Well, I must say I am pretty impressed. I figured I was going to be a statistic and no longer able to play my XBLA games while Live was down for maintenance. But after one call to Xbox support and only a week gone by, they have resolved this issue to my complete satisfaction. I simply headed over to my download history and “re-downloaded” the content. It didn’t really have to download as it was already there, it simply had to renew the license. But after about an hour of updating (I have quite a few XBLA and DL content) I was back to normal.
I must say that Microsoft has started to get a handle on the DRM issue. I hope you are as successful as I was.
