Here is a PSA from us at Platform Nation to the couple of Zune users left out there. OK we know there are more than a few that is why we are letting you know that on January 25th and for 24 hours the Zune Marketplace will be under going some scheduled maintenance, the maintenance is set to start at 10 PM PST. Your library on your Zune will still be accessible and content stored on your PC or your 360 HDD will still be available. But once all is said and done you will be prompted to update the PC Zune software and older device software will have to be updated to allow connection to the Zune services. This update is focused on Smart DJ on HD and AVI/XVID video that is set to come later this Spring.
As with previous service updates, we recommend you download any new music, video rentals or purchases and sync Zune Pass content prior to the downtime. Content that is stored on your PC or Xbox 360 HDD will remain available during the downtime.Once the Zune service is restored, you will be prompted to update the Zune PC software. Additionally, older Zune device firmware (4, 8, 16, 30, 80, 120 GB) will need to be updated to allow continued connection to the Zune service. Zune HD owners will not have to update the device firmware.
