Could they make Active go away too?

Nope. You just have to be VERY CAREFUL not to push that button!!!

I don't see an ACTIVE button on the future remote.

I've only used Game Lounge once or twice during the free previews.

Not surprised at all that's its being discontinued.

My dad loves the active channel to watch the weather even if it's a long delay, The darn looping video is annoying though, also to watch the local lottery numbers, Even though the receiver is internet connected to use TV Apps for weather he's so used to the active button.
