Just two days after the Xbox 360 Fall Update added DivX and Xvid support, Connect360 – the app that shares your Mac's music, photos, and videos with your 360 – has been updated to support the new codecs. We imagine the update wasn't that difficult, since simply changing a video's file ...

Make no mistake about it, we've no qualms with a single gizmo handling more than a few tasks, but something about Lipljan Digital Technology's YDPG69 just screams intrapsychic conflict.

Things were a little different this year. For their second Xbox 360 Fall Dashboard Update, Microsoft decided to trickle the features out instead of dropping them on us all at once. Around Halloween, we realized things were awful quiet, so we asked you what you wanted to see in the Fall Update. ...

SmartQ has another flash based portable media player for us from China with the release of the SmartQ T5.

The first list allegedly detailing the feature set of the Xbox 360 Fall Dashboard Update has landed on Xbox Forums, and promises some wonderful possibilities. None more so than Xvid codec support.

Those familiar with the Helios name probably haven't forgotten the uber-cheap H4000 that landed late last year, but the firm has outdone itself once again by slipping under that oh-so-magical $100 price point with the H2000. This slim multiformat player can not only upscale your standard DVDs to 1...
