Everyone, my brother was told that his HR20-100 (piano black) does not support game lounge yet and ordering from that box is not possible. That explained his problem.


Just ran into a problem. I ordered the All Access pass earlier on the phone and activated my account online. But I can't get the receiver to recognize it. Still will only let me play trial games. Im resetting the box now to see. Another thing RhinoGL I was told earlier that IF you are playing and the game gets stuck to reset your box first BEFORE calling in. Reason being I was told is that resetting the box is the advise they would give and it will just save you a call. Just an FYI, bro.

I couldn't order with the remote either. I called CS and activated it. I played the games for a bit then went to do something else. When I loaded Game Lounge again the "blue, subscribe" button was back. I called Game Lounge support and they said for whatever reason Game Lounge had been canceled from my account. They re-instated it and so far all is well. Not sure why Game Lounge accesses the phone line so often however. I know it updates your "token" count etc. But thought it would do so through the satellite.

Since I don't have XBox or PS I for one enjoy Game Lounge and thank D* for providing it. I do hope it gets more "polished" as it goes along, it is rather primitive and on Solitaire I've noticed if you play it very much as I do, you get into a cycle where you are repeatedly dealt the same three or four hands, nice if they are winning hands, these however are not. The other big issue I have is I'd like the sound effects on the games, I enjoy the XM classic channel played in the back ground it's a good choice, but I still want the option to have just sound effects and only sound effects when I play the games. Don't enjoy Monk's chanting or opera when I'm trying to play Uno.

Other then that, thanks D.

Nah, all the Satellite does during Game Lounge is 'load up" your interactive app.

And the D10 series does sound effects just fine and dandy. No music in the background at all. I wonder why the D11 and HR20 is having a problems with them.

Turns out that was my problem too, somehow it has become cancelled so they reactivated it for me too. Gave them a suggestion to add a slot machine game while I was on the phone. Tech guy said it was a good idea and wrote it up and sent it off while he was helping me. I have no use for an Xbox or PlayStation so for me as well this is pretty good. Thanks D*!!

Good idea on the slot machine game. I'd like that one also. Wish they'd leave the Roulette game in the rotation on Game Lounge more often, that's kind of fun too. Heard Monopoly will be coming eventually, would like that as well. :)

Go on the site and suggest it. The guy said the GameLounge people DO listen to suggestions.

Good Lord, how do you throw a dart or bowl a ball with the remote?

I have enough trouble trying to play solitaire. Windows Solitaire is a lot easier to play.
