Xbox Live hit by sign-in problems - games, music and video a

Haven't been able to sign in for a week. Not been desperate for it so just left it, glad to know it will get fixed soon. Craving some Cops 'N' Crooks IV multiplayer. It just stopped signing in one turn on last week. Won't connect to the router even though it's absolutely fine on my PC and phone. Anyone else find this? Doesn't even get past the first step when you test connections!

I've been getting a repeated problem where the loading circle just keeps going and never loads.

And don't be smug Kernow, it's very unflattering ;)

Lately I've been having swirly circles for ages and then not being logged into Live when the dash finally appears. After that, trying to log in to Live fails saying there's something wrong with the router, which is news to my PC, phone and tablet because they have no problems. I have to switch the machine off and then back on again to be able to connect to Live.

Sometimes I'll get disconnected from Live for no reason at all and it's the same problem all over again. Unable to log in to Live unless I switch my 360 off and back on again.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the current situation, I just wanted to whine about it. :lol:

That's rubbish...especially when it's not much fun without some pals along.

Also congrats on the refreshingly normal username.

Are you implying CunningSmile isn't the name on my passport? :lol:

That's a little presumptuous isn't it?

Who's to say "Laura Johnson" isn't a male who's stalking the real life person of the same name? :D

It's the perfect crime!

Try putting in the campaign disc first then swap to the multiplayer disc.

It took 20 minutes for me to get past the loading screen on BF3 as well. Good job I had to feed the Geese so at least I didnt have to wait on it loading. It would seem to be a problem with digital games or games you have DLC for if the chat is to be believed on the Xbox Beta forums.

Apparently the problem is now fixed according to Xbox Support's Twitter. I'd pop in and update the story myself but I don't want to scare Ed in the morning if he woke up and saw me out of the OXM Towers Dungeon on a weekday.

It didn't really require anyone being online 100% of the time - checking in once every 24 hours is not 100% of the time.

And the laughing smiley clearly meant he was being deadly serious and not, y'know, joking, right?
