First Look: New Xbox Experience setup gallery

New Xbox Experience: Spotlight

So, you know that nifty you’ve been hearing about all over the place? Well, our pals up in Redmond gave us the opportunity to grab the dashboard a few weeks before it becomes publicly available on November 19th. We have a bunch of info coming your way in the coming days (and, please, feel free to leave any questions on the forum and we will answer them all - seriously, ask away!). In the meantime, though, we thought we would take you through the setup process. After downloading the update (which takes a good, I dunno, 10 seconds), your Xbox 360 will reboot, load the new firmware, and hit you with a high impact video before dumping you into the new dashboard. It really is all sorts of fancy. We’ve created a New Xbox Experience setup gallery with a bunch of pictures showing you the process of installing, setting up, creating your avatar, and browsing around the new interface. Go ahead and take a look, and don’t forget, leave your questions here.

Hi, Thanks so much for the excellent walkthrough of the NXE. I was wondering though about the Xbox Guide button. Did its function or interface change with the NXE?

My friend brought up a good point to me the other day. Can you still use the wallpapers that you have downloaded or are you just SOL? I'm very much curious to know.

Good to see this thread was payed attention to.

Oasis: The guide button now resembles the old-school Blade interface of the dashboard. So if you don't like the NXE look, just hit the guide button for a mini version of the old look :) uglyfido: You *can* still use the old themes, but as we said in the video, they take more of a back seat as far as presentation goes. However, there are newer Premium Themes for the NXE that do things like change the environments in your Friend list and things like that.

Thanks for the reply. It's good to know that the old themes that you spent hard earned money on are still usable if you so choose.

Does the nxe support 16:10 tvs? If so, by what connections?

While surfing net to get data related to project i came here and find this web an interesting one...i found useful information at here...There are certainly many different posts at here...And this one also seems to me different one!
