I recently updated the dash for Portal 2, and we've been playing that on a previously banned console. Today, we kicked it on to try out the co-op mode of Portal 2, and I noticed the updates to ads and such in the dash... and I was logged into Xbox Live.
My Gold membership long expired, but I'm in, and able to do stuff like download demos and such.
Very cool, if I've been given a second chance. Anybody else have this luck?

Xbox does currently have an alert posted though, which may have something do to with this
Users may experience difficulties with the following services:
Creating new Xbox LIVE accounts, managing those accounts, or recovering an account on a different console
We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience
I guess we will have to wait a couple hours to see if we are still online

This is probably just temporarily, but lets wait and see what happens.

Interesting. I wonder if the rumors about the next dashboard flashing optical drive firmware is true (not sure how it does that with firmguard "protected" units), which this might be pretty smart on Microsoft's part.
If nothing else, they can get people to spend money online for DLC and XBLA games, that couldn't before.

Looks like banned consoles can log into Silver memberships.
Gold as well, however I am unable to update my games, or use netflix.
