I have a modded xbox 360, not banned and which has never been used online since it was modded. I want to play divx movies on it, but it asks to download some file from the web. Should I download the file, or would I be just asking to be flagged for a future ban?

there is a chance you might get flagged when downloading the file but if you dont go online anyway whats the big issue

For one in a flagged console, if you transferred your profile to a memory stick to say take to a friends it would corrupt, also your gamerscore wouldnt update etc.

There i issues each way but its best not to go online, you can update with a USB pen even without the usb update though not sure how far back that goes with models I had a banned console which I updated via usb even though it was before the usb memory card update.

u cant download the media update from micrsoft i dont think only dashboard

Where can you download these usb pen updates?

So you've never signed on xbox live but you're worried about getting flagged? What's the point of staying offline the whole time if you don't want to get banned, may as well just stay on xbox live until you get banned.

And as for saves being corrupt, there's a easy fix to uncripple it anyway.

No point living in fear of getting banned just man up and sign on imo.

u must download the acutal divx updte due to it being a each time licience deal MS have with them.
u could always just stream using windows media centre

Its a pain though to transfer profile to usb then edit with a pc then back again.

How do they detect modded consoles (when on live)?

Is it immediate or just when he attempts to use a game backup online?

So I can stream movies on my home network using Windows media centre, risk free, are you sure?

You have a point.
OK I think I will consider going online. Anything I should do to minimise risk of ban though?

It should be ok, if your isos were patched right.
