1 account, 2 xboxs

Last September, I purchased the new xbox to improve the wifi connection while in my room.  I kept my old one. I recieved a kinect for Christmas and use the old xbox in my basement where I have the room. I have an xbox live account and want to play on both systems with it, but recovering my profile can sometimes take more than 15 minutes.  I have a flashdrive which I am going to try and see if i can just transport my account on. 

If that doesn't work, is there any way to have my account work with both xboxs at the same time, or a faster way to transfer my account between my systems?

You can only have your account on 1 xbox at a time. The easiest way is to use a flash drive.

Only option is to recover or use the flash drive until the later in the year if and when MS put the Beacons and Cloud Storage inplace.

•Beacons. We want to make it easy for you to connect with friends over your favorite games on Xbox LIVE, so we are introducing Beacons to the service. Beacons are a way to tell your Xbox LIVE and Facebook friends that you want to play a game on Xbox LIVE. By setting a Beacon, you tell Xbox LIVE what you want to play. Then, Xbox LIVE lets you know when friends are playing or want to play the same game.With Beacons, no matter what you're currently doing on Xbox LIVE your friends know that it's ok to ask you to play your Beaconed games. Imagine sending out a Beacon to let your friends know you're interested in playing Halo, while watching a movie on Netflix. It's about making it easier for you to share and discover games and multiplayer opportunities with friends on Xbox LIVE

•Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile. Here at Xbox LIVE we listen to your feedback. We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox LIVE account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends. Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox LIVE gaming experience even when you're not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your "game saves" securely in the Xbox LIVE cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console's hard drive. Gone are the days of "gamertag recovery." Now all you need to do is sign in, no matter where you are!

Has this stance changed at all? It is still a pita when the kids want to play in one room, but I wanna play too on our 2nd system. Yes, I bought the family pack, but that doesn't transfer my gamertag or my saves/achievements.

Hey there Rock! You can now simply download your profile to both consoles and then use whichever one you want to. There is no longer a need to transport your profile on a USB drive except to prevent download times on new consoles. I hope this helps, let us know, thanks!
