Hi folks,

In order to get the Xbox one Kinect sensor to work with voice commands I had to change the location to English because NZ doesn't seem to be supported.  However, when I try and access the Video or Xbox music application it tells me that my location does not match my Windows live account location (which is NZ) and prevents be from doing anything.  If I change the system location back to NZ, then the Xbox Kinect sensor no longer works with voice commands.

Has anyone had any luck with getting these to work together?

You can migrate your live account region online ( I did it a while back for something else, but it was all good on the xbox 360 too - it just shows me extra apps, better deals on games and movies, etc ;-)   As far as I could tell there were no real downsides, though admittedly I don't use the xbox all that much. 

I think there's a limit on how often you can do it though.

Thanks for that, it has the slight issue of not allowing music and any money (in account) to be moved. I'm also not sure if all of the new regions services will be available here.
