You can use your gamertag and Xbox Live account on more than one console but you can only be connected to Xbox Live on one console at a time. Click HERE to read about recovering your gamertag to your consoles.

Using the account, you can only be signed into Xbox LIVE from one console. Not two at the same time, I'm afraid. The account can be used on two separate consoles if you're not signed into Xbox LIVE, though.

Hope this helps!

But is it really nesseary that we have to pay twice for gold membership in order to eg. Use Netflix? If my kids want see a movie in the living room and my wife wants to see a movie in the bedroom where we also have a xbox, she can't - cause that will throw off the kids watching a movie in the livingroom... I dont think this is well thought through?!? Or is it just me? Why give us such "penalty" just because we have been so kind to Microsoft to buy two xboxes?

Good question... And no solution to this yet, I can tell you. There should be some kind of household group for the Live membership, so that you're able to add your wife and old enough kids to this group, so they must not pay for a gold membership too. That's just my suggestion.

Family plan requires all 4 accounts to remain on the same dam xbox or else my brother and I would each have second accounts for when our friends come over.

Hey hitman36r! You have to initially download those family pack profiles to the Main accounts console but after that they should be able to move anywhere!
