So I have a complicated situation but will simplify it down to ask the question!

Imagine 1 Xbox and 2 live accounts. Account 1 buys some arcade games and DLC that account 2 can also use because it's the first console on which the purchase was downloaded.

Want to replace Xbox but still have both accounts able to play the games and use the DLC. If I just get the new one and re-download from purchase history then account 2 will no longer be able to use them!

So what do I have to do??

You need to do a license transfer. You can only do it once a year so make sure you are sure when you want to do it. Here you go: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live/marketplace-and-purchasing/download-content

Clarifying that because a lot of people don't know that.

Nope, it's once per year unless they changed the policy recently.
