    I have a US Xbox and want to use xbox live in the UK. A couple of posts on this forum recomend buying the UK xbox live starter kit (the one with the headphones and year sub) as it was "region free".

    This was not the case, it was region coded and would not run.

    How do I get to use xbox live with my american xbox?

    Cheers.

    I use a UK Live kit with a US Xbox - have done so for some time.

    The only problem I have had is that I have never been able to download content for Clone Wars and there was a delay on being able to download stuff on Mechassault. It appears that Microsoft can block (or don't anticipate) downloads from a combination of US box and UK kit - or indeed a US box with a UK credit card.

    Sorry - didn't answer your question! How about getting a US kit from DVDBO?

    Thats a last resort because I have already purchased the uk live kit.

    Does the live kit come with a code I could use? If so, could I use a trial disc and then use the live kit code? Hope this makes sense, I am clueless with this live stuff.
