Just got home, turned on XBox- required update notification, so I install it- like I always do. XBox reboots and now, nothing. NOTHING. I left it there for 12 minutes, and that's after I started timing it once I realized something was wrong. It's just sitting there, powered on, but not doing anything- no splash screen, no MS logo- in fact, my TV doesn't even recognize there is a signal coming from the XBox.
Forced updates that break it. That's awesome. There goes my plans for the morning off.
