You seem to be the only one who didn't know what he was talking about though...


There were at least two. For a long time I never bothered to read this thread because I figured that even if the forum had quit at midnight, it was working fine again now. But since it kept bouncing to the top, I finally read it today. Still not 100% sure what it's about but I tend to stay away from parts of the receiver that look like they involve paying additional money. :)

I hadn't thought of that :) I guess if you just read the title of the thread you might think it was a DBSTalk thing.

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.

How close to Hamilton county are you? Perhaps your zip code (which is how E* determines your location) is partially in Hamilton County.

EDIT: I just happened to have an Ohio map here and looked up Ney. You are nowhere near any of the affected areas! Unless Defiance Ohio also has a XXX restriction here is no reason for you to get blacked out.

I am having the same issue. I live in California so my location should not have an affect on it.

Same in Texas. It used to work but now does not. Texas is not on the above list of blackout states. ??

There's a known issue with the Midnight Lounge service. It's down for most everyone.
