Recently I have been using my xbox 360 to watch downloaded shows on my tv. The majority of the shows work. However, sometimes the xbox will only play the first 15 or so minutes of the show. Its like it thinks the video is only 15 minutes long. However, in the screen where you select the video you want to play, it recogninzes that the video is 62 minutes long. The files that works and the files that dont work are both .avi so there shouldnt be any problem there. Any ideas guys?

It could be just a broken DL or possibley a codec problem, even though all files are .avi they may have different encoding, however when that is the case the movie shouldn't work at all. So I am thinking broken DL.

It was downloaded on my computer. It was last weeks episode of top gear. It is the posting from eztv. However, the previous 2 weeks work just fine.
Yea, the download is fine then, because i have that too, and it works fine.

I don't know then.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
