XBOX360 Receiver Turning Off

Just ran a Microsoft XBOX 360 update, and my Yamaha receiver is now shutting off. Hadn't used the XBOX in a few weeks, so the update may be a little old. Just optical from XBOX going to receiver, HDMI is going directly to TV. First 2 games I tried are Microsoft games... Halo 3 & Gears of War. They will play for a few seconds, then the power goes out on the receiver. Put in Rock Band, and the receiver acted fine. Gears of War played fine, sans audio... but Halo 3 is not working. Had to move on, but will get try more things later.

Xbox360 update download failing


This usually happens when the Xbox does not have enough space to save the update to in order to install it. Make sure you clear out enough space so you are able to properly install the update.

Here is a list of other errors that can happen to system updates.

2 problems loss of power a xbox 360 console


Check to see if any prongs are touching or bent in the USB ports. When the USB port prongs are bent they sometimes wind up touching the receiver tips of where the USB makes contact with any devices that you plug in. If they are bent just bend them up so they arent touching the metal receivers and that should solve the no power to xbox360.

How do I connect my xbox 360 to my yamaha HTR 6230 receiver?


Use HDMI because they combine picture and sound in one convenient cable. You can buy the cheapy ones because they work the same as the pricey ones with no degradation in sound quality or picture.

Can't turn on my controller without turning on the 360.


Hello,

unfortunately this wont be possible.
The thing is both your computer and the xbox360 are on the exact same frequency, meaning that if both devices are in radius they will both go on.

If the xbox360 is nearby then I would recommend to unplug the power cable while you are using the controller for the PC.

This is only a workaround but I hope it helped.

You must sync the 360 with your controller. Turn on your 360 and your controller. Push the little black button on the front of your console, then hold the little tiny button on the top of your controller for a few seconds. This should sync them.
