    To all,

    Can anyone tell me why the Midnight Lounge has the titles of movies blanked out as shown in the attached screenshots?

    Blue boxes with white xxx over the squares where movie title should be. As you navigate around the page -like selecting one - they will flicker for a split second and you can actually see the titles under there......then it quickly repaints the block out.

    Sorry I didn't readily see a way to insert the screenshots in the body here....it looks like they will be attached.

    Thanks,

    FYI, I removed your second picture for adult content and I think your first picture illustrates fully your question anyway.

    I can't test this myself, because in my state I am not allowed access to the Midnight Lounge at all... so I can't say if you are experiencing a bug OR if it is intended behavior intended (albeit in a seemingly misguided way) to self-censor the display of the full titles.

    Stewart,

    Sorry about the adult content. I put the second picture up because it was 2 deep into the menu system. I didn't notice the content because I was so engrossed in showing the issue. But you're right the picture left shows the problem.

    To provide more details:

    I'm a Texas Dish customer.
    my receiver is a VIP 722
    completely unlocked
    hiding nothing (that I know of)

    I know this menu system will show the titles because when I first got this unit to replace another a few years back it worked for about 1 week. I have placed a few calls to customer service to no avail. This issue is hard to describe and I really think there wasn't a great deal of care on the other end to resolve the issue. A picture (of the problem) is worth a 1000 words and they have no desire to receive or make provisions to receive the picture.

    Perhaps some (DiRT) members can respond?

    Thanks,

    pkd7423

    Since you say your receiver is unlocked and not hiding any content... the only thing I can think of to try is pulling the power cord and letting it sit for a minute, then plug it back in. Maybe that will shock something back to working correctly.

    It looks the same way here on my 722. Everything is unlocked on mine also.
