    How do I reset my xbox as my "primary" xbox.


    So me and my brother both got Xbox Ones for christmas. We opened mine first and I signed my account on it. My brother signed on mine first as well.

    What this did though, was set this xbox (since we both signed in on this one first) as both my brother's and my home xbox. So whenever he buys a game on his account it also goes straight to my xbox and can be played on mine by me without having to pay anything.
    I want my "primary" or "home xbox" on his xbox or his primary back on his xbox. This "primary xbox" stuff is set whenever you sign in first to a xbox.

    How do we reset this? Or is it unchangable? It's like the license transfering on Xbox 360 but here it cannot be changed.

    :)

    Just changed my E-mail but can't use the old one to change E-mail on another Xbox account.

    That wasn't what I meant, what I meant is how long do I need to wait to use my primary e-mail on my primary xbox live account since I've already changed my primary email with some secondary email. Do I again need to wait for a month until I can use my primary
    email to replace the email on my primary xbox live account ?

    How do I change my primary email?

    Happened to me but I got the code sent to my home phone via voice message. The message on xbox gives a link to live to update and verify security settings. So no need for an alternate e-mail address as I dont have one. Hope this helps a bit.

    How do I change my primary email?

    [quote user="voteDC"]MY sister changed the email address on her account through the dashboard just last week and no authorisation code was needed.[/quote]

    Yes but I think because I have had the message about security last night and they have already sent me a code to the invalid email, the system says i have to input the code rather than ask me for my password so the process doesnt work, I tried it just
    now after Boas provided the link No Code = No Progress!

    How do I change my primary email?

    @Boas yes indeed I am in the Beta got a massive update last night and then the security message

    @ Vote DC thanks but Boas pointed me in that direction. Although I may have to do that but it seems bloody long winded when I just want to change the email to a valid one

    @ Lofty stop being so bloomin nosey! ;-)

    I will probably try and ring support but when I was suspended for being a naughty Genchy some while ago and rang them to find out why, they said "check your email" I said " I cant its invalid" they said "check your email thats the only way" I said "what
    bit about it being invalid is hard to get a grip on" they said "you need to check your email" and so it went on until I gave up and went away and did my time. Never did find out why i was suspended for 24 hrs.
