NXE causing sound loss for HDMI users

Friday, 21st November 2008 19:58 GMT By Mike


The AVForums are currently awash with people complaining about a sudden loss of sound through HDMI after they installed the New Xbox Experience this week.

If you’re one of these people then don’t worry: apparently all you have to do is turn off the 360, take out the HDD, turn in on again, and while NXE boots up whack the hard drive back in again. It’s worth pointing out that this is a temporary fix only, as once you switch the machine off again, you’ll have to repeat the process next time you switch it on.

Although there were a few minor errors at launch, the mass implementation of NXE has gone rather smoothly, all things been told.

Microsoft has told X3F that it’s aware of the sound problem, and is currently looking into it.

    i heard nxe made it impossible for the 360 to output 1080p. All them 1080 games they got just play in 720 now. sry! oh, and no audio for u.

    Don’t know where you got that from lelik. The internets would have been crushed with the uproar if that was the case. Are you sure you’re not confusing the fact that the dashboard is 720p native?

    Oh, and for what it’s worth… HDMI audio working fine here.
