I am a programmer in the Netherlands. I work at Xebia. The JVM is my home turf and I've been doing a lot of Android work lately.

comment Xbox 360 powers on but does not boot
My XBox used to be plugged directly into the TV, which does the handshake even on standby. I upgraded to a home theatre receiver that does HDMI switching, but only responds on whatever port is the active input. Booting the XBox with the TV off never was a problem, with the receiver it needs to be on and on the right channel. I usually turn it on before the XBox, but changed my habit for no apparent reason and then failed to connect the dots.

HDMI was indeed the key. This also explains why customer service couldn't find anything wrong. Thank you.
