Since I'd be signed in remotely on one box, one son should be able to play on the home box as his own log in since all games on the home box are available to anyone but could the 2nd son sign on remotely as well. If my second also sets the main box as his home like I did could he play remotely while I play remote and his brother play on the home box? Simply put one digital purchase and triple share? I'm paying for 3 live accounts and noticed that we all get free downloads when available like 3 copies of Ryse for buying early and 3 Freebie codes for Sunset Overdrive. So what do you guys think?

There isn't supposed to be a way to share with three XBOnes, only two. You can't be signed in on two XBOnes at the same time so there is no way for it to work.

Another sharing question. I'm considering getting another ONE for my kids to play in the basement (when I let them out of their cages). Will we need to modify our system to save all games in the Cloud so we can pick them up and play from either system? And since I download all games I assume I'll have to redownload the ones we want on both systems to be on the second ONE. Man, Comcast is gonna looooooove me. Thanks in advance.

For this generation I believe all games save in the cloud and follow our gamertag. I don't recall any settings to click. I sign in to our second box and everything syncs.

As for my 3xb question I've never had to sign into the home xb to be playing remotely. So what prompted the question was the ability to set that main xb as my home and my sons home as well. I guess I could try it now if they let you change it back at another time. What complicates things is I assume if I accidentally buy a game under my sons account on my home xbox then I shouldn't be able to play it remotely with out signing them in.

What you do is sign into your sons Xbox One as the Home console so he can play any games you have on that system. You sign his account into whatever system you play on. This way no matter what account buys whatever it is accessible on either system.

Just a heads up.. I was going through the Xbox Movies and they Have the HD Ex Machina with bonus for $12.99 right now. I pulled the trigger on it since I loved that movie. Plus if you are a rewards member you get an extra 5,000 credits for every $5.99 you spend through July 26th I believe. Not a bad ways to get some Extra $ for a later purchase down the road.

But having too little storage is a problem, not having more than you need .

What external drive did u buy? I have the 1tb internal drive but just wondering. Also is there a limit to the amount of space a external drive can have like with the xbox 360 which i believe was 16gb or 32gb

Thanks for the heads up. Any idea what resolution Xbox Video supports? I've only rented a movie on it once and it looked like 720p. I can't remember if my receiver said the output was.

Also, do you know if Xbox Movies supports Ultraviolet?

Many thanks.
