whasts the deal with the wireless controllers?? do they turn off after a certain amount of time not being used, or do they stay on and drain my fucking battery if i forget to turn it off?
they will turn off after a certain amount of time,they also turn off when u turn off the console, u know how to turn off the console from the controller right,just hold down the guide button,theres also an option to turn off the controller from there too..but yea they dont stay on and drain ur battery if u put the game on pause and go do sumthin,im not exactly sure how long it is before they turn off,mayb 10mins or sumthin? dunno,if ur gonna be away for a awhile then either turn the system off or turn the controller off if ur worried bout draining ur battery, u got a play and charge kit though right? if so battery aint no thang  8)

u set it up through the xbox,do u got the 1 year subscription code,u gotta buy that and then u input the code into the 360 in the registration thing
its pretty easy to do,gotta fill out a bunch of shit but its easy,u gotta get the 12month card thing though first from a store,did u get that?
should look like this
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10067317&catid=

unless u got the xbox1 subscription code,u can maybe find it at rogers video if ur lucky,the xbox starting pack for the first xbox,they sell it for 40cdn and it includes a year of xboxlive gold,thats how i got my year subscription 8)

yup any ethernet cord will work

If u have a media center pc then u can stream music and videos from ur comp onto ur 360

if u dont have a mediacenter pc (like me) then u got 2 options
1. u can plug ur mp3 player (ipod,creative,sony etc) into ur 360 and stream music off that
2. U can buy a CD-RW and burn songs from ur comp onto the disc and then put the disc into ur 360 and burn them onto the built in hardrive ,make sure u get a CDRW because im pretty sure CD-R will not work

o yea and that remote that came with the system can be used to cycle through songs while playing any game,just gotta make sure the custom music is on,makes it alot easier 8)

it also says i can connect using windows media connect.... it says to connect the 360 to the PC and then install some software.... i goto download the software for windows xp sp2 (which i use)... the file extracts but then nothing happens... supposedly a screen is supposed 2 pop up and set it up... also, when the 2 are connected i open media connect and it doesnt show the 360 in the device section, im guessing this is due to not being able to set up the other program?!?!?!?!?
