    Xbox Companion/Live games with different Live-ID?


    Hey,

    I use a @Hotmail.com address to log into Windows 8. That way I get easy access to Skydrive and Contacts. I have connected my Facebook account and have access to that as well.

    I use Another @live.se address to log into my Xbox account and onto my Xbox.

    Somehow it would seem I can not use my Xbox Live ID to activate the Xbox Live and Xbox Companion Apps in Metro while logged in with my @Hotmail account.

    I would like the possibility to access Xbox features in the same way I access my Facebook features.

    Any know way to fix this yet? Any known fixes coming up?

    I don't think that can work in Windows 8 at the moment...

    The only way would be to use the live.se account as your main Microsoft account to access Xbox Live, or log out of the Hotmail Microsoft account, manually add them in for the apps you need with it, and use the live for the rest.
