Reports showing bad info?

I have seen one other thread on this a while back and was hoping there is a resolution. Our family center reports are showing times in numbers of days on a couple of games, mainly MW3 and Black Ops. We are trying to use this to monitor and manage our son's play time, and this is making it all but impossible.

Hi there. I'm sorry that you're having trouble managing your play time reports. An easy way to keep track of Xbox play time is to use the Xbox Family Timer feature. Using the automated timer may resolve the issue you're experiencing.

To set the family timer:

On your console, go to Settings, and then select Family.

Select On to turn on Console Safety.

Enter a 4-button pass code using your controller.

Select Family Timer.

Select whether you want to set a Daily or Weekly timer.

Move down to the time period and use the left stick to increase or decrease the time period, then select Continue.

Select Save and Exit.

When the Family Timer is on, notifications will appear 1 hour, 30 minutes, 15 minutes and 5 minutes before the time runs out. These give players sufficient warning so that they can save their games. However, when one of these notifications appears, you can add time or disable the timer altogether by entering the pass code.

You can learn more about Xbox Parental Controls at support.xbox.com/.../xbox-live-parental-control.

The problem with this is when the person isn't here, or at his other parent's house. That's one of the main reasons we moved to a family account. If there was a way to limit time of a family account no matter where they were, that would work, but I don't think that there is (Feature Request?)

The only other way that I can think of to use the same Parental Control timer across multiple consoles is to use the same Hard Drive in both consoles.

Greetings, blueadept333! Do you have the option of removing and re-adding the account to your family pack? There is a five-day waiting period after you've removed someone from a Gold Family Pack before you can add them again, however I'd be interested to know if this helps resolve the issue.
 

Otherwise, I would recommend looking into the timer feature that Stead mentioned. Thanks and let us know if you have any further questions!

I tried the removing and re-adding this didn't do any good, the problem still exists. As for both parents setting timers, that just doesn't work when one parent doesn't care as much about homework and such.

Any update on this as my ex-wife is allowing my son to stay up till 4 a.m. in the morning on the day I am due to pick him up and hence he won't get out of bed. Looks as though we might be going to court and I could really do with some reports to show how irresponsible she is.

Sorry, ILLuM1NaTU5. Besides a family timer on both consoles or on a transferrable hard drive, there are no built-in Xbox time-based restrictions or play logs. Certain games, however, retain logs of total playtime within the game itself. Please consult the Xbox Live Terms of Use at www.xbox.com/.../LiveTOU before taking legal action. This is not legal advice.
