    Last season in our OD, Masler and I played a half but got disconnected. Then every time we tried to play again, no matter which of us invited, the other got a message saying "Game session no longer available" and were unable to join. What happens is that the invitee will accept, then it'll load the tuning and other stuff (I think coaching records or whatever) and then they'll get the error message. The inviter will sit at the "Waiting for opponent" screen and they'll see the "Waiting for opponent" message flash briefly when the invitee tries to accept but then they'll be sitting at that screen indefinitely until they exit the session.

    This season we're playing again and every time we've tried we've had the same problem. I've never had this issue with any other user in our OD. Does anyone know how to fix this so we can play?

    I've never done anything that consistently was effective. Sometimes power cycling everything works. Sometimes you just have to try to play later. Sometimes it seems it's just destined to fail. I could not ever reproduce what was causing it, but I've had it happen plenty of times.

    Did both of you take your router (NAT settings) out of the equation?

    Connect your modem directly your Xbox.

    Masler did this and we were able to play today.

    Thanx Shaun!

    I try to tell people that H2H are peer to peer. If it doesn't work it's due to a peer.

    For what it's worth, sometimes it does not work if both users connect directly to the modem. Although it is definitely something that you should try to do while you are troubleshooting.
