Games on demand -tied to one profile?

Hello,

I purchased a game 'on demand' and have been playing it from a usb stick (full hd) just fine.

We have two Xbox in the house so I lent it to my brother to play in another room, it would not work, giving an error message about connecting to marketplace.

It does work on that machine when I sign in.

We are on the same family pack subscription

Are games on demand restricted to one account/profile?

I have tried to find out but there is no faq or help section for Games on Demand.

Any and all DLC is licensed to both the gamertag and the console that it was first downloaded to.  This means that although your brother can access the game fine on your console he will need to have your gamertag signed in on his console in order to play it.

There is no workaround for this.

What you could do is just switch the consoles around.  That's an easy enough fix.  Or do a license transfer to the games room console.

support.xbox.com/.../download-content

Once the license transfer is complete, all you'd need to do is just redownload the games to the new console and everyone would be able to play it there.  And games on the living room console would be limited to whether or not you were logged in.
