Why is there 3 console IDs on the transfer license page when i have 2 xbox's?

one old xbox going to sell/trade in and my new one which im currently using but why is there a 3rd console ID? it doesent match either of my consoles and on the transfer license page the unknown ID is higlighted so im assuming the licenses would be transfered to the unkown console?

Ever played on a friend's console? That would likey be the reason for the other console ID.

If you are worried about your licenses going to this phantom console then you can now do a license transfer on your console, thus ensuring you know exactly which machine they are going to.

Sign in with your account and press the Guide button on your controller. Move to the Settings blade and pick Account Management. Scroll down to License Transfer and in a couple of clicks the process will be done. You'll then be prompted to set items to download again which is sometimes needed in order to refresh the license, however if the content is already on your console then all that will be grabbed is the new license data. 

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
