Trying to play a split screen multiplayer game like Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville on XBOX Game Pass Cloud Gaming on my new Samsung 2022 Smart TV, i discovered that when pairing two controllers to the TV, they both control the same user/player. So pairing a second controller with the hopes of playing split screen multiplayer/couch co-op is impossible. As it doesn't assign a different user/player to each controller.
Very fruatrating, having the same proble trying to play it takes two. Both are connected, and when trying to play local there is an option to press a to join. Pressing a acts solely under one profile, if only we could select another guest option
