Well after I played Gears for a couple of hours my bro wanted to play. So I set him up on live and he puts in madden. Well it came up as a DVD. Then said if you want to play this game put it in a 360. So we turn it off and turn it on and same problem. I hit the reset button and then I see the Xbox 360 have a full red circle! I'm like oh jeez, I'm trying to remember which combo is the red light of death. So I turn it off turn it back on and it works. So yeah got a little worried.

Btw do I have to pay for live twice for 2 gamertags?

I think its really stupid if you cant use the same xboxlive. So you have to pay for it twice? How ******ed.

Oh, yeah you can use your old gamer tag from regular XBox... I thought you wanted to know about having two gamertags off one account...

don't worry if you got three lights, then you're ****ed. But a full red circle is nothing serious i believe.

No worries bro...let me see here I'll check 360 instruction manual bro and post again but a full red ring isn't bad as far as I can remember its just a loose cable or some junk.

OK....

Manual says you need to check your AV cable.

So your alright for now.

i think you need to pay for a new account. Some games let you play side by side with a guest but your live account still needs to be signed in. So yea my bro plays off my account and it pi***s me off since he didnt pay for any of it and im not that big of a prick to just make the system off limits for him.

Wow that is the only flaw I think. I think its ******ed if we both want to play online we both have to purchase Xbox live. So freaking stupid. I dont want him to use my GT : /
