    The problem with parental timers is that parents tend to be completely unaware of them and unable to configure them.

    World of Warcraft has one. I wonder how many of those nine million accounts make use of it.

    It's probably best just to flip a circuit breaker every night at bed time :devil:

    The downtime has nothing to do with the update at least not directly. It's probably just general Xbox.com site and Xbox Live network maintenance as these downtimes usually are.

    Regards films and TV shows the video market place is not supposed to launch before November so you won't see them at least until then.

    Plus Halo 3 is coming. Quite possibly the downtime is to prepare for that.

    Parental Timer feature is a great idea if they market it properly.

    Why would they need downtime to prepare for Halo 3 ? I can't think of any reason for that.

    Network upgrades.

    Imagine the network traffic this game is going to generate, the second it's launched...
