    As of this week the Midnight Forum stopped working on our 722.

    I get a 943 error that says this programming is not available in your area.
    Tech support says Ohio law is blocking anything above 1x. I can find no new relevant law that says there is now a block in Ohio.

    Anyone heard anything on this? I actively monitor the political scene in Ohio and I haven't read anything on this.

    It has been blocked since forever in NC so I don't even know what I'm missing. I find these kind of bans of content to be sad and unnecessary.

    This is a known issue and is being worked on. Please submit something to a DIRT member so they can send in a report.

    Edit: To clarify, Midnight Lounge (VOD), not Midnight Forum :)

    Did you see the post #5 with information about restricted areas? If you are not in any of these areas, Matt suggested you send him a PM so he could submit a trouble report to our programming department. Thanks.

    Because there is no "Midnight Forum" that's what we couldn't understand. Midnight Lounge we understand. :)

    I still have no idea what you're talking about. Is this a channel or what?

    You may live in a state, like I do, where the content is banned... Or if it isn't your cup of tea maybe you just haven't looked.

    Actually, I don't really do DishOnline. Just never bothered.

    Just would have been nice if the OP had included a little more detail on what the thread was about.

    I don't do Dish Online either. Tried the Midnight Lounge once. When a new software update comes along I try to check every function to make sure everything is working. After the last software update I noticed that the Midnight lounge gave me the message mentioned in my first post. That said, there was no cause and effect. The software update came along the same time a new law in Hamilton County, Ohio went into effect. I don't live in Hamilton County SO the Midnight Lounge should not be blocked. If I ever get a hankering to watch cheap, grainy, hey isn't that movie from 1983, porn I want to be able to do it.

    I would love to hear back from Dish as to exactly what the problem is. Sounds like a bug or quirk in in the way the blackouts are handled.........

    The Midnight Lounge on the 722 is in the same menu area as your DVR recordings.

    Hamilton County, BTW is noted for its battles over porn, adult entertainment.

    After reading this thread I checked my 722k and it says "This feature is not available for viewing in your area". On post #5 Texas is not listed. I'm not that worried about it but I wonder why its not avalable anymore.

    Always fascinates me that people who scream about government interference in their lives will happily pass laws that interfere with other peoples' lives. But we probably shouldn't get into that can of worms here.
