    Locking home xbox from theft (similar to Find My functionality on Mac)


    It would be nice if Microsoft would adopt a similar feature to "find my" in the apple ecosystem, so if someone steals your console it's essentially bricked. It's sort of ridiculous in my opinion that the Xbox doesn't have some way to lock down the home xbox from theft at this time.

    Minecraft purchases transferred to my sons account

    Hi Kenji,

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, there is no way of transferring purchases from one account to another account. On the Xbox there is

    home console sharing
    . On the Ipad or any other device you would need to find out if there is a similar choice. I will be locking this thread as it has been answered.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    could I run BF3 on my 13' Macbook Pro?

    no, no offense but Macs are overpriced computers(you could build a PC to better specs, for less money, and more functionality) for people who want to burn their money. you need a "PC"(even though a mac is just an overpriced factory locked PC) to properly
    play most games.

    Macbooks are not very powerful or functional compared to desktop mac models.

    Xbox one x fixed MAC address

    The guest network is isolated from the home device wifi when enabled. If anyone is setting up a similar router please remember to add/allow the MAC of the device you are using to configure your router on your home network before saving the settings. Sounds
    obvious but it caught me out.

    Xbox on Windows 10 set as home xbox

    Hi, there is an option similar to the home xbox on windows 10, but it's not from the Xbox app, it's in the Microsoft store app. To set it, launch the Microsoft store app, then goto settings - then find offline permissions and turn it on.

    Anyone know if cloud computing takes extra bandwidth?

    i'd imagine it'll be similar to how Seti@home works, but in reverse, if i recall correctly, Seti@home would send your computer a file that was on average of 64k, then you computer calculates the work load and sends it back to Seti, on average, a file about
    300k. my understanding is Azure will provide a similar function in reverse with the physics calculations and AI's, your Xbox One sends it to the "cloud", it processes it and sends it back. should require only a small amount of bandwidth.

    but that is my understanding, may not be correct.
