360 HD-DVD Add-On Still Has Support
 
Despite HD-DVD's loss of the HD war and the discontinued production of the Xbox 360's HD-DVD player add-on, support for the drive isn't dead quite yet.
 
If you have an Xbox 360 HD DVD player, you’ll be prompted for an auto update the next time you watch an HD DVD movie (and your are signed into Xbox Live.)

This update includes:

* Compatibility improvements with certain titles
* Additional support for network features

If you don’t have access to Xbox Live, this update will be available for download from Xbox.com later this week.
 
This just shows the dedication of at least the Xbox 360's development team in making sure the 360 users get the most functionality out of their products, even the EOL ones.  More than likely this will be the last update.
 
Do you still have your Xbox 360 HD-DVD add-on player? Glad to see this (final?) update?

So for a while now, i've been getting these two problems in Opera:

(excuse the shifty 'chopping)



Now as you can see, on the left side i have highlighted all the little [AD] ... things. I'm not sure what they are or what's causing them but they're damned annoying, and i even get them in IE.
I'd like them gone. Anybody know how to do this?
(These are just a few example of sites i visit often.)

...


The second problem is on the right. A grab from another forum i frequent (had to zoom out in Opera to get a good showing). You can see that 3 out of 4 avatars aren't showing. This happens on other forums, and again, i don't know why. I've tried refreshing, but nothing.
I would like them back - Anybody know what's going on? Some avatars show, others don't. Very confusing.


So yeah, anybody know any solutions to these troubles?

I'm running 9.27 which is, the latest version. Updated yesterday.
I've performed a Spyware scan with Spybot S&D, AV'd with AVG and also AdAware'd...

HELP!!


(Oh and please no "Get Firefox lol").

The avatar thing might be that the forum only displays a persons avatar on their first response on each page.

Get firefox cough cough

are you using some kind of blocking?

Oh yeah? I'm assuming you mean OCN...?

@ Buff - No blocking or anything.

My only idea is some spyware somewhere, as the same thing happened after a reinstall of Windows, but when i run a scan, nothing comes of it..

I can't remember if it was AVG or another AV proggie, but they recently introduced Ad blocking into their latest engine update and enabled it by default :eek:

The reason for the avatar blocking could be that the avatars are the same size as a standard banner type.
