So I have what is a rather amusing issue, albeit frustrating.

My wife and I both have XBox One accounts, but mine is the only one that is Gold. We set my account up, and I'm the one that logs into Crunchyroll. However, the moment I had her the controller to decide what she wants to watch, CR forcibly signs her out of the app and asks her to log in, or use the app with ads.

When she hands the controller back to me, it signs back in and recognizes me. While very funny the first few times, it has become very frustrating from a viewing continuity perspective. The Netflix app 1. doesn't care about who has the controller. 2. has profiles for different people in a household. Replicating this functionality would be very useful. I realize the latter might be rather difficult, but the former should be trivial. Just use the account of the Home XBox instead of whoever is holding the controller. Otherwise, the behavior is rather erratic.

Looking forward to a resolution to this issue, and to continued marital harmony by not having a love triangle in the house because Crunchyroll only listens to me.

Have you tried having her log into the CR account while she's holding the controller?

That messes with my Live ID being associated with the Crunchyroll subscription.

Why don't you turn off the kinect sign in functionality or just the kinect in general when using CR since that is what's causing the problem?

Also gold accounts are system wide now. As long as the primary account is a gold account every other account on the system will function as a gold account would. That's shouldn't really factor in though since MS got rid of the need to have gold to use most apps anyways.

Because CR is literally the only app that does that, and I'm not breaking one of the primary reasons I have an XB1 just so Crunchyroll doesn't break.

This is replicable behavior that obviously shouldn't happen, as my account is the "home" account and therefor the Gold account is the system one. No other app does this but CR.

If there is a way to tell the Kinect to turn off just for CR, then I would be willing to do that, but I don't see an app-specific option like that.
