So I called up Xbox customer support and asked them some questions. Just need some answers from the community as well.
1. Add-ons for mature rated games can be downloaded from a child account?
2. Child accounts can't download anything regarding demos or trailers, even if you get parental permission?
3. Account I made via xbox.com will work on a 360 after merging, but doesn't get free 1 month gold?
4. Ethernet cable that comes with Pro/Elite is only 20 feet long?
5. If using silver account to get achievements, but online, if you disconnect it will boot you from the game onto the dashboard and make you restart the game over from wherever you last saved?
6. If using the silver account but offline, you can get achievements but they won't be updated if you go online?

1. When you make a live account you have to give a mature Windows Live account, like [email protected] (just an example) with this account you can go to the settings, log in and change the settings so you can download mature rated games. (You have to let your parent do it, or make a mature account yourself, as i did)
2. If you get parental permission you can download everything
3. Sorry i dont understand this question

5. If you disconnect from Live nothign will happen, you can just go on with the game
6. If get an archievement while offline, it will be updated the next time you go online.

3. According to the guy, when I made an account on xbox.com, I would have to "Merge" it with my 360 in order to play, but it would not have free Gold privileges for 1 month because it was made online and not from a 360.

I didn't know that you would only get gold if you made it off the Xbox and because it was quite convenient to make it earlier.
