Help needed with xbox 360 update.

Does anyone know if I can update my xbox 360 if its connected to the internet or if I have to be connected to xbox live?
I want to update the firmware so I can play media on it & older xbox games & at the minute it wont play films & says I need to update.
Does anyone know what media the xbox 360 will play from an external harddrive &
how do I stream from my computer through an ethernet cable?
I think thats it lol,
I would really appreciate any help & will leave rep.

Not sure if you need an xbl account or not, but it should be ok just connecting it to the net.

if you do need xbox live just make a new account and use the free month trial to update

You'll need to be connected to xbox live, but a silver account will be fine.

A small update downloaded from Xbox Live will let you play AAC music, AVI videos, etc

Thank you Sir thats what I was after, have left you some rep :thumbsup:
Will leave everone else some rep as well.

you could just connect your xbox 360 to the internet then maybe you could download the updates from xbox live silver (which is free). it will then play divx, wmv, mpeg-4 and it should play xvid and avi. it can also play these formats in 720p and 1080p if connected through HDMI or in 720p if connected through component. i havn't tried this yet but it should work. sorry if i'm wrong :thumbsup:
