I not long ago bought a secondhand xbox 1 and was given the owners password and login details so could have access to his previously bought digital games anyway am just selling it as i now have a slim etc and have set up his the profile on the slim fine and started downloading the games but on the original xbox i wiped everything off ready to sell and noticed even with no profile on there the games are still showing in the ready to downlist list and i tried a couple and still played why is this? i thought they would only show once i was logged in on the account.

you need to deselect make this console home then delete the profile as even with the profile deleted it's still set as home.

Yes. Undo the home console that's currently been set

Thanks guys have had a look at that link so final question as im now selling this xbox and i have the email address and login details for use on my slim which is working fine logging in etc still is there any harm in leaving the original xbox alone and letting the next buyer have access to them still as it doesnt affect me because he cant do anything to stop me as its me with the email and login name.

And yes i know the original owner could still change my access via going to his xbox account via a laptop/pc tho he said to me he had no use for it anymore etc so cant see him changing it so i cant login anymore.

Well, as you have his account details/password, you are effectively that person and you effectively own those games, so if you want to play those games (on your new Xbox) and still have them available to the new owner of the old Xbox you'll have to be online/signed in using those details. If you're offline, and your new Xbox isn't designated as that accounts Home Xbox you won't get to play them. And if you have your own account where you have some digital games that adds to the complications.

If there is no risk of you ever not having an internet connection and being able to be signed in on the 40+ games account, then it should be fine. But if I were you I would designate your new Xbox as that accounts Home Xbox, and therefore disable them on the old Xbox you're selling.

Hope this makes sense

Many thanks for the advice that makes sense of it exactly what i was getting at so are you saying if i make my new xbox as home whilist logged in on the original owners account it will allow me to run them without having to be signed in on my new account etc.

Punctuation dude. :)

But if I get what you're saying; Yes, if you make your new Xbox the 'Home Xbox' of "Billy 40 Games", those games will be licensed to run on that Xbox no matter who's signed in. (You could delete His account). You can then sign in on your real account and play those games and yours and gain achievements. The old Xbox could no longer play those 40+ games.

From info I've gathered, you can make the new Xbox also your 'Home Xbox' to be able to play your games offline too if that's needed. I've not tested this but there's lots of Reddit threads confirming it. To confirm, that 1 new Xbox can be multiple people's home Xbox. Not necessary though if you're always going to be online.
