    Question about the "my xbox home" setting


    So let's say I have one account with some games and another also with some games, however one of the accounts has a game I'd like to use on the second account, if I made the account with the game I had wanted to transfer the home xbox it would transfer that
    and any other game I don't have on the second account.

    However this reverts if I change my home xbox to the second account correct?

    :)

    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

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

    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!

  4. 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?

    What about the

    ? Is the account in question set to home console? How many other accounts are on the console? Let us know so we can get the account back up and running!
