There should be an update link within the consoles general page or one the pages to update the dashboard.

As for playing any types of movies no matter what format as long as the xbox 360 can play such a format ..... you will need to setup the media player portion of the xbox 360 windows media player which can be a pain in the arse at times.

What OS do you have?

If its XP on you PC you will need to download the media extender program and install it on the PC.

If it is Vista then Vista has that installed already.

Or are you just trying to play a DVD-DVIX movie onto your TV or PC?

If so then i am not sure unless the windows media portion has to be programmed/setup in order to recognize the divix movie.

For lots of info check MS's website about the Xbox 360 playing movies and such and look up about windows media player.
