am in australia and cant get the xenium to boot up to menu screens with the ms dvd dongle in any of the ports. i have installed 10 chips and they all seem to be the same. i waited for the os update and have spent the afternoon updating all boxes but i still have the prob, which is if their is 2 controllers in( both originals) and the dongle in, it hangs on boot up, as soon as i remove the dongle i have no problems. any ideas?

Does it work with one controller on port 1 and remote on port 4?
I believe the magic is to have remote on port 4.
Try that with different combinations.

works fine with 1 controller but as soon as their is 2 it s**ts itself, which is fine but it means i have to tell people to boot with 1 controller then put the second 1 in. which is a real pain in the arse because they will ring up all the time if they forget.

Not that this helps at all, but I'm also in Australia and I have no problems at all doing it with my 1.4.

No problems here either even with all 3 filled and a DVD dongle in...
maybe it's a power issue I wonder...
Have you tried flipping the emergeny recovery switch and letting it run the 1.1 OS update?
EDIT I'll join Flagg3 it does boot with no controller in too!

No problems here either after the 1.1 update. I can now boot with no controller, with just the dongle plugged in, or any combination including a logitech wireless.
Are you sure the update took?

No problems here with the DVD dongle being plugged in here either before or after the update.

Honestly, what is wrong with you peope, just remove dongle, and put back in when ready....are you guys that fat and(or) lazy that you cannot move to plug something in? PLZ do not take offence if some ofyou are fat(the lazy thing is a sterotype)?!!

listen Tidusblitz111, i dont care about my own system i have no probs doing what u said, but when u install for ppl, the last thing i want is 20 phone calls a night about this prob. i am not arguing with your point but you have to look at the other side of the coin. please try and be constructive next time.

Lets not be rude.

i think its just you, not the chips or os
mine works without anything plugged in
all 4 plugged in (2 m$ controllers, wireless, and dvd remote)
lust the dongles of 2 m$ controllers
and i agree with tidus
tell your customers to not be lazy
