I recently got a reasonable internet connection and wanted to use this with the XBOX to download some movies. This is where I found my first obstacle. I already had an existing windows live account and wanted to use this with the XBOX, which was the easy part.
Being XBOX, it will continuously try to download the needed updates as you go on. I wanted to download the video codecs for an AVI file. Apparently this is still a major issue for XBOX in South Africa. I went to google for a little help from my friends and found the following forum that helped me immensely!

“The main thing will be (as everybody has indicated) create a new account (gamertag) which is based in the UK or USA. To do this, you will need to do the following:

  1. Open an e-mail account with a USA address. I created a new hotmail acount and used the ZIP Code for Los Angeles (9005).
  2. Once this has been done, go to your dashboard and sign out.
  3. Sign back in, but on the screen select create new account;
  4. Complete all the details and when prompted to insert an e-mail address, insert your new e-mail address;
  5. Once the account has been created sign in under this gamertag;
    Go to your Video Library and select the media again;

  6. When prompted to download, select download now;
  7. The download will then start.
This solves the problem and did it without further hassle.
Further to the above also check out the extra stuff you have access to when you are signed in under the new gamertag. 
You can use the downloaded content in your own gamertag again as well. Only use the US account to download!
At last the xbox now serves it's purpose for me”

This also did the trick for me and I enjoyed a lot of new content!
I hope that this will help you lot out there as well.
Ciao!
