dinchy87 says:

Has anybody else problems with Xbox music on its Windows 8??? i have serious problems with it on my desktop. It opens only the import screen and there is no way to get back to the xbox music strat screen. i can not play any music now. i have reinstalled it but the same. :(

WinFan1 says:

No issues here bro sorry

Sugarnotch says:

Try reinstall again, make sure you have media player installed (desktop). When I was running RTM I was having issues for all kinds of stuff with no WMP :(

dinchy87 says:

i tried but still nothing. seems like i have to reinstall my windows 8. or refresh it...

dinchy87 says:

i fixed the problems, it has to do with microsoft and where you registered your windows live id (microsoft account), mine was set to germany, on the install of windows 8 i selected Bosnia and Herzegovina as my location, where i really am, and so i "lost" the ability for some services like xbox music and i think xbox games. i switches the regions back to germany and now it works! But Microsoft should have told us about that all... So will many users be not happy with Windows 8 if they dont know what happens with they system.

fraztto says:

Wish I was there just for the free 920.  Thanks for the link WP Central.  I really enjoy watching that guy (Charlie?) give the breakdown.  Great speaker.  Great Product.

sdreamer says:

Seriously... a free Lumia 920 and a Surface RT >.> I would buy a Lumia 920 if I could... AT&T needs to let Lumia and Titan II users upgrade early.
