[quote name='TedBundYzcoa']anyone knows what is this "exclusive avatar item"??[/QUOTE]

[quote name='capybara554321']Does anyone know if it will count if you just turn on an arcade game and leave it it at the menu screen?[/QUOTE]

Not worth the electricity cost, not to mention the usage of your screen/TV which cuts hours from its total lifetime........

I turned on Happy Wars on Monday with my wired controller plugged in (to prevent the pause/disconnected controller pop-up, and left it on for 20+ hours.

I will know if it worked in "3 – 5 days".

If you turn your TV off and are using the newer "Slim" 360 model, 24 hours of electricity usage will cost roughly $0.33 (averaging $0.10 / kWh).

So the question is whether or not the mystery avatar item is worth ~$0.33 to you.

Here if I turn TV off, the Xbox also automatically resets in kind of standby mode, so your game hours won't count. When you turn TV back on, the Xbox automatically reboots from the Xbox logo screen.

Sounds like you have an HDMI handshake issue.
 
[quote name='GamerChris']Sounds like you have an HDMI handshake issue.[/QUOTE]

Yep, it's definitely an HDMI handshake thing. My Xbox will active on after I turn the TV off (game sounds are still being played thru my audio receiver). It's when I turn the TV back on or if I switch inputs away from and then back to the Xbox, that it reboots itself.

Not much you can do about it, except make sure that your TV has the latest firmware.

Ouch. Definitely an HDMI handshake issue as stated above. I fortunately don't suffer from that problem with my TV (Philips). I suppose if you could switch to component/composite temporarily if you don't want to keep your TV on.

I only have this issue with video content (netflix, hulu, streaming from PC). If I pause a game and shut off the TV, everything is still going when I come back.

A crummy football. No

To those having problems with their TVs and/or 360s being hijacked when turning things on/off, you might want to look into whether or not you have "HDMI Ctrl" turned on, also known as RIHD settings. With Sony's (TVs and Receivers) it's called Bravia Sync. Samsung has Viera-something-or-other. Pretty sure most HDMI devices have these settings most of these days, it's worth looking into to see if these things are turned on when you'd rather they're not.

Well, I didn't say it was a suggestion for EVERYONE. :booty:

Maybe you're using a receiver with the setting...?

Uhhhm, is your entertainment center all plugged into a surge protector with a Master/Slave circuit...? (I have one of those for the spare room's system). Or I even once read that someone with a Kinect was trying to keep their 360 turned off but had it plugged into either a cheap surge protector or else was using an extension cord and it would turn-off and then pop right back on "by itself."

I do.
 
There's a 'StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm' avatar t-shirt for free.. I got it the other day while just browsing on the main dash.. watched the video, grabbed the shirt. Hopefully it's still available. I'm in the U.S. btw..

Don't know if this has been mentioned before.
 
I don't think the Heart of the Swarm shirt is still available. I tried finding it on the dashboard and refreshing it a few times but no results.
 
There's also the 'Evil Dead Gamer Picture Pack' and 'Evil Dead Theme' right on the main dash too.. Again, i'll assume that this is US only.
