Hmm.. I recall switching my harddrive between my 2 consoles multiple times.. and I remember it NOT signing in my profile automatically... But now, it magically does
It would piss me off though, because I'd boot up halo 2 (since it was already in my disc drive) and I'd try to sign into live, and my xbox live account wouldn't even be there! It took me a while to realize I had to sign into my profile in the 360 dashboard before it would work.
Anyways, in between switching my harddrive from 360 to 360... I realized my halo 2 maps (downloadable content) would not show up when choosing a map to play on.... and also that the map "Lockout" had a different picture. So what I did to fix this was delete all my halo 2 content, and cleared my cache. I rebooted and everything worked out fine.
So you're probably wondering, where am I going with this? Well, ever since doing that it seems like I always log into my profile automatically. (After I log in the first time manually then reboot) So what I'm getting at, is PERHAPS clearing your cache would do the trick.
Again, I have no idea if clearing the cache is what allowed me to automatically log in, but it seems to be the most logical reason seeing as how I have not done anything else.. except log into xbox live through halo 2 multiple times.
So, if you don't mind clearing your cache, I'd suggest trying that.. seeing as how it SEEMS to have worked for me.
Not sure if you know/memorized how to clear your cache, or if you actually have tried this yourself... but here's how anyways:
Go to the system blade and then memory. Press Y on either the HDD or a MU and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a blade will pop up saying: This will perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices. Do you want to continue? Pick yes or no.
