    Two Xbox consoles, one tv or two?


    My husband and I fairly new to gaming. We got a Xbox one S for xmas. We got it to play games with each other and to be able to play onlines games with friends and neices.

    several questions:

    1. do we need two consoles and two tv’s to be able to play onlines games with each other?

    2. if we want to play two player games do we each have to have our own console? Or can we play on one console?

    3. can we put two consoles on one TV? And play online with each other?

    * we each have our own profile.

    :)

    You will need two TVs for two consoles.

    Some games support split screen play, but not all.

    1. Yes if it is an online game unfortunately you would need 2 consoles. Each would also need an Xbox Live Gold membership unless the game is free. However some online games like Fortnite support split screen so you could both play on one console.

    2. If it is a 2 player game, you just need 2 controllers connected to the same console.

    3. You can put 2 consoles into a TV if you have 2 HDMI ports. However, to play together, one of you would need to use the remote play feature on the Xbox app. I believe this only works for the mobile version and needs iOS 13 or above.

    Xbox One S will turn on but blank tv screen and console turn itself off after about 10 seconds. Help!

    Did you make sure that the TV is connected to the correct HDMI port on the back of the console, there is two ports on the back of the Xbox One console one for HDMI in from cable / satellite TV box, and one that outputs the signal to the TV.

    ideas of some Accessories or fix that xbox one needs

    So basically, your asking if the Xbox One can output one game to two different TV's so that you and your grandson can play co-op games from one console, but on two different TVs.

    -

    The answer unfortunately is a big fat no, no console to date has had that feature and I really cant see them adding the feature as its a hardware issue, it would require the console to have two HDMI outputs, and it would require the console to work twice
    as hard.
