    Question about removing profile and setting my Xbox as my home xbox


    I'm running into an issue where I'm not getting notifications (friends signing in, new messages, etc). One of the troubleshooting steps is to try and delete your profile off the xbox and recreate it. Easy enough BUT I'm curious, if after doing this will
    I again have to invoke the "make this xbox my home xbox" option? I think you can only do that twice per calendar year if I'm not mistaken.

    The reason I'm concern about it is I currently have 2 xbox One's in my home, both are set up with this so all my digital games are on each. I just got the second one over Christmas this year, so I've already done it once recently and I plan to replace my
    older non-S model soon with a S so I'll need to do it again soon.

    I don't want to whack the profile willy nilly and screw myself being able to use the home xbox thing. I was hoping someone knew for sure if the profiles is tied to the hardware and/or if this happens, if support could let me do it again.

    :)

    Doubt Home Gold

    Hello Dofusyosi,

    By "Home Gold" I assume you are refering to sharing Gold status to other accounts by setting an Xbox as the "Home Xbox" through Settings > Personalization > My Home Xbox.

    The gold sharing does only qualify on the Xbox that the account in question has set as it's home Xbox. Any other consoles would be unable to receive the shared Gold status, even if the profile was logged into another Console.

    I hope I was able to answer your question, if not, provide any other information you have and I'll see what I can do about your question farther.

    Thanks,

    Zilther

  3. Question about the "my xbox home" setting

    Every gamertag has the option to set one console as its xbox home. When this is done, any other gamertags on the console will have access to the purchased games content and subscriptions the the gamertag purchased. So you can have two gamertags using one
    xbox as a xbox home.

    That being said I am not sure on your question. Are you asking if you can have two gamertags both using one xbox as their xbox home?

    Here is more details on the home xbox setting. My Home Xbox Setting on Xbox One | Share Your Xbox One

    Hey klutch14u! Removing your account and re-adding it should not affect your home console designation. You are allowed 3 home console designations a year. Thanks!

    Gamesharing not working

    Hello Sarin,

    Thanks for coming to the forums. When you set the console right for
    home console
    , the box should say remove my home Xbox. So for example if you are setting your profile on your console, once you change home console for you it will say Remove my home Xbox. If it says Make this my home Xbox it isn't set as your home.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hi CrazySimmons.

    Thanks for your response. There are no consequences or charges for using the Home Xbox feature; if you prefer not to use it, you can remove the previous Home Xbox association by setting your profile to home by visiting Settings>Personalization>My home Xbox
    from there you can select "Make this my home Xbox" to set your profile as home.

    I hope this information helps.

    Purchase History Linked to XBoxOne Console not Windows Live account ?

    I reckon it's because of the Home Xbox thing. With Home Xbox, all profiles can play content on an Xbox that a profile owns if that profile has set that particular console as their Home Xbox. Your last profile would have set this console as its Home, and
    therefore all content it owns is available to download.

    If you would want to reset this, there are two options: 1) log in as that profile on the console and go to Settings->Home Xbox->"This is not my Home Xbox" or 2) use that profile on a new console and go to Settings>Home Xbox>This is my Home Xbox, which would
    remove its Home status from the first console.
