Xbox live - dodgy performance in voice chat+joining games

I seem to have all sorts of problems with certain peropls when joining games and sending/receiving voice chat invites.

Heres what was happening last night - its driving me up the wall!

My mate (a plusnet user also) is online, so I send him a voice chat invite. He accepts, it fails.

He sends me one, same problem. We try this several times. No joy.

I ask him to check hit NAT - its Open.
I check mine, its open too.

What gives?? Why do these connections keep failing?

On previous occasions, we`ve used voice chat no problem.

The main reason that this may fail is that voice chat regularly uses the same ports identified for P2P downloads. Raise a ticket through the members centre, and our Networks team will pick this up. Please advise them of the port numbers that you are using and also your IP address if possible.

Hope this helps,

Sorry to have revived an old topic, but it also depends on how you connect to Xbox Live. If you connect through your PC, your NAT shows as Open when it may not be.
