xbox Live is not supported in Romania although Xbox 360 consoles are heavily promoted in my country and you can find them in every decent electronics store with full Microsoft warranty.
I never used the online features and probably never will. I only buy original dvd's and play the games offline.
Is there any way to stop the console from forcing me to connect to Live on everytime I log in to my offline account? Are there any settings that can stop this?
