I've noticed after the past few system updates and whatever Microsoft decides to do with the 360 that the start up takes a very long time. It seems like the more updates the Xbox takes in, the slower it tends to get. The homepage will not load for a while, but I can bring up the dashboard if I press the home button, making things go a bit faster that way.

Actually, now that I think about it, it maybe a problem with the console connecting to Xbox Live. But I would still like to hear some feedback from you guys, if possible.

Yeah, since the last update, it takes a while for the homepage to show up when you power it on. You're just staring at the wallpaper for some time with those "loading, please wait" spinning circles.

Mine seems okay. I don't know. It might be too bogged down with advertisements and useless tabs at this point.

Not really a problem of lag time for start up or anything that I've noticed recently. The only annoying thing is how many updates are coming out even in the middle of games. Which, annoys me to the core especially if I haven't saved. I dunno though, I run a high speed wired connection for live streaming and such so maybe that helps. But every once in a while it'll take a bit to load but that's because I selected stuff to fast. ^^;

So what you guys are saying is I shouldn't connect my xbox 360 to the internet. ...so it can "UPDATE".

The latest updates have killed the software side of the console. Seriously, it takes ages for sections to load it's incredible.

You can always clear out your cache, the 360 is kinda slow especially when it comes to that dashboard.

I've had this problem for the last year or so. Out of curiosity, are other people with this issue on XBL silver or gold? I have a suspicion that people on silver are being dropped to the bottom of priority for server connections and bandwidth, and this is what causes the delay.

I often find that the homepage won't load at all unless there's already a disc in the drive when I switch the system on. I never used to leave discs in the tray when not in use, but this crappy problem has made it necessary.
