ok, I just bought a 12mo Subscription to Xbox Live gold, and Rockband Beatles arrived in the mail today.. Went to apply the points and my xbox decided "Hey ima red ringin on you nao"

How long does it take Microshaft to fix/replace these?

Months. A friend has had his Xbox 360 RROD twice so far, first time took four months to get it sorted, second time was shorter at around 2 months. This was a while ago so it may have improved, but I doubt it. There was a stat in the news recently over the amount of Xbox's that RROD within two years, I can't remember what it was but it was significant.

Ugh, I might look at buying a new 360, probably the best thing to do. I have also heard that because of the new manufacturing process the new consoles are less-prone to RROD's etc.
