    ah just found it on major nelsons website.......

    Dashboard Update (aka the HDMI Audio fix)

    <script type="text/javascript">digg_url = 'http://majornelson.com/archive/2009/02/02/dashboard-update-aka-the-hdmi-audio-fix.aspx';digg_bgcolor = '#ffffff';digg_skin = 'compact';digg_window = 'new';</script><script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script><iframe src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.php?u=http%3A//majornelson.com/archive/2009/02/02/dashboard-update-aka-the-hdmi-audio-fix.aspx&s=compact&t=Xbox%20Live%27s%20Major%20Nelson&w=new&k=%23ffffff" scrolling="no" width="120" frameborder="0" height="18"></iframe>
    Starting Tuesday morning at 0200 Pacific when you sign into Xbox Live you’ll be prompted for a mandatory dashboard update. The update addresses the issue that a few folks were having with audio and their HDMI connection.

    This update will be rolled out to all Xbox LIVE members around the world over the space of a few hours, so you may not get prompted for the update immediately. Thanks for your patience.

    I don't understand why people keep saying it was a 'huge' update. I pressed Download, went for a slash, came back and it was done. 30 seconds tops?

    Me too, I am connected over wireless and keep getting informed on here that wireless is rubbish, but it seems a lot quicker than some peoples setups.
