Default Can't play Tiny Tina DLC

The situation:
2 Xbox 360s
2 copies of Borderlands 2
1 Season Pass tied to my account

On "Xbox A" I purchase and install all DLC using my account. Everyone who plays BL2 on "Xbox A" can access the DLC content with no problems.

On "Xbox B" I can successfully download and install all the DLC through the main menu. However, when I try access any content in game via quick travel there is a * next to the name it it tries to get me to re-purchase the content.

How can I fix this?
As I understand it, anyone should be able to access my DLC on the original system I bought it on, and I should be able to access the DLC on ANY other xbox as long as its my account.

You will not be able to access DLC on any other console except for the one you made the original purchase on; this is due to the way licensing works.

Simply put, there are two components: the part attached to your profile and the part attached to the console. You need both to be happening in order to be able to access the DLC that you purchased.

Signing in to a profile on another console and downloading the content on to that console does not install the console component of the license on that console (which will still be on the original console).

If you want console B to additionally have access to the DLC, you'll need another profile to purchase the DLC while signed in on console B.
