      Disconnecting when: Host of game, using sky player or downloading 1GB+ files

      I'm currently faced with a very bizarre issue that so far, Xbox support nor Sky support can figure out. When I try to use Sky Player, I will be disconnected from Xbox Live. Same goes for downloading big files. The only temporary fixes I have found are running a xbox live connection test which fixes it for a few days, but then it comes back. Same goes for when I get picked to host MW2 games, it will disconnect 5-10 mins into the game.

      Currently I am downloading the new BF demo on a different ethernet cable and it hasn't disconnected yet. So the question is, my setup up or issue on Sky/Xbox's end?

      Just sounds like the SkyPlayer is saturating the connection...
