    If I didn't want to play in this league so much....

    I'd quit playing xbox all together. I'm fucking pissed. After having 1 xbox have the video crap out and another get red rings, I bought a used one at Gamestop last Friday. Last night after I played a game it froze up and now every time I turn it on it locks up before even getting to the dashboard. I'm taking this bitch into Gamestop this weekend and going all Michael Douglas in Falling Down on their asses.

    Bondz, get one of the new ones. Just don't corrupt your gamertag and take back 3 in one day before you realize it's your fault.:)

    Yea, that's what I did.

    It is a great deal if you have an older one. The promotion is regional at this point though.

    Exactly, I was running composite, now I am running HDMI into the TV, SPDIF passthrough to my receiver for both the Xbox and my DVR/Cable box.

    My TV supports digital audio passthrough, unfortunately it changes the pass to some other non-original format. So I currently go HDMI into the TV and then SPDIF out to my receiver, but I can't get DTS or whatever the game is supposed to put out. Doesn't sound bad, just not ideal.

    Bondzai...

    I have 2 Xboxs. I had my original, it red rings, sent it in, and bought a used one in that time frame, it red ringed, sent that one in 2.

    I hardly play anymore, so have 2 refurbs from Xbox, both work fine.

    If you want one, I'll sell it to you cheap. In the mean time, you can send your current one into Xbox to be fixed.

    PM if you want

    If you can find one running the promotion, it is basically.

    $100 - Your Xbox
    $30+ - Hard drive (Bigger = more $$)
    $40 - Wireless Adapter (Not needed, built in to new one)
    -----
    $170 towards a new $299 Xbox.

    I traded in some games on top of it and ended up putting $60 bucks cash down.

    I am not sure if how much they will give you. Call and ask, it can't hurt.

    The xbox was returned without incident. There will be no need for bail money donations.
