Optional media update

Hi guys n gals, looking for a lil help. My brother has picked up a banned console on the cheap for his kids to play on as well as using it for a media extender, any ideas on how he can acquire the media update if it can't be connected to XBL? Mods I'm only asking for the update, nothing else. Thanks guys!!

After a bit of thinking, I don't think there is any way, you can actually do this if its the console thats banned from xbox live, unless you downloaded the update with a new profile onto a different HDD with a different console, and then transferred both the account and update to the banned console.

The Media Update isn't a title update it's actually DLC, unfortunately if you can't connect to Xbox live you can't download DLC. Even if you downloaded it on an alternative Xbox the update wouldn't be signed to work on your console.

Yeah this whole Optional Media Update is a real pain, when live went down the other day I couldn't sign in and therefore couldn't stream any media as I wasn't on the original Xbox I downloaded it with.

Really shits me at times

Manky - have you done the license transfer? This should transfer all the licenses from a previous xbox to your latest one which should help you get round that problem. You can only do this once a year (I think) though. I had a problem accessing some of my downloads when I had to start a new profile after emigration to avoid lag, but the license transfer solved that. Hope that is helpful.

Yeah I really need to do that transfer, just haven't got around to it.

I do have multiple xbox's though so this would only solve the issue for one of them, it's just an unnecessary pain in my @@@. I know the reasoning is to cut the costs of the licensing of the codex but I just wish they supported more formats out of the box.

Won't work Major, as Drabs said. Plus the media update (unless it's changed recently) still has issues with the license transfer - AFAIK it's the only content that actually doesn't re-authorize properly. Even if the console was legit, you'd have to use a 2nd profile to "buy" it again so the console gets a proper license for it.

As it can't happen and you've got your answer, gonna lock this one down. Nothing personal, wouldn't want it going the wrong way when such "special" console talk is a no-no.
