Windows 8 doesn't connect to Xbox live correctly - won't update gamerpic
Name change took ok.
When you change your gamerpic on the Xbox 360, then go to your windows 8 PC, click on Games, it signs you into Xbox, shows your avatar, moto, bio, location, new hat, etc, but will not update your gamerpic.
There is no option to log in and out of the application Games for your avatar.

There is no 'log out'
There is no 'update'
There is no 'clear cache'
There is no way to click on the gamer pic
There is no way to update or change the gamer pic
Seems pretty bleak, like something is missing. Is there a technical bug feature thing that's preventing it? Like...maybe the image was bought on the xbox, so it's like against some law to display a bought image or copyright material on another device????
You know that can't be it because even when I go to the start menu, if I have the green games metro button large, it shows my updated gamer picture and a picture of a controller. But once I open the thing, the gamer pic is the old one from a year ago. Very
very very odd.
