  1. Two Xbox ones - help with sharing games


    Hi,

    I’ve been trying to set up both xbox’s to allow them to use each others games and in future only by the one! I have set them both up as My Home Xbox and created their automatic sign in, by following a You Tube Video my friend had used and it worked, but
    i don’t think it has worked for me! Is it because they are set up with separate email accounts?

    Help please??

    :)

    All of the games should be listed in Games and Apps as either already installed or Ready to Install.

    You can only set one console as your Home at a time. So you would need to make sure the console you intend to share with is set as your Home console (your account no longer needs to sign into that console since it is set as your Home). Then you can use
    your content as long as you are signed into live on the non-Home console.

    Let me try and explain it for you.

    No matter what console a profile is signed into it will always be able to play its games and use any of its subscriptions. Each profile can set ONE console at a time as its home xbox and any other profile on that home console can play that profiles digital
    games and use any of its subscriptions. Also keep in mind that each profile can switch which console it has set as its home console FIVE times a year.

    So in your situation lets go with this.

    A1- your account

    A2- Son 1 account

    A3- Son 2 account

    C1- Console 1

    C2- Console 2

    A1 has all the games and subscriptions attached to it.

    If A1 sets C1 as his profiles Home console then all 3 profiles can sign in and play all of A1s digital games and use any of A1s subscriptions on C1. With no problems.

    If C1 is the home console on C2 ONLY A1 will be able to play his digitally bought games and use any of its subscriptions.

    Now the way that A2 and A3 would be able to play A1s games and subscriptions on C2 is that they would have to sign into A1s profile and keep A1 signed in then switch profiles to A2 or A3s account at that point they would be able to play any of A1s digital
    games and use A1s subscriptions. Keep this in mind though each profile can only be signed into one xbox one console at a time so if A2 or A3 are signed in with A1s account on C2 at the same time they are so that they can play A1s games then if A1 signs into
    C1 his account on C2 would be signed out and whoever was playing one of his games would be kicked out of the game.

    I have now changed xbox 1 to the home xbox and logged out. I have come to the other xbox and taken off the home xbox and logged this one in as his brothers, but it shows his game name not what I want to see.

    How do i get to see all the games which are on the Home Xbox? They both have Xbox live?
