I think I can help! Press the home button, scroll to the left to the 'Marketplace' tab (I think that's what it is.) and if you are connected to Xbox Live, it should have an 'Active Downloads' button. The tab might not be Marketplace (And I currently can not go check) but I know after you press the home button you go to the left to find it.

Edit: If you want to do it the hard way, you can find the game and try to download the demo again. If the demo hasn't already completed downloading, it will show youthe download status.

Press the silver X in the middle of your pad. Move over two leaves to the left and you should see the option for Active Downloads.

It's been a while since I downloaded the 2 demos but they still aren't on my demo list with the other games! If I click to download them again it says I already have downloaded them! I've never had problems with demos before wonder why these are messing me up!

I'm having the same issue, but none of these answers help.
u click the guide button iam2green
Do you mean the yellow "Y" button on the Xbox universal remote? That doesn't do anything when I press it in front of my Xbox console...
Press the home buttonBradHummr
There is no "home" button on either my Xbox universal remote or my Xbox wireless controller.

"move over two leaves"... Which direction? You can move either left or right, and regardless of the direction, I don't see anything that says "Active Downloads." :( I finally did this to find out what I wanted to know, but there MUST be an easier way to check on download status:
