With the exception of the XBox extender issue, it seems to me that all your problems relate to nvidia graphics cards and lousy drivers.

I can say that I have not experienced anything like that at all...but my HTPC uses AMD onboard (or more properly on-chip) graphics. And I let it do all updates. I do use Spectrum cable.
Two were with an AMD system, which has now become an nVidia system to solve its issue. :)

I'd be using on-board Intel if I was re-building from scratch, but the fact remains that nobody tests their stuff against 8.1 anymore. Also, only one of those was caused by a driver update, running around for the security patches. The rest was Windows updates changing behavior, and, protip: lots of things show up as being, "Caused," by the video driver, when they're not the fault of the video driver, because of how it hooks directly to the kernel. Windows user space debugging is weird...
