    Hi All,

    To all thoses in the UK, I hope that you had the chance to watch the program Watchdog this evening.

    There seems to be a problem with several Xbox 360's, the good news is that these are only "isolated incidents", the hardware fault develops approx 14 months (2 months after the warranty expires). This fault is nick-named "the rings of death", this is when three out of the 4 red lights on the front of the xbox 360 lights up.

    On a positive side Microsoft is aware of this problem and is dealing with it on a case by case basis.
