Microsoft has released a minor dashboard update for Xbox 360 that tackles a long-running VGA output issue and tweaks a couple of other areas for her pleasure etc.

Automagically acquired when you next log in to Xbox Live, the patch promises improved support for HD video output over VGA, including 1080p, as well as improved plug and play performance for wired headsets used with wireless controllers.

Xbox Live director of programming Major Nelson's blog also notes that eagle-eyed gamers will spot changes made to the "recently played games" list to improve its accuracy.

Anyway, you don't have to download the update, remember, but you won't be able to connect to Xbox Live until you do. Instead you will be an outcast, forced to wander the Internet alone, and that will be rubbish and so on.
