This is a beautifully made app. It really looks the business and in theory does an awesome job. Although it crashed a lot on Leopard 10.5.6 but now in 10.5.7 there is no chance, it won't even let me sign in now without crashing. It's a real shame because this is a stunning app. I would happily pay around $5 for this or donate if it worked. Which it doesn't.

Crashes in OSX 10.5.7 on my iMac 24" Alu 2,4 Ghz... Worked ok with 10.5.6 except the fact that it could not auto log in.

I had the same error: Unable to Connect to Xbox Live The error returned was "NSRangeException : *** -[NSCFString substringWithRange:]: Range or index out of bounds" Solved it this way: When you sign in to XBL with Safari, be sure to select "Save my e-mail address and password." This is essential, but is not the default on the sign-in page.

If you log in with safari and set it to remember your email and password then Xbox Live Friends will work.

Can't log in to Xbox within the application at all. "Unable to Connect to Xbox Live The error returned was "NSRangeException : *** -[NSCFString substringWithRange:]: Range or index out of bounds"" Gutted.. this app looks perfect.

Do you think it would be possible to cut down on the RAM usage? I'm not sure if it's just because it's Applescript, but it's using about 45MB of RAM (I have it hidden and running in the background and call it up if I need it) Thanks, ~Balthamos

I persistently get an error whenever the friends list goes to reload. AppleScript Error Can't make file (file "Macintosh HD:Users:USERNAME:Desktop:Xbox Live Suite 2.2:Xbox Live Friends.app:Contents:Resources:Scripts:Friends List.scpt") into type file. (-1700) Also, this thing devours half of my CPU whenever it goes to check status. I don't think there would be a way to fix that, though (since M$ hasn't streamlined 360 checking yet). I'm on 10.4.5, PowerBook G4 1.5GHz 1gig RAM Thanks for all yr hard work!

I just setup a Pluto Home system (smarthome + media server, plutohome.com, free open source). It's really cool. It has a streaming movie server, music server, pvr. Plus it does home automation and controls a/v equipment too. There's only 1 problem… You designate 1 PC to be the server; they call it the core. It exposes a network boot image for any other PC in the house, so your PC becomes dual purpose-normal pc, or net boot and it's a set top box. You control it with Bluetooth mobile phones or web pads. And all the set top boxes in the house work together. Your media even follows you as you move from room to room if you keep the phone on. The problem is I don't have enough media pc's for all the rooms in my house, and buying a full PC for each room is too expensive. Plus there's no video cards for the PC that have component video output-which is the only way I can get HDTV into my tv. The X-Box seems perfect as a media director. It's a PC inside, right? So why couldn't it boot like normal as an Xbox, or net boot as a pluto media director? Then it would be part of a whole house solution that did everything. I could even use the Xbox to turn on my sprinklers if I wanted, and do all sorts of stuff with it. Plus, since Pluto gives it a network boot image, space is no longer an issue-all the software could be stored on the main server. And the XBox has component video and it's quiet and cheap. Does anybody have an idea if it would be possible to use the XBox as a media director like that, doing a network boot? Then I could just buy a few of the XBox's rather than having to buy regular PC's.

This is a substantial improvement over the previous version. It's much more reliable and doesn't seem to have the continued problems maintaining a Passport login the way version 1.x did. The Halo 2 emblem designer is fun as well. Nice work!

This is a great program. I was using one at work (on a PC) which is the same concept as this one for the mac, but NOT NEARLY as functional as this one is. Great layout, easy to use, LOVE the stats option and the voice announcement.

This program is a pain to get to work. I tried to get my MSN Passport to link with my gametag but the page kept refreshing and telling me it "couldn't link my name to my gametag" before I could finish putting in the exorbitant amount of information it asks you for. INCLUDING phone #, credit card digits, etc. Sounds sketchy to me. Oh yea, I never got it to work either. Good idea. Lame execution.

freaking sweet, i have some suggestions make the widow, with a search bar optional, so you can make it smaller, also, have the window for the stats display the percentage of completion, to the next level, look at MLG, kinda like that. also, make the program, so that when you double click it bring up the details

I solved the cookies problem I reported earlier. I had turned off cookies in Safari some time ago and kept them off. Apparently Safari's settings are universal to any webkit app.

It seems like a good idea, and is a good idea, but can this please be made for 10.2? Others just like me, are waiting for a 10.2 version!

It looks like it could be a cool app, but when I try logging in with my .net thing, I get an error saying that cookies must be turned on to log it. Cool use of webkit, though!

As a 0.5 product this app is great. Most of the limitations appear to be with xbox.com and not the software. For some reason Xbox Live won't let you stay logged in for more than an hour. The app is well integrated and actually has a little web browser built-in that points to the log-in page for Xbox Live to make signing in easier. Did I say "Xbox" enough?

Seems like it could be a very helpful application though a couple of suggestions maybe? Make it a bundled plug-in for iChat so it is not a self running application but rather a extensions and saves on clutter. Optimize it to run smoother, seems to like chug along and is non responsive here and there.
