I'm wanting to put two consoles in one room so I can run them through my distribution system. I hate running downstairs to switch out games. I will rarely be playing both at once. And I'm using one gamertag. My question is this

How do the controls know which one to turn on?

What controls? Your post is so vague as to almost sound like spam.

when you sync your controller to your Xbox, it will only respond to that Xbox afterward. The controller will not control or turn on your second Xbox.

If you want to have the controller control the second Xbox, you will have to hit the sync button on the second Xbox and pair it to the controller. However, when you go to sync to the second Xbox, since the controller is still paired to the first Xbox, you can turn on the first Xbox when you turn on the controller. So to avoid the issue, it's best to have dedicated controllers. Or don't switch the controllers too often between Xbox's.

DLJ-vague what else do you want a model number. I believe most people know controls means controller. I'm going to have dedicated "Controllers" for each one. So from what onlysublime said I should be fine. If not please let me know. Thanks again.

DLJ-vague was overly rude but I thought you meant remote control, which is how I control the Xbox in my media closet. (The answer would have been to turn off the remote control option in the settings of the other Xbox, but that wasn't the question biggrin.gif )
